I spent many days here during my time at ASU nearly 30 years ago and the quality and service have not changed. I had lunch here on a Friday - not too crowded. The chopped pork plate with Carolina vinegar-based hot sauce is a staple. The "hot" cornbread made with jalapeño bits is always a good compliment to the other... More

We stopped here on the recommendation of a friend. It was ok, not the best tasting ribs, but quite lean and tender. It's very casual with picnic tables and benches.

Woodlands had been tradition for years. We had the brisket tray and the woodlands super burrito. Excellent! Always have leftovers!

Great barbecue and really varied menu. Hushpuppies, order them for an appetizer and as a side. Trust me, you'll be happy. Pork and beef brisket BBQ, sliced or chopped. Too many choices!

Late lunch about 2:30. Place was still crowded. Service took a little while. The food was great. We all had the chopped pork,collards, and regular slaw, plus one more side and either cornbread or hush puppies. Bought some to go for a second helping at home.
