We’ve actually been to Woodyard BBQ several times, it’s become our favorite BBQ. We learned about it from a food network show about hidden gems. Their chili is more burnt ends than beans. They started out(and still do) sell firewood. The owner started BBQing for...More

Good smoked meats and nice side dishes. We will be going back when we are back in the area. Lunch is great time to stop in.

Woodyard has been a staple for our family for years. Meats smoked daily send a aromatic delightful scent through the neighborhood that draws us in often. Perfect casual spot to hang out, relax over good food.

Woodyard BBQ is situated in an old house in an old working woodyard. There is an awesome outdoor brick patio with our brick smoker adjacent. This is combined with a cool wooden deck, an inside room with AC and heat and our BRAND new beer garden. This place is the real deal. Come say hi!
