OKG eat: Cool places, cooler drinks


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

We know. It’s hot. It’s summer in Oklahoma. Cool down by sampling cocktails that local bars and restaurants have concocted just for you. Find a nice, air conditioned space or a shaded patio and while away the hours drinking the flavors of summer. You might decide it’s not that bad after all.

All smiles

Try the mixed greens at George’s Happy Hog Bar-B-Q. They’re as good as the meaty main dishes. Almost.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell

George’s Happy Hog Bar-B-Q
712 CULBERTSON DRIVE
525-8111
WHAT WORKS: The mixed greens are the best. The ribs are meaty and tasty.
WHAT NEEDS WORK: The mac and cheese needs a flavor infusion.
TIP: Desserts are displayed along the line, but ask if there’s something you don’t see.

Stuffed in Oklahoma

The freshly made, new menu and management at The Miller Grill in Yukon might be too much — and that’s a delicious problem to have.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Someone with an entrepreneurial spirit might be interested in opening a small motel in the empty storefronts near The Miller Grill in Yukon, because some very happy people are going to be very sleepy.

There are a wealth of new local eateries cropping up in the metro and even more coming. If they’re not on your radar, they should be. From the comfy atmosphere at The Barrel on Western Avenue to the laid-back vibe at the Plaza District’s coffee shop, you might find a new regular hangout.

Vietnamese comfort food

Settle in for home cooking Vietnamese-style at this cozy little restaurant.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
I’ve always had a love affair with the refreshing, healthy cuisine of Vietnam. I love the fragrances, the fresh herbs, cilantro, basil, mint and other Asian herbs: perilla, Vietnamese coriander and sawtooth cilantro. And I love the contrast and balance in almost every dish: spicy vs. cool, salty vs. sweet and steamed vs. crispy.
