Earl's Rib Palace Restaurant Review

: With a prime location on the Bricktown Canal, Earl’s Rib Palace is one of the area’s favorite barbecue joints. Jump in line to order tender brisket, pulled pork, ribs or smoked turkey --- they're all winners. Hickory-smoked meats are served in large portions, but “light” sizes and a kids’ menu are also available. One sandwich features tender, flavorful pulled pork, and the salads are tasty as well. Find a table inside or out, and enjoy a cold beer while your platter is being prepared. Be sure to order some of Earl’s generous sides --- the fried okra is crunchy, and the baked potatoes can be had “super-loaded.” If you aren't in the mood for barbecue, enjoy the thick cheddar burger with a pickle spear and Earl's addictive curly fries. Finish up with homemade cobbler or a brownie à la mode, and then continue your stroll around Bricktown.
