Well today we made a stop at My Place Bar-B-Q in Muskogee, OK. We have left Oklahoma City to begin the last leg of our trip heading home. Thus far it has been a wonderful trip. I’m figuring on 4 – 5 days to make our 3-day journey home, so no hurries / no worries. Heading east on Interstate 40 we wanted to hit up one more spot in OK before leaving the state. Being a Sunday, several places were closed. I finally found this one doing a “Google Maps” search. It didn’t look too far off our course so off the interstate we went. So here we go.
Where is My Place Bar-B-Q?
My Place Bar-B-Q is located on Gibson St. in Muskogee, OK. Trivia question: How many remember Merle Haggard’s “Okie From Muskogee”? I do and that’s one of the things that sparked my interest. I wanted to see the town that he sang about. Oh I’m sure it has changed in the last 40 – 50 years but this was nostalgia. After riding through a small portion of the historic downtown area I could see this song taking form. Looked like a really cool old town. As it turns out Muskogee was a good 20 – 25 miles north off the interstate. A nice ride none the less. My GPS did disappoint me. It took me through several neighborhoods along with a few roads I thought I’d need the 4 Wheel Drive before getting us to the restaurant. But at last we did make it.
We did spot a pretty nice antique mall along the way. So after a heavy lunch we went to the Old America Antique Mall on 32nd Street. This was a fun stop with lots of “stuff” for people collecting pretty much anything.

The Restaurant and Staff:
My Place Bar-B-Q is a very nice restaurant. They have a large dining room and was very well taken care of when we visited. Our waitress, Tammy, was very nice and friendly. She kept tabs on us as we ate to be sure everything was ok. The other people working there were all nice. We enjoyed our visit. Everyone stayed pretty busy so we didn’t get to spend much time talking to a lot of folks there.
Our Choices at My Place Bar-B-Q:
Both of us ordered the buffet so here’s the break down on what we had.
The Sliced Beef was very good. It was soaked in juices from the meat making it very tasty and moist. There was also Chopped Beef which was good too. It had a little sauce on it and gave it a good flavor.
On the pork side we had Sliced Pork. The pork had a pretty good flavor though it didn’t have a lot of smoke flavor. They also had Spare Ribs on the buffet. These turned out to be my favorite today. The ribs had an excellent smoke flavor as well as being a little charred on the outside. These ribs rocked today.
Other meat choices today included Smoked Bologna which was very good as well. It had an excellent smoke flavor and had also been charred on the outside like the ribs were. The flavor was real good. Finally we also tried the Fried Chicken Bites. The chicken was also good. They were nice little chunks of white meat fried just right.
Now let’s check out some side dishes. We had some Baked Beans with really good flavor. Next came the Fried Okra. This was some good crispy okra. It didn’t have any special flavoring added to it. Good none the less. We also tried the Onion Rings. These were nice and crispy on the outside with sweet onion slices on the inside. Pretty good.
The final side was Fresh Cut Fries. These are not on the buffet. Your waitress will bring these to you fresh cooked. They were excellent. Also, they will bring you all you want. So if you start running low, just ask your waitress for more. Can’t beat that.
We tried a couple of desserts. One was cake with caramel on it. This cake had something like a graham cracker base. It was pretty awesome and the best we tried today. I also tried the Cherry Pie. The pie is a basic cherry pie, good but even better with ice cream on top. No complaints here.
My final take on My Place Bar-B-Q, we really enjoyed ourselves. The food was far better than what I expected from a buffet. Everyone we met was very nice. I had no complaints and would stop there again if we make it back to Muskogee.
