“Best BBQ in the Boone/Blowing Rock Area”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

We have been enjoying Woodlands barbecue for the past five years. Their meat has an awesome smoked flavor that you cannot find just anywhere. Every time we had eaten their food their meat was moist and tender. They have a great menu selection, and something for the whole family. On my last visit to the Woodland's BBQ Restaurant, the food was amazing as always but the service was unfriendly, worn and tired. The gentleman at the register helped us with making our order to go. He was friendly and helpful when placing the order. As I waited in the bar area for my food, we sat there for about 25 minutes. The lady attending the bar brought our food and gave it to us. She forgot to get our drinks, so I asked her where they were at? Without giving a response to me, she just turned and walked away. She wasn't happy that she had to get them as well. She brought them back to us, and again, never said a word, just leaving them in our hands. Perhaps she was having an "off" day. One thing you can bank on, they have great barbecue food! I have had no bad experiences ever with the food.

“Always Great”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I have eaten at Woodlands since 1982, maybe 1981. It is always good food good service and good atmosphere. Nothing fancy just great smokey Barbecue and good sides. Always try to hit it when in the area.

“The bathroom was filthy and they had just opened for the day.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I hate to say it but this was a horrible dining experience; I wouldn't. return here even if you paid me. I could have gotten better quality food out of a can. I am a definate foodie and love barbecue done right. I feel that most food needs to be made from scratch with fresh ingrediants, anything less is a waste of time and unacceptable.

“We never miss it!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We stop here anytime we are in the Blowing Rock/Boone area. It's fantastic barbecue, great sauces, and hushpuppies. My husband is a fan of the white slaw. I favor the red slaw. Service is excellent - our drinks never get empty and a to-go cup is always provided. The ribs are a pleasant surprise as well. On our most recent visit, we had the children with us, and they give it two thumbs up as well, for the non-BBQ offerings - burgers, chicken fingers and hot dogs are apparently all well worth the trip in their opinion.

“great lunch”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We had a fantastic lunch here! Quick and friendly service; we were tourists and this place treated us the nicest out of everywhere we went. I loved the BBQ. It wasn't trying to be serious or fancy. It was just great BBQ. Delicious sweet tea and they offered us (without us asking) to refill our drinks in to-go cups! I was so happy to take that tea with me. Kept me happy all afternoon while we were sightseeing.
