Oklahoma City is full of amazing places to grab a bite. The growth of the downtown dining scene has been extensive, with more and more restaurants producing high-quality food. If you’re new to the city, great: we’ve got a list of spots you need to try below. If you’re a seasoned veteran when it comes to OKC’s food scene, there are still a couple of spots on this list you probably haven’t tried. Visit as soon as possible.
6. The Mule
The Mule does sandwiches, and they do them right. Open late with plenty of excellent beer options to match their food selection, you can’t go wrong. Don’t believe us? Just take a gander at the ingredients in the Macaroni Pony:
Jalapeño Cornbread, Chipotle BBQ Pulled Pork, 3 Cheese Mac and Cheese, Pickle.
We’re drooling on the keyboard. Here’s a look at one of their weekly specials:
You can find me in da club! This bad boy will be our sandwich special this week, we’re talkin ham, turkey, tomato, bacon, red onion, pepperoncino cheese, cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, and a spring mix tossed in a sriracha ranch.. What makes it beautiful? 3 pieces of bread and those fancy frilly toothpicks… Because a club without frilly toothpicks is just a turkey sandwich.. Pint night tonight is a @shinerbeer ruby red bird shandy with absolut citron… 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻
5. Abel’s Mexican Restaurant
Delicious, authentic, and super affordable. Abel’s is a great choice when you’re looking for some Mexican fare in Oklahoma City. The soft steak taco plate is a not to be missed.

4. Tucker’s Onion Burgers
They’re big. They’re messy. And they well worth the food coma you’ll be in after you’re finished. Tucker’s Onion Burgers is making delicious onion burgers from premium, local ingredients. Stop by with an empty stomach.
3. Gabriella’s Italian Grill
Family owned and operated, Gabriella’s is an unbelievable find for Italian food fans. Their pizza is out of this world, but if you really want to live a little we’ve got five words for you: Lobster spaghetti with snow crab. Pictured below.

2. Fassler Hall
All of the sausages at Fassler Hall are amazing – that’s why we recommend trying their Sausage Sampler – served plain with a side of mustard and sauerkraut. They also have a great brunch on weekends from 11am-3pm, and of course plenty of beer options.
1. Nic’s Grill
Our favorite spot in Oklahoma City? Glad you asked. Nic’s Grill piles on the fries and makes sure the cheese as thick, but don’t be mistaken – nothing takes away from the burger itself. A small restaurant with big flavor, Nic’s is a must visit in OKC.
