Bite Size: 12-14-11 

Patty Wagon, owned by Bryce Musick (pictured), is up and running again in a new location at 10601 N. May. The burger truck business went down, due to new state health department regulations prohibiting a mobile food vendor from remaining in a physical spot for more than 12 hours.

“I did the renovations to my mobile trailer, which enabled me to get up and be back in business,” Musick said.

He now has an alternative space between Britton and Hefner. Musick specializes in juicy, healthy burgers. Follow Musick on Twitter at @PattywagonOKC.

Zio’s Italian Restaurant opened a Norman location in November at 1353 24th Ave. N.W. Paul Gordon is the general manager and was surprised at the buzz created by the Norman opening. Zio’s not only has its regular menu with its hot sellers such as spiced chicken Alfredo and pepperoni chicken, but also has gluten-free menu options like grilled chicken and a baked formaggio dish with a blend of four cheeses. Reach the newest Zio’s at 364-4650.

Lucille’s at Highway 77 and Main Streets in Mulhall is officially open again after a fire more than two years ago. Brothers Chris and Don Harman purchased the restaurant and finished their extensive renovations, creating jobs for 33 people.

Lucille’s specializes in chicken-fried steak, catfish, onion rings and homemade pies.

Bikers, car enthusiasts and regular joes flock to the restaurant. There are classic-car shows every Saturday night and poker runs for bikers once a month. Enjoy a biker buffet every Saturday and Sunday morning. In October, Lucille’s experienced a warm welcome with crowds of more than 1,000 stopping for the initial soft opening. They have put in seating for 170 people inside and another 170 outside.

Lucille’s is open Thursday through Sunday every week. Hours are Thursday, 4-9 p.m.; Friday 11 a.m-9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Reach Lucille’s at 405-2229.

missed a step on a ramp while handing a glass of wine to staff member
Rachel Shelton. I flipped over the wine barrel, but saved the wine and
