OKG7 eat: Fresh off the farm

There was a time not too terribly long ago in Oklahoma City when there was a chain on every corner and the closest you could get to local was to make a trip to your farmers market and make the food yourself. We always celebrate all things local, and luckily, it’s getting easier for OKC restaurants to incorporate locally grown, all- natural ingredients into what they offer.

OKG7 eat: Soccer pub crawl

Football season is finally here! We call it soccer, but that doesn’t have to stop you from indulging in two favorite European traditions: walking and pub crawling. Since the Energy FC games will be alcohol-free, we’ve created a list of pubs and taverns within walking distance from Clement E. Pribil Stadium at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School.

OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts

While the idea of fried dough may or may not be American in origin, the traditional ring-shaped confection that we know and love does originate here. According to The Smithsonian, doughnuts were created by an enterprising New England sailor’s mother who wanted a way to store and transport pastry. Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.

Ricardo’s restaurant

South-of-the-border specialties come served in very inviting surroundings.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Ricky’s Cafe is an impressive, freestanding Spanish colonial-style building in a bustling strip mall. It’s maroon and pink outside with a brick-colored tile roof. Although named “cafe,” Ricky’s is closer to being a fancy restaurant than a snack bar or coffee shop.

Bovine in the breeze

Good food and fun in an informal restaurant on OU’s south research campus.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
First, let’s get one thing straight: Cows do not fly. They don’t normally anyway, unless there’s an aircraft, high explosives or wind-assist from Mother Nature. The Flying Cow Cafe serves the impressive National Weather Center complex on the University of Oklahoma campus immediately southeast of the Lloyd Noble Center. It’s named for a memorable scene in the 1996 movie “Twister.”

Silly over Philly

Steady clientele fill the unassuming neighborhood Hobby’s Hoagies for Philly cheesesteaks and pizza packed with flavor.


Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Customers, with real respect, stand in front of the open kitchen in Hobby’s Hoagies in Edmond. They watch the juggling act going on before them as the crew pumps out pizza, Reubens, hoagies and justifiably famous Philadelphia cheesesteaks. They even make their own bread.

My Thai

Find this out-of-the-way Norman Thai spot for a lunch buffet or dinner.


Restaurant Reviews

Ryan Querbach
There are plenty of Thai food options in the metro. Some are no doubt better than others, but in Norman, one especially stands out. Thai Kumkoon, although relatively hidden in its hard-to-notice location, stands tall as a delicious option for authentic Thai food.

Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Soaking wet (What, was that rain?), we opened the door of the Chelino’s on 50th near MacArthur and were delighted to see the colorful, bright orange interior transporting us right to the heart of Mexico. Who knew Mexico was this close?

Asian persuasion

With an international presence, Golden Phoenix is an authentic Asian restaurant with no reservations.


Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Travel down Classen Boulevard toward downtown Oklahoma City, and it would be difficult to miss the Golden Phoenix, where people sink their teeth into roasted, sautéed, barbecued or glazed duck.

Raw diet

In the Raw goes for big style in Bricktown. Luckily, it has a sushi menu to back it up.


Restaurant Reviews

Joshua Boydston
There’s a lot of stock put into image with sushi joint In the Raw. From the highly marketable and perfectly suited name, to the refined-but-fun interior and the elegantly simple sashimi, it’s an attractive, stylish place.
