While the steaks are robust in Oklahoma City, the beers unfortunately are not.
For reasons unknownst to me, it seems the only beer available is watered down 3.2 beer. This can make it somewhat challenging to find a proper beverage to wash that 40 oz porterhouse down with. (and also necessitate more than a couple visits to the rest room)
When I am in Oklahoma City I...
When I am in Oklahoma City I usually only stay long enough for a bite to eat and stretch my legs before going on to visit family in Texas. Every time I see this water park near I-40 or Frontier City near I-35 the kid inside of me wishes I was staying longer. One day soon I am going to make a special trip just to stay in Oklahoma City again. Haven't done that in a while and it is a great city.
Best Food Around
The Cheesecake Factory encompasses it all. It has a fun atmosphere, great bar, chic style, nice waiters, great food, and even better dessert. When you hear the name Cheesecake Factory you may think it's only dessert. Oh my goodness, do not make that mistake! The food is absolutely wonderful. The 27 page menu offers variety upon variety. Anything you want is here. Any type of food is available.
And, yes, you have to have some cheesecake. I believe they have over 50 types of cheesecakes with other desserts including cakes and pies.
Not in the mood to sit in a nice dining area? Take some to go! You can order any of the food and dessert to go if you would rather relax in your room.
Do not miss this place! It's a great date place, as well, if you want a special evening.
Monday - Thursday 11:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Friday & Saturday 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 a.m.
Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Picture coming soon... The best appetizer is the avacado eggrolls. I would either order these as a meal, though, or share them with others.
My favorite entree is the spicy chicken nachos (which is actually under the 5 page appetizer menu).
All the cheesecakes are unbelievable!
If you want to order drinks I enjoyed the Mai Tai, and the Godiva Chocolate Martini is strong!
Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World
I can't tell you how much I got a giggle out of this place because of the shere size of this place. Over 110,000 Sq Ft. of nothing but outdoor equipment you can buy to fit just about anything your going to take on in the sports world.....wow! It had lots of wonderful displays, a little arcade, firing range for guns and bow & arrows and so much more.....wow again! One thing that will always stand out in my mind and heart is my friends saying, "Where else can you take your prom dates too!" It must had been prom night because so many young couples roaming around in the store that night......lol!
With the coming of twilight, the perspectives at the Oklahoma City National Memorial change significantly. By day, the monument is a sober reminder of a terrible event in our history. By night, the memorial is a beautiful place.
