One of our party was famished and really wanted to have BBQ. As my wife & I had eaten breakfast not too long prior to coming here, the many (many) meat dishes offered appeared to be more than what we would want. We settled for the "Small Plates" sliders and found them to be tasty.

Have been eating at this restaurant for many years. Food and service is consistently good, which is the best compliment I can give a restaurant. The food is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Meals are large enough to share.

The tri tip sandwich is enough for two, but I ate the whole thing myself. We enjoyed the prime rib, shrimp, burgers, tri tip plate and the... More

This place is awesome. Must be the best BBQ place for miles, as it is ALWAYS busy. The staff are well trained though, as they always handle the busy moments with calm and a smile.

Great place for a meat and potatoes guy. Sometimes a wait, but that's because it's a popular joint, you can wait at the bar with a beer. Ribs are my favorite.

Well deserves #1 ranking as best in Moorpark. The service is attentive without hovering. They have a wide menu from baby back ribs (sorry, no st louis ribs) to steak, brisket, chicken, fish and salads. They have added gluten-free items and post on the menu that there sauces are GF. We always wind up bringing food home.

Wood Ranch serves the best bbq tri tip and chicken.....as well as tri tip and chicken salads. Their garlic rolls are to die for and the peanut coleslaw is wonderful. Great bar. You can order by phone and pick-up at front door. Super friendly and efficient staff. Love this place! It does get busy during peak hours so.... Plan well!!
