Summer weather and barbecue go hand-and-hand. If you are craving barbecue, but don’t want to go through the hassle of firing up the grill or smoker, stop by one of these locations in the Tulsa area to get your fix.
Elmer’s BBQ – 4130 S Peoria Ave, Tulsa, OK 74105
Elmer’s BBQ is such a chill spot. You can tell it’s been around for more than a few decades. It’s in the walls, the music, and of course the food. Eating at Elmer’s BBQ makes you feel like you’re “home”. They have a wonderful selection of meats and sides on the menu, and all reasonably priced. My favorite item is the hot link. It has just the right amount of heat to awaken my taste buds but not too much that it overpowers the rest of the meal. If you’re ever on Brookside in Tulsa, OK you should stop by for some hearty and delicious barbecue.
Oklahoma Joe’s Barbecue & Catering – 6175 E 61st St, Tulsa, OK 74136 and 25 W. 5th St, Tulsa, OK
Oklahoma Joe’s Barbecue have great locations if you want to take your family out for some barbecue and catch the latest sporting event on t.v. The barbecued and smoked meats are succulent. They have everything from ribs to turkey, smoked or barbecued to perfection. I personally enjoy their brisket. It’s got the right balance of tenderness and chew. Oklahoma Joe’s Barbecue has the perfect ambiance if you’re looking to host your family and friends to barbecue in Tulsa.
Burn Co. Barbecue – 1738 S Boston Ave, Tulsa, OK 74119 and 500 Riverwalk Terrace #135, Jenks, OK 74037
Burn Co. Barbecue is a “supply and demand” type of barbecue place. They serve barbecue until their smokers are empty. It takes a lot of courage to operate a business using that model. However, Burn Co. Barbecue has been doing exactly that for years. So you know the food must be impressive. The restaurants are cafeteria style seating. Which means you never know who you’ll end up sharing a table with. It’s rustic and laid-back. Which may also describe their barbecue style. My favorite item on their menu is the ribs. They are tender and meaty. If you get a chance to try Burn Co. Barbecue do it! Before they sell out.
