“Darn good BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2011 via mobile

I was in Battle Creek a few days ago, and tried this place. We ordered a half slab dinner with potatoe salad and macaroni and cheese, and a pulled pork dinner with fries and baked beans. Everything was delicious and completely homemade. The baked beans and mac and cheese were my favorite sides! II would definitely recommend this place for some awesome bbq.
* There is not seating inside, but there is a picnic table in front of the building.

“Easy to see why it's won the Taste of Battle Creek consecutively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

I have been to OT's multiple times, and have never had a bad meal. Their BBQ sauce is the best I have ever had, and it is easy for me to see why they have won the taste of Battle Creek consecutively. Their BBQ chicken is always tender, flavorful, and their fries make an awesome side dish, as does their mac n cheese. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody!

“great bbq”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2010

Best in the area, eat here often, fond of the rib tips with some downhome style greens mac n cheese and cornbread...they make their own sauce from scratch, a consistent award winner, mmmmm....rarely have i gotten anything that was not top-notch at O<T's...friendly fast service too. (note that it is take-out only)...

“Best Pulled Pork sandwiches EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2010

Without a doubt the best pulled pork I've ever had. And I've have it at a lot of places. His sauce is incredible. Its a thin, reddish colored sauce that is soooo tangy and good. I've had his ribs at ribfest in Kalamazoo, and they are great. Service is fast at the counter. I usually wait less than 5 minutes for my meal.

HIs Battle Creek place is all take-out, so plan ahead.
