Well, I have to say this wasn't the BBQ mecca I was led to believe it was. Pros: clean Cons: food not warm, taste disappointing, is this really BBQ?

End Of An Era 3/21/2010

I use to work at JL's over 20 years ago, it was one of my most favorite jobs that I have had over the years. I moved to Co after I left Ok and have not found a BBQ place that compares yet! How sad that they have closed. When I was employed there Lil and Otis Hoover were the owners and they were great people. They really cared about their employees. Although the building was old even then, we thoroughly cleaned it everynight and it was never dirty. People from all over would stop in specifically for the beans and potatoes alone!. I remember people lined up outside a 1/2 block long! The people I worked with were so awesome Patty, John, Phylicia, Mary and so many others. It was a pleasure to work with all of you! Pros: Food/Hospitality Cons: Closed more

Good but, there are somethings to talk about. 2/15/2010

I use to work for JL's and I had heard alot of talk of the place. I didn't understand what the big deal was even after working there.Although, the Bean's and Bologna were the best!!!! The pickles that were left over guys?? yeah poured in a bucket that wasn't refridgerated, along with every other sauce and thing on the bar! Potatoes would sit for hours, that may be why they seemed unfresh or ""sour""! Yes the place was clean when you walk in but go behind the wall and ""Oh My!"" The service EXCELLENT! I couldn't have worked with better people!!! I loved that job! But the owners!! They are AWFULLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!After the place being closed no one can get ahold of them. All Phone numbers have been disconnected. They won't give the employee's thier last paychecks and hav'nt sent out our W-2's. I am 22 years old and have a 4 year old little girl, yes I am struggling. I need this for my taxes. I have never had my taxes done before because I have been a stay at home mom since my daughter was born until last year. Well if anyone knows what I am to do please fill me in. I would be very appriciative of any advice. Thank You. Pros: Best beans and Bologna ever Cons: The owners!!! more

Best BarBQ in the North, South, East, and West 1/27/2009

Well I have to say that there is no other BBQ in the world. A man once said that if he were to commit a crime and was put on death row, JL's would be his request for his last meal. They DO use real hickory wood for smoking their meat, not liquid smoke. People drive and fly in from out of state to eat there. Beans are to die for, sauces homemade, and the people that work there have been there a long time and you can tell they love their job. Great Atmosphere. Pros: Everything!!! Cons: Be prepared to wear stretchy pants. You will need it. more

Driving S.Mill St Through OK, and want Good Ribs not local fast food......STOP NOW! 11/30/2008

Well let me first start off by saying, whenever you can walk into a barbecue joint, off the highway and immediately see the cleanliness once entering that is an IMMEDIATE PLUS. But before that it helps to get hint of an hickory aroma as you walk up to and into the bldg. Now I've been to a few barbecue joints, but this one has a XL Sampler platter that is well below $20 that includes a sample of all their meats except the pull pork (don't know why but it's ok) and the other meats are woth it. The ribs were tender enough after the first bite your bottom lip may be holding on to the rest of the meat on the bone. The flavor was very good there was a nice rub placed on it, and different that most places. WHILE I HIGHLY recommend this site if you traveling the S.Mill St, if you are looking for smoke rings on the meat that you won't find. Which causes me to speculate on the use of liquid smoke vs. real hickory wood. Nonetheless, the smoked barbecued bologna is great as well as the ultra huge chicken fingers. The sauce is thin, and sweet with a great flavor, and the hot sauce is literally the same with an ultra kick but still a great flavor. Amidst the few cons....this is a place I highly recommend stopping at....by the way the service was A+! Pros: Great Price and Good Taste Cons: Authenticity of Smoked meats (maybe liquid smoked...) more

AWESOME BBQ 5/26/2008

the broasted potato's are the best and the beans with bits of meat can't be beat! just ask for a beef plate you wont be disapointed! Pros: The food Cons: NO comfortable seating(plastic chairs and park benches! more

Gem out of Tulsa. 11/3/2007
