Greasy spoon greatness

Sometimes a diner is just a diner. A good ol’ hole-in-the-wall can still serve up perfect breakfasts as well as burgers.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
We have fooled ourselves, we foodie hipsters. We have bought into this idea that every hole-in-the-wall is a gem merely waiting for us to polish it. And then we can shine it in the eyes of our foodie friends and say, “Oh, you haven’t been there? I’m not surprised.”

Hearty party

Local bartenders know how to make cocktails you can sink your teeth into as the savory drink trend gives “comfort food” a whole new meaning.


Food and Drink Features

Danniel Parker
As chill factors dip below zero, drinkers traditionally gravitate toward the heavier drinks, like mulled wine, cider and nog.

American luxury

Packard’s American Kitchen showcases the art of handcrafted fare, from duck mac and cheese to juicy rib-eye hamburgers.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Winners never quit. Even if they start out by losing a bit. Packard’s New American Kitchen, 201 NW 10th St., had to endure an early losing streak. The menu seemed ambitious and different, but like so many restaurants, it took time for the food and the service to meet the high expectations of the customers.

OKG7 Eat: Best of SW 29th Street


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler

Situated in the heart of Oklahoma City’s vibrant — and, sadly, often ignored — Latino community, SW 29th Street is a mecca for diners looking for the most authentic Mexican, Central- and South-American eats. Filled with carnicerias, panaderias and taco trucks, it can be daunting to choose just one. Here is OKG7’s beginner’s guide to the multicultural variety of this historic strip.

Panaderías

It’s time to meet the donuts, or even better, the tres leches cake, at these local Mexican bakeries.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
Freshly baked pastries, breads, cakes and cookies are all woven into the fabric of daily Mexican cuisine. The beloved Mexican bakeries are frequented most often for breakfast, a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and to catch up on local news.

Let’s talk turkey

Finding turkey burgers, even in this meat-loving town, isn’t easy, but they add variety to any restaurant’s beefy menu.


Restaurant Reviews

Ken Langston
It’s no secret: Oklahoma City loves beef, and there is nothing quite like a great steak or burger. However, some people choose not to eat red meat for health or dietary reasons.

OKG7 Tasty meals under $10


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Having wasted hundreds (thousands?) of dollars on junk that’ll be replaced by the latest upgrades in a year, forced resolutions to “not eat out as much” have become something of a mantra for the budget-conscious in 2014. However, a completely filling dinner doesn’t have to empty your wallet. In fact, you can get any of these delicious dishes for one measly Alexander Hamilton.

Scratch that

Scratch Kitchen & Cocktails satisfies your itch for an innovative local niche.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
The landscape of Oklahoma City’s food culture has grown over the past decade. The days of chain eateries on every corner are becoming a thing of the past. A passion for the restaurant industry is often a life commitment (or sentence, if you like), and you will often hear a chef talk about “the moment they were hooked.”

Java update

Local start-up Mariposa Coffee is as concerned with the perfect brew as it is with the well-being of the world.


Food and Drink Features

Giancarlo Gonzalez
The first thing that hits you is the aroma of blueberries coming from the coffee cup. It is a scent unexpected. After the drink is finished and a bag of the roasted concoction is purchased for later brewing, one might wonder if it was real or a trick of the mind.

High time for Downton

Formal afternoon teas — the good, old-fashioned English way — are new again. Here’s where to find them.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
This city isn’t late to the Downton Abbey television series — or to its old-is-new-again trend of high tea. Yes, a formal afternoon tea with friends, scones, lemon curd, crumpets — the Edwardian works.

OKG7 Eat: Coffee culture


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers

Winter is perhaps the best time of year to find a great coffee shop, grab a book and settle in with a warm cup of coffee. You can always find a diner with a bottomless cup of coffee, but why not go all out and enjoy a great cup of coffee in a great space? Around the metro, there are options ranging from converted houses to ultra-sleek modern shops that all take their coffee very seriously.
