The best ribs I've had in a long while.. the meat is so flavorful that you don't need extra barbecue sauce - get the half slab... it's enough to fill you up. The meat comes easily off the bones, not overdone like some places where it falls off the bones. And the beans are awesome, get them, too. Oh yes,... More

We went to eat BBQ ribs at all 3 restaurants. Oklahoma Joe's which is located in a gas station in Kansas City, KS, was the best. The hour we stood in line to order our food was worth the wait! The ribs were tender and very flavorful and the dirty rice was excellent! We ate at Gates Restaurant in Kansas... More

My greeting at the counter was nonexistent. The cash register operator didn't offer a "Hello" or even a "What do you want?" - she just stared at me. It creeped me out a little. She was clueless on a few questions I had on the menu and yelled each of my questions back to the cooks. Believe me, they weren't... More

Had Joes before in KC and loved it, pleasently surprised when we found one in Tulsa, OK area. Had bunt ends which i believe are the best I have ever had. Also a half slab ribs which that were spot on. Loved our sides of spicy cole slaw, baked beans and the sweet potato fries were tremendous. Oklahoma Joes, KC... More

We got the half slab of ribs and they were very good! We also liked the order-at-the-counter method as the money we saved on not having to tip a waitress paid for our kids meals. Great food and will definitely go back!

This is one of my favorite spots for workday lunch, always super fast and definitely the best BBQ I've ever had. Why did it take so long for them to come to Oklahoma? Also used them to cater a large meeting at the office, and they were spectacular. The food even managed to stay hot, and our notoriously picky bunch... More

I've had BBQ from Georgia to Seattle and points between. BBQ is different in all parts of the country an not everyone enjoys the same style. Oklahoma Joe's BBQ is like most of the Midwest. I found it to be lacking in flavor and dry. My wife and I had brisket and pork. The sides were good but not great.... More

The BBQ sauce choices were hot and hotter. We were amazed that there was nothing mild for kids and those of us who don't like hot BBQ sauce. It was very expensive for two to eat. We only went to the restaurant one time, even though it's near our home. I have since ordered take-out meat from them, and I... More

One of the best BBQ places I've ever been. Not quite up to the level of the original but is close. Pricing is a little steep compared to local competitors but it is worth the price difference. Best Okra ever IMO

I'm picky when it comes to BBQ but Oklahoma Joe's has the best BBQ ribs I have ever had. Very delicious and juicy.
