    The portion of pulled pork is a bit small, but the sauce (which is outstanding) will leave you wanting more. Don't miss the free corn bread!

    In 2009, Woody's was voted "Best of the Best Barbeque Restaurants in America." It is also home to the best (free) cornbread in Iowa. Just add a little honey and it tastes even better!

    With a few blocks off campus with your friends to sample a wide array of smoked Iowa meats: ham, brisket, pork and chicken, to name a few.

    The fresh corn bread is a great addition to any of the great options at Woody's. And best of all is it's free (and you can help your self to as much as you want)! :)

    I sitting outside facing south and the neighbor dogs are out beware where you look... The black dog might be giving it to the boxer.
