We stopped in while passing through. The place was empty when we arrived. My wife and I stood at the counter while we heard someone in the back. We were at the counter for a while and a guy finally came out to help us. He wasn't very friendly and acted like we were bothering him. We sat down to... More

I would give this a 10 star rating if I could. I would say even if you don't like barbeque, you will like this Barbeque. That's how good it is. You have to try their ribs. Also spicy baked beans are heavenly!

We go to Woodie's usually twice a month or so. The food is always prepared fresh daily. Sometimes they sell out of items for that reason. They will not serve yesterday's food. The staff is always friendly and professional. I have never been able to finish all of a single meat dinner without being overstuffed.

Have used Woodys for everything from single meals to large event catering. They are fantastic to work with and their food is always top notch.

If you like genuine hole in the wall BBQ, go to Woody's. I've been to many such places across the United States, and this one's pretty good.

I visited the restaurant recently and came away with a just okay experience. The serving seemed small and I didn't leave full. The sauce was good. This restaurant lacks flair. I have eaten in several BBQ restaurants across the country. Some were small and some were big. But no matter what, the great ones always had personality.

I love BBQ and so am not averse to taking a chance when the place looks a little strange from the outside. Some of the best BBQ comes from the the little joints. Woodie's doesn't quite qualify as a BBQ joint. The joint ambience is just not there. There are no waitresses. Order at the counter but they do bring... More

Spicy beans are awesome. Everyone at the family reunion lived them. Ribs, pulled pork, the Woody Dog are my go dishes. Best place to eat in Mac.

Woodie's BBQ is not just good for McPherson (not a lot of non-fast food options in this town); they are very good BBQ! On the road, I seek out BBQ regularly because I want to be inspired in my own backyard cooking; Woodie's is one of my favorites! I can definitely recommend the spicy baked beans - thick, meaty, and... More
