I love a really good fat steak, salad and potatoes. They are very good at Loves. My husband gets the Fried Fish. Our work crew eats there about 5 times a week. Good food. Nice people. Great workers.

Nothing was good. The chicken fried bacon was flavorless, the brisket tasted reheated, the pulled pork was mediocre, the German sausage was okay, the fried okra tasted like it was frozen or canned before frying and the steamed vegetables tasted frozen. The bill $40. The service was sweet and friendly. Preceed with care.

My favorite place to eat in the area. Great ribeye steaks. There are a lot of sides and the kids love the deep fried bacon. It is awesome. They also make their own sausage. Great stuff.

I was on a business trip to Texas. This place was recommended to me by the customer. Judging by the outside only, I would not have stopped at this place. But I am glad I did. Its obviously a home grown family owned restaurant. And they know their southern cooking!. I have been their twice now and so far I... More

If you are hungry for some great BBQ, this is your place. Conveniently located on Hwy 287, this is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner. Be sure and try the cobbler...it is excellent!

You can not find a better tasting rib eye in southern Oklahoma or north Texas than one cooked to perfection at Loves.

Sorry gang but I just cannot give it 5 stars like so many others and stay consistent with my scoring of reviews. Loves Texas Style BBQ is definately the best option for many miles around and it is definatly good home cooking instead of being reheated food like many of the chains. There were really two factors that resulted in... More

I've eaten the BBQ here before and it was good -- but a bit on the fatty-side. However, this last time I ordered the trout and catfish and was enthralled! Truly, this was one of the best tasting fish plates I've had in a LONG time -- not greasy, muddy, overly breaded, etc. Just delicious. Just wish the tables were... More

Stopped for lunch on our way through town. We had the smoked brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. Both were very good. We will definitely eat here again.

I've eaten at Love's twice in the last three weeks. The ribeye steak I ate was cooked exactly as I asked for and the sides of beans and french fries were good tasting but moderate in quantity. The second time we ate here, I had the shrimp and catfish with beans and french fries. Again the sides were moderate quantities.... More
