Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill has a mid-May opening planned for its new restaurant at 7510 Hazard Center Drive, Suite 215 in Mission Valley.

It will be the first San Diego County location for the Westlake Village-based company, which started in 1992 and currently operates 14 full-service restaurants in Southern California.

The new location, in the Hazard Center mixed-use development off Friars Road, will open in the space that formerly housed Randy Jones All American Sports Grill.

A company statement said Wood Ranch serves barbecue items including St. Louis-style ribs, Carolina-style pulled pork and Texas-style brisket, along with burgers, salads and desserts.
