This is my 3rd time here and the food has been consistently good. Ribs are smokey and sauce is just sweet enough. Prices are reasonable, service has been very good. Had craft beer in frozen mug it was great. Will be coming back here again.

Thanks so much for the nice review. We like to share them with our staff. Chef Sammy, Josie, and Pat represent 35 years with our company and take great care in making sure the ribs are tender and delicious. Our grill-masters finish the deal by charring them up just right. We are so glad that you enjoy them. More

They have the most delicious barbecue ribs! They are so tender and juicy! The sides they offer are different from the standard restaraunt sides. I especially enjoy the roasted corn salad. sam's slaw and the baked beans are also good. Once the crowds come back, you could wait a long time for a table.

I had the grilled chicken this time. I have been here numerous times and every time it has been great. Large portions of meat and choice of sides. Be prepared to take leftovers home. The baked beans and cole slaw are awesome also. You can't go wrong with anything you pick.

We love this place. The main place is on 441 but there is a branch called Oakwood Express on 301 which opened about a year ago. The latter is much smaller but still great. Love their onion rings and sweet potato fries. The regular fries are thick and juicy. Don't expect a fancy place but BBQ is great. Don't know... More

Everyone focuses on the ribs deservedly so. I'll give a pitch for the side dishes, which are excellent accents to the main. Give some thought to dessert, which is made in house. If so, leave room or think about splitting it, as they are generous portions.
