Never ate there. It is a relatively new restaurant right by the interstate at Guthrie, Oklahoma.
Favorite Dish: Here are some offerings from the menu as of June 2009:
Georgia pulled pork sandwich.....$5.95
Five Rib dinner....$12.95
Oklahoma Brisket sandwich.....$5.95
Smoked Chicken Dinner.....$7.95
Never ate there. They were just finishing the building of this new restaurant in the spring of 2009. It looked like they were setting up a small salad bar, and their menu includes pizza, pastas, etc.
It it right by the Guthrie exit on I-35.
We did make a point to take a break and have some ice cream and pie at this delightful place. I could not remember what it was called at the time, but I remember the rustic atmosphere and the wonderful murals. My friends enjoyed their icecream, while I had the traditional apple pie and coffee. We sat here and chit chatted away all awhile being made welcome and never hurried. Lots of wonderful smells was coming from the kitchen and the folks hear were so friendly:-)

This restaurant has occupied these quarters since 1987. Always busy, offering mainly American dishes and so-called "country dinners," the Stables Cafe is likely the choice for the choosiest diners in town.
Favorite Dish: This is one of only a few places in Guthrie where you can get a rib-eye, the highest priced item on the menu at $14.95 (14 oz). On the menu it's called "the Tallman" (remember the wagon in the Territorial Museum?)
Like all the other buildings in Guthrie, this was formerly a much different kind of building (I'll try not to mix the two to keep your appetites up). It's long and narrow, full of tables, where incoming guests are quickly seated, asked what they want to drink, and then shown the buffet. I've never been to a Chinese restaurant that operated any differently.
Favorite Dish: The general chicken and rice is always a favorite with me, but I like the dumplings and the four-season beans. Sadly, this particular Hunan didn't have four-season beans, so I substituted shameless portions of sweet and sour pork.
Do not let the extremely modest outside appearance guide you away from this eclectic dining establishment. Guthrie has steakhouses and burger joints like any other town, but according to local lore, this is in a class by itself.
