Linda-Mar Drive In – Tulsa, OK

We weren’t leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight, but we were heading home from Winfield and looking for lunch (in all the wrong places?) when we got to Tulsa.  (Note: That’s TWO thinly-veiled 80s country song references in one sentence!)  This placed us at Linda-Mar Drive In (actually across the street in the grocery store […]

J & W Grill – Chickasha, OK

Please note: Between last night’s barbecue and this morning’s onion burger, there was a simple breakfast burrito.  Don’t worry, faithful followers – we did NOT skip a meal.   The other place mentioned by the reception desk at the hotel in Oklahoma City (OKC) was Nic’s Grill – a place I had on my itinerary […]

Smokin’ Joes Rib Ranch and RV Park – Davis, OK

Okay, on to one of my favorite barbecue joints in the universe – Smokin’ Joe’s Rib Ranch.  Let me go ahead and say this – I am biased towards this place.  The only times I go, I’m bound to be with my favorite people.  And these pictures are from visits in both 2010 and 2011. […]
