Had lunch at billy Ray's way of two colleagues. Two of us had a fried catfish, and one had a template. The food was very good and everybody was pleased with their choice of entrée. After the meal two of us ordered the blackberry cobbler and one awarded the peach cobbler. The cobblers came with ice cream. But cobbler was... More

Billy Ray's sign says catfish and BBQ which isn't all that common a pairing. I went with three old (in both senses of the word) friends for lunch. Our group had catfish, a brisket sandwich, baby back ribs and The Big Budro which is a smoked bologna sandwich. They all came on a tray with butcher paper - no plates... More

Had dinner here because I had seen a comercial and it looked like a great place to eat. YIKES !!!! The food here is horrible. The BBQ meat was greasy, nasty and dry. Im not sure if it was pork.... I was a flavor and texture that I have never experienced world wide. The iced tea tasted woody and old.... More

Okay so I don't text and drive but I do eat my Billy Ray's Bar-b-q ribs and drive. My eyes only close out of the ecstasy I derive from the flavor of the meat and not any silly message from my phone lol. Yum. A bite of pickle and I am a happy driver lol;) Adam would practically fight you... More

If you want amazing BBQ there are far better places (like Albert G's) but if you want a loaded baked potato filled with meaty goodness, then stop on by here!

Ate here on a business trip. Waitress was very nice and fun. But the food took a long time and when it did arrive, half of it was room temperature. The baloney tasted like the packaged type you get at the deli counter. Not like typical smoked baloney you can get in town that is actually good. All meat comes... More

I'm ashamed of my self for not writing about Billy Rays before, I wonder if I was just subconsciously trying to keep it a secret (we locals have been known to do that) but this is one of my favorite restaurants in Tulsa. This is the only place I go in Tulsa for Catfish or BBQ. My wife and I... More

Of all the BBQ places in Tulsa this one has been around a long time and continues to serve good food. Nothing fancy but good food at reasonable prices. Daily specials and while I'm not a big catfish fan I know many people say it's the best they have ever eaten.
