It's difficult to find good quality BBQ in NC. You might find that surprising but we've searched. The food is good and offers more than one style of BBQ sauce. The atmosphere is "down home" and not very fancy. Decor is quaint. Try to go when they have the pickin' parlor in full swing.

My wife and I enjoyed a meal and the entertainment at Woodlands Barbecue on our last night in Blowing Rock during a recent trip. We decided to go more for the live music than for the food. Neither disappointed. I had a barbecue plate with pulled pork, green beans, and baked beans. She had a pulled pork sandwich with fries. It was all tasty. The night's performer sang classic country songs and did a nice job of playing to the audience. This place is a keeper.

Woodlands is one of my favorite places in Blowing Rock. The people who work there are the nicest people you will meet anywhere. If you go plan to go hungry as the portions are large and the barbecue is excellent. I would recommend the corn on the cob as well.

Overall: FannnnTastic! I originally discovered Woodlands by accident when I was new to the area, found myself with a SERIOUS barbeque hankering, and charted an emergency course to the nearest 'Que spot I knew of. Little did I know the treat that awaited me.

A previous poster hit the nail on the head in saying it's just "no frills barbeque", plain and simple. They have mastered a very simple menu perfectly. Plenty of options available, but all revolve around the simple, down home classic staples, and if you've ever had the misfortune of eating at a place where they manage to botch the Southern basics, you KNOW there's a lot to be said for just doing the classics with a master's hand. Their fried okra is to die for and their ribs are UN-BEATABLE! The chopped bbq itself is not the best I've ever had, but still great (their ribs just leave it in the dust though), and they have a killer "bbq for 2" deal that will leave you and a friend/spouse/lucky winner ROLLING out of the building, to-go boxes in hand.
(Not to be forgotten: They offer several excellent variations of quintessential bbq sauces).

Do NOT expect opulence or really any type of classed up atmosphere boasting a professional, formally trained wait staff, etc. It's a bbq joint... but they do it well! If you're about the bbq, don't miss this one!
