The staff was friendly, which makes the rest of this difficult. The wait for a rather simple order was long, the food was below average, the air conditioning was struggling mightily to keep up and the bathroom was filled (and I mean filled) with smoke, presumably from the smoker. There are a number of fast food chain restaurants located at... More

We stopped for the night and this was the closest restaurant so we went in. We ordered the chopped beef sandwiches since we had been in the car all day and weren't all that hungry. The meat was excellent with no big chunks of fat or gristle. We only tried the regular barbecue sauce but it had just enough zing... More

This place has great BBQ! You get a good amount of good food for the price. You order at a window and then find a seat and they bring it out to you. So if you want a more fine dining experience, this is not your stop, but if you want good BBQ at a good price, it is worth... More

Stopped in, easy off the interstate on out way back to Kansas. The waitress was so pleasant. Recommended the Engine #9 sandwich, so we decided to try it and it was delicious lol although a little messy. Seating and parking were good.

Quality and quantity has gone down with new foreign owner who doesn't speak great English and doesn't know good BBQ so drive into OKC for good BBQ.

I first went to this place in 2006 with a large group, at that time the majority was aghast at what we were served. Raw ribs and DRY brisket! Fast forward to 2016. I "won" a $15 gift certificate to this place. I am thinking well, it has been ten years, time to give them another chance? Invited and took... More

We had a sit down dinner and it was not bad. Service was good and the place was clean and comfy. We had the smoked ham and ribs which was very yummy. The brisket was okay...different than I prefer. The slaw and beans were very good as well. The fried pies remind me of the old McDs fried pies! Very... More

I had tried them in the past several times and each time I vowed never to return. I saw on their Facebook page that Bacon Burgers were featured as a special the day before and the photo looks really good. I decided to give them another try because a good burger is almost impossible to get in this town They... More

If there was a way to do no stars. This would be the restaurant for the no star. The food was terrible and the cook messed up toast.
