The world is full of great steak houses. Oklahoma is no exception. As per my original goal for some of this blog is to provide reviews of dining places off the beaten path. Some famous, some not so much, but dedicated to good food. This is such a place. Located in the western industrial part of Duncan, OK and a true diamond in the rough. I really can't say how long they have been in existence, but their following is both wide spread regional and very loyal. We discovered this place when our in laws took us here 16 years ago. We have eaten here several times since. Our grandson loves it. The building is an older design in a hexagonal shape and can handle a pretty good crowd. This is always helpful. They will take reservations, but the majority of their business is 'walk in'......such is country life. This seems more of a family place and not a Steak House you would expect; the end result is the key: GOOD FOOD AT GOOD PRICES.
For us the key here has always been steak, although they do offer an excellent selection to include Chicken Fried Steak (a staple in Oklahoma), Fried Chicken Livers, Chicken Tenders, Catfish, and Fried Pork Chop among other items. Unfortunately, and perhaps amazingly, they do not offer Prime Rib or a Porterhouse Steak. Their appeal is across the menu.
The salad bar is phenomenal with a variety of fresh vegetables. This includes pea salad, cucumber salad, and all the homemade salad dressings. It also includes a 'hot bar' featuring homemade fried okra, green beans, brown beans, and a few more hot homemade choices like cabbage. There is also a baked potato bar to top off that huge tater you're gonna get with that steak. At the end of the line you're greeted with hot homemade sweet cornbread. The dessert bar is included with your meal and rotates quite a selection as well, but featured Peach Cobbler and Baked Apple Pie, both ala mode on our visit.
We arrived with our grandson on a Saturday night. This boy has a reputation for really being able to strap on the 'feed bag'. Of course what 17 year old can't? After perusing the menu, Brock sets his sights on the 16 oz T Bone, Barb chose the 8 oz KC Strip, and I couldn't resist the 16 oz Ribeye.
