OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

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.

Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.

OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Ubiquitous barbecue joints are a point of state pride and, in some cases, a reason to poke fun. When comedian Jim Gaffigan visited Oklahoma last year, he commented on the sheer number of barbecue restaurants in the Sooner State. Whether it’s the rub or the sauce, pork or beef, there’s one thing we all can agree on: A full plate of smoky, sweet barbecue with all the sides is heavenly.
