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!

I'll admit, I've been very spoiled when it comes to barbecue. That has brought my expectations to be extremely high. This does not come close to meeting it. The ribs were decent, so was the brisket. The sides were dry and not good. The barbecue sauce was bland and runny. Service was extremely slow and rude.

The staff is very friendly, and helpful. Everything from the sweet tea to the toast was wonderful! I had the pick two: I chose pulled pork and fried catfish. It came with two sides, I picked baked beans and fried okra. The portions are huge!! My husband had the ribs and grilled chicken. We had enough food for 2 meals!... More

We eat BBQ here often and enjoy their ribs, pork and chicken. They are a delightful little find just off Hwy 69.
