We went for lunch. My 2 daughters and I all had the lunch special with sliders and sides. My husband had wings and a salad. We ordered the potato skins appetizer. We all agreed that our food was good. Service was excellent and the recommendations of the server was on point.

Have eaten at the Wood Ranch at the Grove and out in Westlake, many times. This location is next to Maggianos, which is nothing special by comparison.

When visiting the Grove a must for easy dining is Wood Ranch, the cole slaw is outstanding and the menu provides great selections for everyone on the group.

I sat at the bar and was promptly asked what I would like to drink. I love southern style sweet tea so I was hoping for... More

In mid September, 2014 I went there for the first time and I will say it will not be the last. It had been very warm (actually hot) out all day, so when we were offered a table on the patio that evening we decided it would be refreshing (we were not disappointed).

Not exactly an intimate setting, but all of the basics for a good barbecue are in great supply, with plenty of good for even the hungriest diner.

This place is real authentic bbq. The menu is varied and your choices are endless. I eat here on every single trip to Los Angeles. The service is great and they strive to take care of you. I'm looking forward to them coming to San Diego in the future. You won't be disappointed.
