Woodpile has expanded since my last visit. They have an order counter and open seating. The food is amazing and adequately priced. Their customer service stands out, second only to the food. We’ll be back often!

This is the best BBQ ever. It is so nice to find a place where the food is delicious beyond statement. It is just like the BBQ joints in Kansas City or down South.
