You can't come to Pryor for long before hearing about the JL's BBQ. This place has some great BBQ for those that are looking for some messy eating. Food is priced decently but be prepared to carry your own plates and refill your own drinks.

Cafeteria style presentation with lunch specials. All of the bbq is good, not great but better than most. I really like the hot links and the Bologna. The place offers several sides but they offer potato wedges which are spectacular. The portions are generous and one meal can easily serve two. The sauces they offer are great but the hot... More

I used to go her as a kid growing up locally. Now as I travel home each year for the holidays , this is a favorite place that is always on my to-do list. I'm particularly fond of the chicken and brisket, but NOTHING beats the sauce.

Go hungry!!! Price seems high but a meal enough to feed 2 people. Have tried everything and always good. The 1lbs+ home cut fries that just one of sides are well seasoned.

Always good food, and a ton of food for the price. It's a little expensive, but I always get two to three meals out of mine. Love the sauce. It's my favorite.

If you love barbeque and enjoy a happy atmosphere, then JL's is the place for you. If you are a heavy eater, then they will fill you up, if not, you'd better get half a plate. Sooooo yummy!

We stopped at JL's for dinner after being at Rocklahoma all day...what a great place! The staff was so friendly and made us feel right at home. We asked for some recommendations and they gave us "samples" (HUGE bites) of things to try before we made our selections. I don't eat bologna but they recommended I try it, and I... More
