I really like BBQ, I visited 8 of the food networks top ten BBQ joints in 2009. So my palette is tested. I try to visit someplace new in small towns whenever I can. This little place is a good mix of Texas style rubs with a Kansas City style sauce. My favorites together in one place! I've added it... More

Three of us ate at Runts, choosing sliced brisket, chopped brisket and catfish. The brisket was lean and the catfish was golden and crispy. All were tasty and so was the onion ring appetizer, which was of the stringy, crispy variety. The potato salad and baked bean sides were good, but maybe could have had a little more zing for...

My husband and I visit Runt's at least once a week. My favorite is the fried catfish, with the sliced brisket coming a close second. The service is friendly and excellent, the food is served in a timely manner, especially considering how fresh it is. Make sure to get the baked beans and cole slaw. They are awesome!

Good good, waitress took order. Brought food, I ordered all you can eat plate. I finished plate before she came back. When she did finally come back she asked if we were ready to go. Ordered more catfish and smoked bologna. Brought bologna, then brought catfish and ticket. Never asked if needed refill on drinks. Felt like she was just... More

We don't visit here often since it's on the otherside of town, but everytime we do I wonder why we don't come more often. They have the best BBQ beans I've ever tasted! The food is excellent and I especially love their catfish.

Runts Bar B-Q tried a Bar B Q restaurant in Tulsa and failed. I was in Muskogee earlier this week on business, and was hungry. The first place I saw as I turned off Highway 69 toward downtown Muskogee was Runts. I remembered the Tulsa location, had never tried it then, and thought maybe it was too much competition or...

Everything is really great. I personally like the ribs and cole slaw and onion rings. Mushrooms are also wonderful. Try their specialty dressing, BBQ ranch.

Cute place to stop for BBQ. Quite and easy to visit with friends. They are not open on Sunday. No bar. I like special needs people and have worked with them, but there is special needs worker there who is a bit too friendly. I don't like to be touched and kissed! without permission. He is very sweet, but should... More
