Green is good

Two enterprising former restaurant owners looked around Oklahoma City’s restaurant industry and thought it could be a lot greener. Chris Buerger and his partner, Brian DeShazo, took notice of the fact that there is no infrastructure to recycle in area restaurants.

OKG eat: Highfalutin dining

You don’t have to be a millionaire or a head of state to eat like one. While dining like a king every night might quickly take its toll on your pocketbook, sometimes it feels good to eat like a well-heeled big wheel. For a special occasion or maybe just as a special treat, look no farther than these upscale eateries to tempt your taste buds and delight your palate.

OKG7 eat: Fresh off the farm

There was a time not too terribly long ago in Oklahoma City when there was a chain on every corner and the closest you could get to local was to make a trip to your farmers market and make the food yourself. We always celebrate all things local, and luckily, it’s getting easier for OKC restaurants to incorporate locally grown, all- natural ingredients into what they offer.

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.

Have a Cow

A quirky Edmond eatery serves up juicy burgers with a rustic flare.

Stephanie Bice November 28th, 2012

The Cow Calf-Hay
3409 Wynn Drive, Edmond

What works:
great family-friendly atmosphere
What needs work:
more signage (It's tucked away and somewhat hard to find.)
Try the Western BBQ Burger.

Behind a strip mall, The Cow Calf- Hay is possibly one of the best hidden gems in Edmond. This family-friendly restaurant is serving up juicy Certified Angus Beef burgers, curly or sweet potato fries and signature sandwiches.

Opened in August 2011 by the same local owners of the popular sandwich shop City Bites, it’s evident from the decor that this eatery has the same quirky spirit of the Bites locations.

A life-size cow statue greets you upon entering. The worn, wood-grained restroom door is fashioned after an outhouse your great-grandma might have had on the farm.

For a juicy cheeseburger, the Classic Cow ($7.39) is the perfect choice. It’s topped with melted American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles and served with your choice of fries or thick-cut onion rings. To add a little kick, the Western Burger ($6.79) includes grilled jalapeños, melted American cheese, smoked bacon, fried onion strings and is topped with a tangy barbecue sauce. All burgers are served in old-fashioned pie tins.

Cow Calf-Hay also features signature sandwiches like the ultimate chicken sandwich ($7.59) and pork tenderloin sandwich ($6.89). Both can be ordered to include fries, rings or a combo for an additional $1.50.

The kids’ menu choices of chicken tenders, cheeseburger or grilled cheese include curly fries and a soft drink, at a bargain for under $5.

If you’re really hungry, give the Six Shooter Challenge a try. This eating contest consists of consuming six half-pound cheeseburgers topped with two pieces of cheese each, a full order of onion rings and curly fries and a slice of Cow Pie Cake.

The dessert is made of a yellow marbled cake, smothered with a light, creamy topping and covered in bananas. It comes topped with strawberry sauce.

Among other rules, the entire meal must be consumed within 45 minutes or you will forfeit the $35 required to pay in advance.

The good news: If you don’t finish, you can take the leftovers home.
