Woodlands is a very good BBQ restaurant, the food is very good, the service is fast and friendly. The best part is the live music. When there is not road construction, their parking lot stays full.

This place came highly recommended to us by a local. I was not impressed! Our food came out barely warm. I have ate a lot of Bar B Que but this was nothing to write home about. I would not eat here again.

We enjoyed our meal but could not rave about it like we rave about 12 Bones BBQ in Asheville. I enjoyed the collard greens and fried okra but found the pulled pork to be on the dry side and not very flavorful. They have a nice selection of funny shirts and sweatshirts. Service was good but we stopped there on... More

This restaurant is the signature spot in this town. One of a kind, superb food, huge quantities, great prices, home-smoked BBQ, great sides, live local musicians (not bands), picnic tables, great service, clean, fun. Even the locals agree: this the THE restaurant not to miss if you visit Blowing Rock.

Good BBQ if you want a quick meal with average sides. Most children are happy here as well. Sometimes has guitar players & singers which is fun. Can be crowded during main hours.

Well, I guess I'll take some solace in knowing that we weren't alone when we experienced the server from hell. Thank heavens that this place has some of the most incredible BBQ I've ever eaten, otherwise they'd be out of business in heartbeat for the way they treat their customers. I knew I was in trouble when I asked the... More

Where to start? My husband and I both got the sliced pork plate. It was so dry that you had to drown it in sauce to be able to chew it. I couldn't do that because the sauce was to spicy. My daughter got the half chicken which was very good and the sides were good. The cornbread, both plain... More

Great restaurant just as you enter Blowing Rock. Easy access in and out of of it, on Highway 321. There has been road construction in that area but it is still easy to access and they have a lot of parking spaces. They have a front and back lot. We were there last weekend and it was busy but we... More

I purchased the plate that includes a little of everything. To my surprise, the chicken wings were the best things on it, followed by the ribs. The chopped pork was good, it was unseasoned but there is sauce on the table that you can add. I prefer sauce having been cooked on the pig. I must say that I did... More

Second time around for us! The first was twelve years ago, and now we found the same great barbecue we learned to enjoy! We had beef brisket...yum, half a rack of ribs and pork barbecue! Each diner said it was the best! Thought the curly fries were pretty good, too! Accompanied by a sweet tea, made a substantial lunch!
