Now Open: Woodstock BBQ in Lakewood

Last month we offered the first public glimpse of Woodstock BBQ (13362 Madison Ave., 216-226-8828), a Lakewood smoked-meat restaurant a couple years in the making. After such a lengthy and extensive build-out process, owner Robert Togliatti said that he wouldn't open the doors until he had every detail ironed out.

Apparently, that occurred this past weekend. After a few days of a "soft opening" period, Woodstock BBQ opened to the public this Monday.

On the opening day menu, which changes daily, were starters like BBQ loaded fries, BBQ loaded nachos, dry-rubbed and smoked chicken wings, and rib tips.

Smoked meat sandwiches and platters were built around pulled pork, smoked pork, beef brisket and ribs.

Sides range from corn bread and baked beans to broccoli salad and mac and cheese.

Woodstock opens today at 3 p.m. in case you're wondering.
