This place first appears to be a tiny hole in the wall - but once you get in - it's quaint and has a fun, very casual atmosphere. We were in a large group and did have to wait for quite awhile to be seated...More

Great food, Huge portions (really think about sharing)! Great service and the couple of times I have been in there they have had good blues bands playing. It's a little loud by the stage but they also have a great patio where the tunes are...More

This place has an awesome setting in an old building in the blue-dome district in downtown Tulsa. The food is excellent. I'm rating it 4 stars out of 5 because they were out of several items on a Saturday evening at 7. Maybe if you...More

We have gone to Tulsa twice...and have eaten here BOTH times. My husband (meat and "taters" kind of guy) says it is the best BBQ he has ever eaten. The baked beans are amazing! The live music is wonderful. The place stays pretty busy and...More

Really the saving grace for this restaurant during my visit was the waitress (I think her name was Christine or Christina). She was so nice and a delight. The food though (except the chicken), was pretty bland and not very impressive. The potato salad had...More

I had the Mississippi Chicken Club....YUMMY!! Candied Bacon.....Fried Green Tomatoes.....Heaven! The only reason I gave the service a 4 star instead of 5 is due to my Bock being knocked over and it getting onto my clothes. Large portions, lots of menu choices....great smoked BBQ.

My husband had been wanting to visit this place for awhile, so we decided to take my in-laws one Saturday afternoon. I was surprised it wasn't busier since it was around lunch time, but it's probably best that it wasn't. All of the waitresses were...More

Food was great! This is our second time back. Problem barefoot, dirty, drunks in the bar. I am not sure if they are hobos or want to be hippy's. But the last thing I want while I am eating is dirty barefoot drunks walking past...More

The brisket was dry and a bit over-cooked, but the serving was large, I couldn't eat it all. Baked beans were wonderful! The service was pretty bad, actually. We were a group of 10, and they couldn't get the drinks right, especially the tea. People...More
