Very great service and food!

My husband and I were visiting from the east coast and was recommended to eat at wood ranch and we are so glad we did! It was so delicious! I enjoyed the steak with loaded mashed potatoes and he had the chicken, Mac n cheese, and sweet potatoes. We sat outside by the fountain and loved it!

The tri-tip BBQ sandwich is unbelievable! So good. And you have to try the peanut cole slaw or the sweet potato mash. Both are great. Onion straw appetizer was enough for 6 of us to share. nice atmosphere and good food.

On a recent blistering hot day at the Grove, we trudged in with our 9 year old granddaughter in tow.

Needed something fresh and satisfying so we ordered the salads. The quinoa salad was perfect...fresh greens, avocado, walnuts, craisins, and quinoa with a light dressing. My husband and son enjoyed their BBQ chicken ranch salad. The rolls were warm and delicious. Service was friendly and attentive.

WR is a great casual spot for mid-shopping munchies. The lighting isn't harsh in the least and the drinks are nice as well.

I really like this place. My favorite is the combo meal. You can get a ribs, chicken, tri tip or pulled pork. The tri tip is always very tender and the meat on the ribs usually fall of the bone.
