Consistently great food at Oakwood

Oakwood is one of our favorite places to eat. It is among the best barbecue I have ever eaten. It rivals the places in Kansas City. The meals our priced right and the service is excellent.

Yummy ribs, enjoyed the baked sweet potato and garlic bread. I was glad to see a roll of paper towels right at the table as the ribs are indeed lip-smacking good. Loved the charming decor and our waiter was first rate.

Oakwood has the very best smoked meat of anywhere I have eaten, Their meats are cooked perfectly and I never add sauce because it can not be improved upon. The service is excellent and all are quick to help us. My very favorite meat is the chopped pork (dry, which is still juicy) followed closely by the smoked chicken. They... More

I worked at Oakwood all through high school and still to this day crave the food. I can attest to how clean the kitchen is and how great the people are. When I come back into town I always make sure to stop by and get some of my favorites including ribs, the cranberry walnut grilled chicken salad, or thin... More

We frequently eat @ the Oakwood on Route 27 south of Leesburg Florida. Everything is good but the ribs are terrific. Be sure and try the sweet potatoes! Service is fast and we're there so often that the wait staff recognizes us. Crowded during the season when the "snow birds" are here.

Oakwood is very consistent with food and service! BBQ ribs and pulled pork are always very good. My husband sometimes orders the delicious steak. Enjoy hearty Southern food at reasonable prices. The wait time to be seated can be somewhat lengthy due to the popularity of of this restaurant.

We have been multiple times to oak wood. The baby back ribs are undoubtedly the meal to go for. Service is prompt and friendly, and the food comes out quickly and hot. The sweet tea is southern sweet, so get an Arnold Palmer or half sweet half u sweet if you don't like it too sweet.
