Close to WWII museum in CBD, Very good pulled pork BBQ on delicious bun or french bread. Reasonably priced and generous quantities. Huge, cheap and very good Bloody Marys...

If you have a taste for BBQ and want to eat with the locals near the convention center this will due. There's nothing special about this place and reminds me of just your average/low scale business. Food was average at best, but priced accordingly.

This is a good place to grab some barbeque in the Warehouse District. The prices are good and is not usually too busy. There is outside seating as well.

Lots of locals watching the Oklahoma vs Oklahoma st. Game made it a comfortable atmosphere since my family is big into football. Food was tasty. Not outstanding by any means but a good stop.

Where do I start? I was in town for the week working at the convention center, and after going to the same place two days in a row with the crew, I thought i would venture up the street, and see what else I could find. One more block up, and across the street I see the sign for Ugly... More

I am always looking for a good hang out close to where I am staying and certainly hit a home run with this place. This place is within two blocks of where I was staying. The food is OK but that was not why I went there. I went there to watch a few ballgames on TV that I could... More

We took a large group (12 people) to the Ugly Dog for a late lunch. There is no hostess and there was no wait staff. You have to go up to the bar to order, but no one will tell you this. You are expected to see the sign. The bartender, who appeared to be the only person in the... More

I only have one complaint about the Ugly Dog......small portions. Other than that, you get real good BBQ at decent prices. The Cole Slaw here is to die for. Homemade and fantastic. Great place close to convention center.

We went to the Ugly Dog Saloon on a Saturday for dinner. The place, unfortunately, was almost empty and this was on a Holiday weekend. We ate outside, and nobody came to clean up the tables. We had to order inside for there was no service outside. The food was ok, for we had the chili dogs and the mac... More
