HONEY, WE SHRUNK THE FOOD! – THE GROVE next to shopping stores. (Fairfax avenue off of).
Cinchy! Cinchy! I was there a year ago and I could SEE the food, the servings were huge.
A year later I go (which is today) and I actually went back to the restaurant and asked for some type of sauce for the burgers (THEY WON'T PUT MUSTARD, MAYO ON THE BUN NOR ASK U WHAT SAUCE U WOULD LIKE. U JUST DON"T GET ANY AND THEY T E L L U T H A T!
I went back to ask for another bunch of brocolli; and the man at the front entrance said NO. (HOW CHEAP ... SO CHEAP he squeaked when he walked ..,. SCROUGES' BROTHER PERHAPS ?
When I ordered and asked a questionn, my waiter DID NOT WANT TO stand there and explain the menu to me. He got perturbed and said he'll come back, I said 'no listen ,.. I get this from the people in public ... but inside this restaurant where I am a paying customer, I don't need to hear your frustration. So I got up and got another table with another waiter. My only error was that when I got up, I SHOULD HAVE KEPT WALKING OUT OF THE FRONT DOOR. WHEN YOU ARE IN YOUR LATE FORTIES' F O R G E T IT ... U WON'T FEEL WELCOME. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GO NEXT DOOR TO MAGIANNO'S ITALIAN RESTAURANT. THEY TREAT U LIKE FAMILY. THERE is NO family here ... there are 'just robots disguised at humans who DON'T and WON'T EXTEND THEMSELVES. BYE!
Such a bogus review...nice commercial at the end there for the other restaurant...If that place was so good, why didn't you go there in the first place. I hate bogus reviews!
very good food, service and atmosphere. – The food is really good. A bit pricey for what you get ($20 for baby back ribs and coleslaw), but tasty and a nice atmosphere.
Plus, the service was excellent. Our server was Vanessa and she was uniquely good at her job, enthusiastic and great food and wine recommendations. I walked out having loved eating there---service makes all the difference.
Best Pulled Pork in LA – I'm never sure why anyone insists they know what "authentic" BBQ is, but let me do that right now anyway! I just went to this place for the first time and have to say that I have not had better pulled pork since I lived in Winston-Salem, NC. The smoke is just right and the Carolina sauce and slaw are true to the original versions in Lexington. The pork is different -- and better! -- in that it's not chopped here, but it's actually pulled. My friend ordered the pulled pork sliders and I was doubtful, but I had one of them and then ordered my own sandwich. Just real tasty stuff here. I also tasted the tri tip and it's next on my list when I come back here. Service was great too.
Not all that great – Eh, it was okay. I wasnt that impressed. I wouldn't mind going here again, but i wouldn't go out of my way to visit.
Commercialized, But Reliable – If Cheesecake factory opened a BBQ joint, this is pretty much what you’d expect it to be like. Wood Ranch is the chain restaurant’s answer to BBQ, and it’s definitely not the type of BBQ spot that you’d see on the show “Dinners, Drive-Ins, and Dives”. Knowing what to expect and not comparing it to truly authentic Southern BBQ, you’ll find that Wood Ranch can be quite enjoyable. They have all sorts of BBQ like Tri Tip, Baby Back Ribs, and Chicken. They even have salads, burgers and sandwiches all featuring their BBQ as well.
Great chicken! – my boyfriend and I always get the same dish, BBQ chicken with a side of broc an something else, house salad with balsamic, perfect for 2. sooo good and the staff is awesome
Yum – I love eating here at Wood Ranch... The garlic bread is the best...
Great food and service – I found the service was exceptional on my first visit; the food I'd consistenlty a cut above.

Bread is good but steak is awesome. – Went to Wood Ranch in Northridge for the hot bread and end the night with happy juicy steak. Steak salad looks good and confirmed by my finicky daugther.
