Between Dickie's, Lucille's and Wood Ranch, we have three very different styles of BBQ dining presented. I love them all under the right circumstances. I think that Wood Ranch as the best ribs in town. I love their peanut slaw and they have a great bar. Their sauce is a delicious but a little too sticky which all bbq sauces... More

First and foremost the food is top notch at this place. The service is VERY solid, and the general decor is very nice. The only minor issue is with the value. Yes I know this area has very few other choices for higher end BBQ places, but still it felt like the price was a bit higher than one would... More

Dear Mike G., I greatly appreciate your comments. I understand that value is a benchmark of dining out. I recognize that everyone works hard and does not want to waste money. Unfortunately, the economic pressures on restaurants have only become greater. I hope that Wood Ranch continues to provide value for you by making wonderful food and providing great service....

I was visiting from Florida and my west coast family decided to take me here for Easter. Must say that the service and food was great. Lisa our waitress was awesome. She was patient and was very helpful with questions we had. Thanks for the great BBQ experience in place which is home away from home!

Warmly greeted & seated by the hostess team. Waitress Sarah friendly & knowledgeable with the menu items, helpful in suggestions. I thought the flavor was pretty good, but overall average BBQ.

I expect this kind of bbq in Texas. I couldn't believe how delicious it was. Cooked perfectly and flavorfully. The service was awesome and the prices were low given the quality and taste of the food.

We sit at the bar and hope that our favorite bartender, Adam will be tending. We order the baby back ribs with mashed sweet potatoes and corn and the extra blackened salmon with a baked potato Then we share. I have been going for years and have always had the heavenly baked potato. How do they do it I wonder?
