That is kiwi slang for delicious, and the food here is just that. The delicious aromas that waft from the building get your appetite going before you're even in the door.

I really liked the atmosphere,, which really got me hungry for some good BBQ. After a fairly long wait the ribs came and they were OK but nothing special. They were not very meaty and not very smoky and the sauce was sweet but not at all complex. Decent food, but I would not seek it out again.

We were there for a late lunch & it wasn't very busy but the server was excellent as was the food. Peanut coleslaw is one of my favorites. Splurged with a vanilla ice cream ball rolled in Oreo crumbs with hot fudge. Yum!

We went to Wood Ranch for my Wife's Birthday. Our daughter, son in law, and baby. They offered cheerio cereal, orange slices and banana as we were seated for the baby. The server was A1 as was the food.

Usual great BBQ also available for lunch. Had the BBQ chopped salad and my friend the triptip sandwich, both were great. Service was friendly and fast, when they brought the wrong iced tea replacements arrived immediately.

Had a nice business dinner here. St. Louis style-Dry Rub ribs were overly cooked.. charred and very spicy hot.. not so good. The Sauces were very spicy also. None were smoky or sweet. very good rolls, but no butter. Server was excellent. Baked potato was very good and fluffy. I ordered steamed broccoli and it was merely warmed, not cooked... More

On the par with Outback and a little more upscale than Applebees or Chilis. The food was outstanding. But the ambient noise was hard to hear over.

Consistently okay. I have had much better at other steak houses. I feel they are a little bit overpriced. Wouldn't say I have a favorite nothing stands out is exceptional. Staff has always been good.
