I ate lunch here a while ago and was shocked at all the other food they served besides BBQ. I had the steak fingers so I can't rate the BBQ. It should just be called Johnnys restaurant because when I was there I saw no one eating BBQ.

This is probably the most tender brisket I have ever ate. I wish it had a little more smoke but I appreciate the fact that it tasted like unaltered brisket. The jalapeño cheese sausage was great and so was the slaw. Next time I will try the large beef rib.

Great place. The brisket was smoke well with the fat perfectly rendered out. It may have been a bit overdone, tending to fall apart when picked up. But taste wise it was great. Only small nitpick was that the crust was not as peppery as I like, but that's just personal preference. The ribs had a beautiful bark on them and were tender, just slightly dry. Tried the jalapeño sausage and my only comment is, make it hotter. But again that's just my personal preference. Some small nitpicks but overall a great restaurant. Definitely earned a four star rating. I may have just found my new favorite lunch spot!

Haven't been here in while....its really become quite an event center! I'd have to give the atmosphere 5 stars. Now on to the BBQ...had the brisket, ribs, turkey & sausage. Have to give the top dibs to the turkey. Great smoke flavor without being overwhelming. Moist. Delicious. Brisket pretty good but not quite flavorful enough. Moist. Ribs were quite good as well! Sausage had a good flavor but a little too fatty for me. Beans were very good. Potato salad was good too. Cole slaw is vinegar based. Not my fav. Tried both blackberry and peach cobbler with ice cream. Delicious, but I would have liked it a little sweeter. Rest of my family thought they were great. All in all, 3.5 stars.

Moist brisket, but not fatty. Great favor, but not too intense. Adequate sauce, although no sauce needed on brisket. Sauce did not cover up flavor of meat when used. Good sides, but the brisket stole the show. Interesting peach cobbler, and tasted better than it looked (was packaged). Would highly recommend.

Salami and Fritos perfection !

Chicken, sausage and brisket were good. Beef rib was ok. Had a side of potato salad and it was great! Was worth the visit and will return. Very nice people there as well.

Came here 1st time. Warning. If you do not like an over abundance of smoke flavor, this is not your place. With that said, Lean brisket had some chew but pulled easy. I wish top fat had rendered as you paying for fat that's just going to be removed. Sting smoke flavor but surprisingly only 1/4" of smoke ring. Good pepper spice as well. Can eat without BBQ sauce but sauce is good enough to use sparingly. The moist is something else. Melt in mouth goodness. Again some fat should have been more rendered. They cut it at an angle so it pulls apart easy. No need for BBQ sauce but BBQ sauce gives it an extra level of spice. I can still feel it giving me a slow burn in my mouth or is that just all the smoke I inhaled while standing in line. I would say moist 4.5 out 5 and lean a 4 out of 5. I got beef rib but I was too full. These are the brontosaurus ribs and costs $22/lb. will see if worth it. Again this place not cheap @$20/lb. I've had great stuff at $15/lb or less. It's up to you to see if worth extra $5-8/lb better than Kirby's.

Moist brisket okay but dry. Sauce good. 2.75 out 5. Sides were huge dissapointment. Cole slaw was soggy and corn on cob had been steaming for way too long.

3 strikes I'm out. Can't find this one either

This was my original stop for today , but I forgot they were closed on Mondays.
Woodwill Smokers @ Fargo’s Pit BBQ, 2016-09-19 18:05:30
In college station looked for Lews but could not find it. I choose this place because Fargo's is closed on Mondays.
Woodwill Smokers @ Lew’s BBQ, 2016-09-19 18:04:40
Good turkey, ok ribs, and average brisket. I personally thought the ribs and brisket were over done. The sides were above average and the staff were all nice.

Fantastic BBQ. The lean is reasonable with good chew but the moist just melts in your mouth. No sauce needed. Fat rendered very well with good bark and smoke ring even on the moist. Almost zero fat to pull off. I also had the BBQ chicken. It was just as good as my benchmark bill millers. Moist, juicy and flavorful with almost crunchy skin. Gotta try it. For sides I had Mac n cheese which was velveeta thick. Cole slaw was the star though. Super crunchy, sweet black pepper flavor in mayo base. Meal was definitely 5 out 5 stars. If I had to judge lean brisket on own it would be a 4 but I only got 1 slice of that.
Terry r @ Miller’s Smokehouse, 2016-09-14 18:35:27
When I ordered my brisket I was not given a choice between moist and lean, which I feel is standard at most places. My brisket was sliced from the flat and was drier and tougher than I was expecting. Overall I'd say it wasn't bad but definitely not great.

I ate here for lunch often due to lack of options. The sliced beef lunch combo was my usual. The brisket always had good flavor but was hit or miss on tenderness from day to day. There sauce was good and really added to sandwich.
Woodwill Smokers @ Partner’s BBQ, 2016-09-10 02:39:33
Beef ribs were a little tough and brisket was average. Sauce was runnier than what I would prefer but had good flavor. Decent for this small town.
Woodwill Smokers @ The Market, 2016-09-10 02:35:05
Flavorful ribs but so so brisket. I got a sliced beef sandwich once and the beef was tough, plus I felt the sand which could have used a little more beef. They do have some good Turkey Legs.

Found this place by accident after a conference in Dallas. Line was out the door but not long enough to discourage you. It was well worth the wait. Loved the homage to other pitmasters on the walls and impressed when the server knew it was my first time and gave me samples of the brisket. That samples melted in my mouth, was full of flavor and well smoked. I had the TodFather sandwich and was enlightened by it. The slaw that came with the sand which was great as well. Plus I love the name. Looking forward to go again.
Woodwill Smokers @ Cattleack BBQ, 2016-09-10 02:25:13
Visited here after my cousins graduation in Dallas. Glad I didn't drive to North Texas just for this BBQ. Everything was average including the sides. I gave two stars because of decor and mini Smokers on tables holding condiments.
Woodwill Smokers @ Big Daddy’s Roadhouse BBQ, 2016-09-10 02:20:14
A friend of mine took me here a while ago while in Dallas. The ribs were great but brisket was so so. Most interesting moment of the visit was finding out Emmitt Smith had the same Pitt built in his backyard.
Woodwill Smokers @ Baker’s Ribs, 2016-09-10 02:14:15
Stopped here while working in Corpus. Sandwiches and PO Boys were good.
Woodwill Smokers @ Miller’s Bar-B-Q, 2016-09-10 02:06:58
Went here back in 2008 when they mede the Top 50 list. Wasn't sure how they made the list.
Woodwill Smokers @ Willy Ray’s Bar-B-Q and Grill, 2016-09-10 01:45:34
Mediocre at best. I would always go the BBQ salad because it was big. Brisket was tough and sausage seemed boiled. The sauce was so bitter I had to add sugar to make it taste better. Pappas should stick to Cajun and seafood only.
Woodwill Smokers @ Pappas Bar-B-Q, 2016-09-10 01:37:49
The best thing at this place was the rolls. I actually saw a senior citizen couple bring their own jelly just to eat the rolls. Nothing special about BBQ
Woodwill Smokers @ Spring Creek Barbeque, 2016-09-10 01:29:39
Surprisingly good BBQ spot in Houston. Ribs and Brisket were flavorful and tender. Chicken was lacking, needed a different rub. Dessert looked good on counter but did not fulfill my expectation. This place is good but I liked them better when they were in the smaller location.
Woodwill Smokers @ Gatlins BBQ, 2016-09-10 01:27:24
This was a decent place to stop for lunch when I worked in Houston. Loaded baked potatoes were great and the turkey salads were good. Brisket was always tender but lacked flavor.
Woodwill Smokers @ Demeris Bar-B-Q, 2016-09-10 01:21:14
Tonight I had a chopped beef first time in at least twenty years it was awesome smoky moist and lean and then a smoked sausage sandwich perfect also I love Angelo's
