(I went to the Woody's at 1958 Florance Ave. TripAdvisor does not list this location - I tried to add it but never heard back. Same establishment, different location.) I was working around Compton and knew there had to be a famous Bar-B-Que joint in the area. I asked around for days. I could have just put the zip into... More

If you drive by the place, you smell it from a block or so away. When you get the food home, it does not disappoint. Excellent bbq beef links and sauce, gooey mac and cheese and excellent bbq beans. While I did not get any, the cakes they had for sale at the counter also looked really good. Only thing... More

Simple, good and affordable! Don't expect anything fancy. Sides are small but ribs where well cooked and covered in good bbq sauce. Pick up extra paper towels! Very friendly atmosphere.

Woody's Bar-B-Que is a neighborhood "carry out" and a favorite "Go To" for the best barbecue in the area. The ribs are meaty and tender and the sauce is amazing. They serve a variety of barbecued meats (chicken, rib tips, links, etc.) along with a good selection of side dishes and desserts. My favorite order is the rib sandwich served... More

I went to Woody's Bar B Que in June 2014. I travel to bbq joints all over the country. I do not like to talk bad about restaurants. The young lady at the window was very nice. I would not recommend this place to any one at this moment in time. I had the beef ribs with yams. The food... More

My food was gross. I was given ribs saturated in bbq sauce which soaked through the bag. A big mess. My coleslaw was very soggy. Beans had no flavour. Paid $18 and was still hungry. Food made my stomach turn.:(
