“Woody's is the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

You walk into Woody's and you know this isn't some corporate run joint. Known for their fried chicken, their cheeseburgers can't be beat. Where else can you get half a chicken and fries for under five dollars?

“A tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

this is a tradition in Alton actually I dont think its open anymore. They had the best buttery fried chicken I have ever tasted. You wouldnt want to eat there everyday but once in a while and you would be hooked. That is if they are still open and if they are not its a shame.

“Hasn't changed in years...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

I went to Woody's as a kid, and at there most weekends. My fiance and I went there for the first time in 25 years or so, and it hasn't changed a bit. The food is great, I just wish they would update the atmosphere....it's very...blah.

“Best Double Cheese Plain Around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2010

I have been going to Woody's since I was five. I love the place. Family owned and operated. I hate the homogenization of America, but Woody's is one of a kind. Great burgers cooked to order fast and tasty. Good hot chicken and very fair prices. Take a date there for lunch. If she turns her nose up at it, get a new girlfriend that is not high maintenance.
