Woody's was the big deal before Bucee's and still my favorite place to get jerky. After all, it's the jerky capital!

We love their jerky (peppered for sure), jalapeño cheese bread, oatmeal raisin cookies, fountain drinks, clean restrooms - oh my! They sell all kinds of good foods - peanut brittles, jellies, etc. Pretty good burgers, too!

When you walk into Woody's Smokehouse be prepared to see so many choices it could make your head spin. You definitely should go to see all the jarred veggies and smoked meats they have there! I should also mention their fudges & pies-yum.

I drive back and forth to Dallas. I have certain places that I always stop along the way. Well, I stopped at a new place called Woody's. It was fantastic! Gas, clean restrooms, and a couple of delicious treats. The staff was very kind and...More

I don't think so. As with the other person who answered, there are so many other things to eat that I never thought about wanting fries!
