We are regulars at this restaurant and will continue to be. Best BBQ around but plan to arrive early as it is packed, both lunch and dinner. The baby back ribs are the specialty but the other choices are equally good (pork, chicken, turkey, sausage, etc.) Reasonable prices, casual atmosphere and typical BBQ restaurant décor.

We make it a point to make a visit to the Oakwood Restaurant every year.The barbecue is the best ever. Don't think you will get seated right away but the wait is worth it. The sides are fabulous. Try the collard greens and the okra. You will not be disappointed.

Oakwood is a place to go and have fun. You have to enjoy eating ribs with your fingers and tasting the meat and sauce. We always sit at the bar so as to enjoy the show put on by the staff while cooking the ribs. The staff is always attentive and supper friendly. Most have been there for years and they know their business. Its like a ballet watching 10 people operate in the open kitchen. You cant beat the prices and they have specials through most of the summer season. I only enjoy the ribs so I can not tell you about the rest of the selections. This is our favorite rib stop and the most important thing in a restaurant is to be consistent...Oakwood always meets the test. If you want to judge how good the restaurant is...drive by the parking lot at any time of the day and see the number of cars that occupy all of the spaces.

I got a combo platter and everything was decent. Nothing blew me away except the fast service of the meal. Disappointed that a place with such high reviews doesn't have the two essential proteins in the BBQ world-Brisket and St Louis ribs. Trip advisor let's me down once again for BBQ.

We stopped by at 7:30 PM on a Sunday night, not knowing the restaurant closes at 8 PM, but they said come on it, and the service was excellent. There were few other diners at this time, but the waitress did not make us feel rushed at all.
The pulled pork and chicken combo was spectacular, with sides of sweet potato and baked beans. The full rack was $3.00 less than regular price, due to a Sunday special and it was over 12 bones. Took some of each home for a lunch the next day that was more than adequate for a full meal for one. We definitely will be going back for more.
