Mystery meat

Big Truck Tacos’ 5th Amendment option changes daily, but contents remain a secret until at least the next day.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Elwell
The folks at Big Truck Tacos are savvy. One of the first real social media success stories in Oklahoma City, the restaurant has remained a fan favorite with a fun atmosphere, consistently tasty food and an air of mystery.

Letters to the Editor

Phil Bacharach
I appreciate that Chicken-Fried News is supposed to be irreverent and clever, but it should at least remain accurate. Unfortunately, the Feb. 19 brief, “Money to spend,” (Oklahoma Gazette) isn’t particularly irreverent or clever, and it’s not accurate.

Next big thing

Despite wowing her fair share of crowds, 11-year-old phenom Olivia Kay is balancing the life of a normal kid with that of a rising star.


Joshua Boydston

As far as songs go, few prove as challenging to sing as our national anthem.

It’s a technically demanding tune from first note to last, to be sure, beginning with a low bellow that quickly soars toward star-punching high notes, eventually swelling to a show-stopping crescendo that even the most seasoned performer can have trouble mastering.

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.
