Excellent ribs

Nice, neighborhood rest. Clean with friendly staff. Ribs were moist, fall off the bone good. Sweet potato was cooked perfectly. French fries were a little disappointing.

Love their soup and salad, full salad bar. Lots of good things to choose from. The soups are different everyday and always hot!

Glad you enjoy all the food here! Thanks for taking the time to post such a rave review. You definitely will want to try one of our Sky High pies next time, even if you have to take it home and eat it later. The pieces are so big that you really can eat half today and the other half... More

We went there with a group of 8 and waited 1 hour to get our food while other tables that came in after is where getting theirs. Just a unorganized restaurant with food that is not worth the wait.

We then called back to Woody's and they said they measured the meat by ounces saying that they are only a couple ounces... More
