It's not fancy, but if you don't get there early, be ready to wait for a table. But, it's worth the wait. Their barbecue menu is as good as it gets. A must place to eat for all Leesburg area folks. There are more than one location. We only go to this (the original) one.

This is one of the better places I dined during a visit to The Sunshine State. I had a BBQ plate with cole slaw and fries. The slaw was top-notch. Could have made a meal off it and some hush puppies. The fries were fresh cut, not the frozen variety that is the norm these days, or appeared to be.... More

The food is good here. We have not located good barbeque in nearby Orlando. Better to order the meat chopped, and add sauce, than to order shredded meat with added sauce. The sauces are regular, hot and mustard based which is convenient under one roof.

A local "dive" known for their barbecue. The full rack of ribs is a favorite of all and can sell out on any given night. Not listed on the menu (but excellent) is the steak.

The food is good, wholesome BBQ. The staff and management are friendly and attentive. Their salads are super sized and delicious. I always ask for grilled chicken on the oriental salad, instead of the fried chicken that is standard.

I took my father and step-mother here for lunch, and I was very happy to learn the lunch special was the full rack for the price of a half rack ($11.00). Dad ordered baked beans and cole slaw for his sides; step mother got baked beans and corn fritters ($1.50 more), and I got lima beans and black eyed peas... More

In our opinion, Oakwood is the only place to get ribs in the general The Villages area. Great Ribs, good service, and friendly. And even a better buy on Monday and Wednesday's. Check it out.

Oakwood Smokehouse never disappoints. The ribs are the best. We also love the chicken and sausage. We've been to all the locations, and the service is consistently wonderful. We have taken out-of-town visitors many times, and they always rave about it. It's our go-to place to eat for lunch or dinner.

I was one of the first people to eat at their Leesburg location (moved) and still eat there 2-3 times a month. Tell them the way you like it and they will try to do it. I had a burger there for the first time last month and it was great, but I'll stick with the BBQ.

I don't know about the other entrees, because all I ever order there is baby back ribs. (In June they run great specials on them). but every side dish I've ever ordered is excellent.
