The Wood Barbeque Saucing Competition


Visitors and residents of Inglewood have always had their choice of the best barbeque in Southern California.

Staples such as Woodys and Phillips are mainstays that have attracted patrons from afar and near.

Kenny’s Q has also been receiving rave reviews, but there is a new kid on the block and so far The Wood has been knocking the socks off the competition.

The same businessman that owns the Savoy on La Brea, the top club and entertainment location in Inglewood owns the Wood.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Savoy to alter course. Instead of hoping to wait out the crisis, the owner decided to try his hand in the barbeque business.

Curbside service, and Mobil delivery services such as Doordash and Uber Eats have created a new economic stream for eateries and The Wood has cashed in.

However The Wood is not getting it done with gimmicks and cute promotions, although it has been savvy in marketing the restaurant.

The best sales pitch The Wood has is the food.

While the barbecue spare ribs can match the competition, the game changer is the succulent mouth watering brisket.

The bake beans are tangy and just sweet enough and the deserts offered are from vendors who are trying to get their foot in the door, essentially promoting entrepreneurship.

Located on 129 N Market St. (310) 466-9741, The Wood may be just was Inglewood desired in barbeque.
