Trip Advisor made me want to visit Boomer Sooner Barbecue for lunch. It was tasty and reasonable in cost though, like most bbq, not the most food for the dollar. Even so, the value was in the taste and I join in recommending Boomer Sooner.

I have visited twice. Both times the meat has been very good. My favorite thing is their potato casserole side. I can't remember exactly what they call it, but it has cheese and bacon in it and it is wonderful. You can't beat the friendly...More
