It's closed, don't waste your time. It wasn't very good even when it was open, always seemed to be a little over cooked to us.

Not enough room in town for two similar bbq places and Head Country won out. The owner was the chief cook for Head Country and started his own place. Food was good but not enough patrons finally did him in.

Was good bar-b-que but has since been closed. It was probably 2nd to Head Country Bar-b-que where the owner formerly worked. Head Country is tops!

This was a great Barbeque restaurant but Mr. Dugan retired in the spring of 2013 and sadly Dougan's BBQ is no longer in business. There is still great BBQ in Ponca City at both Head Country and the Blue Moon Restaurants.

Been to Dougan's three times, always great. It was way better than Head Country in quality meat/taste, I'm sad to see it go. Ponca City is in need of great talent in the food industry and they just lost another one.

Tastiest most consistent BBQ I've ever ate and I've ate my weight in BBQ many times over, in many towns and cities. I was blessed to eat at Dougan's since it opened in the 1990s all the way through 2013. My wife (which came later and 2 sons which followed after that) also loved the excellence that is Dougan's BBQ.... More

Dougans closed this past Saturday March 16, 2013. paul retired ad has closed the restaurant for good which is a shame, but after so long a time, one understands the reasons for getting out. The food was very good, the building needed a great many improvements (but Paul didn't own the building). Dougans has been an institution in Ponca City... More

Smells good from the outside. Tastes better on the inside! Fall off the bone, tender, juicy ribs. YUMMY! Best ribs in Ponca City!

the restaurant is very old and in poor condition. The carpeting is filthy and the place generally rundown. The barbecue is OK. the pork was tender and the sauce flavorful. the brisket was tough and nothing special. There are a lot of much better places for BBQ in Oklahoma
