Tempted to give it five stars!

Tempted to give five stars because it's so nice to have a great road side stop while driving through Oklahoma, but seems weird to give bbq five stars. Anyway, as barbecue goes, this is good stuff, and both the sides and the service are an extra added perk. We drive to Missouri every summer, and... read more

My 2 favorites at Runts....fried Catfish and pulled pork! Consistently delicious! The homemade Tartar sauce for the catfish is perfect. I usually order a salad as one of my sides and I enjoy their homemade blue cheese or ranch dressing. The owners are actively involved in their business ensuring you'll have a positive experience. Love the wait staff!

I was brought here by my colleague who swore it as the best BBQ. It was OK, I had a combo of ribs, pulled pork and chopped brisket. The home made hot BBQ sauce made it for me. The dessert was a factory coconut meringue. My friends had the peach cobbler with ice cream which looked better. I was good.

We were a little skeptical at first seeing the condition of the restaurant but the staff seemed friendly and not put out that we were there so late. That was very appreciated!!!our waitress was friendly and all employees... More

We came for supper, and I had a chopped brisket sandwich with baked beans, and my husband had a sliced brisket sandwich with brown (pinto) beans. The sandwiches were good, but my husband thought the sauces were so-so. He mixed the hot and mild together, and I had the sweet. The men's restroom wasn't very clean, but they had been... More

Runts was a very pleasant find. Our waitress was a great help by instructing the two of us not to get the large version of the fried pickles and onions as they were enough to find 4 or more people. The smaller size was huge and almost left us with no room for the entree. We each chose the 2... More

We found the place looking for another. And it was a very good choice to stop at. The fried pickles was the cat's mow. The bar b q was so tender. Really looking forward to going there again. The portions was big and the prices just right. Servers was pleasant .

the brisket was good, but none of the sauces was just right. Combining all 3 was very good. Banana pudding was very good.
