Great dining experience with very affordable prices

We were staying with relatives in the villages and wanted to take them out for dinner. They picked the restaurant and we picked up the tab. 4 entrees and a couple pitchers of beer and the tab was $70 (b/4 tip). The beer was cold, the ribs were outstanding and overall it was a very good dining... read more

We have been eating at Oakwood for seven years. The food is consistently great and the ribs are to die for.

Ordered individual menu selections for 20. Food hot, ready, and boxed for carry-out on time when we arrived. Each meal labeled by name! Plastic and paper provided. And, the food was excellent, generous portions, really great BBQ! A perfect experience, period.

It's about time I found southern ribs worth writing a review! First off the casual atmosphere sets the mood. The waitress just sat down right next to us had a casual conversation. She said it takes more than twelve hours to smoke the ribs! Second, love it when you can just dig in the food with your fingers! Finally, the... More

First visit here. Had late lunch. Dining room not busy, we waited and waited to be seated, no one paid any attention. Go to order, and NO BRISKET!! In a smokehouse?? Ok, whatever. Ribs were cooked alright, but extremely fatty and rather tasteless. Sausage was tasty, but a bit undercooked. Husband said it was too salty. He thought the chicken... More

Thanks for coming in......We are glad you enjoyed the ribs, fried pickles, and chicken.....Only wish we could have given you pork that you would have loved. Sometimes our guests dont like the idea of sending it back for a replacement because it may seem a little embarrassing. Honestly, our guest should not have to send things back because that means...

We went here after 1) seeing it highly-rated on TripAdvisor and 2) getting a recommendation from some nice folks sitting outside the Dunkin' Donuts one morning. I had a bbq pork sandwich that was fairly flavorful even without sauce. The corn fritter starter with honey was pretty good, too. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Very satisfied for the price.
