Friendly Service, So-So Food

We were returning from a visit to Texas and decided to give it a try. Our options were limited in this part of Oklahoma, since we were traveling with our dog, and couldn't leave her in the car on a warm day. Also, I am GF, which further limits things. This place fit the bill. Our server, a very... read more

Been here before. But seems management has changed or something. OK; not sure how to review totally. Food was good; portions adequate......BUT how can you serve ICE COLD barbecue sauce with it? I know they worry about sauce spoiling if left out too long at room temperature but instead of serving it in smaller portions at least at room temperature... More

Stopped since they advertised the best barbecue in OK. Couldn't be more far from the truth. Restrooms were extremely dirty. Food was extremely questionable. Chicken still had feathers on it. Food was disgusting. Everything was soaked in grease. They serve the food in Styrofoam plates, have the audacity to charge like a five-star restaurant for the food. Place was empty.... More

We stayed overnight here in Guthrie and due to road construction we decided to eat at this restaurant. We're glad we did. We usually don't eat a lot so we decided to split a dinner and asked for a 2nd plate. They actually served the meal to us on 2 plates already to go. And what a meal it was.... More

I am from Texas and I just had the ribs and they gave me chopped brisket instead of sliced. It is the worst barbecue that I have ever eaten!! The ribs taste like they were cooked in the slow cooker and the brisket was super sweet. I will definitely not return. However, the service was great.

This place is handy, homey and tasty. They serve big portions at a fair price. We stopped in here late one evening. My wife had a huge rib plate, I had the hot links and brisket. We left here full and happy. I wish we had one of these in Omaha!

I travel every week to some big cities and then also to some smaller towns. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a BBQ paradise. I had the full rack where the meat just fell off the bone. I never use sauce because it covers the actual BBQ flavor. It was WAY, WAY too much for me to eat so... More

Really good food, the waitress (Jordan) was friendly and attentive, and at a great price, no reason to complain here. I had the Engine #9 Smokestack sandwich and it was simply fantastic. I'm not from around and this was an unplanned visit on my way to OKC, but if I find myself on that same route, I will definitely stop... More

I'm not here to tell you where to eat. I'm here for telling you about my own experience. By far...bar none...the worst place I have ever eaten. The service was ok, but the food was so bad. Potatoes tasted like winded cleaner. The so called "Best BBQ" was under cooked. Sweet tea was not sweet. My wife's okra was not... More
