Located in the Uptown 23rd neighborhood of OKC, Back Door Barbecue is another soon-to-be staple of my diet. I can’t express how delicious this food was. Bye bye, Norman Rudy’s. This is true love because I am abandoning a TEXAS restaurant for you, Back Door BBQ. Understand this Texas native’s sacrifice.
Pictured above is my order, the one meat plate (pulled pork) with two sides, the slaw, which wasn’t overly creamy and had cilantro and bell pepper (exciting!), and the fried pickled okra, which I can’t stop talking about. I am getting really good at working fried pickled okra into my everyday conversations.
Here’s B with his Q-ban, which he added the house mustard sauce to, claiming it took the sandwich “to the next level”. It was pretty fantastic. He also got the fries, which were obviously homemade and tasty, especially with all of the sauces that we tried liberal amounts of. Can you have too much BBQ sauce? I think not.
Even though I was so full, I couldn’t leave without trying a pie-in-a-jar. I mean, check out that adorable deliciousness! This was their coconut + banana cream pie, which was pretty amazing. I would have liked more crust, but we all know I’m a carb addict that likes crust better than filling in every pie. Warning to not-coconut-lovers: this puppy has a ton of coconut, do NOT order. Also, why are you so weird, coconut hater?!
Final verdict: I plan on eating here so often they memorize my order.
