Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill Now Open in Hazard Center

Earlier this week I took the little mister out for his first mommy son date and new restaurant review. We went to the recently opened Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill in Hazard Center/ Mission Valley. The restaurant originates in the LA area and opened their first San Diego location in May. 

I ordered the BBQ chicken potato skins and a coke right away. I haven’t had a coke in a year! (It’s crazy all the things preggos aren’t supposed to have). The potato skins were absolutely delicious. The skins were perfectly crispy and topped with chunks of Wood Ranch BBQ chicken, cheese, red onion and parsley. These are a must try friends. 

Wood Ranch BBQ offers a pretty good size menu filled with appetizers, salads and their specialty: BBQ. I ordered the tri tip and brisket with a side of Mac n Cheese. My family makes an awesome tri tip which has always been my favorite BBQ but we do it with a dry rub. Wood Ranch serves theirs covered in BBQ sauce. It was good but my favorite was the brisket. It was thin, sliced, dry rubbed and smoked. Yum!!  


The backside of Wood Ranch overlooks the San Diego trolley. This place makes for an awesome lunch spot for the locals. 


And for dessert I tried the Oreo blast. This tasty creation is vanilla ice cream balls rolled into Oreo crumbs on top of a thick chocolate and caramel sauce. Such a fun dessert to share with friends. 

Fun tip – this place has a full bar and lots of seating. It’s a great spot for a group to enjoy a tasty meal of BBQ. 

I received a meal for media consideration. All opinions are my own. 


I love sharing about family, food and fun in and around San Diego! Enjoy, Bri
