Steve's Rib located just West of Rockwell on Hefner Dr. was the location for the first meeting of the OKC BBQ Eaters Anonymous.

I got there about 6:45 and the place was empty but by about 7:00 PM it was starting to have a steady stream of customers.

I got to meet SmokinOkie. He is a fountain of BBQ information. If he was a book he'd be an Encyclopedia on BBQ... hehe

I ordered a two meat (ribs and pulled pork) with coleslaw and okra and added a hotlink.

The hotlink was the highlight of my meal. Don't know where they get them, SmokinOkie if you can find out please let me know because it was a tasty hotlink, but as I've said in the past about bologna. It's not one of the meats you want to be known for. Ribs, Brisket & Pulled Pork are the 3 main meats I judge a BBQ restaurant by.

The ribs had a good smoke flavor to them but I think they had been sitting in a tray for too long because they had a layer the consistency of jerky all the way around them.

The pulled pork wasn't too bad. I couldn't really taste much smoke or seasoning on it but it was nice and moist and easy to eat. It wasn't good enough to make me want to drive all the way across town again to eat it but it wasn't awful either.

The coleslaw had a bit of a kick to it. I couldn't quite figure out what it was last night. At first I thought it might be horseradish but it didn't have that nasally burn to it that I get from horseradish. While in the shower this morning it came to me that it might have been from white pepper. Whatever it was I liked it but I'm not 100% certain what it was giving it the kick.

I tried both of their sauces and both were good.

The place was clean and the service was friendly and prompt. I was greeted with a "Hello!" from the cashier as I entered the door.

On my Rib Bone scale of 1-10 I rate Steve's 5 Rib Bones. I'd eat there again but only if I happened to be on that side of town.

Is this the same Steve's that's in Edmond? If so, it's alright, but nothing to write home about. A lot of people love it. But I guess a lot of people like County Line, too. lol

Steve's is good, not great. It is very good for catering type meals.

Steve was an architect by trade before he got into the BBQ business, which started out as the stands inside the former Homeland stores near his locations.

Yep, I agree on the good but not great.... The night I was there the ribs had been under a lamp for awhile. So I don't think I got their best product the evening I was there.

Go by there all the time just never stopped. Stopped at Papp's on may the other day. To high for the amount you get. Ribs were a little tough but i love there service! But then really can a Q resturant really produce like a backyard?
