i have been experiencing the joys of driving cross country this past week and thus, my absence. let me tell you that i have seen the entire width of oklahoma and tennessee for that matter. we do have a beautiful country full of good food.
reviews i found online for Payne's were spot on as this was some of the best pork bbq to pass these lips. Payne's is run by Flora and her son and is open tuesday-saurday for lunch and dinner. the building is a little hard on the eyes, it's not much outside or in. but the bbq more than makes up for its very basic, converted garage, curb appeal.
food and wine, travel and leisure, and chowhound.
