Barbecue, barbeque, Bar-B-Q, or BBQ (however you choose to spell it). If you love delicious food from “the barbie” (no, not that blonde doll), then you’ve come to the right place!  Whether your go-to is brisket, pulled pork, or ribs, you’ll be sure to find somewhere on this list that makes you crave your favorite. Yelp rounded up a list of the 20 best BBQ places in Tulsa, so tuck that napkin into your shirt collar, keep those wet wipes nearby, and get to eating!

Did your number one BBQ joint make the list?  Let us know what you think by using the hashtags  #YelpTop20 and #YelpTulsa on Instagram and Facebook! Make sure you follow the collection too, so you can check them all off of your BBQ bucket list that totally exists now.  And don’t forget to leave love, via a review, about your favorite businesses on the list.

Methodology: This is an all-time list of the best bbq spots in Tulsa according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the restaurants and food categories with a large concentration of reviews mentioning derivatives of “bbq,” then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning “bbq.” This list looked at businesses in the cities of Tulsa and Broken Arrow.  If a local chain appeared on the list more than once, we only included the highest rated location.
