Driving back to the great State of Texas, I had a hankering for BBQ. I should've known better then to trust those Oklahoma reviews when it comes to BBQ. After reading trip advisor, I would've thought Ray's BBQ would rival the best of Texas, but...More

Average sliced brisket sandwich at best. They hand you sandwich with just bun and meat. Have to ask for onions or extras. Not much flavor.

Some of the best ribs I have ever had. Beans have a little mustard or hot sauce in them and are addictive. Cole slaw was good too! Not enough time on this trip to eat here twice!

This is the best BBQ I've ever had. The cuts were cooked perfectly. They were moist but not greasy and melted in your mouth. Their sides are also great and I highly recommend their fries and mac and cheese! Quick service and pleasant employees
