I recently moved my horse (adopted from Horse Feathers Equine Rescue) to the Circle W and we are both so happy. They have been very accommodating and clearly put the horses' health and happiness above all else. I feel comfortable entrusting my horse's daily care to them and have enjoyed the people I've met there.
This is where I stop when I need unique gifts or something special for entertaining. It has a nice selection of gourmet items that can't be found elsewhere in town. And the people are always friendly there.
Horse Feathers takes in abused, neglected and unwanted horses. They care for them, rehabilitate them and work to adopt them into loving homes. Those that cannot be adopted will live out their lives on 15 acres of pasture.
The Cohn shelter, intended to let pets live out their lives if their owner passes on, also boards cats and dogs for OSU faculty and students. We spoil our cat but feel confident leaving her at the Cohn shelter. They know her, let her spend plenty of time roaming around the cat area and brush and pet her. When we go to pick her up, she often isn't real interested in going home with us! All that for just $7 a day. Also, a student lives on site.
I never tried pizza here. I always liked the lasagna and eggplant rolatini. My husband loves the spaghetti and meatballs. The portions are huge - I always took home enough for one or two more meals.
Do not miss breakfast at Ernie's. Good diner food in a great atmosphere. It's a little crowded but go with it and get to know your neighbors. On nice days, take a table out front. Lunch is also good, with burgers and surprisingly good salads.
Go visit Kenny at Mc Nally's - he's been named the best bartender in town for a reason. He and the whole staff there are fun and friendly. In addition to the bar, they serve food cooked in the same building at Wiseguys. The meat combo pizza is great with beer.
Hideaway is the local favorite but for good pizza, go to Swick's. Their pizzas have a good crust and the right balance of ingredients. Games and party room for the kids make it a good family place. Their cheese sticks are great. They also serve sandwiches and some pastas - which I haven't tried.
This restaurant, run and staff by the school of hospitality, is one of the best options in town for a good meal. Dinner is more formal - and more expensive - and good for visitors. Lunch will see a range of diners, including professors, students and staff. Steaks are good, as is the Ranchers Club sandwich and the shrimp and grits.
I didn't have high hopes for sushi in Oklahoma, but Kyoto's sushi beat my expectations. I've only ordered it for takeout but it's always been good and tastes fresh. Noodles and miso soup are also good. Looks like eating in at the hibachis would be lots of fun.
