I've never been to Mexico, but I desperately want to go! If I were to go to Mexico, This is what I would envision the cuisine to be! Abel's has to be the closest thing to AUTHENTIC you can possibly get in town! The street tacos are fresh and handmade, so are the salsas and the platter dishes! Its all so good I cant possibly say enough!
The wait staff is always the same people, It appears that have little turnover of employees, and the food is ALWAYS the same! You must give Abel's a TRY!!
This is becoming my new favorite pub! Why, you ask? Awesome gourmet sandwich fare, fabulous drinks and snacks and there is ZERO cigarette smoke (we hate smoke) !! The sandwiches and salads are made with gourmet ingredients you dont see everyday a have a "high brow head chef" feel without the white table cloth price.
If you go to The Mule you MUST try the Wisconsin Cheese Curds!! Indescribably good and DEEP FRIED!! Oh yeah baby,,,,
The drinks are reasonable and well made and the atmosphere is upbeat and fun! Call your friends and stop by for cocktails and nosh!
I have to confess what drug me into Kitchen No. 324 were the pictures on Urbanspoon, Yes, yes, I pay attention to the pictures. The chicken pot pie with the chicken leg sticking out intrigued me so much, I HAD to give this place a try.
First, the place is a newly renovated building in downtown OKC across from the federal courthouse. I'm sure the employee's down there already love this place! The first thing I can say is its definitely a place to take someone if your wanting the an elegant brunch place versus a "diner" setting. Its definitely not a "diner".
I ordered the Fried Green Tomato Eggs Benedict and it in no way disappointed!! Delicious fresh and unique all at once. My daughter had the French Dip (double dipped) was fantastic!! This is definitely a place for special occasions and "dress up" days. Its elegant and clean setting is comforting and the food is nothing like anything else. Don't miss out on this one!
Saying what ISN’T good about Blackbird Gastropub is a much
shorter list than trying to tell you everything GOOD about it. In fact the bad list
may be an empty list. Blackbird is not your typical “pub”, it’s an upscale
moderate dining establishment that has excellent service, delicious food and
$2.00 well drinks every day. YES SPORTSFANS, $2.00 well drinks!!! A rum and
coke is a measly $2.00 and $1.00 more for a double. WHEW! I love this place.
Family friendly with great service and did I happen to
mention $2.00 well drinks? WOO HOO! We go here every time we go to Norman now.
The wait staff knows us by site and we live 30 minutes away. TRY IT OUT!
I’m stunned it’s taken me this long to blog about Iron
Starr. I have enjoyed this place for years.
The drinks are top notch, the menu has a large selection of items you don’t see
every day and they call themselves a BBQ place. It’s so much more than that.
The drink menu has a tasty and fun collection of unique
takes of old favorites such as a Bloody Mary made spicy and delicious with
their own custom twists. They have a BEEF
TENDERLOIN SALAD that is my favorite item on the menu. Grilled pieces of tenderloin
in an exclusive mixture that is so good you won’t believe it!! Its family friendly and great for couple’s
dinners. Do yourself a favor and try Iron Starr!
I was pleasantly surprised by this bar & grill having walked in expecting to half choke from cigarette smoke which was not the case. They have very good ventilation as I noticed when we walked in. They offer daily lunch specials and affordable, large sized portions that are fresh made to order. The drink I had was a tall rum & coke and was very reasonable at $4.50. The hamburger steak was excellent and the accompanying salad was fresh and delicious.
The food was served quickly and the service was good overall. Fun place, lots of TV's and large menu with a wide variety of choices! GIVE COUSINS A TRY!!
Joeys was GOOD when they were on Classen.. They are FANTASTIC at their new location!! The pizza is awesome and the dessert is to DIE FOR!! The new location boasts great seating and a full service bar and the prices are NOT reflective of the usual Downtown/Bricktown fare!
Being a "thin crust" pizza hater, I was so happy to see they have choices in regards to crust types. We had hand tossed and it was fantastic. Lightly oiled and sprinkled with Parmesan its was a delight!
Prices are surprisingly reasonable and the food is super good! The mixed drinks won't gouge and the beer specials are great! Family Friendly, great service and just a fun place to be!! CHECK IT OUT your really missing excellent Pizza!
