OKG7 restaurants to take the kids 


Hideaway Pizza

901 N. Broadway

796-7777

If you’ve never had the famous fried mushrooms ($6.95), you must start with those. They’re always served piping hot with some ranch. The pesto bruschetta ($6.95) is a delicious blend of tomatoes, onions, fresh basil and olive oil. If you mean business, attempt the Mob Boss pizza ($11.95-$20.65) with sausage, pepperoni, salami and smoked bacon. If you have room, try the frozen lemonade pie for dessert ($1.95).

Steak and Catfish Barn

305 N. Walker

601-7477

Your family can’t decide between steak, seafood and Italian? Here, you don’t have to. Start with a shrimp cocktail ($11.99) or hushpuppies ($4.99). For dinner, have a 16 ounce T-bone ($22.99), ravioli ($10.99-$13.99) or fajita salad ($10.99). Get the catfish and shrimp ($8.99-$14.99), which comes with two sides.

Meiki’s Italian American

6916 Northwest Expressway

721-5522

Try the antipasto ($5.25) or the cheese fries ($4.95) to start. The chicken club salad ($6.95) is no namby-pamby salad. It comes with bacon bits, black olives, tomatoes, hard-boiled egg, cucumbers and strips of chicken. The Meiki’s chicken pocket ($7.95) or rigatoni ($9.95), with green peppers, onions, mushrooms, sausage and pepperoni, make for flavorful and filling meals.


Louie’s Grill & Bar

9401 Lake Hefner Parkway

751-2298

Finger-food friendly
is the best way to describe most of the menu. Chips, queso and salsa
($6.99) is a generous portion and enough for three or four people. If
you upgrade to the macho chicken nachos ($8.99), just call it a meal.
The pizza ($6.99-$9.99) feeds up to three people and comes from from a
brick oven. Keep it light with the ultimate turkey burger ($7.99),
complete with chipotle ranch, veggies and cheese.

Chelino’s Mexican Restaurant

1331 Alameda, Norman

447-8050

This is the perfect
spot if half the groups wants Mexican fare and half wants some
traditional American food. Cheeseburgers ($6.99) with all the fixings
and french fries or chicken strips ($7.99) will keep one half happy.
Meanwhile, costillas de puerco ($11.99), pork ribs served in a skillet
with onions and peppers; and guiso especial ($11.99), Mexican beef tips
marinated with secret spices and topped with an egg, will keep the other
half happy.

Earl’s Rib Palace

216 Johnny Bench Drive

272-9898

Barbecue can be messy,
so it’s always great when you can indulge and not have to worry about
cleaning up the place. The Smokestack ($6.99) has chopped brisket, a hot
link and is all topped with cole slaw. It also comes with a side of
your choice. Extra hungry? Package No. 3 ($10.99) gives you a choice of
three meats from the chopped brisket, hot link, bologna, chicken,
sausage, ham, pork or turkey and three sides. Save room for cobbler or a
brownie ($3.29).

Chequers Restaurant & Pub

1009 S. Air Depot, Midwest City

736-6944

If you’re into potatoes,
you’ll love this joint. Chequers baked potato ($4.50) is loaded with
spinach dip, ham and cheese or try the best of both words: Mexi-style
baked potato ($4.50), which is basically a taco in a baked potato.
Craving something other than starches? Opt for the steak and shrimp
dinner ($8.95) or a bacon guacamole burger ($4.95-$5.95). For dessert,
split the fried ice cream ($3).
