After I finished judging the State Science Fair yesterday, I got a recommendation for this restaurant.
I got there around 1730 and the place was packed. I got a seat within a minute, and tea (muchly needed, excellent, and kept refilled) arrived a minute later. The tea was in a big glass. I had four glasses of the stuff while I was there (of course, but the time I got back to OKC 1.5 hours later, I went straight to the head!).
The place is done in a 50-60s motif, and rock and roll from the era was playing, just a touch too loud.
I ordered chips and salsa to start, as I haven’t had any good C&S in a while. This stuff was good, the chips were crispy, and the salsa was just the right temperature.
I started to order a CFS, but my server told me without asking that it was premade frozen stuff (although she said it was still pretty good). Next I ordered the New York Strip, but she told me the owner had taken it off the menu since not enough people ordered it. So… I tried for the ribeye, and… SCORE! I got it with mashed potatoes and gravy and pinto beans. It was all pretty darn good. The pintos reminded me very precisely of the pintos I get at H&R House in Oklahoma City, the taste and consistency were exactly the same, although the Blue Moon beans didn’t have salt pork in them like H&Rs. The steak was pretty good for a “cafe”. It was tender and had a lot of good flavor. In fact, it was more tasty than some of the steak I’ve had over the past couple weeks.
I got some chocolate pie for dessert. The whole meal was pretty darn good, I was impressed.
My server told me they hand breaded the chicken fried chicken, that that it was excellent. Next time…
I left at 1851 and the place was still packed. The service was great. My check was $30.35, but that of course included a dessert for me, and two mini pecan pies for my very cute and pecan-pie loving roommate. The place didn’t have wifi.
