Excellent food and great service. Fell in love with their Gold BBQ Sauce -- very yummy! We had the ribs, BBQ beans and coleslaw. All just wonderful!

Great lunch specials. Delicious pulled pork and Cole slaw. Worth a visit especially for road trips. My husband enjoyed the Brunswick stew.

We ate there for the first time on a Sunday. I had the brisket sandwich and it was good, there was a lot of meat on it, and very tender. My husband had the baby back ribs and they were very good. They fell off the bone, and the sauce was good. They have early bird specials Monday - Saturday.... More

We were passing through and wanted something quick. As Woody's is a chain, we didn't expect too much, but I couldn't believe anyone could do BBQ so poorly. In all fairness, our viewpoint was skewed by abysmal service, but even so, the food has no right to be called barbecue. The corn nuggets (fritters) were pretty good. But we tried... More

I am profoundly disappointed you did not enjoy your recent visit to Woody’s Bar-B-Q in Lake Wales. You have my sincere apologies! Unfortunately as we head toward our “season” our restaurant does not lend itself well to those “passing through” or for someone “looking for something quick”. To give you an idea, all days during which your visit likely occurred... More

We have eaten here many times. The food is good and the service attentive. Some of our favorite items are the beef brisket and the ribs. They have a variety of BBQ sauces on your table. The price is especially good if you have a coupon.

My husband and I got beef brisket. It was somewhat good. My husband liked the hot bar-be-que sauce. I liked the grilled corn on the cob. Our friends got ribs. They were suppose to be the same size but one got 15 bones and my other got ten ribs. Our waitress was attentive. They gave us to go cups for... More

Went there with my whole family, including my daughter who is very sensitive to gluten. The server went above and beyond to assure my was safe and served an excellent meal. Of the eight in our party, all agreed this was a superior restaurant with great tasting food and truly outstanding service.

This is a no frills place to eat. It can also be a hit or miss on the meals. I have had great ribs and not so great ones there. My choice is to have my ribs meaty, moist and ready to fall off the bones. Sometimes they don't quite meet my expectations. They did on my last visit.

Always good service, Have never been disappointed. The Daily specials are always good and the 241's work great for my wife and me.

One of the chain Bbq diners. You can expect the same good food at any of them. Generous portions at a reasonable price. If you can't find a local place for a gamble on what to expect, then by all means go here.
