This is a no frills place but the food is terrific. We also get the ribs for 2, it's around twenty dollars, and comes with 4 sides and texas toast. Some of the best ribs we have ever eaten. You order at the counter and they bring your food to you, not much personality with any of the workers but... More

I have visited twice. Both times the meat has been very good. My favorite thing is their potato casserole side. I can't remember exactly what they call it, but it has cheese and bacon in it and it is wonderful. You can't beat the friendly service here. Though they don't have servers, they roam the dining room and will refill... More

They know BBQ. This is some great food. Started out with a small open trailer, went to a closed-in concession trailer, then to an old 'Dairy Queen' building, now to their new place. Give this a try. You'll go back.

Every since they have opened their new building the food is always cold and I have waited in the DRIVE-THRU for over 30 mins. Food is not near as good anymore either.

I love their mild sauce and DO NOT leave without trying the onion rings. If you are a Sooner fan, this is a MUST for you!

Our B&B host highly recommended this local favorite that specializes in Oklahoma BBQ items. What we had were slightly dry ribs. Even the hot sauce didn't approach what we would call HOT! And the items were served on styrofoam that was a big turnoff. It didn't make the food taste great nor was it environmentally friendly at all.
