Food scene

This is hands down the hottest restaurant in Oklahoma City. It has been this way for years nothing has changed 2+ hour wait every day. It's open for breakfast and lunch. You can reserve a table on yelp. Order the Carne Asada or Pollo Asada. Drink the coffee. We have their coffee beans for every guest that stays at our house.

This is one of the best diner's in Oklahoma City. I actually consider it the best diner available in our metro. Don't be surprised if you show up hungry and realize the wait is longer than expected. Locals eat here and for good reason. Full Service Bar. Bloody Mary's are fantastic.

Vast isnt the best restaurant in OKC but they have hands down the best views of Oklahoma City. And their food is seriously good ! You can reserve a private room and get front row seats to views of Oklahoma City from the tallest tower in our state. This is a must do if you are looking for a fancy dinner.

The all new renovated First National Center in Oklahoma has been completely restored and is now a must see local favorite. The restaurant is located inside of what used to be the vault of the bank. Don't miss this one.

Cattlemen's is the oldest steakhouse in our city and it is located inside of "Stockyard City" this is our cow town. There isn't a better place to experience our true history of growth for Oklahoma City. Water brought cattlemen from all over the countryside to cattle sales in Oklahoma City. This district was the beginning of our city and its a great place to experience the mid-west!

If you like BBQ this is one of the best places in OKC. Their cornbread ... WOW. Do yourself a favor and eat here. If you are a BBQ connoisseur I'm sure you will find something to pick apart but for the rest of us we can focus on picking apart their meat. This place is delicious.

This is one of the most unique restaurants in OKC Metro. It feels like your at an old ladies house and every table has a pair of reading glasses... but the food is delicious.. AND they make the best chicken pot pie ive ever eaten.. there are limited amounts of it though and it sells out quick.

This wouldnt be a top must see and experience list for OKC metro if it didnt include Ted's. So I'm just going to slip it in here. This is great local chain mexican food restaurant and if you want to impress a local just let them know you checked the box.

Well here it is folks... Eischen's has to be on the list because if you visit Oklahoma City and you are trying to check all the boxes this one is definitely on the list but its in Okarche not Oklahoma City so you will need to drive. This is a biker bar and they are renown for their Fried Chicken / Fried Okra. For those of you that check this box you understand Oklahoma City so much better now...

Big Ed was a legend in Oklahoma City. He gave us the hamburger made in the pizza pan. I still eat here and always get the chili burger. Any true traveler will check this box because of who Big Ed was for OKC and the people who are keeping his legend alive today by continuing to serve his customers.

My wife makes fun of me that I eat here. And I have to wash my beard a few times after eating here... but I love this place. I go there by myself and drink coors light and eat a giant bowl of their special mixing all the sauces and their hottest batch mixed with shrimp and sausage. It's an extra charge but I always ask for extra sauce and dont miss out on having them put corn, potaos , and boiled eggs into the batch. For those that appreciate crawfish boil this is your place and I added to the list for those that are here and need their fix.

Sightseeing

The plaza district is a must see up and coming district in Oklahoma City. It was created by new age artists and creatives that didn't fit in with the traditional art district in the Paseo Arts District. The Plaza district is best known for it's great restaurants and the Plaza Walls project that allows artists to paint an entire wall for display and enjoyment of guests of the plaza district.

The Paseo Art district is the oldest art district in our city. The type of artwork on display in the local studios here is a more traditional selection of art. This district is loaded with art and great food but parking is tough. Just come walk around and explore the Paseo. Be sure to step inside some of the local artists studios.

If you are here visiting take an uber to bricktown and spend some time walking around. It is the perfect place to explore on a beautiful day or evening with plenty to do and see. The best way to see bricktown is by renting a bicycle from spokies. They are everywhere and do yourself a favor and take 15 minutes to get yourself a bike pass / download the app / figure out how to get the bike unlocked and ride around. Its fun!

If you are looking for something adventurous to do with your family this will blow you away. Go down to the riversport district of our city and do this. Riversport Adventures is a state of the art facility that can create the most powerful rapids in the world. Don't worry though the powerful settings are only used for competitions and private trainings. Your trip will involve fun, safe rapids but it will be an experience your family or group will not forget.

This is one of the only mini golf courses left in our metro. To my knowledge its the only one. It's certainly the best location. If you want to have a drink and play a game of outdoor mini golf in a place surrounded by fun go to bricktown and visit this place when the weather is beautiful. This property includes a 3 story arcade. So im sure you will find something fun to do.
