Leo's BBQ is a favorite in Oklahoma City for authentic barbequed meats. Having been featured on The Food Network, the secret is out but the food is still just as good. Leo's hickory smokes all its meats to tender perfection and they have two different sauces to choose from, a sort of sweet Carolina-style sauce and a spicy bbq sauce. Leo's also has a basic selection of traditional bbq sides. Don't forget to save room for the surprise specialty- the cake!
Absolutely the best chicken-fried steak you will ever taste can be found at a little out-of-the-way fast-food restaurant on 10th Street. They have other things on the menu, including fried chicken and burgers, but people go there for the chicken-fried steak. This restaurant has been under the same ownership since it opened in the late 1970s, and except for a new coat of paint now and then, it has not changed much. You will especially love the original wood paneling. You can get a sandwich with fries or a dinner, both with a drink, for less than $10.
This is one of the most trendy places to eat in the Nichols Hills area; so if you go at lunchtime, either get there early or expect to wait awhile. The ambiance in the restaurant is no-frills, nostalgia with hubcaps, 50's placards and Elvis memorabilia on the walls. Try the popular 'Smokestack', a monstrous sandwich of chopped beef, a hot link and coleslaw. The half-pound burgers are almost as popular as the barbecue of which there is a large selection, including ribs, brisket and more.
Oklahoma takes chicken-fried steak very seriously. It has even been named the official state meal, and you will know why after eating at this restaurant. Located on busy 39th Expressway, this restaurant stands out. Just look for the shocking-pink vintage car sitting out front. The "golden years" decor makes you feel like getting out that long-forgotten poodle skirt or letter jacket. The menu, as you can probably guess, consists of hearty home cooking. Ordering is simple; just fill up on a famous chicken-fried steak dinner with a heaping serving of sides.
