To the people saying that the brisket had no flavor and tasted terrible....I seriously have NO idea what you are talking about!?! We went last night for the first time and we both agreed that we have NEVER had brisket that tasted like that in our lives. It was absolutely delicious. The pork was so-so but good. The BBQ sauce was good. The cornbread was amazing and free. The cheesy potatoes werent anything special but they were good. The beans taste like they always do from BBQ places - - nothing special. The macaroni and cheese is the same you get at KFC. Overall we were impressed and are definitely going back for the brisket. Next time I think I will get 2 meats: brisket and brisket.

Pretty sure this is in Des Moines, rather than Altoona.

Just saying.

Great BBQ and great people. Best ribs I have had in Des Moines.

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)! :)

Great ribs. Fall off the bone and very good. Sides are mediocre. The corner it's on is a nice little oasis. Establishment is very small, but I wouldn't want it to move anywhere. I like the staff.
