What They’re Known For
Every Wood Ranch restaurant features “foods that make America great”, as the chain’s management says. The menu features a wide range of meat-based dishes, most of which are contemporary favorites, from baby back ribs to Angus beef steaks and burgers.
Why Eat Here
Wood Ranch restaurants are designed with small and large groups in mind. The interiors are spacious while the distance between the tables make it easy to navigate the floor even when the restaurant’s packed with a crowd. The strategically placed lights contribute to a comfortable and cozy ambiance, as well as make appreciation for the food’s beautiful aesthetics possible.
The large bar area has several stools where customers can enjoy their alcoholic drinks while passing the time or waiting for their orders to arrive. The bar menu is impressive with plenty of beers, wines and cocktails, among others, which are available for persons of legal drinking age; varies by jurisdiction. There are also appetizers, such as artichoke dip, garlic bread, and shredded onions, which complement the alcoholic drinks.
The Wood Ranch restaurants are obviously great places to bring your family and friends for lunch and dinner. If possible, come here during happy hour because of the cheaper prices for selected alcoholic drinks and appetizers. You may just find that you are already full just from eating the appetizers but try to leave room for the main meal.
The staff members are friendly with the diners but without the nosiness that often accompany friendly service in many restaurants. Your orders will be taken quickly and delivered just as quickly; the kitchen staff seems to be working double time so your food arrive steaming hot or as warm as it needs to be.
The lunch and dinner menu is quite extensive, too, with starters, entrées and sides. For starters, the shredded onions and fries, spinach-artichoke dip, and fresh guacamole and chips are great for whetting your appetite.
The Killer Wings, which are available in 5-piece and 10-piece package, will awaken your senses with their juicy texture and savory flavor. Add the BBQ Chicken Potato Skins served with cilantro and red onion or the BBQ Sliders in your flavor of choice (e.g., BBQ Tri Tip, Double R Ranch Brisket, and Carolina Pulled Pork). Pair these with the daily soup for a complete meal, if you want.
The salads are a mix of meats and vegetables as well as herbs, dressings and spices. The Farmhouse Salad is a healthy salad of baby kale, red quinoa almond mix, and grape tomatoes with a balsamic vinaigrette. The BBQ Chopped Salad comes in two versions – chicken and tri tip – but the other ingredients like mixed greens, corn, and black beans with original BBQ sauce remain the same.
The Tri Trip Salad has peanut oil, gorgonzola crumbles, and mixed greens with a refreshing tomato and mint julep dressing. Many of these salads can be ordered in half or full sizes.
The best thing on the menu is the signature BBQ available in pork and chicken, which are served with two sides; a premium side is available for a nominal extra fee. The Tri Tip is as juicy as they come while the smoked brisket will make your mouth water just by looking at it. The Carolina pulled pork literally melts in your mouth and gives an explosion of flavor; it’s served with Carolina slaw and barbecue sauce.
Most of the meats have been treated with the chain’s signature dry rub and roasted over a slow and low fire.
For a change, customers can also order premium seafood dishes, which are served with an order of side; again, a premium side can be enjoyed for an extra fee. The choices include grilled balsamic shrimp, fresh Atlantic salmon, and freshwater rainbow trout.
Other items include the burgers and sandwiches, signature sides (mac ‘n cheese, fries, peanut coleslaw, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and roasted broccoli), and the premium sides (loaded baked potato and cheddar ‘n bacon). For dessert, the cheesecake here is among the creamiest we have tasted while its warm chocolate cake is chocolate-y without being too sweet.
