For hours, plumes of hickory-wood smoke crawl over whole cuts of beef brisket. When chefs haul the slabs from the smoker, each presents a study in contrast?caramelized, slightly crisped outsides surrounding soft, fall-apart meaty centers. Oklahoma Station BBQ?s house-specialty brisket crowns its selection of nine meats, which come glazed in signature hot or mild sauce. Both recipes blend ingredients such as brown sugar, roasted garlic, and apple-cider vinegar, and both remain closely guarded by former Spetsnaz agents. In addition to the restaurant's smoked-and-sauced meats, chefs also prepare an extensive sampling of requisite side dishes and desserts, from grilled corn on the cob to banana pudding.
At Smokey’s BBQ and Diner, owners Matt Webb and James Hutzenbiler utilize their more than 29 years of combined restaurant experience to serve a meaty, smoky, saporous menu, crafted using homemade sauces and dry rubs. An array of succulent sandwiches reigns supreme, such as the hand-pulled pork ($3.99), brisket ($5.50), and barbecue-rib ($5.99), all starring slow-smoked meats, which are cooked over a combination of pecan and hickory chips. For appetites that cannot be contained within a kaiser roll, a half ($9.99) or full ($18.95) slab of ribs arrives covered in the diner’s choice of mild, hot, or Carolina-style barbecue sauces, while a chicken-fried steak dinner fills stomach tanks with mashed potatoes, white-pepper gravy, green beans, and a delicious oxymoron ($8.99). Carnivores having trouble choosing just one tangy taste can sample a trio of meats with the barbecue sampler ($12.95), or quiet a barking stomach with the all-you-can-eat catfish ($9.95). Mac 'n' cheese, shoestring fries, and coleslaw represent just a fraction of the 12 available sides, promising diners platters as personalized as a wedding gown covered in barbecue sauce.

Tradition, pride and high standards are all things that the Bedlam BAR-B-Q holds dear! Opened in 2003 and built on the traditional curing and dry-rub applications that have been passed down through generations, Bedlam does its best to keep a piece of Oklahoma City’s ‘Cowboys and Indians’ traditions intact. Just the same way patrons can enjoy history and food, Bedlam BAR-B-Q also features an assortment of community favorite music choices! One of the favorites at Bedlam BAR-B-Q has to be the ‘Smoked Chicken on the Bone’ meal. Smoked over local wood—just like their founding fathers did—the half chicken comes with any two delicious sides. The ribs here are raved about and even the specialty made BBQ sauces. Regardless if your tastes lean to smoked chicken or a platter of three smoked meats (that’d be the delicious ‘Big Red Dinner’), there’s something for everyone at Bedlam BAR-B-Q.
