John and Cooks BBQ has been the best BBQ in Lawton for as long as I can remember..for a reason! The brisket is my favorite and I love the potato salad and sweet tea as well!

Best Ribs in area. Consistant quality food and I]ve regularly been a fan since 1972. Do not let the location or decor throw you off stoping in for a Rib Sandwitch.
