Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill Restaurant Review

: Though a chain restaurant --- as opposed to an endearing mom-and-pop neighborhood favorite --- Wood Ranch is still reasonably authentic. The eatery’s most popular item, a tri-tip roast, is slow-roasted overnight, mesquite-grilled to order and accompanied by diners’ pick of side dishes. The beef is tender and flavorful, and, like most dishes here, generously portioned. On weekends, the restaurant offers a slow-roasted prime rib special that draws locals. They might begin their meal with pulled-pork sliders, baby-back ribs or barbecued chicken potato skins. One can also find burgers and sandwiches, including a version with the famous tri-tip barbecue. Meats are king, but the seemingly endless menu also offers lighter choices such as salads, fresh fish (rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon) and a few vegetarian. If you’ve still got room after your main meal, consider ordering home-style cheesecake or an old-fashioned cobbler made with apples or peaches. A mostly California wine list has more than 25 options by the glass, and craft cocktails include a margarita with fire-roasted jalapeños and fresh cilantro.
