Jeon Ju Korean Restaurant
217 S. Sooner Road, Midwest City 672-4644
In business for almost a year, Jeon Ju is where memorable meals are cooked up for customers. Once you’ve tried the beef bulgogi and its bibimbap (translated, it means “mixed rice”), you are sure to tell all of your friends. This is mom’s authentic Korean cooking, with nicely blended ingredients and no American influences. There are seats for 50 people.
Woody’s Sports Bar and Grill
2501 N.E. 23rd 415-4061
Woody’s is a happening place. It didn’t take long for new customers to find it after they opened on Oct. 2. Chef Prince Mason does five variations on chicken wings. It also has a Big Woody burger and lots more, plus a full bar with live music on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The bar and grill is named after the late Elwood Fletcher, father of the co-owner, Layfette Fletcher.

Mi Pueblo Mexican Grill
7708 N.W. 23rd, Bethany 495-9977
With 20 years experience in the restaurant business between the owners, this new spot is the place to go for reasonably priced food that is freshly prepared.
Mi Pueblo has been open for just two months, but already there are menu standouts, like the tamales that are made in-house. Also worth mentioning are the chipotle fajitas and enchiladas. Mi Pueblo is a fun, festive place.
