Evan's Pig Stand, is an Oklahoma favorite. Good, old fashion BBQ, in a historic Shawnee landmark. The Pig Sandwich with curly frys is my favorite. The ribs and brisket is very good too. You won't want to leave without trying one of Vans homemade deserts....More

I eat here every Month or two. The BBQ ribs are fantastic and I am a big fan of the selection of BBQ sauce. The place smells awesome as well!

This renown restaurant is an icon in Shawnee. The building is original and the inside is full of history, pictures complete with carved initials carved into the walls of the booths. Service is good, food is good. Facility is clean.
