The ribs were perfect! Okra was hot and crispy! They are great people. Friendly fast service! Drive thru option is great and you won't be sorry stopping here to pick up dinner for you and the family.

Their meat always tastes great no matter the kind of meat, preparation method or even the time you had to wait. They're pretty quick and even the fried okra is grand. Family atmosphere, relaxed, good eatin'!

Excellent food - service and cool lil place. You can miss driving right past this. Seems to be like an old gas station but that's the cool part. If you roll your window down you can smell the deliciousness; so park and come on in...More

Van's is a long time vendor in Oklahoma. The BBQ is very good and very consistent. The sauce is nice with understated tones that doesn't overwhelm the meat. Very good selection of meat choices and dessert choices.
