Reviews for Woodyard Bar-B-Que

I was looking forward to some delicious barbecue and unfortunately the barbecue at the Woodyard is just so so. The sausage was plentiful and fairly tasty but the brisket was less than impressive. The burnt ends were already sauced and I'm not a fan of that. Tried the burnt end chili it did not live up to its reputation. On the plus side the staff was very friendly and courteous and if you ordered a to go order you got a 6-pack of PBR.

Drove in from Iowa on our way through to Texas. Was excited because reviewed on DDD, Anthony Bordain, Andrew Zimmerman. We did go last hour of the day. Potato salad great... Burnt tip sandwich was a bit dry, beans tater like they had sat and were not fresh. Wife's chilli was fair... Maybe it was because it was end of day. Covid issue in play. Would love to try again under different circumstances.

Had heard great things but was pretty unimpressed. Did the burnt ends, wings, and ribs. All had decent enough flavor but were so, so dry. Even the burnt ends, which were braised and served slathered in sauce felt dry and over-cooked. Maybe I came there on the wrong day or something, but based on that experience I'm just not sure where all the praise is coming from.
