These 15 Oklahoma City Restaurants Will Blow The Taste Buds Out Of Your MouthFrom happy hour to dessert, the delicious side of OKC is calling your name.
1. Learn All About Tea And Sweets At AllAboutCha
7300 N Western Ave
Yelp: 5 stars, 62 reviews The AllAboutCha Café started in Korea, moved to Thailand and, of all the places, miraculously made its way here to OKC. And now they’re doing for tea what Starbucks and its Seattle predecessors did for coffee and espresso. But it’s also filling hungry bellies with amazing food. With an avalanche of options including the world’s best macaroons, Korean dak-gal-bee wraps, croissant sandwiches, chocolate blackout cakes and cream horns to go along with your caramel macchiato, you’ll find yourself with the best worst decision of your life.
2. Drum Roll, Please…
4309 N Western Ave
Yelp: 4 stars, 67 reviews If you’re in OKC and you’ve never had a chicken and waffle sandwich, then you need to drop what you’re doing right this second and get yourself over to The Drum Room. Even if you grimace at the idea of chicken and waffles together, this is the dish that will finally convert you to the fried side. But chicken isn’t the only way The Drum Roll knows how to dress up a waffle. Check out the horseshoe to find waffles adorned with steak cut fries and various melted cheeses. As for the fried chicken itself, you won’t find a better, more consistent style. End off with the frozen yogurt and cookies for dinner, and you’ll have officially found your new favorite junk food spot in OKC.
3. Find Your Comfort Food Fix At The Mule
1630 N Blackwelder Ave
Yelp: 4 stars, 144 reviews You know how the song goes: Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. Okay, so The Mule might not be that place, but you will find a trendy but come-as-you-are casual bar with a friendly atmosphere, overflowing with awesome beer and great comfort foods that are like a culinary equivalent of antidepressants. Watch your mood instantly morph to over-the-top amazing after you dive into the grilled cheese appetizer with tomato soup dipping sauce. Along with one of the best beer spots in the city, you’ll also find some of the best sandwiches, too, making it the best lunch spot in town to lift your day from the afternoon slump.
4. A Barbecue Haven At Redrock Canyon Grill
9221 Lake Hefner Pkwy
Yelp: 4 stars, 82 reviews Part American, part Tex-Mex, part wine bar, Redrock Canyon Grill is a gorgeous restaurant with a clean, rustic feel and plenty of room to get comfortable while you dive into the extensive menu. Start with the cornbread skillet and a chunky bloody mary that almost doubles as a meal in itself. The barbecue here is hard to beat, so order up a plate of the Redrock’s Bunkhouse St. Louis Ribs. But if a steak is what you’re in the mood for, the ribeye is one of the best in the city for its price range. Even in the winter, you can enjoy the view of Lake Hefner through the windows as they open the blinds to keep one of their best features available all year long.
5. Get Addicted At The Pie Junkie
1711 NW 16th St
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 47 reviews In case the name wasn’t clear enough, The Pie Junkie is wall to wall pie that you will need a 12 step program in order to quit. But don’t let that steer you away. The only real damage that pie can really do is to tear attention away from cupcakes. But, they’ve had their time to shine and the time for a pie craze is long overdue. That time is now, and it is at The Pie Junkie. Key lime, peanut butter chocolate, drunken turtle pie, French silk, strawberry rhubarb, s’mores, almond joy… You get the idea. Luckily, a pie addiction isn’t as expensive as some other addictions, otherwise you’d be selling your truck to fund your new pie habit in under a month.
6. Dine With The Best At Ludivine
805 N Hudson Ave
Yelp: 4 stars, 93 reviews An upscale venue without being pretentious, Ludvine’s innovation and imagination that goes into every single meal is truly remarkable. Every dish feels more like a work of art than it does actual food. But luckily, it’s all entirely edible. Pablano cantaloupe soup, wild boar shanks, foie gras, baby green bleu cheese salad, charcuterie, bone marrow and so much more… Try finding a restaurant or a menu like this the one at Ludivine anywhere else in OKC and see how fast you come up short. What you will find is why so many people proclaim this as the best restaurant in all of Oklahoma City.
7. A Treasure Worth Searching For At Cheever’s
2409 N Hudson Ave
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 169 reviews Tucked away in a charming, historic building, you’ll find OKC’s hidden gem. Cheever’s offers casual elegance with an ambiance that utilizes every bit of its history. For years, the building was used as a flower shop. Now as a restaurant, Cheever’s uses the refrigerated cases to keep the wine, beer, and desserts cool and on display. You can take your pick of American dishes filled with Southern flair, including steaks and seafood. But the spiced pecan ice cream ball is the jewel of this already perfect crown and is something you’ll find yourself talking about all week long. Cheever’s also has a full bar and a great wine list, giving you the time that you’ll want to hang around
8. Bang A Gong At Guernsey Park
2418 N Guernsey Ave
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 84 reviews Head to the up-and-coming Uptown district behind Cuppies & Joe to find Guernsey Park. This Asian fusion restaurant is the answer to OKC’s modern ethnic wishes. Here you’ll find traditional variations on Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese dishes amped up with modern twists. With superb service, you’ll find yourself choosing between things that you can’t find anywhere else in the city like chicken lollipops, oxtail ravioli, spicy duck breast, and a beef carpaccio. Vegetarian and vegan options are available, making Guernsey the perfect spot for everyone.
9. Bite Into The Best Burger In OKC At Nic’s Grill
1201 N Pennsylvania Ave
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 133 reviews Best burgers in any area are a thing that is often promised but rarely ever meet expectations. The burgers at Nic’s Grill won’t meet your expectations, either, but that’s because they’re too busy blowing them out of the water. A dinner at Nic’s means hands-down the best burger in OKC, but Nic’s also serves up some killer breakfast. If you’re in the mood for something different, go for something off of the special menu, especially if it’s the fried chicken, which is another classic.
10. The Empire Sliced Back
1734 NW 16th St
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 86 reviews Pizza lovers are the easiest yet pickiest group to satisfy. Preferences in crusts, cheeses, toppings, and methods of cooking can vary greatly, making it hard to always get it right for everyone. But, even when it’s not exactly right, it’s still pizza. But when you’re looking for the closest thing to a New York slice here in OKC, head to Empire Slice House. You’ll find the thin, crispy crust that you’re looking for. And even if a NYC slice wasn’t what you were looking for, it’s still great pizza. The appetizers are also pretty bomb. Definitely get a plate of garlic knots along with a Bloody Mary or any of the other handcrafted cocktails to get the meal going.
11. Unwind At Café Kacou
3325 N Classen Blvd
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 163 reviews After a grueling week of long hours at work and way too many vendor machine meals, wake up on the weekend and stumble into to Café Kacou and treat yourself to some Very Berry French Toast to make everything else a distant memory. If you’re feeling especially like breaking all the rules, then make it churros for breakfast. Don’t forget to order a strawberry smoothie that will have you wondering if it was blended using unicorn tears. This Latin-influenced café might sound like it’s only good for an early morning sweet tooth–and it definitely is. But it’s also so much more. Come at lunch for the huevos rancheros, which are easily the best in town.
12. Camilya’s Café
10942 N May Ave
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 34 reviews Gyros are the kind of food that you never really know how much you love until you can’t find a good one. Luckily, you won’t ever have to worry about going through that experience as long as Camilya’s keeps pumping them out. This Mediterranean café will shower you with the best gyros, the freshest hummus, stuffed grape leaves, lamb shank, and much more. And you won’t be able to find a better shawerma plate anywhere in the region. And don’t let the look of the place fool you. It’s a little bit outdated and understated, but obviously that’s because they’re putting all of their energy into their food. Your meal will more than make up for it.
13. A Steak Straight Off The Ranch
3000 W Britton Rd
Yelp: 4.5 stars, 42 reviews One of the best things about steak, other than being steak, is that the less you have to do to it, the better it is. When a steak comes garnished with all the bells, whistles, spices, and gravies, it’s usually because it has something to hide. But the steaks at the Ranch Steakhouse are prime enough to stand on their own. Cooked to a perfect temperature every time, juicy, and plated with deliciously understated sides like asparagus and toast, you’ll quickly change your mind on the way food should be served in case you hadn’t already been converted. It’s one of the pricier places in town, but with food like this, it’s worth every penny.
14. Get Slam Drunk At Republic Gastro Pub
5830 N Classen Blvd
Yelp: 4 stars, 166 reviews Republic Gastro packs a large amount of people into a tiny spot with a loud atmosphere and always a good time. It’s one of the best places to go in the city for a game because of the massive amount of televisions it has both indoors and out. Republic has a huge menu of beers, cocktails and specialty drinks. And the menu is surprisingly fresh and goes beyond the standard bar fare with daily features that always impress, like the sesame peanut Thai chicken lettuce wrap with apple and avocado. So, find yourself here for your next game and avoid the set up and the clean up while getting better food and drinks. It’s an all over slam dunk.
15. Go Northside For The Tacos At Ted’s Café Escondido
2836 NW 68th St.
Yelp: 4 stars, 117 reviews It doesn’t have to be Tuesday to want a good taco. But when you want a good taco, you don’t have to pay a lot for them, either. Ted’s has the city’s best tacos on the cheap along with other Tex-Mex delights. You’ll get fresh chips and salsa before you tackle the choices of fajitas, enchiladas, tortilla soup, burritos and much more. The tortillas are all made in-house here which really helps them to stand out among the many other places to go for Tex-Mex in OKC. So next time you’re craving a little Mexican and want something delicious that is WAY better than any drive-thru but not as big of a commitment as those trendy venues, head to Ted’s for a mouthful of awesome.
