I never know there will be food like this in the middle of nowhere! We moved our daughter down to Texas for her new job and choose Muskogee for our stay over night on the road. We were not expect to find anything special for dinner but oh boy were we surprised! My son spotted this place and on the... More

Eaten here many of times and have always left satisfied! Fried catfish is some of the best around. Great ribs and BBQ beans are well above average. Slice brisket is really good as well! Atmosphere is log cabin/hunting like. Nothing fancy. Service has always been great when dining in or ordering to go. Recommend this place of in the area!

Enjoyed a meal at Runt's with my good friend Suddy. He wanted to impress me with Oklahoma's bar-b-que, so it seems like he ordered about everything on the menu. We had the catfish both fried and blackened - both were good but fried is the way to go! Not too much batter, not greasy, with a nice pepper taste. Being... More

One trip, two visits, it was that good! The pulled pork and burnt ends are of the chart delicious! Then tried the catfish the next night and it was the best I've ever had. The side dishes left a lot to be desired. Go with the slaw that has fresh Apple. Nice touch. The dining rooms are crowded and loud,... More

We came to town & asked around for best place to eat and were told to try Runts. Read reviews and decided to try. First thing I noticed was the food on floor. A large piece of meat that had been stepped on several times, and yet the staff strategically missed it as they walked by. By our table, cracker... More

Oh my, the food was OUTSTANDING. Sister picked up the food and we enjoyed it outdoors and the food was amazing!!! I would definitely go there again, and again, and again.

The parking lot was pretty full when we arrived. Several game wardens were waiting for large tables and they told me it was worth waiting for. Actually, our wait was less than 5 minutes. Our server was delightful. My partner had the 3-meat dinner: ribs, catfish and chopped brisket. Catfish was delicious, the chopped brisket had a good flavor, but... More

The meal was delicious and the staff was very helpful. It was very reasonably priced. Would definitely eat here again if traveling through Muskogee!

Would not darken the doors at runts again! No taste, bad service and dirty floor! I don't think the dishwasher looks at his/her plates as mine had dried food from something I did not order! Will not go back!

Just passing thru this town on a business cross country trip. Stopped in and was pleasantly suprised. Food was great. We had ribs, BBQ chicken breast and salads. Huge portions and everything tasted wonderful. 4 people ate for $52 which is unreal! Servers were all very friendly. Busy local place. Highly recommend a stop at this hidden gem!
