When you walk in to Woody Creek, there is a short maze to get from the door to the counter for no apparent reason. Oddly enough, they had 90's alternative rock blasting through the speakers. Although I enjoyed eating lunch to Collective Soul, it seemed a bit out of place here. They also have a small stage in one corner, so there must be live music from time to time.
I ordered up a 2 Meat Plate of hot links and bologna, with potato salad and baked beans on the side.
The baked beans were sweet and a little spicy at the same time. They might have come from a can, but still tasted good nonetheless. The potato salad looked like a big scoop of ice cream. It definitely needed some crunch to break up the creaminess of it all, and maybe a little paprika too.
The hot links had bright red casings that could have used more snap. The meat itself had a great flavor. There was definitely some heat here, but a few slices were much hotter than others. One slice even made my eyes water a little, so there is some issue with consistency.
I had never had barbecue bologna before, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It came in nice thick slices - no deli meat here. There was a great crispy char from the pit, and a decent level of smoke too.
Woody Creek isn't a place you should go out of your way to eat at, but it's probably a far better alternative to the mall food court if you're doing some shopping nearby.
