Woody's Bar-B-Q

Over 30 years ago, Woody and his partner, Yolanda, set out to create a Bar-B-Q restaurant where the meat melted in your mouth, the cole slaw was so fresh you'd think it was mixed at your table, and the authentic Bar-B-Q flavored beans were the best you'd ever had. So with their passion for Bar-B-Q and a dog-eared collection of homemade recipes, they went on to create a dining experience in the tradition of the South's great hometown Bar-B-Q shacks.
