OKG7 pie dreams


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
On the television show Twin Peaks, FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper couldn’t get enough cherry pie at the Twin Peaks Double R Diner. (Don’t even get him started on the damn fine coffee around town.) He raved about the pie at every opportunity, and you too will find reasons to celebrate pie, especially during the holidays. These metro favorites surely would far exceed Agent Cooper’s insatiable lust for fantastic pie.

Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer

Craving something Mediterranean but different? Try a tagine, the iconic dish of Morocco. Pronounced “tah-ZHEEN,” it refers to both the ceramic cooking vessel and any braised stew cooked in it.

Spirited away

Chill out with tall, cool, liquored-up versions of the all-American milkshake this holiday season.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
Since the first time the term milkshake appeared in a British weekly newspaper in 1885, the drink has gone through many transformations. Initially, it was an alcoholic drink made with eggs, whiskey, milk and ice cream, resembling eggnog. By 1900, however, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry syrups were introduced, sans the whiskey, creating a more familiar version.

OKG7 chilly dogs


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
The dog days of summer have waned and baseball season now is behind us, but that doesn’t mean hot dogs get dropped from fall and winter menus. Whether you like it plain-Jane with yellow mustard or the footlong variety (snicker, snicker) adorned with everything from chili and cheese to sauerkraut and jalapeños, when your dogs are barking, there are chilly weather selections aplenty for wieners all over town.

Menu metamorphosis

A new season means new eats on your favorite local menus.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Elwell
Yes, there’s a chill in the air ... occasionally. Yes, the weather outside is frightfully pleasant ... most of the time. It’s Oklahoma. Fall means it’s not always so hot that you want to strip off your skin and let your muscles enjoy the breeze.

OKG7 vegetarian eats


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
’Tis the season to overeat, but that doesn’t mean everything has to be meat and potatoes. Several metro restaurants will more than satisfy your carnivorous cravings while also offering tasty vegetarian dishes filled with lively seasonal vegetables that are far from dry lentils and bean sprouts. Remember, being vegetarian only means meat-free, not flavor-free.

Truckin’

A family business kicks its crispy, cheesy pride to the curbs of Oklahoma City with its wood-fired pizza truck.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Elwell
It all started on a Saturday night.

Lorne and Lori Hall wanted to create a family tradition for their daughters, Elise and Molly. So on Saturday nights, Lorne made pizza and everybody would gather around the TV with a couple of slices of basil, pepperoni and sausage pie.

Balls out

Cattlemen’s Steakhouse has served a surprising Oklahoma staple for almost 100 years.


Food and Drink Features

Emily Anderson
Charles Barkley wouldn’t try them, but President George H.W. Bush would: lamb fries. Not your average American french fry.
