Wake n’ Steak

On the way back through Oklahoma City on Sunday morning, we stopped for a late breakfast at the widely renowned Cattleman’s Steakhouse.With a name like Cattleman’s and a history dating back to 1910, the wheel on the Jetta instinctively started jerking strongly in the direction of the Oklahoma legend.And, naturally we obliged for a visit.

 

 

The breakfast is, as one would expect, traditional and straightforward.There is nothing too noteworthy to report here, other than the fact that Cattlemans offers about a dozen different steaks on their breakfast menu for you to crack a few eggs over.Were it later in the day I may have opted for the “Presidential T-Bone”, instead I settled on the more manageable breakfast steak and my coronary arteries thanked me.

 


The inside of Cattleman’s tells a long and storied tradition about the heart of the Oklahoma City stockyards, and you would be well received in the dusky comfort of dark wood paneling and plush red booths.

King of the Road

In a food world increasingly proliferated by an onslaught of posh “gourmet” takes on the hamburger, there is something gratifying about the honest simplicity of the burgers at Hamburger King.If you’re looking for pretension in your burger, keep on driving because, refreshingly, you won’t find it here.Just uncomplicated ground beef patties, cheese, bacon, some lettuce, tomato and a couple of condiments assembled in the same fashion they have since 1927.

 

 


A burger diner eighty years ago, and a burger diner today, this place has endured for the hungry rancher or the ferreting nostalgist alike.Not much else has changed at Hamburger King in that time, and gladly one of the remnants of days gone by is the unique phone ordering system still in place.After glancing at the basic menu, you pick up the solitary red telephone at your booth and phone in your order like a cold war president ordering up a steaming hot plate of nuclear air strike.

 

 

Five minutes later your order arrives along with your check.No flagging down a chatty waitress here.Quick, tasty and efficient…..the way it should be.
Any restaurant that’s been flipping burgers for over 82 years and serving them up at an honest price is clearly doing something right, and Hamburger King would be well worth a visit on your next pass through central Oklahoma.

Ride ’em Cowboys!

This weekend brings us to the great state of Oklahoma!Home to Garth Brooks, tornadoes, The Cowboy Hall of Fame, the worlds’ first parking meter and birthplace of the shopping cart.
As if that distinguished list of accolades weren’t enough to impress you, there is also a little Big 12 school up in Stillwater called Oklahoma State (not to be confused with that other directional school in Norman), where they happen to play an electrifying brand of gun slinging football.

They also happen to have a rather electrifying coach who is no stranger to the art of the press conference rant, and could be considered an aspiring heir to the venerable Bobby Knight throne.

This weekend pits another matchup of two national powerhouses as the 4-1 Oklahoma State Cowboys (#16) shoot it out against the 4-1 Missouri Tigers (UR).

Campus should be buzzing around OSU this weekend given that it’s homecoming, and the ‘Pokes lay claim to one of the largest homecoming reunions in the country.Why anyone would be so eager to make an annual pilgrimage to Stillwater, Oklahoma is debatable, but judging by the throngs of orange clad Cowboy faithful this is a passionate college sports town.

The Cowboys don’t square off against Missouri until 8:15pm, which gives us ample time this week to enjoy the robust tailgating atmosphere on campus and perhaps squeeze in a cocktail or two before kickoff. Many of these plans come courtesy of our friend Laura, a diehard alum, who has promised she will dive headfirst into “Orange Pond” if the ‘Pokes can pull out a victory.

Game tickets, for those of you less inclined to haggle, are still available through the OSU box office.

In addition to the campus tailgating revelry, which I can tell you first hand is quite robust; there are a handful of other drop-ins worthy of merit for this weeks foray into the wide plains of the SoonerState.

Eskimo Joe’s – is a Stillwater institution, and claims to have the #2 most collected t-shirt in the world (behind Hard Rock Cafe’).It’s also been ranked the #3 college sports bar in the US and given their infamous “thirsty Thursday” promotion of five bucks for all you can drink beer, I don’t think we will have any problems cutting loose in this joint on Saturday.

And for the first time during the CFB, I am torn between roadside cuisine choices, both of which are found in Shawnee, Oklahoma. On one side we have a place with the words “Pig Stand” in the name, and on the other is “Hamburger King”.My head might explode with anticipation.

Well I’d say that’s a pretty full agenda, and I personally am looking forward to my return trip to Stillwater to see what other adventures we can stumble upon this time.

Saddle up and come with!
