We had a group of 40 and they accommodated us! Service wasn't any slower. Food was amazing. Best coleslaw, green beans and potatoes salad. The platters are awesome with all the varieties of meats.

Maybe it was because I came an hour before closing, but this was a very poor experience. I ordered the house special badwich. Unfortunately, it was actually quite bad. The meat was lukewarm and dry. The side dishes were tasteless. The bologna sausage tasted awful. The whole place felt rather run down. Only bright spots were the friendly service and... More

There was nothing wrong with elmers when we visited. The meat is tender, and the potato salad is also very good. The beans are very sweet, lots of brown sugar. I would not tell you to avoid it, however there are other options in tulsa that are better.

This is one of our favorite places to eat and also for catering. If you are uncertain as to what to order, go for the sampler. Also, the pulled pork is great. Most prices are from $7 to $10 and they have around eight choices all 100% hickory smoked. There is a choice of one sidee from several selections. No... More

Elmer's Barbeque has some of the best BBQ ever! We ordered the sampler platter and it was all great. The ribs and chopped beef were favorites, but the smoked sausage and hot links were really good too. Be sure to take in some of the artwork hanging on the walls.

Found this place on Trip Advisor. It's a little hole in the wall which usually mean delicious and Elmer's did not disappoint. .. my friend and I had to take our time eating the Chopped Beef and Badwich sandwiches. The Beef was soooo tender and the BBQ sauce was so unique. It tasted like it had either Cinnamon or Nutmeg... More

Their moto is "It Be Bad" and it sure is! We head for Elmer's whenever we make it to Tulsa. This is authentic BBQ that has been around for years. The owner, Keith Jimerson, has a loyal local following. My favorite is the pulled pork. I admit to not trying everything because I love the pork with a side of... More

In my recent quest to locate my favorite places to eat, especially BBQ places, I read the reviews and comments and thought it sounded pretty good, worth a visit for sure. Walked in and got a good vibe, the mood and decor looked like the perfect out of the way BBQ joints, the kind where you find amazing food. However... More
