Default Ribs



Would like to read some opinions from those who have visited Oakwood Smokehouse and ordered the ribs served there.

Seems whenever I drive by, (CR 441/27) customers are outside waiting.

Can it be THAT good?

Opinions, please.

The ribs at OakWood are delicious and it is the only place we will order ribs. We try to go only on Mon, Tues or Wed after 3:00pm because they offer the full rack of baby back ribs plus 2 sides for only $10.95. I just hope this isn't a special for the summer months. I'll have to remember to ask.

You don't see all those cars parked in that lot for no reason. They have discovered the ribs (smaller than those up north) but very good with excellent sauces. Love the "HUGE" drinks and the baked beans, too. The only place to go for BBQ IMHO.

I thought the ribs were good but there are times when I don't think I get as large a serving of sides or meat on the sandwiches as other BBQ places.

I think the food is good and the ice cold beer (in frosted mugs and pitcher) is excellent.

I'm reading the ribs at Oakwood are great and at reasonable prices. Perhaps that's a contributing reason Bono's didn't make it.

Hmmm, a testimony to the process of cooking ribs at Oakwood

Thanks for the input, folks.

What upset me about Bono's is that the construction people used it like a office an noon time. They took over the booths and used those walkie-talkies so loudly, you could not enjoy a meal. And then there was the breast- feeding women in one booth. Plus the waitresses got lost too often.

Oakwood does have great ribs.

Just my opinion ...the orginal ribs at Ruby Tuesdays are the best, I don't even enjoy ribs but I crave these!! Also they have the coldest beer in the Villages.

Best ribs around. Always great food, and service. They also have the best lima beans ever, and I'm not even a lima bean eater!

As a former retaurant owner, I highly recommend Oakwood ribs and also the side meat that can be added as a combo. They smoke pork ribs, chopped pork, pulled pork, sliced beef and chopped chicken and it can come wet or you can add your choice of sauce at the table. Lean meat, great flavor, good value in pricing and decent service. That is why there is a wait at meal time. Great corn fritters and sweet potato. YUM !!!
