Its just typical oklahoma barbeque which isn't saying much and the bbq sauce is sickening sweet. The restaurant was very dirty, grimey and dusty but also the kitchen, which is visible from the dining area, is filthy and the kitchen help picked his nose in...More

My hubby and I always enjoy lunch at Fish's Barbeque. Pulled pork, chicken, and beef brisket are some of our favorites. Friendly service, makes us feel at home. Pretty crowded at times -- like a best-kept secret but the word is getting OUT!

I’ve been wanting to try this place for a while now. Don’t be confused when you find it. It’s a metal building that sets off the road. I’ve lived in Texas, KC and Memphis. This is Oklahoma BBQ at its finest. Despite your first impression...More

We were told this was some of the best barbecue around so we took a chance. It is very hard to find. We drove by the place twice. It is almost hidden down a hill in an old metal building that looks closed. The road...More

You have to look for this place or you could miss it. It is well worth the effort. The Bar B Q melts in your mouth and the servers are always very friendly. Good value - a lot of food for a reasonable price
