On my first attempt in November of 2013. We arrived about an hour before closing time and they were out of Q. So we settled for tamales..... I know.... I know.... Apparently Mexican food is supposed to be their other specialty.... I might argue otherwise but I'm here to talk about Q.
Every other time we tried to get in they were closed. So when the opportunity to pass through Pauls Valley right around lunch time on a Saturday presented itself. I jumped at it!
This attempt wasn't the 3rd time I had tried but it turned out to be a charm. We pulled up about 1:30 PM and the parking lot was full of cars. I screeched into a parking space and ran inside before they could run out of Q on me again.
The interior of Bob's tells the story of how many years they have been in business. Newspapers adorn the walls with headlines of significant points in history along with other memorobilia of days gone by and the regulars fill the seats at the front counter.
I'm not sure of the beans were homemade or not but if they came from a can they had been modified and were tasty. The potato salad and cole slaw both appeared to be house made and were delicious.
I didn't get a close up picture of the toast and at first I thought it was two-sided but after further inspection I decided to call it 1 1/2 sided toast. It was well toasted on one side but mostly just butter soaked on the other with a little browning.
Bob's Pig Shop is one of those Q-raunts that has been around long enough to be considered an institution to Oklahoma BBQ. So while I personally wouldn't qualify their Q as outstanding. It's definitely worth making the stop in Paul's Valley to eat at if you're in the area.
