Excellent Bar B Que

Runt's is a local favorite. The Bar- B -Que offerings are smoked on site, and the choices are varied and delicious. Brisket, ribs, chicken, pulled pork, sausages, hot links- they offer prime rib on the weekends. The sides are beyond normal fries and cole slaw. Friied okra, seasoned green beans... read more

Every good BBQ place should be able to serve a decent -if not amazing- brisket, potato salad, cole slaw, and banana pudding... or they should close shop and become a subway franchise or something. Here's what I got at Runt's: Sliced brisket - dry and served cold. BBQ sauce couldn't save it. Potato salad - the potatoes were completely puréed,... More

I found this place here on Trip Advisor when in Muskogee on a business trip. I liked it so much that I ate dinner there 2 nights in a row. First, the Q sauce is very unique, never had anything like it before, I thought it was finger licking delicious & addictive. On the first night, I was torn between... More

Sorry to be so graphic with my title, but this BBQ had to be one of the best meals I've had. We came here based on a recommendation from the Holiday Inn we stayed at. We ordered to go because didn't feel we were dressed good after traveling. However, when we picked up the order, we could tell we were... More

Ok folks, here it is. Pure and simple absolutely THE best Q there is ANYWHERE, PERIOD! Forget Kansas City, Memphis, Nashville, or ANY place you have heard about. This is seriously THE best Q to be found on this planet. The ribs WILL make you cry when they are gone. Pulled pork like anywhere can be a bit dry, but... More

This is a regular stop for us as well as the place we bring family for consistently good food. The prime rib is seasoned perfectly, the Greek catfish is a treat, and the sides are all good. The pulled pork is great, but the chicken fried steak was disappointing. We will definitely keep coming back for the great food and... More

The ribs are the absolute best! The rub on the ribs just enough. You don't need BBQ sauce. Usually you know that if it's done right you don't want to mess it up by adding sauces. The other menu items are not bad either. The menu has a lot to offer. There is not anything really NOT good, just preference.... More
