Country bar serving up famous fried chicken and fried okra. Oklahoma's oldest bar, was started as a territorial saloon in 1896 by Peter Eischen. The bar survived two lengthy closures, caused by Prohibition in the 1920s and a fire in 1993. If visiting on a weekend, expect a 2 hour wait (in addition to the 45 minute drive there and back). Kid friendly, don't let the bar part scare you off.
