“Solid barbecue ... Drinks ...Service”
Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant isn't pretending to be anything but a rustic watering hole with better than average barbecue. Could use a lighter touch with seasonings, smoke and serving sizes but doubt they care enough to change. Good at what they do, they know it ... So why change?!?! Often my wife and I stop in for a margarita and beer before a film at the Bantam Theater just next door. Beer is cold tequila crisp ... What else did you want?

“HORRIBLE SERVERS AND BARTENDERS, GOOD BBQ”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

I love great barbeque and mexican food.
I refuse to return to this place until they get service staff that are friendly, and actually smile. They arent rude, they just dont give a crap about you, or what you would like.
The staff has been there forever, and it shows,
No such thing as hosptality here, but if you can deal with that, the beef ribs are awesome.
If the owner opens his eyes, and sees his dwindling business, he will get a better front of the house staff.
Many friends in the area agree...this place would do a heck of a businees if they could get it together.
There are several other barbeque places in the area, you dont need to settle for Woods Pit terrible service

This is just what you want for barbeque. It is good food, reasonable prices and ample portions.

“Great food”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

This place features a home-like atmosphere and really good service. The food is remarkable, and the prices are quite reasonable. Some of the clientele may make nervous moms hesitant to sit down with their families, but that would be a terrible loss for the kids. The row of motorcycles parked out front ought to indicate the friendly nature of this stop. We love it here, and look forward to each chance we get to eat at Wood's.
