• Maples Barbecue

    February 4, 2019DishinandDishes

      I have chased the Maples Barbecue truck down a few times. Sometimes it’s not been where I can get to it in time and often it was sold out.  Thank goodness they now have a brick and mortar located in the Plaza District. I’m not going into the whole Franklin Barbecue speel, as I’m…

    Last Sunday Mr. Wonderful and I meandered over to the ever growing and popular Plaza District to have brunch at one of their newly opened eateries The Pritchard Wine Bar, whose name gives a nod to the renowned Pritchard Hill region of Napa, California.  Partners Aiimee Ahpeatone, Steve Mason and Jolyn Bauer colaborated on this…

    CLOSED Recently Mr. Wonderful and I took a Friday off together to do some planning for our Easter Egg Hunt for our granddaughters. I was glad to have a work day off because I’d been dying to try out the new place from one of my favorite Oklahoma Chefs – Chef Vuong Nguyen, who left…

  • Pie Junkie – Slices of Deliciousness

    June 25, 2013DishinandDishes

    I had my first divine bite of a Pie Junkie pie a year or so ago at S & B Buger Joint. At the time I described them as “sinfully delectable pies”.  I remember our group just raving about them. I mean we loved the burgers, but we went nuts over these pies.  Later on,…

  • Mama Sinmi’s Chop House – West African Cuisine

    June 17, 2013DishinandDishes

    CLOSED Friday at noon found me driving aimlessly around the Warr Acres/Bethany area in search of lunch. I wanted something different, but something reasonably healthy. I wandered in my SUV south down MacArthur Boulevard and glanced from left to right when something caught my eye. Mama Sinmi’s Chop House -West African Cuisine? What is this?…

    While we were in Estes Park for Spring break, we had to drive down the mountian one day because Mr. Wonderful had found us a Craigslist find – a car top luggage rack that would let the three kids be able to put their feet on the floor of my Mountaineer on the 11 hour…

  • Mi Lindo Mazatlan Restaurante

    March 8, 2013DishinandDishes

    A few weeks ago, I begged our friends Sandra and Noel to take us to this fantastic and authentic Mexican seafood restaurant they’d showed us pictures of on their phone – Mi Lindo Mazatlan Restaurante. You may remember Sandra and Noel from an earlier story about their addictive hotdogs and you’ll also know they are…

  • Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill

    January 22, 2013DishinandDishes

    Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill is located smack dab next door to Buffalo Wild Wings on NW Expressway. You might think that a little odd, that is, if you didn’t know that Ed Lynn owned both restaurants. The story goes that Ed visited Colorado one week on the hunt for an opportunity, dined at a Garbanzo there,…

  • Cajun King Go For the Catfish

    September 11, 2010DishinandDishes

    I have to admit to you that I am not a buffet fan. I don’t care how good the food is when it’s first cooked, sitting on a buffet for long tends to make it lose it’s pop, no matter what you do to it.  There are some things that work well with buffets, and…
