Vamonos Mexican Grill
125 W. Britton Road, Nichols Hills
Start with queso ($2.99) and a spiced shrimp salad ($7.99). Signature tacos ($2.59-$3.49) range from Korean rib-eye to carnitas, a milk-roasted pork. Get the nacho bowl ($6.39) for a little taste of everything on the menu.
The Greek Taverna
122 N. Broadway, Moore
Open since May, this tavern is a self-proclaimed touch of Greece. The Mendros family serves authentic Greek fare like a gyro sandwich ($5.99) or a souvlaki special ($7.49), a skewer of meat and veggies. Get a side of hummus and pita ($2.49); for dessert, try baklava ($1.99) or loukoumades, syrup-soaked fried dough ($1.50).
Gabriella’s Italian Grill & Pizzeria
1226 N.E. 63rd
Probably the only thing that could be better than lemon aioli is when you dip crispy asparagus ($14) in it. You can’t miss the brick oven-baked pepperoni and arugula flat bread ($13) or barbecue chicken pizza ($17). From the grill, try the jalapeño-garlic tilapia ($15) or ribeye Fiorentina ($45).
Club One 15
115 E. Sheridan
Is it a club or a restaurant? Well, it’s both! Serving dinner and late dinner, enjoy things like a cheese and sausage plate ($6.99) or a mini fajita party ($7.99). The Bricktown wedge ($8.99) comes with Gorgonzola, bacon, green olives and grape tomatoes and the crab-stuffed halibut ($22.79) is braised and smothered in a house-made thermidor sauce.
Okie’s Chicken & Grill
2631 S.W. 29th
It might be called Okie’s Chicken, but the specialty is fried catfish ($2.09- $7.49). The menu is varied: bean burritos ($.99) to bacon cheeseburgers ($3.29). Get some potato salad ($1.59) and wedges ($.99 for four) to go with your meal. If you’re dining in, wash it all down with a cold beer ($1.50-$2.50).
Sebby’s Pizza Kitchen
205 Meline Drive, Edmond
Whether dine-in, drive-thru or delivery, this pizza kitchen offers a 16-inch pie with up to five toppings for $13.99. Get the salami and peppers ($9.99) or hamburger and olives ($9.99). Not in the mood for pizza? Try the No. 14 sub ($5.50), which comes with smoked ham and bacon, or the No. 7 sub ($5.50) with cheese and avocado.
Hummus Mediterranean Cafe
811 S.W. 19th, Moore
It should be obvious, but if not: try the hummus ($4-$6), which comes in eight flavors. Made fresh daily, it won’t disappoint. Enjoy an authentic kebab ($12- $16). If you’re lugging the kiddos and they don’t want Mediterranean, opt for the mac ’n’ cheese ($4).
