Worth seeking this place out. If you make it to Pierron, you'll find it. I usually get a combo plate because I like to try everything. Very comfortable and family run. I've been there a few times and will be going back.

I have eaten here, mostly food to go, with family and also for work. All of the meat, except for the hamburgers, are smoked to perfection. The meat is moist and tender-although the chicken has a heavier smoke taste than the other meats. The soups...More

I have eaten twice at Wooden Tie including one carryout order. It is an excellent barbecue restaurant that serves tasty, well presented and good sized portions. Both the pulled pork and the brisket were great choices. Excellent friendly service was appreciated. Both times I visited...More

I didn't have the highest expectations in trying this new restaurant, but it was really great! The setting is a renovated home turned restaurant that is family owned. I ended up eating food off everyone's plates just to get a taste. It was all really...More
