OKG7 scholarly stops

Every week, we give you seven OKC-area restaurants to explore.

Jenn Scott October 2nd, 2013

Ace the meals surrounding study time. Maybe you work on campus and need a change of scenery. Here are seven off-campus eateries.


119 W. Boyd St., Norman

Are you running around campus in Norman and only have time for a quick meal? This restaurant should be at the top of your list. It’s a casual Thai house that consistently serves up tasty food. Try the red curry chicken, spicy basil noodles and, of course, the authentic-style pad thai.

Greek House

768 Jenkins Ave., Norman

Not much can top a Greek feast. Right near the University of Oklahoma campus, it’s an ideal location for students on the go or for a quick stop between classes. The Greek plate is a local favorite and comes with fries. Don’t pass up the house-made tzatziki.

Taqueria Durango

3401 SW 29thSt.

Studying for exams and need a quick bite? This southside taqueria has everything and is near Oklahoma City Community College. Order a stone bowl filled with grilled veggies, and add in some meat for protein. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the cactus.

Samurai sushi & Grill

1630 NW 23rd St.

If you’re working toward a bachelor’s at Oklahoma City University, at some point you’ll need nourishment. Samurai is the perfect stop. Try The Hulk or Pink Lady rolls. For lunch, the bento box comes with soup, a dumpling, a snow crab roll and an entree.

Mutts Amazing Hot Dogs

1400 NW 23rd St.

Sometimes school stress leads to odd cravings — like for a bacon-wrapped hot dog with chipotle ketchup, cheese, avocado and pinto beans. Stop into Mutts and order the S’noran Dog. Get a side of deviled eggs to complete the meal. Feel free to substitute a falafel for beef to keep it veggie-friendly.

Flatire Burger

318 E. Ayers St., Edmond

Flatire makes good burgers. The capable staff keeps those tables turning, pleasing Edmond students and fans at this restaurant situated on the edge of The University of Central Oklahoma campus. Even if you don’t want a whole meal, stop in and enjoy some table-made s’mores.

Hideaway Pizza

230 S. Knoblock St., Stillwater

Hideaway is more than a haven for hippies. The original location at the south end of the Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater is a popular stop for students and alumni. Chow down on pizza and perfectly cooked fried mushrooms.
