Reviewer's Comments:   This little place has been around for probably two to three years. I didn't stumble on to it until about a year ago. Apparently the owner used to do a lot of smoking on his own and also entered various BBQ cook-offs, which by looking at the many ribbons which cover the walls of this former "Tastee-Freeze" carryout, he did quite well at! Not only is all the meat unbelievably moist and tender, but the prices are shockingly reasonable. There are two sizes of sandwiches a small which comes on a regular size hamburger bun costs $1.50, and the large which comes on an oversized bun for $3.00. Neither of which have the mountian of meat weighed before being placed on the bun! The daily traditional fare is Pork Shoulder, Beef Brisket, Chicken, Hot Links, Turkey and Ribs. On certain days he also has various other options such as Cajun Pork Chops and Brauts just to mention a couple. Besides sandwiches, he also offers various "dinners" as well. Sides consist of slaw, creamy potato salad and some very "zippy" beans which contain at least three different varieties. For $5.00 I can grab a large sandwich, side and a drink and be totally stuffed. You may have noticed the atmosphere rating being a little low, and that would be due to the fact that there is one table inside with 6 chairs as well as 2 stools at a ledge along a window. Other than that if the weather's decent you can sit down at one of three picnic tables outside, or you'd better plan on takin' it with you. From about 11:00 a.m. til 1:00 p.m. It's standing room only and it's not unusual to see a couple of folks left standing outside waiting for enough room to open up inside so they can get their order in. You may also call in or Fax your order in to avoid the rush. Regardless of the crowd, the food is always served up quick. Catering is also available regardless of size, as well as custom smoking (I had them do my Xmas turkey). So, if you either live in or around Wichita, Ks. or are just passing through, I'd make this a definate place to check out!

Reviewer's Comments:  This was a surprize stop. We hadn't planned to stop as early as we did, but are we glad that we did. The resturant is very clean, with homey decore. The owner of the Catteman's was a very friendly couple. He was very busy getting ready for Sunday, but had time to meet me and explain his barbecue. This was a wonderful eating experience. A little out of the way but well worth it.The beef is moist with a great ring of smoke,and large portions.Hope you have as good an experience as we did.

Oklahoma Joes' is just a bitt off the wall, located on the line between johnson and wyandotte counties in kansas. The restaurant is inside a conoco gas station, with windows overlooking a liquor store. yeah thats a little different, but the meat and the beans are incredible.
