A handful of tables available & with limited parking, this BBQ has great food. But you may prefer to take delivery in the Summer as Rita's also shares the lot

We made reservations for 14 people and were treated very well. The place is small and we took up one side of the restaurant but that didn't bother the server. The food was great and the kids were happy. We had the wings, which were very good. Some of us had the ribs,each made differently, all delicious. Some had the... More

Affordable and fun. I took my son here for lunch when we were in town for the day. Large servings and nice choice of sides. The pork ribs were tender and juicy.

I was told about Woodchucks BBQ by a friend and he was raving about it so I had to try it. And it did not disappoint! Everything was very tasty, we got pulled pork, ribs, beans, mac & cheese, cornbread, the works! Reasonably priced and you get a TON of food. I had easily three meals from mine. A must... More

This is a weekly standard for our family. Everything on the menu is pretty good, from the ribs to pulled pork/chicken to burgers and even now various hot dogs.

We ended up at "WoodChucks" after having had two separate issues of our order being shorted at a nearby Rib Joint, and after complaining for the second time and management failed to call us back we decided to try "WoodChucks". We probably had spend upwards of $700.00 a year on outgoing orders at the previous rib place and they lost... More

We've eaten here twice. Once we sat down with friends and the other time we ordered take out. My husband had the ribs and said it was OK. He's had better. You can get them wet, spicy, dry rub or naked on all the ribs or chicken entrees. I had the fish tacos. I don't see them on the menu... More

So I came with my wife and we got the brisket and ribs. They were okay. I have enjoyed the ribs more at other local places like Hickory Hog or Papa V's. Overall the food was good but not great. I may try this place again in the next year or so.

The area does not have much in the way of good places. Tried take out from here and was not impressed. Ribs ok, sauce is bland and the pulled meats are mainly drowned in sauce.
