What's a small Oklahoma town without a first-rate barbecue joint? Skiatook passes the test with Mac's, a fixture in the community north of Tulsa since 1985. Founder Mike McMillan dishes up a mess of tasty hickory or pecan-smoked meats that attract folks from the big city and the rest of northeast Oklahoma every day at modest prices.
At Mac's Barbecue, best bets on the menu are the three-meat combo (ribs, slices brisket and turkey) and the mac sandwich (a bun piled high with chopped beef, bologna and hot links, drenched in a tangy sauce). While you're there, check out the many plaques McMillan has picked up over the years for taking top honors at prestigious barbecue competitions all around the country. And don't leave without wolfing down the peach cobbler for dessert.
