Really enjoyed the pulled pork. All the other meals at the table looked good to. A huge place and the service was really good, fast and efficient.

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. The baby back ribs at the Wood Ranch are top notch, salads also very good. Have even bought their bbq sauce which is very good. Main issue is it gets very crowded, especially... More

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 come from Virginia where BBQ is plenty. I chose this restaurant because I had just left the Price is Right and this was in the shopping center where the parking garage was located. 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

This was a good restaurant, one of the first where the kids actually ate anything good. there was chicken and meat to their liking, and the vegetables that accompanied where well prepared and tasteful. Our server was very good and patient (it's always crazy at our table, 4 kids, 4 adults and only two of us speak english). I recommend... 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). The only comment about the patio is... More
