Murphy's Steak House

" Murphy's calls itself a steak house, but to us it looks more like a diner: counter and stools, bare-tabled booths, and a staff of superquick waitresses who git 'er done. The menu does include steaks, and those that we've seen on other people's plates look huge and ..."   [Read More]

The 'hamburger' part of this hot hamburger is completely eclipsed by French fries and gravy. You will find it underneath the spuds and on top of the toast that is visible peeking out at the bottom.

We are big fans of any restaurant that that advertises itself using an image of the animal whose meat they serve. Need we mention that Murphy's is not a vegetarian enclave?

See what we mean when we say that Murphy's has the feel of a diner? At the back of the photo, towards the right and behind the cash register you can see one of the staff taking an order at the walk-up window.

The white bread in the cracker basket comes in handy for mopping gravy from a plate or dipping into separate side orders of gravy. Also note the Country Crock. Butter is a rarity in Oklahoma cafes.
