Recommendations from a local for fun, restaurants


Must see, downtown OKC. See entry.

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

OKC is very spread out for a comparably smaller city. By population, OKC is the 39th largest city in the US. By area, it is the 3rd. Most of the city is not conducive to walking (only a small part of downtown). So a rental car or public transportation by bus is my recommendation.

Cattlemen's Steakhouse

Restaurant | "Cattleman's Steakhouse"


Cattleman's Steakhouse, located centrally in OKC, has been serving aged beef since 1910. It is a small restaurant located about four-blocks south of I-40 in what is known as "Stockyard City"—a place for farmers and cattlemen to buy supplies, apparel, food, etc.

The food is good, the service is great, and the restaurant has a relaxed and fun ambiance. Recommended more for the experience than the food.

Built very recently, it's a clean and new facility that will not disappoint.Restaurants in this area include Spaghetti Wareho...Read More
