Howard, Yes the Root Beer stand was Weber's. Is that their only location. Don't have a real clear memory, but taste was not as good as at Coits.

Like I said, I have been to Oklahoma only once, but with my copy of Roadfood in hand, my first stop after flying in was at Murphy's up in Bartlesville for some kind of garbage plate, chopped up hamburger, onions and potatoes piled high on a plate and covered with gravy. Anyone else been to Murphy's. Is it still there?

    Weber's now has 3 locations in Tulsa but the original on Peoria is housed in a hideous bright orange building and is the one.

    I ate at Murphy's about 2 years ago and, as far as I know, it is still there today. The dish you describe is Murphy's claim to fame, simply known as the Hot Hamburger Platter.

            Thanks, tiki, and a belated congratulations on your recent 1,000th post!! I messed-up, however. My post (re. Green Monster seats) was supposed to go on wanderingjew's baseball park thread: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3146 . I've since moved it but thank you for the Red Sox Nation encouragement.

                Oh man you people are making me hungry.

                I will have to agree that if you are a 50s fan Metro Diner in Tulsa is the place to go. The waitresses used to wear the Poodle skirts however in the last couple of years they have gone by the wayside. The food there is great and the chocolate shakes are incredible.

                Mario's Pizza is the only place in Tulsa that I know that makes real pizza just like the way I used to get it back east. (I am originally from PA)

                As for Muskogee eats try Speedway Grill at 2010 W Okmulgee. Prices are reasonable and they have a 50/50 beef/sausage burger that is awesome especially with the cheese, green pepper and onions.

                  Welcome!

                  Is Slick's BBQ still open in Muskogee? I believe I heard that Slick had retired/died fairly recently.

                      Thanks for the sad info. In its day, Slick's was a great place. Although my wife loves to point out that cleanliness-wise it was the most disgusting restaurant she ever ate at, she has to admit they served some of the best brisket and sweet potato pie ever. We used to stop there on our way to Muskogee's beautiful Azalea Festival in Honor Heights Park.

                        Howard--next time though Muskogee,try Smokehouse Bobs on 11th street---just south of the Shawnee bypass(and the new super walmart)--its excellent, and the mrs. makes a KILLER sweet potato pie---and it clean too! Theres also a great little ---very quiet--but very good soulfood place on Shawnee-Stewarts Diner---olny openb from noon to 5 and the most expensive meal in the place is less then $5!! Several plate at 3.95!----and you should also try to check out Honor Heights at Christmas---its fabulous---millions of lights---they actually try to recreate the azaleas in lights----a wonderful delight---and while your there stop in at the Five Civilized Tribes Museum at the top of the Hill and say hi to Janie---my wife!

                            Here are some Oklahoma City places I enjoy:

                            Oklahoma County Line-1226 NE 63rd Street (take the Kelly Avenue exit off I-44, north on Kelly to 63rd, then east on 63rd -- restaurant is on your right). Great barbecue -- I enjoy the coleslaw which comes with your meal. They start you off with a small loaf of homemade bread. Not far from the Cowboy Hall of Fame.

                            Bricktown Brewery-1 N. Oklahoma Ave. in historic Bricktown. Excellent beer (they have beer samplers), big portions.

                            Lido, 2518 North Military Avenue, Suite 101 in a little strip mall off NW 23rd Street (in the Little Saigon area). Take Classen north off 23rd, and it will be on your right about one block off 23rd. It's a bit hidden, but well worth the effort. Great Vietnamese food at a reasonable price. My mother raved about this place!

                            Pearl's Oyster Bar -- I've been to the location at 928 NW 63rd. Good Cajun-style seafood.

                                  In 1993 I had a blowout in my car near Wagner, OK, and I was treated with extraordinary kindness and respect. I found Oklahomans just as nice this July, and I just can't help feeling I'm OK when I'm in OK.

                                  My route changed so I didn't pass near you, Tiki, or you would have heard from me with your earlier suggestion of JR's in Eufala.

                                  OK, now, an off-topic question: Is everyone else having trouble getting onto "The Oklahoman's" website? I email them to report the trouble, but no response. Suggestions?

                                      I access it every day and haven't had any trouble. It might be a little slower these days, but what isn't?

                                          BTW, my favorite photo of Boston great Carlton Fisk
                                          from a 1999 Red Sox - Yankees match-up at Fenway Park.



                                          I can't put my finger on it but I believe that Ol' "Pudge"
                                          had a message for the Bronx Bombs that day.

                                              LOL!!! As I'm waiting for the page to load I looked down at the progress bar and saw an image named "jetersad.jpg" load. HAHAHAHA... funny stuff.

                                              My take is that if one of the Sox had done the same thing as A-Rod they would've attributed it to gritty, hard-nosed baseball. Because he's an overpaid pretty boy (and it WAS a rather girly slap) everybody in Red Sox Nation has a beef with it.

                                              Man, I just wish you Sox fans would have some passion.

                                                Lived in OKC for about 2 years, from 1996 to 1998, so unless noted Im not sure these places are even still there, but if they are, they are definitely worth the visit!
                                                 
                                                Several of the places I remember that I loved to eat at are (of course!) Coits Rootbeer Stand. LOVED that place:  the food, the atmosphere, and best of all, the ROOT BEER!
                                                 
                                                Charcoal Oven on NW Highway, just west of MacArthur, and What-a-burger just a bit south, by what used to be an Albertson's grocery store, but was a Homeland (I think) when I was last there in 2007. Both a bit slow, but they do cook your food to order, and it was worth the wait. Be patient!
                                                 
                                                Jimmys Egg. I admit, most people seem to roll out of bed and head straight to Jimmys Egg, but that doesnt mean Jimmy's food isnt any good. Just be a little choosy about where you situate yourself in the dining area and you'll be ok.
                                                 
                                                A Mexican restaurant (Pablos?) ? that as of 2007 was no longer there, but was in the shopping center where the smaller (one door) Walmart used to be (in 2007 was a Chuck-E-Cheese's type of place), on NW Highway, just east of MacArthur. I think they had an All-You-Can-Eat buffet. When you wanted to get the attention of your server, you would raise a little flag on your table, and the server would quickly appear to take care of whatever request you had. My family and I were regulars there before we moved out of state (**sigh**).
                                                 
                                                A 'fried pies' place, just down the street and across from a Catfish restaurant (Catfish Hut maybe?), I think it was on 63rd street, down from the library. With some more research, I could locate the place because I do remember it fairly vividly, at least where it used to be, but I hope this comment will suffice in allowing someone else's memory to kick in and remember, particularly if its not there anymore. If youre really interested, let me know and I can work on locating it if its still there. Or where it once was. You know how times change...
                                                 
                                                And if you like whole pies, there's Pioneer Pies farther up NW Highway. They have a restaurant, which is good, but they have many varieties of pie. PIE! Who doesn't love pie?! And you can order online, at least at one time you could...
                                                 
                                                And even though they're franchise/corporate places, I LOVED Braum's and Sonic!!! There is a Sonic and Braums about every 4 blocks in OKC..
                                                 
                                                Oh, OKC, How I miss you!
                                                Why did I ever leave that Foodie Paradise...?! Dallas has NOTHING on YOU!

                                                  Welcome to the site, sylvan_tree.
                                                  I'll give you a bit of an update:
                                                  Coit's is still operating but I've heard the quality has gone downhill the last few years.
                                                  Charcoal Oven is still there and is as great as ever. I love their mushroom swiss burger and onion rings!
                                                  Jimmy's Egg is also still going strong. Some locations are better that others (avoid the one at Hefner and Penn: yuck!).
                                                  I think you are referring to Pancho's Mexican Buffet which is a chain. There is still a location on the southside of OKC. Never been to one.
                                                  The "fried-pie place" is  Fulton's on NW 50th and Portland. They are really good. I stop at the one in the Arbuckle's whenever I'm heading south on I-35. Catfish Cabin on 63rd and Meridian has gone out of business however, as has the northside Pioneer Pies.
                                                  There are a lot of new places in the city making a name for themselves like Big Truck Tacos, Mutt's Hot Dogs, and Tucker's Onion Burgers.
