This BBQ joint is one of my favorites. It is very cozy. The BBQ is YUMMY! 1/2 Sweet 1/2 unsweet Tea is perfect! The staff are extremely welcoming, efficient, and friendly. Earl's usually has 85% male customers with a few women. Panera bread is next door, which probably attracts most of the women eating lunch. There are TVs in Earls... More

I'm sure Earls has good barbecue. I don't know because every time I go to the BBQ restaurant I get the Cheddar Burger. Its pretty awesome. Huge patty with melted cheddar, red onion, lettuce and tomato. The basket comes with curly fries. Earls is celebrating its anniversary with special pricing and I had these three times in one week.

We discovered Earl's Rib Palace about six months ago while visiting relatives in Oklahoma City, We were in Oklahoma City last weekend and made a return visit to Earl's Rib Palace. The barbecue meats seemed to be perfectly cooked and had great flavor. They were also very tender. The side dishes we had, such as baked beans and french fries,... More

Board outside restaurant says that a certain item is on special for x price... menu inside has exact item for the same price. What kind of special is that? Anyway, the food ( brisket sandwich, hot link, ribs, okra) were pretty average. Okra looked and tasted like it had been cooked a couple of hours earlier and then heated up... More

When Earl died, he was traveling as the personal chef of Elvis Presley - The King of Rock and Roll. Earl took great pride in the fact that Elvis gained 50 lbs while Earl was his private chef. In other words, Earl created "Fat Elvis." The barbecue is good. We had the ribs. And the wings. And the deviled eggs.... More

Love Earl's! They have some of the best BBQ in okc. Their ribs are unbeatable. Perfect texture and super tasty. Big Earl sandwich is also very good. It is basically 2 meats on a sandwich with purple onion. I recommend sliced brisket and hot links. They also have a great selection of sides. We are always happy with our dining... More

I usually go to the location on N Western. The brisket, hot links and turkey are all great and the fried okra and loaded potato are good sides. My favorite part is the mild BBQ sauce. Really good stuff.

This is a very comfortable place and very friendly. Everyone has an opinion on what makes great ribs and I'm certainly not an expert, but I love theirs. If you like ribs with sauce, they're great. They offer different levels of spicy and I like to mix them to get just what I want. If you have room, try the... More
