My wife and I enjoyed a couple of meals at Woodlands. The BBQ ribs were the best I've had not cooked on my own grill. They were full size spare ribs, smokey and juicy, with a real smoke flavor the chain BBQ joints have given up on in favor of factory cut ribs soaked in liquid smoke. The sides were... More

Great barbecue and really varied menu. Hushpuppies, order them for an appetizer and as a side. Trust me, you'll be happy. Pork and beef brisket BBQ, sliced or chopped. Too many choices!

Late lunch about 2:30. Place was still crowded. Service took a little while. The food was great. We all had the chopped pork,collards, and regular slaw, plus one more side and either cornbread or hush puppies. Bought some to go for a second helping at home.

Without a doubt, Woodlands has the best chicken wings I have ever tasted. We have been going to Woodlands for over 30 years, and it never disappoints. Everything they serve is delicious, but you must try the wings, even for an appetizer. Keep in mind when ordering, though, that each wing is a full wing wth both pieces! They a... More

We absolutely loved this place. Would eat in the bar, the bartenders were like friends. They had the best ribs in the universe, but then they changed and instead of baby back ribs started serving short fat filled ribs. We told the manager but he insisted that they had changed them at a request. Tried it once in the last... More

Always find a way to stop here when in town for lunch. Good food for a good price. Never leave hungry. If you enjoy true BBQ then give this place a try.
