John & Cook's Real Pit Bar-B-Que
Don't let the small exterior of this restaurant put you off, because inside you'll find a meal overflowing with flavor. John & Cook's Bar-B-Que is a local Lawton favorite, famous for their hardwood smoked barbecue. Dine on ribs, brisket, sausage and sides including baked beans and coleslaw, but be sure to save room for their famous sweet potato pie and lemon cake.
The first black-owned business in Lawton, John & Cook's Bar-B-Que has been serving great food in a comfortable atmosphere since 1936. Their secret, family recipe has been passed down for four generations, and you can taste the authentic flavor in every bite. Make a trip to Lawton soon to this classic spot, or catch their food trailer from 11am-3pm at the Ft. Sill Sheridan Road Shoppette.
