Dining Guide

Billy’s Oak Acres Bar-B-Q

The barbecue menu is as blue collar as  owner Billy Woodrich’s clothing. Several meat options including brisket, ribs, sausage, pulled pork and turkey are available as a sandwich, plate, or combo plate (ribs were once excluded as a combo option, but no longer). The sides of potato salad, slaw, pinto beans, green beans, and pea salad don’t get fancy either, but they’re almost all great. Minus the canned green beans, the sides are made in house. Woodrich chops whole heads of cabbage and boils red skin potatoes. While the classic slaw has a nice crunch, I prefer the potato salad and simple pinto beans. And the pea salad is a pretty good way to get your greens.

    Good to see you made it there. Couple of typos: deisel, and “some if his lawyer”.

    • Daniel Vaughn

      Fixed. Thanks.

  • Karen Freed Breaux

    Great food and Billy is a great person. Support your locals!!!

  • Made the trip out today for lunch. The banana pudding is amazing! Fatty Brisket was good and rendered nicely but not much seasoning. Could of used some more salt to bring out the brisket flavor. The pulled pork was awesome! Great over all experience!

  • Trey Holcomb

    Best brisket and ribs I’ve ever had. And I’ve had quite a bit!

  • Tom and Angie George

    We had lunch Saturday, It was the best, Unbeliveably great. The staff was friendly and cordial. You will not regret it. We will go again.

    Hello, I was going to make your banana pudding recipe that was recently in the 360 West Magazine.
    Do I really add 1/2 cup cornstarch to the cookie recipe?
    It seemed like a lot. Thank you for answering my question.
    Sincerely, Pam

  • That’s some great looking food. Feeling hungry 😀

  • GG Higgs

    Food was great, my menu was about totally torn in half, spring for some new menu’s Billy.

  • Cory Johnson

    Was there for lunch today and not impressed. Best thing I had was potato salad. My wife and I between us had brisket, turkey and sausage. The brisket was bland and boring. Turkey was just like Daniel said in his article – deli turkey. Sausage may be commercial, but it was actually the highlight of the meats for me.

  • Thank you for your recent sponsorship of the Circle J High School welding competition, the students of Detroit Ag. Mechanics had a great time and learned a lot from this experience. Thanks again!
