Small space but excellent food. They are fast and you order and wait for you food. Pulled pork and potato salad was excellent.

Good place to eat for sandwich and fries. Food is served warm and always more than enough for one person.

We first got to taste Kiser's at an OU tailgating event and were so impressed that we had to find the restaurant to go back for more at a later time. Tasty and cole slaw to my tastes.

Since we are locals, we have stopped by E. State St. location twice. The wait was very long and the food was below average. Not at all happy--food is bland prepared with no imagination.

Been there a few times and never dissapointed. Over the weekend I had the pulled pork w/carolina vinegar, side of grilled veggies and a mint green tea. I've never had a bad meal there.
