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.

We had lunch at the Bricktown location on a Saturday. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was very good - but not outstanding. Beef brisket was a little too dry for my liking but portions were generous and prices were fair. Nice atmosphere - I wouldn't have any problems with going back again.

Good BBQ in Bricktown. I had the combo platter (ribs & pulled pork) with potato salad and beans for sides. The sides were excellent! The meat seemed to be not warm enough (temperature) for my tastes and that is my main issue with my meal. It could be that BBQ is served different in the mid-west than out east where... More
