Permanent parking, mobile food

A plan to create a permanent food truck park in Midtown passed the Downtown Design Review Committee (DDRC) on April 17. The creator, Hunter Wheat, based it on other permanent food parks around the country, including places like New York, the Dallas/Ft. Worth-area and Austin, Texas.

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.

OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts

While the idea of fried dough may or may not be American in origin, the traditional ring-shaped confection that we know and love does originate here. According to The Smithsonian, doughnuts were created by an enterprising New England sailor’s mother who wanted a way to store and transport pastry. Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.

Cowpoke paradise

Swadley’s serves top-notch barbecue in a chuck wagon-themed dining room.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Swadley’s Bar-B-Q’s original theme song plays when you open swadleys.com. Complete with manly man vocals, mustang snorting and spaghetti Western whistling, the lyrics in part tout their catering: “If there’s a crowd you need to please / We’ll grab our meat and haul our buns.”

Cafe central

Cafe Kacao is doing Central American food right with colorful cuisine and Latin flavor. Plus, you can’t beat an all-day breakfast.


Restaurant Reviews

Jenny Coon Peterson

I have a hard time saying Cafe Kacao without accenting the end like a loud, exuberant toucan. (ka-KOW!) But it somehow seems appropriate for this restaurant, which focuses on the savory, spicy flavors of Guatemala and southern Mexico.
