The baby back ribs are the VERY BEST! The mashed potatoes are amazing and the fiery green beans so fresh with a slight bite... the best BBQ in the area for sure! The parking is bad and you usually have to walk from the movie theater lot but that's probably a good thing after a BBQ meal. They have take... More

We can't pass up half price Wine Tuesdays, where we can get a bottle of Opolo Mountain Zin for less than Vons 😀 Try the brisket and tri tip. Try not to eat too much of the delicious garlic butter rolls...

Ordered tri tip sandwich with Mac n cheese. The sandwich was great but my Mac n cheese was served cool. It was stuck together so not very appetizing. So was my friends. She ordered a loaded baked potato and received regular then was brought back another potato with unmelted cheese and toppings. More attention needs to be given to food... More

Have not been here in a long while, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the service and food have greatly improved. The ribs and tri tip were both tasty BBQ and not dried out leather. Bread was equally good eating. The dessert was really enjoyable as well. Nice to find out that they can do a good job with... More

I love this restaurant, I normally have mushroom soup and tri-tip. The service is outstanding, the staff is accommodating, and I look forward to it every time I come to California. I don't care what so-called barbecue experts say, this is the best place I have ever found have tri-tip.

Great welcome and good service in very pleasant surroundings. We really enjoyed the light textured garlic rolls. My wife had the pecan wood smoked beef ribs which were tender and very tasty. My baby back ribs were fall off the bone tender. I thought that the sauce was okay but nowhere as tasty as that used on the beef ribs.... More

If you're craving great BBQ but want to eat while watching a movie or sporting event at home...Wood Ranch offers take out service that can be ready for pick up in approximately 30 minutes. The baby back ribs are the best in town...any town. The BBQ sauce is tangy and not too sweet. The garlic rolls are addictive and come... More

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....
