This is the best BBQ in Norman. The service is great and friendly. My family used to think I made good ribs until I brought home some Ray's. We've never had a bad meal here.

Hands down the best BBQ in Oklahoma! I grew up in our family's BBQ restaurant so I'm a bit of a BBQ snob. This is the best I've had. The service is always friendly and everything on the menu is the real deal!

Less than $8 bucks get you a great BBQ sandwich, a side and a drink. Fast, hot and ready in minutes. I eat here all the time.
