AB Road Eats: Oklahoma City


Coffee Slingers: We arrived in OKC early, so I decided to take a walk. I found this place along the way … and that’s how my day started.

Elemental Coffee: And because you know now that I never just have one cup … I ordered an iced latte and it was fantastic. So good I didn’t even snap a photo (went down that fast).


Kitchen No. 324: Coffee was quickly followed by breakfast. I really enjoyed the space (open, white and bright). I highly suggest you order the green eggs and ham.


Tucker’s Onion Burgers: If I lived in OKC, I would have their onion burger once a month. At least.


The Mule: How do you follow up an onion burger? Grilled cheese, of course (with a side of tomato soup).

    What they said about stopping at Francis Tuttle! It’s not just a great culinary school full of eager students, it’s OKC’s beacon of hope! Vocational training for high school students is what our country needs and they are doing it right! Mike Rowe would want Altona to visit. Just sayin’ 🙂

    “Off The Hook Seafood & More”
    125 W Britton Rd, Oklahoma City, OK 73114
    Is a must-try. Everything is delicious there, a couple of my favorites are the Smothers Seafood fries and the Jumbo Fish, Shrimp and grits. I’m so addicted. Oh! Excuse me that’s “SO HOOKED”.
    Mr. Alton Brown, I left you the address so you won’t get steered, in the wrong direction. #GETHOOKED

    There are a lot of good places to eat in okc. I could give you a big list that would blow your mind but my favorite place to go is “off the hook” ! Everyone knows about this place and every weekend you will get a amazing special created by the chef something different every weekend trust me on this

  19. 77

    Better get your tail over to #OFFTHEHOOK! and catch you a real addition to some amazing food! Made and owned by some of Oklahoma’s finest!

  20. 80

    You really need to try Off The Hook. I’m definitely not a seafood lover, but I love this place. Sometimes I will drive through at lunch and just get greens and grits or even some Mac and cheese. Chicken salad is seasonal, but is out of this world good. The absolute best for seafood haters however is the Flying Pig, if I wouldn’t resemble the namesake I’d eat that every day with their house chips!

    Off the Hook Seafood is one of the Best Seafood Places in OKC for Fast Food. People are friendly and welcoming. Food is always outstanding, the Chef is never afraid to try something new for the Daily Special. He always gets the word out in plenty of time to make your lunch plans for the day. This has got to be one of your Stops in OKC.

  31. 119

    Try Mama E’s Soul Food Restaurant and Leo’s Barbecue they are down the street from each other and both have been featured on The Foodnetwork Triple D’s

  32. 124
    Julia Assef

    Republic Gastropub- the Jalapeno Glazed Salmon is amazing, Irma’s Burger Shack, Cheevers Chicken Strudel Appetizer, Golden Phoenix (Asian District) the 12 course beef menu is pretty great, Packards (all the menu is awesome and interesting)

  33. 125
    Fernando Sarmiento

    Half-Time Sports Bar and grill! Ask for Aldo and he will recommend you what to get. Hole in one burger is amazing, Okidelphia sandwich is definitely a must, a the fried chicken is everyone’s favorite. Ask to try their jalapeño ranch made from scratch, goes great with their fried mushrooms and fried green beans.

  34. 130

    You absolutely have to go to Urban Teahouse. The owner is one of the most knowledgeable when it comes to brewing tea in OKC and probably just oklahoma in general. There’s over a hundred options!!

  35. 131

    Your old fashion fried onion cheesburger, with some homemade chili at Ron’s Hamburgers in Midwest City!! Portions are as big as your appetite, and all of the food is definitely worth trying! Friendly faces, and amazing food!!!

  36. 132

    Irmas burger shack, S&B Burger Joint, or Nic Grill if you get in for lunch. Cattlemens is the place to go for steak. Mcnellie’s pub for good Ruben Sandwich with mushroom gravy mash potato. Drink a pint or two. Then cross the street for some rum raisin ice cream.

  37. 134

    In Oklahoma steak is a must…
    For steak, Cattleman’s is the real deal…
    Just ask Guy…maybe you can even do what Guy couldn’t…try tge calf brains.

    Chae has some AMAZING mondern takes on traditional Korean fare. Cuppies and Joe has a bomb cappuccino and the salted caramel cupcake is a must. Chick-n-Beer for your post show wings and adult beverage is recommended as well. Good luck!

    Shelby pearson

    Kongs tavern is my recommendation for an amazing and unique experience!!! Fun but also extremely delicious food and the adult milkshakes you won’t find anywhere else!!!

  40. 137

    You have to please go to cafe kacao!!! Try the most amazing pancakes they do everything fresh by order and they also have amazing coffe their menu is different and unique! You won’t have their breakfast menu anywhere! It’s a Latin breakfast spot with South America flavors and they are located in the Asian district! Now just go go go!

  41. 141

    I’d also recommend Hatch for breakfast. Cuppies and Joe for coffee (maybe a cupcake too if you’re in for a snack). Cheevers is a must for really anything on the menu, but they are known for their jalepeno gravy on their chicken fried steak. Iron Star BBQ is also great. All these were mentioned above, I’m just agreeing. Although I believe that Hatch, Cheevers, and Iton Star are all part of the same restaurant group. Their first restaurant was Cheevers.

  42. 142

    Waffle champion! Best place EVER! I have never been on a day where the line wasn’t wrapped around the building and into the street! For dinner try Signature Grill in Edmond. Only about 10-14 tables, so you have to make a reservation. I also LOVE Pizzaria gusto! You must try the EVOO salted vanilla gelato!

  43. 143

    You should try Fung’s Kitchen for some REALLY GOOD Chinese food! Totally go on the weekends bc that’s when they served DIM SUM.

  44. 145
    Skip Lamb

    Kong’s Tavern all day! Amazing Burgers, Bombritos, Bibimbap and alcoholic milk shakes with a mountain of sweets as a garnish that will blow you away! Fun atmosphere as well.

  45. 148

    Try a brown butter donut from Belle Kitchen (the hibiscus iced donut is great too).
    A smoked tongue taco from Big Truck Taco for lunch. Cheever’s jalapeño gravy on the chicken fried steak is fantastic and would be great for lunch or dinner. And Ludivine is doing some amazing things with fresh local ingredients and would be a great dinner choice.

  46. 150

    You did well for yourself last time around. Those are 3 of our personal go to places. Hopefully you tried the Okie Poutine at The Mule, otherwise you need to go back and give that a try!

    I second the above post recommending Hatch for breakfast/brunch/lunch…they have a legitimate coffee bar as well. Waffle Champion is another breakfast place that stands out.

    Cafe Evoke is a great choice for a brew, and there’s also Cuppies and Joe for a coffee and sweet tooth combo.

    If you want a taste of Oklahoma BBQ, you’ll want to try Iron Starr, Back Door BBQ, or Earls Rib Palace. They are all Oklahoma originals.

    Cafe Kacao is great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a South American Latin flair. They too have true baristas to supplement your dining choices.

    Big Truck Tacos puts a gourmet spin on burritos and tacos. Their “Brunchish” specials are always a treat. You can also ask for the “5th Ammendment”…it’s different every day and you can’t find out specifically what you ate until they post the dish ingredients the next day to Instagram and FB.

    For another Oklahoma original burger, you can try Irma’s Burger Shack and eat their “No Name” burger.

    If your crew is craving pizza; Empire Slice House, Hideaway Pizza, and Upper Crust all produce fine pies.

    The Sushi Bar is hands down the best sushi you will fine in OK. I know you don’t really associate Oklahoma with great sushi, but wholly moly it’s so good!

    We are going to be at your show and should you need a host for any of your eating adventures throughout the day or 2 you are here, I happily volunteer to serve in this capacity!

    KONG ‘S TAVERN is a must! Alcoholic milkshakes, Wagyu burgers, kimchi fries, Kong’s Chicken– not to mention an amazing atmosphere. Coming from someone who’s been wined and dined after living in five countries the past five years, you won’t be disappointed.

  50. 155

    You can not go wrong going to La Baguette Bistro for any meal. I won’t lie though their bakery is the best I have found. For lunch go talk to the guys at Kamps Meat Market. For dinner Wilshire Cafe just yum! Their steaks really need to stay a secret.

  51. 156

    Try Hatch for breakfast/brunch/ lunch. Its fantastic. Lunch or dinner would be fun at Slaughters hall for you. Great food and amazing drinks. If you’re feeling more exotic, try Sheesh Mahal on may. AMAZING butter chicken with rice and garlic naan. I like the mango lessi there as well. I hope I’ve been helpful. I’m an OKC native, foodie, and chef. Love what you do and teach!

    Just have to go to OKC to try a “Cheesy Mother Tucker” with bacon, lettuce, tomato and jalapeno and ask for pickles on the side or I’ll be dreaming of it forever.
