Oakland | smokin woods bbq

Smokin’ Woods has 4 1/2 stars on Yelp. I am sorry but I do not get the hype. It was not bad but it was not all that great. Mr Sweetie and I both ordered the dinner combo which came with two meats, two sides and bread. We both had the pork ribs and brisket. They were out of the beef ribs on a Saturday evening at around 7:00 pm.

The good — meats were well-seasoned and tasted good. The bad — the brisket was dry which is a mortal sin when it comes to brisket. The ribs were like burnt ends.

As for the sides I had the bbq beans and collard greens. Mr Sweetie had the potato salad and vegetables. We also got a roll each. The sides were actually tasty and flavorful.

Mr Sweetie also got me a glass of Chardonnay which was nicely chilled and very drinkable.

Bottomline, it was a nice date night on a lovely afternoon in cool space with outdoor seatings where we sat. Service was friendly but very slow.

I was disappointed because I hardly eat meat. When I do, I want it to be worth it. I am not so sure about Smokin Woods BBQ but I wish it all the best.
