Underwoods is good food and all of the people working there were pleasant and helpful. The beef is tasty and the cobbler is worth the calories.

For a BBQ restaurant you don't get a huge amount of meat, but I suppose they want to make up for it by providing as many side dishes as you want. The all you can eat hot rolls are tasty, but the decor is very tired and a bit dingy. I went here as a child and really liked it,... More

I went to Underwoods Barbecue on Friday, November 28. There is a cafeteria line and also a separate "take out" line, which is where I went this time. I got a chopped beef sandwich to take back to my hotel...the sandwich was huge! I also got a special "meal deal" to take to a relative's house the next day...this meal... More

Always excellent in all aspects never had anything bad, hot rolls always fresh all the way to the table. The price is competitive and always clean eating area. The bathroom needs to be bigger, but other than that it's an excellent choice

Homecooking and all you can eat, but not a buffet. Similiar to a Luby's - they serve the meat and you serve your own sides. Eat the homemade bread. It's worth every calorie!

This was my second time to eat here but once was more than enough. I didn't want to come here again but it was my dad's birthday and he chose it. Otherwise, I stay far away. If you like meat, this is the place for you. If you like bland vegetables, this is the place for you. If you like... More
