Steve's Rib

Edmond, OK 73003


Open M-Thur 11-9, F-Sat 11-10, Sun 11-8

Steve's Rib makes many of the top BBQ lists for OKC, so I was excited to try it. When the unappetizing plate arrived, I know I was in for a disappointment. Overcooked ribs had no smoke flavor, and little flavor of any sort. The meat nearly disintegrated when I picked up the bone.

Slices of brisket shredded beneath my fork, and what entered my mouth tasted just like roast beef with no smokiness to be found. Luckily the french fries were good for dipping into the very sweet baked beans. Other than the tall cold Boulevard beers, there's not much of a need to stop here.

Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
