Wildwood’s Scattershot Approach to Barbecue Disappoints

Bubbly conversation and the strains of Lynyrd Skynyrd are bouncing off the high, wood-beamed ceiling, and the basketball playoffs are on televisions above the bar. Fried jalapeños come with a side of ranch dressing, and the potato salad is at least half mayo. Squint and you almost believe you’re in Texas.

Some sides are worthwhile. The “bottle caps"—batter-fried jalapeño slices with ranch dressing—are trashily good.
