Beer and wine

“Drink pink” is the rallying cry of spring for many wine lovers. The big reds of the fall and winter are retired in favor of lighterbodied wines for warmer weather, and the more patio-friendly the better. While white wines, especially sweeter ones, dominate the spring and summer, many wine lovers still prefer dry, red wines.

Drinking al fresco

One of the first signs of spring every year is the increase in drinkers and diners spending beautiful afternoons and evenings on metro restaurant patios. As the number of restaurants in the metro continues to grow, so do the number of patio options, but very few provide spectacular views of the city while you enjoy your spring cocktails. Here are three hot spots worth visiting for more than just food and drinks.

OKG7 eat: Soccer pub crawl

Football season is finally here! We call it soccer, but that doesn’t have to stop you from indulging in two favorite European traditions: walking and pub crawling. Since the Energy FC games will be alcohol-free, we’ve created a list of pubs and taverns within walking distance from Clement E. Pribil Stadium at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School.

OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts

While the idea of fried dough may or may not be American in origin, the traditional ring-shaped confection that we know and love does originate here. According to The Smithsonian, doughnuts were created by an enterprising New England sailor’s mother who wanted a way to store and transport pastry. Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.

OKG7 eat: BBQ for me and you

Ubiquitous barbecue joints are a point of state pride and, in some cases, a reason to poke fun. When comedian Jim Gaffigan visited Oklahoma last year, he commented on the sheer number of barbecue restaurants in the Sooner State. Whether it’s the rub or the sauce, pork or beef, there’s one thing we all can agree on: A full plate of smoky, sweet barbecue with all the sides is heavenly.

The Stuffed Olive


A south OKC sandwich shop serves up delicious and fresh options for those wanting to stay local.

Joshua Boydston January 18th, 2012

Oklahoma City and the surrounding metro are replete with many a chain deli restaurant, but none of those places do it quite like The Stuffed Olive.


“We have a lot of regulars who get the same thing every time,” Durow said. “Some of them come in for dinner multiple times a week and just order whatever special we have that night.”

Those dinner specials — rib-eye steaks, lasagna, Alfredo pasta and pork tenderloin can pop up on any given night — are starting to gain a following of their own. They are sold until gone, and being that there is no full dinner menu (other than the sandwiches, soups and salads), they can go fast.

The homemade food is just a little better than what you can find at home and pairs well with the cozy, modest atmosphere that nods to bistro ambience: open, airy and nearly always filled with lively, talkative guests.

All in all, The Stuffed Olive seems to be successful in its endeavor to make food that makes one feel right at home.

“There aren’t many strangers in here.

People see their neighbors,” Durow said. “We have a lot of customers, but they all seem to be close-knit. It’s a good community over here.”

Oklahoma Gazette’s restaurant review policy is to highlight the positive aspects, and include constructive criticism regarding food, ambience or service when appropriate.
