Thanksgiving Plate

We actually had the Thanksgiving for 6-8 and OH IT WAS EXCELLENT! the smoked turkey was fantastic, the various sides excellent, and there was indeed PLENTY. And it seemed like the pecan pie was made with smoked pecans ... YUM! We are regulars at this Hardwood and this meal totally lived up to their high standards.

Beef Brisket Sandwich

Delicious brisket sandwich made with love, get the combo platter, enough to feed a family. Our son just got out of UCSF during a long stay at the hospital, this place really satisfied his BBQ cravings, and he consumed everything. The ribs are tender & fall-off-the-bone tasty, cooked to perfection. Restaurant is spacious in an ideal location. Friendly and attentive staff, ample street parking. Great space for parties. 'Til we MEAT again - cheers!

The spouse devoured these! Very tasty! I would have loved some bits of meat be included, especially to add a little bit of smoky flavor. But this was an overall hit.

Pork Rib Tips

These were delicious and my spouse's favorite. I would have liked a bit more caramelization on them, but they were meaty and yummy.

Smoked Pork Spare Ribs

Flavorful, juicy, and well spiced smoked pork spare ribs that fell off the bone with one bite! Fantastic with a side of Mac, coleslaw, and a cold glass of beer. You want professionally done and thought out BBQ in the Bay, you go here!

Corn Bread Muffin

Loved these muffins! Appreciated the addition of corn! These were delicious, end of story.

Potato Salad

I loved the texture-the mix of small chunks and a creamy almost mashed potato type thing. BUT, the dill in it obliterates everything else, flavor wise. I recommend stopping its use completely! My spouse disliked it too

Smoked Pork Spare Ribs

The ribs were full of Smokey flavor and deliciously moist. Tender as can be, but not falling off the bone. Frankly, I mention this only because I think it's best when rib meat DOES NOT fall off the bone. I think BBQ is best when it still has a speck of life to it, and falling off the bone seems to me to be a tad overcooked. These were terrific exactly as they were. I did not try the sauces, as the best stood on its own.

The "Smoke Buddy"

The BBQ here is great! I always order the Smoke Buddy for the variety and value of the order. The ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and brisket were tasty and moist every time I've ordered. The BBQ sauce just enhances the meat even more; although, the sauce isn't needed. I didn't like the macaroni salad, potato salad, and coleslaw very much. I wish the macaroni and potato salads were creamier and less tangy. I've only done takeout and Bentocart, so I think it would be even better right out of the kitchen.
