We don't eat out much, but this is the place we go to for our birthdays and anniversary. The food is excellent as is the service. Any special requests are honored without any hassles, grilled chicken instead of fried fingers. Awesome.

I'm the typical "BBQ Snob" who smokes his own and thinks it's the best on earth so I have a high standard for the few times I eat BBQ out. I'm from the south and didn't really expect to find good BBQ in California. What a shocker...the place was over-the top good. My server, Katrina was charming, friendly and great. The pulled pork was very moist and piled high. It came with sauce on it; I should have asked first because good eat needs no sauce. THe signature sauce is a yellow mustard, not half bad. THe baked beans were crammed with meat, bacon, onions, and chopped tomatoes... a new one on me but I'll tr it next time I make the World's Best Baked Beans. White chicken chili was white beans, chicken, bacon, carrots and a few other things. It was dang good. Katrina recommended the carrot cake so I got it to go. It would have served three people. This was an excellent meal.

We decided to change up our voluntary isolation and once a week we will order out from a new to us place. Last night was WESTWOODS BBQ. It was so easy...the help on the phone was complete, and chipper. We ordered one ribs dinner and 2 sides. The curbside pickup was so easy with minimum waiting. And minimum face to face contact. The ribs were very plentiful for us to share. But the flavor was not great for my taste buds. I prefer a juicy bbq sauce. These were a dryer Smokey flavor. Not my fav but they were not dry, meat was flavorful and again generous. The blue broccoli was a 5 star...very good. The French fries had the smoky flavor, again not my favorite but they were plentiful, fresh and reheated fine. (My husband ordered them). I’d rather select a different side from a delicious choice available. Overall this was a good start to our once a week order local take out. Try it!!!

BBQ had a nice flavor and the portions were huge. Service was good considering the shortage of waitstaff. Recommend getting a reservation in advance sine one can be in for a long wait. Restaurant is larger than normal and parking can require a long walk. We had a toddler with us and the waitress was able to fulfill our needs quickly..

Been going to Westwoods for years now. I have never had a bad meal or service. In the last two years, we have gotten our food to go. The food is always in good shape when we get home (live 40 minutes away). The portions are big, food very tasty and very reasonable. Love the rib and crispy chicken combo with the house salad. Their champagne vinaigrette is my favorite. Their curbside pick up option is very convenient. Eating in the restaurant is always fun. The vibe is robust and active. Great drinks!

I was looking forward to cumming here to eat some good BBQ but our server said that they only cook their meat with very little red in it so it was over cooked. I like my Meat so that most of it is Reddish Pink. Not sure I want to go back.

My husband and I are certified BBQ judges and we are very particular with trying new places. Our granddaughter was at a swim meet and it was a long day and we were craving BBQ. I asked a couple locals and hands down they said we needed to stop here. We shared a slab of ribs and the meat was perfect which is surprising for such a big restaurant. They have many meat choices and everything that past by us looked delicious. We can't wait to go back. Enjoy!

Wow! It was Friday night, the place was busy and it was GREAT. A little loud; it might help if the booth backs were taller to muffle some of that. Great music on their system. Food selection is very good, focused a lot on BBQ beef and chicken but many choices. I had the Fresno dip : most tender beef in a fresh roll with AuJus. Wife had a Tri-tip cobb salad that she loved. Servings were generous to say the least. Server was very attentive, food and drinks came quickly. No self-service billing (I HATE that) and she did a great job. It is rare that I give a 5/5 and this place deserves it! Not cheap… $70 with 2 wines and tip…and definitely worth it.

We were looking for a place to eat after hiking the sequoias of the Giant's Forest Grove in the morning and the sequoias of the Mariposa Grove in the afternoon. This was the perfectly place spot just off Hwy 41 in Fresno. They allowed our group of 14 to get a reservation and had a space for us in a small back room. As for the food, it was awesome. I love BBQ and I had the meat 3 ways, ribs and pulled pork. It was one of my favorite meals of the trip. Service was good with food but a little slow with checks. Still this place was incredible for our party of 14.

We went to enjoy the BBQ beef ribs (Nebraska Style). Also we request a artichoke for apperitive and a local beer. Big plates that we can finish the food and very tasty. Excellent service. Reservation recommended

The ambiance was really nice, the blonde, tall, Hostess on 12/13 was AMAZING, our server was good, (no one offered names so cannot say) and the food was delicious. Our only gripe is we asked for the Warriors game to be put on at one of the two TVs above us, which were playing the same exact thing right next to each other, so changing the channel would not have negatively impacted anyone, and after asking a second time, we were told “the manager said we don’t get that channel so we can’t” (the manager herself never looked at us or addressed us though). This would have been totally fine, except we could SEE another TV way across the restaurant playing the Warriors game. Not sure why they felt the need to lie about it, or maybe they were really that oblivious? It didn’t ruin our experience but as people who work in customer service management, it felt really disingenuous and tarnished the experience a bit. We’re from out of town, so not certain if we’d be in the Fresno area again, but if so, we’d likely go again because of the food and the lovely hostess, but not on a game night we care to see.

westwoods bbq & spice co. here in fresno, ca. I jotted down the names of four employees, kat or katerina, gena, ashley, & david. sister and I will return to dine on all the other options and choices. must have been a rare off day for ribs, raw vegetables. The employees and other customers made up for any discomfort. I hope and pray that all employees including management are well rewarded for being willing and able to serve. To serve well is a rare trait one is not born with. specifically the saint luis ribs and the baby back ribs. no one bats a thousand. we hope too see you all again soon, marty jb & my sister. plenty more space for more words... we will wait until next time. xx

We were very happy as you can see by my review in 2017. Since then we have visited frequently. We have noticed a slow decline in quality although the service remains very good. We had our usual...Burnt ends and a rib platter. Burnt ends were great but the ribs lacked any edible meat and were so tough you couldn't even get what little meat there was off the bone. I emailed and let them know we were disappointed but would remain loyal customers. I was even more disappointed not to at least get an acknowledgement from management. Now my loyalty is wavering.

Today while door dashing I got an order that took me to this restaurant, I made my way into their lobby and found a gaggle of people (who turned out to be staff) talking and on the their phones, none looked up, acknowledging me or said anything so I assumed they were patrons, I wait about 5 minutes and an elderly woman walks in and is instantly greeted and asked if she needs help (by the group that had just ignored me) I step forward and let them know I had been standing there waiting since before the woman walked in and was immediately shut down and told I would be helped after the woman …. Then after she was done ordering I was asked with attitude what I needed and when I said it was a door dash with the same amount of attitude I was asked for the name I gave the name on the order in full (first name and initial of the surname) and was asked “what was that? Huh? What? Over and over until she asked to see my phone… at this point it felt blatantly like she didn’t believe me and needed me to “prove” I was there for that order. I’m not new to dashing and normally I don’t mind showing my phone or diving for an order but this entire experience turned me off to this restaurant…. The customer service and attitude of staff is SERIOUSLY lacking.

Westwoods BBQ has the best food in town for casual dining. We have eaten at this beautiful place many times and we are trying to try everything on the menu. We haven't had a bad meal or a bad choice of meals yet. If your looking for a great meal, nice place to eat cool, well decorated, and the best food in town you have to give Westwoods a try. Donna
