In 1980, Woody Mills created a Bar-B-Q restaurant with his partner Yolanda. It was their mission to grill meat that melted in your mouth, mix coleslaw so fresh you’d think it was made at your table, and bake barbeque beans that set your mouth on fire. With this dream and an old collection of homemade recipes, they launched a dining experience akin to the South's hometown Bar-B-Q shacks. It's the kind of Bar-B-Q that you can call home.

What We’re About

Whether you're chomping into our Signature Baby Back Ribs, or tucking into a saucy slab of our spare ribs, you'll find that Woody's is far distinct from other big chain restaurants. Every Woody's food franchise has its own hometown atmosphere. We use choice cuts of pork and beef and farm fresh vegetables. Everything we on our menu is a Woody’s original. Everything from our secret-recipe Bar-B-Q sauces, to our famous slow-smoked Bar-B-Q dinners is unique to our food franchise.

Come On In

We encourage you to come taste our famous Bar-B-Q. One bite and you’ll never look back. Indeed, our customers keep coming back again and again. It's no wonder everyone says, "That's My Bar-B-Q!"

You could say we have a passion for Bar-B-Q at Woody’s, but we also have a passion for great franchise partners. With a low start-up cost and outstanding support, Woody’s is a great opportunity for those interested in running a food franchise.
