The ribs at Oakwood were done to perfection. Fell off the bone without seeming like they were overcooked. Sides (beans & corn) were done well. Being a carnivore from Huskerland it's not always easy to get me to rave about ribs/steaks but this place is definitely worth the drive!

What can I say about Oakwood, not a better place in town!!! The place is always packed which is a sure sign of the quality of their food. I love the chicken dinner and of course the baby back ribs. Which by the way voted best in town again this year!!! If you passing by be sure to stop in!!!!

Great bar b q. Ribs fall off the bone. The only bar b q restaurant that we take visitors to. Getting 1/2 a rack and chicken, sausage, or pork. I prefer the ribs and the sausage. But, it's a personal choice. Service is great. A wonderful place to eat.

Ribs had great smoked flavor. Particularly enjoyed the caramelized sauce on the the ribs. Also had the "beef" which isn't brisket, they didn't say it was, but it lacked and didn't compare to the tenderness and flavor of the ribs. They really know how to handle a crowd!!
