I travel all over Oklahoma on a weekly basis, when I have time I like to stop to eat. Good food is hard to find. What is your favorite and where is it?

1) OKC Pizza Malano, GREAT food... if they can find your house Suggest pickup only.

2) Weatherford Small fill up station about 1 mile north of I-40, 3rd (?) exit traveling west. Really great food, I know its a filling station but the absolute BEST philly steak Iv'e ever had. Awsome burgers too.

Idabel, Ok - has got this great little place - but it's been so long since I've been there (my husband spent most of his growing years there - he's Choctaw) I can't remeber the name!
It's like 'dairy dell' or something like that. On the main strip close to walmart.

Oh - and over on the bypass - there is a terrific REAL mexican rest. - can't remeber that name either (hubby not here to ask) - but I would absolutely go back to both!!

what do you do to travel OK regularly.

Find the Greek House in Norman, just across the street from the University on Main St. I believe. If you like Greek Heros this is the place. One of my favorite places to eat in the COUNTRY! Owned by an older Greek couple that have been there for at least 15 years that I know of. Its a small hole in the wall type of place, but AWESOME food!

Good Luck

If you come to Tahlequah stop at Lucky's on Muskogee Ave. and have an Indian Taco. They are really good. Or go to the China Buffet on 62 bypass.

Some of the best Mexican around is in Norman at Tarahumara's, just north of Main Street on Porter near the hospital. It is always packed, and the owner practically lives there. The salsa is awesome!

Also, Melton Drug in Anadarko is awesome. It is an old fashioned soda fountain with great sandwiches. Like others said, the Greek House in Norman is very good.

Just to echo some others already mentioned. Meers burgers are awesome. And Bob's BBQ in Ada is a regional delight. Folger's Hamburgers are also good, right off main street in Ada just West of Mississippi and down the street from East Central University.
There is a really great Italian restaurant in downtown Ada that is very popular with the locals (forgot the name!). I've been there and the food is great. Just ask any local and they can point you in the right direction.
Although this place is no longer in existence, there was a BBQ place with a funny name two miles South of Gerty, about 30 miles North of Atoka on Hwy 75. The name? "Toots" BBQ. The building is still there but they are out of business, most likely because the owner passing on. It was in business for 35 or 40 years, sad.

Come up further north of Atoka to McAlester and Krebs. For great barbecue try THE SPEEDTRAP--yup, an old cop car lounges out front--at the east edge of Krebs on Hwy. 1. Or, LOVERA'S, which is an old Italian grocery store in Krebs, offers hard-to-beat smoked ribs for carry-out! The old established barbecue establishment in McAlester is BALL'S BARBECUE which always has some great cobbler on hand.

Best breakfast place in McAlester has to be BEVERLY'S, a small place which is a longtime favorite of truckers and locals; located next to the Best Western on the north side of Hwy 69. Ask your waitress to show you the latest quilt she's made.

If you're recruiting a doctor for the hospital or an officer for one of our top-notch local banks, you must take him or her to CHEF BILLY'S (on historic Choctaw Avenue in McAlester) which offers wonderful seafood, steaks, or even a big and spicy Billy's Burger, as well as a wine list. Chef Billy's offers a lighter lunch menu which is also good.

Everyone argues about which of the 4 Italian restaurants is best. For large groups PETE'S PLACE is the best of all Italian restaurants in Krebs and neighboring McAlester. ISLE OF CAPRI, also in Krebs, has a nice upscale atmosphere about it--a nice place to go if you're treating a couple of friends. ROSEANNA'S has more choices in its menu than the family-style plates dished up at Pete's and Isle of Capri, and is very reasonably priced. On the west side of Hwy 69 in McAlester at the Wal-Mart traffic light is GIACOMMO'S which offers a good number of choices and, if you insist on having a steak with your Italian food, is a good bet.

For your best Chinese food in McAlester I prefer HUNAN'S (great food at a great price run by some great people), next door to the Pizza Hut on Hwy 69 (south of Wal-Mart). If you prefer buffet-style Chinese food you can find that restaurant directly across the highway from Hunan's.

Hamburgers? My faves are from the grill at THE FILLING STATION at 6th and East Carl Albert where the Woodleys can fill your tank and your tummy.

And what about Mexican? The fare in McAlester keeps getting better and the competition keeps the top taco servers on their toes. Locals have always liked TACO BOB'S on South Main. I don't think Bob has any Latin ancestry but his food is excellente! Of course there's ADELITA'S which has yet to disappoint me. One Adelita's is at the SE corner of the junction of highways 69 and 1, the other is near the western end of McAlester on W. Carl Albert Parkway (Highway 1). There are other excellent Mexican eating places, too!

Let me finish my recommendations with a reasonably priced steak, salad bar, and a Bud at the down home, old WESTSIDE CAFE on Westside Road, just west of McAlester, on the south side of Hwy, and very hard to see from the highway.
