1738 S Boston Ave., 500 Riverwalk Terrace, Jenks
Review from September 2017: "The drumsticks didn’t come from little chickens. These were huge. The skins were charred almost black and covered tender meat underneath. These are a bargain."
201 N. Highway 11, Sperry
Review from August 2018: "I had some of the biggest, juiciest, meatiest and flavorful ribs ever on my visit to Buffalo’s BBQ. Pulled pork, bologna and sliced brisket were tender and tasty, and the Wednesday special — prime rib — was simply a slice of heaven."
2000 W. Reno St. , Broken Arrow
Review from April 2018: "The two long ribs were meaty, nearly falling off the bone and had enough fat to retain a natural flavor. The five slices of brisket were so tender they were close to being shredded. The four thick slices of bologna were fine, if not exceptional."
421 E. First St., 2748 S. Harvard Ave.
Review from November 2013: "My fondness for smoked bologna has increased tenfold since I learned other states turn up their noses at this surprisingly tasty peasant dish, and the Albert G’s version is a good one."
25 W. Fifth St.; 1124 S Lewis Ave. in the Mother Road Market; 6175 E. 61st St.; 333 W Albany St, Broken Arrow; 19361 NE Robson Rd. A, Catoosa
Review from December 2017: "Burnt ends are among my favorite barbecue items. They are cut from a smoked brisket, charred a bit on the outside, sometimes a little fatty, tender and always flavorful. I had a big portion of the chunky ends on a kaiser roll and added some of Oklahoma Joe’s regular sauce, and it was terrific."
4130 S. Peoria Ave.
Review from March 2012: "I have seen similar combinations at other barbecue joints, but for some reason the Badwich at Elmer's BBQ stands out above the rest. It is a layered affair, starting with a slice of smoked bologna. Then comes the chopped beef, much of which you can figure will fall into your black-and-white checked paper-lined tray as you eat the sandwich. Above that is a hot link or smoked sausage sliced in half."
3524 S.W. Blvd; 1904 S. Elm Place, Broken Arrow
Review from March 2011: "All of the meats were slathered in housemade barbecue sauce. The ribs were tender and tasty but still firm to the bone, the catfish had a fresh flavor and terrific cornmeal breading, and the bologna was outstanding."
2021 E. Apache St.
Review from August 2011: "The three-meat dinner included two St. Louis-style ribs, a mound of chopped beef and chunks of sausage. St. Louis-style means a short, clean cut across the ribs, and mine were tender and flavorful."
601 S. Sheridan Road
Review from December 2014: "The bologna — an Oklahoma specialty too often overlooked — I had the next day was terrific. It had a big, smoky flavor and nice texture. It was served on a bun, and after adding the barbecue sauce, I wound up eating it with a knife and fork."
2225 N. Harvard Ave.
Review from October 2011: "The long, meaty pork ribs had just enough fat for good flavor. The short ribs were crispy and chewy on the outside - almost black - yet pink and tender inside."
5251 E. Kenosha St., Broken Arrow
Review from September 2012: "I tried all of the sauces - Head Country regular and hot, a smoky number from Sa-Smokin of Tulsa and a sweet Ranger Creek sauce that I was told was served for years at the Smoke Stack Barbecue near Wagoner - and I enjoyed all for different reasons."
3807-A S Peoria; 7719 E 91st St., 5225 S Sheridan Road; 104 N. Adams Road, Sand Springs; 807 E A St., Jenks; 2427 W. Kenosha,
Broken Arrow; 12416 E 86th St N., Owasso; 1024 E. Taft St., Sapulpa
Review from January 2014: "The Wishbone was a four-meat combo, and ours included four slices of smoked chicken, five slices of brisket, two slices of bologna and four ribs. The chicken was moist and flavorful, definitely above average."
multiple locations, including the original at 1601 S. Harvard Ave.; 918-742-2742
Review from April 2019: "The star of the night was the Carolina pulled pork sandwich. It was stacked high with shredded pork, lettuce, tomato, a flavorful and crunchy coleslaw and Carolina mustard on a bun. It was a big mess and terrific. More napkins, please."
6835 E. 15th St.
Review from April 2016: "The Hogfather was so tall that it was difficult to get a full bite. The bun seemed overwhelmed as items slid around the different layers and onto my plate, and I should have resorted to a fork and knife. But I soldiered on, and it was a terrific, tasty mess."
782 E Pine St.
Review from August 2013: "The rib was meaty and so tender it was falling off the bone. The bologna was cut thin and had a good flavor and texture, and the cornmeal-battered catfish was flaky and had a fresh taste."
