I routinely travel through central Oklahoma. If at all possible, I plan to be in Shawnee around lunch time. Van's Pig Stand has great smoked meats and the best sauce in the region. The sides are OK. I avoid any side with "bean" in the name. However, Van's is great where it counts the most: ribs and pulled pork. The seating is comfortable and the staff friendly. I have enjoyed every visit to Van's.
