Earls offers very good BBQ meats and their sides seem to be better than most other BBQ places around. To me, without good side dishes and sauce choices, BBQ meal is not complete.

Had the beef brisket and ribs with baked beans and coleslaw. Overall experience was very good, the ribs are too big IMO. I wondered if it was off of a senior pig. Flavor was great, though and the baked beans were excellent. The beef brisket says sliced or chopped, we ordered chopped but both came basically chopped but they claim... More

We've eaten here off and on for the past three years and tonight's rib dinner was the end. I've never had ribs that needed salt and were this tough. Even the deviled eggs needed salt. How do you screw up a deviled egg? This place has really slipped with unreliable quality and tasteless food. But the service was really good.... More

Ordered Take Out - the family pack version of Ribs and Brisket, complete with fried okra and beans. Good smoke ring and flavor. Brisket was too lean... too dry... then a Swan-dive into the sauce helped. Lots of pickles and onion on the side. Good enough and close by.

Probably one of my favorite places to eat in Oklahoma City. The atmosphere is great. The service is wonderful. The ribs are so tender they practically fall off the bone, and the hot links are probably the best I've ever had. I've had barbeque from all over the country, and Earl's is easily some of the best I've ever had.... More

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
