We eat Woodys brisket often. It's always good. The service is fast and friendly. They will always let you sample anything new you want to try.

Fantastic, tender, moist , smoked turkey! Always great. Though everyone loves their brisket and pork, I enjoy the turkey every time and highly recommend it! Service is always fast, pleasant and accurate!

We usually carry out but eating inside is also enjoyable with plenty of seating. We love the "grab and go" special with the BBQ chopped beef sandwich, side, and a drink. All of the sides are great. The baked beans have a wonderful smoky flavor and the potato salad is homemade. We also will get half a chicken special with... More

We were very satisfied with our BBQ meals. Brisket and Chicken were on the table and we sampled each other's entree. I'd go again when I'm in Joplin.

This place appears to be a Rudys knockoff. Rudys is a Texas BBQ chain and this place seemed to take their format with a different name. The brisket was a little dry but I got the lean cut. It was tender so no complaints there. The ribs were nice and tender with a good smoke flavor. The sausage was good... More

We love bar-b-que, but were a bit disappointed with our meal. We had brisket sandwiches, the in between. Not too lean and not too marbled. The meat seemed very lean and a little dry. We used the sweet sauce, but it had a strong flavor that seemed to cover up the taste of the brisket. Order the beans only if... More

Try the burnt ends you won't regret it. It's something that is not actually on the menu. Trust me though you will be happy you did

Food is Ok, not the greatest in the world but OK for the Joplin area. The best part about eating here was the car show!!!

My wife and I had dinner here on our way through Joplin. It was well worth going a bit out of our way to enjoy their food. I had a combination plate of pulled pork and smoked turkey. Both were excellent but I am particularly picky about smoked turkey. This was a whole smoked turkey breast that was slice to... More

Enroute to the airport to head home we stopped off for some quick lunch. Both of us had the moist brisket sandwich with beans, and it was truly amazing. The meat was really moist as per the description, with loads of flavour, and with a little of the spicy BBQ sauce my sandwich was perfect. Worth stopping by Woody's for... More
