Woody’s Bodacious Barbecue

A Review of this “Goleta BBQ haven”

Where: 5112 Hollister Avenue, 805-967-3775,

What: Goleta’s hearty, all-American, belly-filling barbecue favorite.

How much? Lunch combos are just under $7; Rib dinners start at $15.

The dish: Sometimes an enormous plate of BBQ ribs or tri-tip is exactly what summer calls for. When the cravings hit, make a quick trip to Woody’s, the Goleta BBQ haven. The ultimate lunchtime indulgence would have to be the Bullwhacker. Picture this: a pile of tri-tip topped with melted jack cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce (ask for the Hotter’n Hell sauce if you dare), and onion un-rings inside a giant toasted roll. This one isn’t for the faint of heart! Practically everything at Woody’s also comes with a side of rustic-style fresh cut French fries that are perfect for catching the extra sauce that is sure to grace your plate. I’d also dare you to tackle a Giant Combo. Meant to feed two guests, the BBQ Orgy, for example, gives you BBQ chicken, beef ribs, pork ribs, and tri-tiip!
