The food at Earl's is consistently excellent. The menu has all the basic items such as pulled pork, turkey, chicken, brisket and ribs. The pulled pork was delicious and tender. Side items of baked potato, potato salad, green beans, corn on the cob, fried okra, and deviled eggs to name a few. The blackberry cobbler and peach cobbler is very... More

The ribs were meaty and juicy, but the rub was virtually tasteless. Nevertheless, spiced up with the available BBQ sauce they were a good meal. The accompanying baked beans were outstanding.

The place smells awesome! But how can a place smell so yummy and their BBQ not taste at all like smoke? BBQ sauce is marginal at best. Baked beans are soupy and have some odd spice in them. Potato salad is mayonnaise based, not mustard based. We won't willingly eat here again. The fried okra wasn't bad. Service was friendly.

During our stay in Oklahoma, we visited Earl's three times. Very reasonable prices, portion size was large. Food was hot and tasty. During our visits, we had the following: pulled pork, stuffed oversize baked potato, potato salad, coleslaw, fried okra, ribs and beans. SO finished his plate but then finished off mine. I would recommend this award-winning restaurant for everyone.... More

One of the best BBQ places in OKC. Love their pulled pork. They have great meats and great sides. Just a good solid BBQ restaurant.

If you must dine on the swine, I guess you could do worse, but not much better, than Earls. The smell will drag you in one nostril at a time, and before you know it, your bib is smeared with smoky barbecue sauce and you're burping. Well, you can start that diet tomorrow, after you polish off your take-home leftovers.

Wonderful flavor BBQ but a little skimpy on portions. I love the service and the great atmosphere. We eat here when we want BBQ.
