4308 N. Western
If you haven’t tried them yet, get the gourmet tots — packed with cheddar, Parmesan and ham. They’re served alongside house-made ranch, and it’s only natural to grab a Sierra Nevada to wash it down.
Full Moon Sushi and Bistro
326 E. Main, Norman
One can’t go wrong with sushi, especially when it’s $2 salmon nigiri or selected rolls. Pair it with sake, of course. If you “like” Full Moon on Facebook, you’ll get frequent posts on happy hour and game-day specials.
1715 N.W. 16th
Make a meal out of the baked courgettes, slices of baked zucchini with Irish cheddar, and smoked salmon potato cake. And as long as you’re there, have a whiskey or traditional Irish beer. Who are you trying to fool? We know you came for the whiskey in the first place.
Belle Isle Restaurant & Brewery
1900 Northwest Expressway
Mondays can get really Monday-y (yes, we’re that articulate). But Belle Isle understands that, which is why it offers specials such as brick-oven pizza for $5.95. Pizza goes perfectly with beer, especially the handcrafted variety, so try the Brewer’s special.
Louie’s Grill & Bar
1389 E. 15th, Edmond
There are lots of reasons to be happy at Louie’s, but the biggest one might be $1 tacos, beef or chicken, on Tuesdays. Had a particularly trying day? Opt for a shot or cold draft.
7312 N. Western
Among the many new specials, a midday dining treat just might hit the spot. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, enjoy the Bin Burger Bar, $7 for your burg made any way you like, plus $1 sides. Take a look at the extensive wine list, too.
La Luna Cantina & Grill
2812 highway 62 Access Road, Newcastle
Indulge in the pollo verde, green chicken with fajita chicken and Poblano peppers, tomatoes, onions and cheese. For dessert, try Xango (say “chango”); deep fried cheesecake dusted with cinnamon and chocolate. Wash it all down with a margarita.
