What To Expect

Our low and slow smoked BBQ creates some long lines – but it is worth it! Wait times can be an hour or two during peak times, so be sure to allow yourself plenty of time. It is a good idea to know what you want to order when you get to the head of the line to help expedite your order.

While there is a pick-up window, it is not a traditional drive-thru. First you call in your order, and then you can pick it up. Give us a little lead time because the lines can be a bit long…but that is what you get when you produce legendary local barbecue!

    I went here about a year ago when on a vacation. We stopped here and loved the BBQ. Everyone in our group loved it and thought it was the best barbecue ever. We ended up driving here 2 hours away to just eat here. We again were impressed by the barbecue, sauce, fries, and okra. They also have pulled chicken which is usually rare to find and was very good. The sandwich buns were soft and make getting a sandwich so much better. I definitely recommend coming here if you are around Davis.

    I stopped to pick up meat for supper. It was about 3:30pm & I'm headed to Ardmore area. I was thinking they might have some fresh meats coming off the grill & smokers. I ask for brisket & saugages. I didn't open meat container or look at it. I trusted this place would always sell me the very best. This time it did not it was very dry. Maybe left over from lunch. Edit: If stop again I'll definitely ask if meat is fresh out of the smoker. Plus I'll open to see for myself.

    Best BBQ around. I was a little skeptical cause the menu looked a little limited but I was pleasantly surprised with what I got. The building is a little small for as busy as they can get. Large portions delicious BBQ sauce. The portions are enough for 2 but they want to charge you for sharing a plate AND don't expect free water. I don't drink soda so I had to pay for their branded warm bottled water which is pathetic for a restaurant. Everything about this place says "We're Cheap!". The restroom didn't even have soap so I hope they already had some in the kitchen. Food is good but lots of better places missing lot of basics other provide.

    Dig into a hearty meal of fall-of-the-bone rib cooked to perfection at this restaurant and you will not leave hungry. Mix it up with some brisket, pork tenderloin and several classic sides like fries, coleslaws, mashed potatoes, etc. You order your food before finding your table but you don't have to wait long before the tantalizing meats are served on plastic tray. The serving method is actually very practical as you can leave the bones on the tray without them getting in the way of the food. Pair the meats with mouthwatering pickles and savory onions which you can get via a standalone station. And don't forget to try a good old southern cold sweet tea! There is also an on-site RV park which offers a nice vacation spot with close proximity to the Chickasaw National Park in the nearby town of Sulphur.

    Very disappointing! Food was ok except they were out of so many things on the menu!!! Overpriced!! They charge you to use a credit card!!!! They charged us for ranch dressing!!!! We had an order of popcorn chicken and wanted a dipping sauce. We got the last serving of peach cobbler - it was old. Maybe rather than going on a cruise the others could pay more attention to their restaurant. It was busy - but the line went quick and wasn’t too long for our food. Lots of local residents there but seems like they are taking advantage of them with their prices.

    Thoroughly disappointing. We first stopped a year ago and the food was fantastic. The second time about 6 months ago was not all that great and today the ribs were horrible. They were dry and overcooked. . My husband hàd the pulled pork sandwich and is now hurling his guts out . I want to like this place, but I just can't.

    Holy mother of god, this place is so good. Easily the best hot wings I've ever had and I only got them because the girl taking my order misheard my request for hot links.

    Delicious food but be careful when ordering, the portion sizes are insane! Getting a one meat dinner will fill me up and usually send me home with leftovers. Their fried okra is the best fried okra that I have had that wasn't homemade and their pecan cobbler is absolutely delicious. I would probably be 30 lbs heavier if I lived near this place.

    Had the brisket, pork loin, beans, black eyed peas and Texas toast. The pork loin and the beans stood out but it was all good. Nice environment. Friendly people.

    The food portion is wild. On average there are about 80% of the people leaving with to-go boxes. The ribs were super delicious! Each one fell off the bone. For the price of the food and the portion you get, you can't go wrong. I will drive the hour drive just to eat here again!

    The brisket here is outstanding, perfect smoke rings but still melt in your mouth tender. The ribs are so good I was mad at myself for eating so much brisket. About a 2 hr drive from home, but will definitely be driving back down soon and often.

    So Good!!! Driving from Nebraska to Dallas and I stumbled upon this bbq joint and I loved it! I had a 2 Meat dinner and I was hungry, but decided not to stuff myself. It was hard to stop, but now I can enjoy leftovers. I had ribs and brisket and will probably get the same thing on my way back North. Although I am tempted to try everything!

    Amazing bbq restaurant tucked away in little Davis. A few opinions from my visits: 1. You really don't need the 2 or 3 meat meal unless you want leftovers. The portions are HUGE! 2. All the meats were really good with the pulled pork out ahead and the ribs in the lead. THE RIBS!! 3. I could go back just for extra large servings of their beans and black eyed peas. Amazing! 4. DO NOT go during peak times. Lines out the door and you will not find a seat, unless you'd like to sit outside. Not bad when the weather is nice, though. 5. Did I mention don't going during peak times? Also go early. They start to run out of things.

    Food was Awesome 🤩🤩🤩! Best BBQ place in all of oklahoma. All the food is delicious and each plate is enough for two. We will definitely come back the next time we are in town. The line is long when you order but it's worth the wait! We also order the loaded potato and it was real delicious and big. If you go to Turner Falls, your next stop should be this place to grab some food!

    Beat bbq ever! The two meat combo is enough to eat on all day and then some. Great service always. Fall off the bone ribs. Worth the drive. Been coming here for over two years now and never had a bad experience. The owners are great and even remember my dads name when he comes in. I have had food from all over the world and this is my favorite place ever

    The chopped brisket sandwich was awesome, unfortunately the brisket was dry and tasteless. Very, very dissatisfied. The pork tenderloin was fair but won't eat it again. Stick to the chopped brisket sandwiches and you'll be more than satisfied.

    You simply can't find a better barbecue smoke house in Oklahoma, as far as I'm concerned. Anything you order will feed at least 2 people and their prime rib is the best I have ever had. If you are a connoisseur of top notch smoked barbecue, you are going to love this place. They also have a large RV park right next door to the place, for those running down I35 that might need an overnight hook up.

    I love it here. Best food and they serve a man's size plate. Costs are little up there but you won't leave hungry for sure, great service is a plus. Joe built a aircraft runway so you can fly in. Has an Rv Park and they are planning a pool. Tunnel Falls and a zip line are real close within 3 miles. Closes Sunday for church.

    Excellent burgers & BBQ . All the food I have had here is the best. I love the ribs . Very affordable. One meal can feed you for 3 days. I stop there every time I am in the area.

    Lots of great food. One plate is enough food for two persons. Clean, country-style picnic ambiance. Nice place to bring large families and out of town guests. There are nice rental cabins on site which are located near the Arbuckle Mountains and Turner Falls!
