Small space but excellent food. They are fast and you order and wait for you food. Pulled pork and potato salad was excellent.

Good place to eat for sandwich and fries. Food is served warm and always more than enough for one person.

We first got to taste Kiser's at an OU tailgating event and were so impressed that we had to find the restaurant to go back for more at a later time. Tasty and cole slaw to my tastes.

Since we are locals, we have stopped by E. State St. location twice. The wait was very long and the food was below average. Not at all happy--food is bland prepared with no imagination.

A casual place with such a huge variety! And such great prices. We do our own bbq'ing, and we loved this place. We had loaded potatoes with chopped brisket and nacho cheese. Huge servings. It cost a total of $14.87. You can get pork, chicken,...More

Their food used to be very good, but it is now just "okay". The prices are not outrageous but they're not great. The service is OK too. We'll return, but it's not our first choice.
