Two-carb Garage

A new burger-and-beer spot in Norman grills up something different


Restaurant Reviews

Joshua Boydston

There’s no shortage of sports bars in the football-crazed town of Norman, so why bother opening another one?

Meatball mecca

Unpretentious pastas, pizza and salads are served in an appealingly intimate dining room at Gaberino’s in Norman.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Right across the street from Norman’s Borders bookstore, Gaberino’s is a welcome addition to the side of town where choices such as the homogenized likes of Red Lobster, On The Border and Olive Garden dominate.

The Zen approach

From decor to food, Zen is a notch above the rest in area Asian dining.


Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
As a veteran restaurant reviewer, the first question I usually get asked by a new acquaintance is, “OK, so where’s the best restaurant around here?”

No bull

Get tempted by the flavors of Spain at this unique, enticing Bricktown restaurant.


Restaurant Reviews

Joshua Boydston
Bolero Spanish Grill & Tapas Bar faced many uncertainties when it opened in late 2009, and by that, I mean people uncertain of what tapas were.

Fine fare goes West

West is a sexy, sleek, up-to-the minute restaurant from brothers who are no novices to the hospitality business.


Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
When opening a restaurant, it’s all about location, location, location. The day after it opens, it’s all about people, people, people.

Summer sizzle

With every inch meticulously planned, Hensley’s is brought back to life from decades ago. It’s a win-win arrangement.


Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Since June, Hensley’s Top Shelf Grill, 1551 Garth Brooks Blvd. in Yukon, has become a magnet for beef lovers.

Bangkok by way of Roma

Traditional Thai and Italian specialties intermingle in one restaurant.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Thailand and Italy are more than 5,000 miles apart, but Jana’s Restaurant brings the cuisines of both countries together in one room.

Down-home downtown

Home cooking goes chic at Sage in Deep Deuce.


Restaurant Reviews

Joshua Boydston
For metro residents looking for the homey nature of the suburbs with the excitement of city life, there are few districts more suitable than the Deep Deuce neighborhood, which has been in the midst of a renaissance.

My Thai

Find this out-of-the-way Norman Thai spot for a lunch buffet or dinner.


Restaurant Reviews

Ryan Querbach
There are plenty of Thai food options in the metro. Some are no doubt better than others, but in Norman, one especially stands out. Thai Kumkoon, although relatively hidden in its hard-to-notice location, stands tall as a delicious option for authentic Thai food.

Silly over Philly

Steady clientele fill the unassuming neighborhood Hobby’s Hoagies for Philly cheesesteaks and pizza packed with flavor.


Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Customers, with real respect, stand in front of the open kitchen in Hobby’s Hoagies in Edmond. They watch the juggling act going on before them as the crew pumps out pizza, Reubens, hoagies and justifiably famous Philadelphia cheesesteaks. They even make their own bread.
