“Not so good.....”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We stopped by for a quick lunch..Bad BBQ, tasted like left over beef and trying to drown it in sauce didn't help. Pre made and sliced in a bun. Store is cute but next time we will go 30 miles to Madisonville to Buccee's.

“Cannot be beat!”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Woody's BBQ cannot be beat. The flavor, location of business and access to online shopping really makes it appealing. I always try to stop on my way between Dallas & Houston. Plus the Gas prices are fair!

“Best BBQ ever”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Woody's is a restaurant and country store located within a Shell gas station. If you are planning a trip from Dallas to Houston, no trip is complete without a stop at Woody's. It is located at exit 164 on Interstate 45. They sell brisket sandwiches, plates, ribs, quail breasts, sausage-all freshly smoked and literally finger-licking good. They provide long picnic tables inside with loaves of white and wheat bread to accompany your meal. They even have packets of hand towelettes on each table and yes, you will need them.

Woody's is also known for there wide variety of jerky and cheeses. Hunter's can't pass Woody's without stopping. They also offer a huge selection of homemade jams, jellies, salad dressing and salsas. Whether you eat there or get it to go, it's always worth a stop at Woody's.
