Ball BBQ, McAlester, OK

Ball Hickory Pit Bar-B-Q on Urbanspoon

We were in McAlester for Ian to take his driving test this afternoon, and decided to try Ball for lunch.

Ian got ribs, and I got a meal that was smoked ham, chopped beef, and ribs. The ham was sliced thin and had a nice smoky flavor. The beef was soaked in hickory or BBQ sauce like a sloppy joe; not my favorite way to treat brisket. The ribs were pretty good, fairly tender and with lots of meat and good smoky flavor, but still a lot of stringy meat. The slaw (cream-based), potato salad (almost whipped in consistency), and pintos were pretty standard and were completely eaten.

Tea was self serve. You order at the counter. Our check was $33.93, good value for the amount of food. I would go back here.
