Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill Restaurant Review

: It may not be smoked, but the meat here pleases many hungry folks who want down-home cookin', Texas-style. Slow-cooked meats like tri-tip and ribs are finished on wood-burning grills to impart some of the smoky flavor of traditional barbecue. There's also chicken and, on weekends, prime rib. The meats are sauced after cooking, not during, so you can opt out of it or put it on yourself. The salads are large and fresh with house-made dressings. Favorites are the tri-tip salad and the barbecue chopped salad. Beer, wine and mixed drinks are all available. The feeling is casual, day or night, with wooden booths large enough to accommodate a whole family. The décor at this location, one of the earliest branches, was redone and modernized. During the week, it's a fun place to go with the office crowd for lunch. On the weekends, the waits can be long due to all the families filing in, but service is always friendly. The menu is served all day, so you can go at off-peak hours and still have a nice, leisurely meal. Nearby locations include Ventura and Moorpark.
