Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 April 2018 via mobile

I’m a Tennessee gal, so it’s hard to compare bbq with “TEXOMA!” Especially when you’ve had the best of the best in Memphis bbq!
But their bbq chicken has a nice flavor. The Ribs are great! Very tender! Please keep up the good work on these!!!!! I don’t care for Brisket.
Restaurant is clean, friendly service. Beans are ok.
The potato salad taste like “store bought” potato salad!!!!! Needs a new recipe! (Ask Dallas restaurant, RED HOT & BLUE!)
Will continue to eat here because it’s the best bbq restaurant of all the bbq we have in Durant!

Located in downtown Durant, this little BBQ place seems to be a local favorite. We stopped in for a weekend lunch and the place was pretty crowded. The interior has a 1950's diner vibe. Service was friendly and attentive. All the meats (turkey, pulled pork and sausage) were very tasty and the sauce was bold and flavorful. The standout dish for me was the spicy, fried green beans that are served with Ranch dipping sauce - excellent! The corn fritters were also good but a little on the "sweet" side. Overall, it was a most enjoyable meal for a very reasonable price.

We have had BBQ at Sugarfire Smoke House in St. Louis, 17th Street BBQ in Marion, IL, Hutchins, Bubba's, and Katy Trail Ice House in TX, as well as JL's near Pryor, OK and MyPlace in Muskogee, OK, but our GPS led us to Main Street BBQ on a recent trip through OK on our way to north Dallas. What a great find! Many of the BBQ restaurants that we have visited are award winners in one or more categories, but by our judgment Main Street BBQ wins in every category. When we sat down at our table and told the manager that we were first time visitors from out of state, she brought us a sample platter so we could try their several offerings of chopped and sliced brisket, pulled pork, ribs, smoked chicken and turkey, an array of their sausages as well as their famous fried green beans. This platter was a meal in itself, but I then ordered a sliced brisket sandwich platter with two sides; my wife ordered a two meat platter of ribs and smoked turkey with two sides. We were also served complimentary sides of sliced onions and pickle spears. My mugs of Shiner Bock were cold and inexpensive. Of course, we took most of our meals with us to feed our teenage grandson when we arrived in north Dallas. In addition to the generosity and friendliness of the manager, our waiter, Martin, was very professional and courteous. We arrived in the middle of the lunch hour. It is a first come, first seating restaurant, but we had a very short wait for a booth. The servings of fried catfish served at the table near us looked as good as our BBQ plates. Our sides of fried pickle spears and barbeque beans were equally delightful. We could not believe the generosity of our servings. Main Street BBQ has become a destination restaurant for us any time we are passing through Durant. Even though the restaurant is located downtown, it has easy to access from the main highway and by-pass around Durant. If you have not been there, you must go.

Stopped in after a ballgame and ordered two meat plates. You get a large serving of meat of your choice (I had sliced brisket and husband had ham) along with your sides. Food was great. Staff was friendly. Service was fast. We are locals and will def go back.
