Lake Wales


Perfection takes time. The secret… patience. At Woody’s BBQ in Lake Wales, Florida, we take the art of BBQ quite seriously. That’s why every day for nearly four decades, we’ve been slow-cooking our BBQ for hours on end to deliver that signature fall-off-the-bone tenderness and melt-in-your-mouth smoky flavor to every patron, every time. Rather than cut corners, we regularly slice into perfectly prepared slabs of ribs, beef brisket, BBQ chicken, grilled prime rib, smoked pork and more, all featuring our iconic smoke ring with just the right amount of crispy charred bark.

The “Woody” in Woody’s Bar-B-Q is co-founder Woody Mills who – along with his partner, Yolanda Mills-Mawman – took a dog-eared collection of his mother’s recipes that grew from one BBQ restaurant in Lake Wales, Florida to a thriving network of locations throughout the Sunshine State and beyond – each with its own special hometown atmosphere. We invite you to pull up a chair and enjoy our BBQ service founded in Southern Hospitality paired with a menu showcasing comfort food recipes that have stood the test of time in Lake Wales, Florida.


Found near the very center of the Florida peninsula, Lake Wales offers a glimpse of Old Florida and a deep dive into the Florida of today and tomorrow. In Lake Wales, tower bells ring from the Historic Bok Sanctuary – a collection of gardens and frequent site of outdoor concerts. The Lake Wales History Museum stands as a testament to our community’s vibrant heritage, bridging past and present through the stories and artifacts that have shaped Lake Wales, Florida. Murals enliven the historic downtown, designed by the firm of famed city planner Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. Also, don’t miss the Lake Wales Art Center. The church, with its cupolas and bell towers, dates to 1927. Lake Wales: Not Out of the Way, Just Out of the Ordinary.
