Oklahoma Station BBQ

OKLAHOMA: Oklahoma Station BBQ
4331 NW 50th St

Oklahoma City, OK 73112


Open M-Sat 11-9, Sun 11-4

When the first thing they do after you order the brisket is slice it, then meticulously cut off all of the fat AND the bark, you wonder why they bothered smoking it in the first place. Oh wait, did they really smoke it? The meat was barely passable for good roast beef.

Ribs had a nice crust with plenty of seasoning, but they too lacked smoke. The meat had good texture with plenty of moisture and no fat. The sides were self serve, and the slaw and okra were both great. Sure, the ribs were decent and the sides were fine, but that brisket was an abomination.

Anonymous, I assume you're a fan. If they were just having an off day, send me a pic of some good looking brisket from this joint. The slices I got were monochromatic gray slabs with no flavor. I do know that's not good BBQ.

I eat at this oklahoma Station BBQ all the time. It is awesome. I know for a fact you can request your brisket to be untrimmed- because that's how I order it! They basically will custom make your plate if you know what to ask for. Love love love this joint!

yeah, i'm a fanatic, and i'd say this place probably has the city's best ribs.


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.
