Really good BBQ. Best in Norman IMO. Good ribs, really good Mac n cheese and okra too. It we the feel of a hole in the wall, but is still clean. Highly recommend if you are looking for good Oklahoma BBQ while in town.

The ribs are so fall of the bone tender that it is ridiculous! The okra is not too heavily breaded and yummy. My husband swears by their brisket. So good you don't need sauce but if you must, they have a great variety of mild and hot. This is a family run business and you feel like you are invited... More

You always hear people say that something is great or very good, but this place blew me away with simple bar b q made fresh with no funny business. No corporate crud, just good food. Good portions, decent price, location not off the old feeder road, but you can find it. Parking a little tight, atmosphere good. Nothing hear is... More

Daryl Day's motto is " you don't need teeth to eat our meat". We've been ordering here (take out) regularly since he opened, and have never been disappointed. Get the smokehouse beans as one of your sides, you won't be disappointed. Friendly service, clean dining room.

In a highly competitive business where most customers have a particular favorite way a being prepared this will not disappoint. The flavor of everything we tried was very good. The ribs are the best I've had around and recommend evey BBQ connoisseur to give it a try.
