What to get at Bonnie B’s Smokin’ Barbeque Heaven, specialist in Oklahoma-style barbecue: beef brisket. “It’s tender, smoky, and their house-made sauce is good,” says WendyT.

Their beef ribs are fine, too. “I’ve got two words to describe their ribs … rib perfection!!” says mrshankly. “Definitively the best ribs I’ve had anywhere aside from taking ribs fresh out of my own smoker at home.”

The most bizarre thing you can get here: barbecued bologna. It’s an Oklahoma thing, and it’s strangely enjoyable, says WendyT. Other great things: fried catfish, greens, and moist, delicious cornbread. Folks seem to love their beef dishes and be middling on their pork dishes.
