I am visiting from Seattle for a week, and would like to try some restaurants Oklahoma City locals would be proud to claim.

If you had a special guest or visiting family, where would you take them?

In other words, name your favorite places to eat! Thanks!

There are some really great places to eat in OKC, but our favorite place, without a doubt, is Cheevers. It's upscale comfort food. It's great for lunch or dinner, and they also have a really good Sunday brunch. I've never had anything there I didn't love. If you are in the mood for steak I would also recommend Red Prime, which is actually owned by the same company. While not inexpensive, it is worth every penny.

If you are in the mood for something really casual, try Big Truck Tacos. It's in the same neighborhood as Cheevers. Very different, not your run of the mill type tacos. They have the usual, steak and chicken tacos, but also, brisket, bison and tongue. If you are feeling adventurous, try the 5th Amendment taco. It's different every day, and they won't tell you what it is. Just order it and see what you get.

We also enjoy Red Rock Canyon Grill on Lake Hefner. Its a great place to watch the sunset and if the weather is nice, sit outside and have a drink on the deck. There are a couple of other places on the lake that are nice as well but the only other one we ever frequent is Mama Roja's Mexican Grill. Again you can sit outside and have a drink and watch the sunset. Sometimes they will have a band playing at the outside bar.

The Paseo Grill is also really good. It's in the arts area called the Paseo. It's really a cool, kind of dark and intimate place. Even their meatloaf is good.

Anyway, these are just a few of the great places here. I'm sure someone else will make some more great suggestions.

Just north of bricktown there's a little pizza place called the Wedge. My wife and I really like it. I wouldn't make it your top choice, but it would be a nice choice for lunch if you are in the area. It has a good atmosphere and good food. Also, if you like fajitas, I'd go to Ted's cafe escondido. There are several of them around the OKC area. If you go there then remember that you and another person can easily split a signle order of fajitas.

Would second Cheevers and Big Truck Tacos. Caddycorner to Cheevers is a new place named Tuckers Onion Burgers. I've learned that onion burgers are sort of an Oklahoma specialty. The place is delicious, and they serve fresh limeade and old fashion shakes as well.

Also, OKC has a huge Viet community right along Classen b/w 23rd and 50th. So there are a ton of Pho places. Its not the prettiest neighborhood, but that area is nationally known and has been profiled in the NY Times.

Earl's Rib Palace off of Western/63rd I believe.

You won't get that kinda BBQ in the Northwest. Better capitalize on it while you can.

Panang - 9022 S Pennsylvania Ave - Thai - great lunch special

Cajun King - 700 Ed Noble Parkway - Norman - buffet but really good beignets and catfish that the server brings to your table - so go easy on the buffet and wait on the catfish and beignets

Misal of India - 580 Ed Noble Pkwy - Norman - buffet at lunch - very good

Himalayas - 709 N Moore Ave - Moore -

Bella Vista - 5801 S Western Ave - very good Italian

Tacos San Pedro - 2301 SW 44th -

Abel's Mexican - 6901 South May Avenue

Earl's in Moore

5 Guys in Moore if you haven't had it and want it

Two Olives Cafe - 201 N Broadway St - Moore

Il Dolce Gelato - 937 B SW 25th St - Moore - really good gelato

For more expensive evening:
Mahogany Prime - 3241 W Memorial Rd - steak
Red Prime - 504 N Broadway - steak


So many other places can't really think of all them.

I've heard Tuckers is great, but its only been open a couple of weeks and I haven't had a chance to try it yet. Tuckers is owned the by the same company that owns Cheevers and Red Prime. They also own Repulic Gastropub in the Classen Curve. It is a really cool place is. Very upscale kind of pub/sports bar in a new/upscale shopping area just across from the Chesapeake Energy campus. The food is really good there, but my only complaint was I felt it was a bit pricy for the amount of food served. It would definitely be worth a visit though.

Another place I forgot to mention earlier is Bella Forte Glass Studio/Italian Jim's Restaurant in downtown Edmond. This is a really cool new place which is an Italian restaurant that is connected to a glass blowing studio. The food is very good, great pizzas etc and you can watch glass being blown while you wait for your table. The restaurant is decorated with some of the beautiful examples of the glass being blown and is all for sale. It's a very different concept and seems to be doing very well. I would call ahead to make sure they are blowing glass before you go because I don't know if they are working in the studio every evening or what.

Bleh!
I know its an OKC institution, and maybe it's because I haven't lived here that long, but it just doesn't even come on my radar. It's okay, but it's just never really done much for me.
