This is a local place that is superior in their barbecue. I had the half rack and enjoyed it very much. The price is excellent. The service was very good. The atmosphere is very nice. It was a Saturday night and they were very busy but it was worth the 20 minute wait. If you are in the area you... More

I do not understand the lines around this place most days. Their food is good, their service is fair but it's not special in any way that we have found. The baby back ribs (cannot even get the Saint Louis ribs here) are very fatty and I don't like swallowing globs of fat, yet this is what most people come... More

We are quite sorry that you did not like our baby back ribs. I must say, we do not get the complaint very often that they are fatty. I only wish that you would have sent them back so we could offer you another. Of course, some folks don't like to do so, I understand. Thank you for your review. More

Food is consistently good, as well as the service. During the winter (snowbird season), the wait to be seated for dinner can get quite long, unless you go before 5, or after 8. Love their ribs, smoked chicken, and pulled pork. I highly recommend Oakwood.

If you got a hankering for ribs done right, then this is the place for you. I visit them at least twice a month and the ribs are always the BEST. Pared with 2 side dishes & garlic toast and you got a great meal. They usually have a special going on Sunday-Wednesday on the ribs. Save some $$$ and... More

we've been to Oakwood several times and they're always good. this time they catered an event we attended. the pulled pork was delicious and the chicken was very moist. their slaw has a different twist to it, they add a little pineapple, nice touch.

The touch on the slaw (with the coconut and pineapple) was used to make it island style for a luau type event. We do not normally do this at the stores. Sometimes guests will request this type of slaw for "off-site" events. We are glad that you liked it. Also, thanks for the continued support at your local Oakwood. More

Met friends for dinner here. Ribs were excellent. Meat fell off the bone and sauce was perfect. I would give this place an excellent rating but the server could have been a little more on the ball. I ordered a side salad and before I had barely eaten any of it, my meal arrived. Servers shouldn't serve the meal until... More
