Woodpeckers is a cozy locally owned BBQ joint. Tucked away in the back roads west of St. Augustine, it is home to an award-winning Datil sauce and a plethora of lunch options. This restaurant specializes in southern low-and-slow barbeque.
With three pit masters set up, cooks prepare turkey, pork, chicken, brisket, sausage, and ribs daily. Every dish is also served with their signature Datil sauce. Other foods that have some spice to them are the baked beans, cornbread/corn, and slaw.
Pecker Plates are presented with two sides and Texas toast, while sandwiches come with only one side and toast. There is an assortment of sides: green beans, baked potato, mac and cheese, collard greens, and coleslaw.
Dine inside or use the large picnic tables set up outside as well. Customers can do take-out by phone or at the order window. This business caters events and parties, too.
It is open every day from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. except on Mondays. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
