Still a GREAT Choice for Bar-B-Q

I'm originally from Muskogee OK, and I frequented Cowboys Bar-B-Q as a teenager some 25 or so years ago! To be honest, I was hesitant to go back, because I didn't want to change my memories of good times and really good BBQ, but on this trip I finally broke down and took my family, and I'm so glad... read more

I have eaten at cowboys for years. It is good BBQ, no question about that. What I cannot figure out is why the BBQ is not hot when you get it. Everytime I go in to eat, our BBQ is not hot. It is a bit pricy vs. other BBQ places in the neighborhood.

We love this place! Great to take family to. Food is excellent, service is great and location is easy to get to. Kind of expensive but well worth it!

I went on a Saturday when there is all you can eat ribs. The ribs are very good. The amount of meat on the ribs was very good. Also they kept my plate full and the eaten ribs cleaned off the table. If you like it spicy the hot is very good.

They served prime rib, potato,salad, grilled green beans, the food was hot, prime rib was out of this world!!... More

The food is good. The service is decent. The one complaint was they ran out of ribs once...on a day with very few people there. I went to Mahylon's and never looked back.

Best BBQ in town! I have lived in Muskogee all my life and always eaten at cowboys. Family owned, clean, very good service! I also love the environment of cowboys, and they cook everything from scratch, nothing ordered in. They also have new southwest chicken wraps on the menu that are awesome!! If you want great BBQ.... Eat at Cowboys!

I used to live in Muskogee and always enjoyed having a great bar-b-que meal at Cowboy's, but that was almost thirty years ago. Traveling back there today to reminisce and find where I used to live and work, there it was...Cowboy's B-B-Q! We ate lunch there and it was just as I remembered it. The brisket sandwich with fries was... More
