In the dining area at Oklahoma Joe’s hang two posters. One is a picture of Chef Wolfgang Puck with Joe’s Pitmaster Joe Davidson with a quote from Puck that says, “The best BBQ I have ever eaten,” and another with a quote from Anthony Bourdain that reads “One of 13 places to eat before you die.” Both quotes refer to the Kansas City location of Oklahoma Joe’s now called Joe’s Kansas City.


The baked beans are among the best items on the menu at Oklahoma Joe’s, with three types of beans, hunks of chopped brisket and a rich, barbecue-heavy sauce.
