I am so excited to share with you the best restaurants in OKC by district. During my visit to Oklahoma City, I was amazed at the quality and variety of restaurants we experienced.
We went into our trip with a list of goal restaurants we wanted to eat at and left with an even bigger list of places we still need to visit. Just driving around town it is amazing how many super cool restaurants there are.
The cool thing about restaurants in Oklahoma City is they offer a great mix of southern food with a tex-mex twist. Many chefs are putting their own spins on comfort food.

When it comes to the best restaurants in Oklahoma City there is some serious competition between restaurants! It is hard to place any specific restaurant in the number one spot because so many of them are producing epic food that you don’t want to miss out on.
We are breaking out the restaurants by OKC district to make it easier to plan your visit. I suggest checking out these great things to do in OKC so you can plan your visit to each of the districts.

Bricktown Brewery at Remington Park
If you have ever wanted to watch a horse race while enjoying a killer meal this is the restaurant for you! We sadly visited on a day there wasn’t a horse race but we still had a great time.
Their menu has a huge variety of options including fried okra, green chili and chicken mac and cheese and sea salt caramel fries.
We both went with the grilled cheese and tomato soup and it was delicious. Our server said we had to try the sizzling apple crisp because it was the most popular dessert and we were very happy we had it!
They also have smores pretzels which are a mix of salty and sweet you just have to try.
Because this Bricktown Brewery is located inside Remington Park guests must be 18 to enter

Automobile Alley Restaurants
Hideaway Pizza was one of the restaurants in Stillwater, OK that I loved during my last visit to Oklahoma! I was so excited to see the sign in Automobile Alley and find great pizza.
To start I suggest the 50/50 appetizer with fried mushrooms and fried mozzarella. If you are dining with a group that likes all different types of pizza check out The Hideaway Special which has Hideaway Red Sauce, Mozzarella, and a Different Topping on Each Slice!!
They also have locations in Edmond, Moore, on West Memorial Road in OKC, and on Western Avenue.

Arts District OKC Restaurants
The Jones Assembly
The Jones Assembly is housed in what used to be a Model T storage area next to the manufacturing plant. The restaurant is one part industrial one part a flashback of my childhood with 80s movies playing on the big screen.
The waiter said the 80s movies were retro and that felt like a stab to the heart but thankfully the food and cocktails more than made up for feeling my age.
With a menu that is described as refined regional cuisine, you can expect to find southern comfort food with an Oklahoma twist. We started with the scratch biscuits with honey butter and they were melt in your mouth delicious!
The cocktail menu is inspired and delicious! The Dagwell Dixie is their take on an old fashion! It includes roasted pecan infused George Dickel rye, laird’s applejack, simple syrup, hella orange bitters, Jerry Thomas own decanter bitters.
For a sweeter drink check out the I Love You Gelato cocktail that includes olmeca alton reposado tequila, limoncello, Aperol, lime, fluffy orange juice, lemon curd, pressed lemon oil.
Their wood-fired pizzas were beyond mouth-watering good. My Margherita pizza tasted like it had been flown in from Italy. Fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, basil, and Grana Padano cheese melted together into a delicious pizza.
If you like spicy then you will love the Hot Rod pizza that has habanero pork sausage, pepperoni, mozzarella, caramelized onions, jalapeño, spicy chicharrones, and a hot honey drizzle.
We were so full we skipped dessert but it looked absolutely amazing.
If you are looking for a fun speakeasy vibe head upstairs to The T Room!
The Jones Assembly also has live music concerts so make sure to check their social pages for dates of upcoming events!
Address: 901 W. Sheridan, Oklahoma City, OK 73106
If you love macarons and good coffee/tea you are going to LOVE Cafe Disco!
This tiny cute coffee and macaron shop is the perfect place to relax with a friend on a sunny afternoon.
I highly recommend the Creme Brule macaron that is torched with vanilla bean buttercream and centered with caramel.
They offer single macarons up to 220 macaron towers of goodness!

Oklahoma City Museum of Art Cafe
Tucked inside the OKC Museum of Art the cafe offers French-inflected Modern American Cuisine with lunch, dinner and brunch menu.
I can’t wait to try their baked brie with crispy artichokes, tomato confit, dressed rocket lettuce, grilled sourdough. We did not have a chance to stop at the cafe when we visited the museum but have heard it is fantastic.
The Chihuly exhibit is one of our top things to do in OKC that you don’t want to miss! Having lunch or dinner at the museum cafe is the perfect place to relax and talk about all of the art you just enjoyed.

City Center OKC Restaurants
Located 726 feet above street level dining at Vast provides epic views of Oklahoma City and beyond. You honestly feel like you can see all the way to Texas (Yes, I know that probably isn’t possible but it really does feel like it.)
We enjoyed lunch which is served as an upscale buffet called the daily table. Each week the menu is changed with two types of meat at the carving stations, a fish dish, salad bar, and decadent desserts.
I am in awe that lunch is only $19.95 a person! The view alone I would pay for let along being able to enjoy upscale food and a great atmosphere.
This would be an amazing romantic restaurant OKC for a date night or special event. They have small private dining rooms that can be reserved for special occasions. We heard that many proposals happen in the private dining rooms.
Vast has earned the AAA’s prestigious Four-Diamond award and you can tell why after dining there.
Address: 49th & 50th Floors of The Devon Tower.
Flint is located in the historic Colcord Hotel in the City Center. We enjoyed an amazing breakfast at Flint.

Kitchen No. 324
Kitchen 324 serves what may be the largest thickest giant buttermilk pancake I have ever had with a giant slice of salted butter on top!

Midtown OKC Restaurants
Going into our trip to OKC all I heard was how amazing Waffle Champion was and how it had to be on our must-visit restaurant list. I also heard that we needed to get there EARLY because the line can be around the corner.
Knowing all of this I was a bit worried if the restaurant would live up to all of the hype. Thankfully it not only lived up to the hype it tasted amazing!
I ordered the cinnamon roll liege waffle with the pecan crumble on the side. It was sweet without being over the top.
Next time I want to try the Waffle French Toast with cinnamon cream cheese syrup and fresh strawberries..hello yum!

This is the perfect choice for a group of friends who all love different food but want to hang out together. This is also perfect for having so many options it can be hard to decide what you want to enjoy!

The Shakshuka Dutch Baby is a tomato, bell pepper, onion, seasoning goodness that you don’t want to miss.

Paseo OKC Restaurant
Oso on Paseo
If you love fruity tiki cocktails with a twist, a killer restaurant atmosphere and amazing food you will love Oso on Paseo!
You can’t go wrong with the Miami Vice cocktail that has a banana dolphin served on the side of the glass! Yes you read that right…a banana dolphin!
The Montezuma Cocktail is served in a hollowed-out pineapple with orange and lemon juices, dark rum, white tequila, simple syrup, and grenadine.
I enjoyed the Tater Tots with goat cheese, cheddar – jack, avocado crema, and sunny side egg. You can have this with red chili butter and bacon but I left them off. This dish was sooooooo good! It is listed as a shareable for the table but I had it for dinner and it was perfect.
You can also order individual street tacos by type and how many you want.
For dessert don’t miss the churros with chocolate sauce and vanilla soft serve ice cream.

The restaurant is casual with a fun vibe that makes you want to hang out with friends and relax with a killer cocktail.
Their menu is described as Southwestern Comfort Food with an Oklahoma twist.
Don’t miss the sweet potato fritters! They taste like Thanksgiving in a bowl. Fried sweet potato balls topped with a cinnamon icing and powdered sugar!
Yes, they are super delicious! We shared an order of them and had more than enough.
One of the benefits of visiting for lunch is you can also enjoy the brunch menu. Amy from MomSpark enjoyed the Chilaquiles with pork belly bacon…oh my! This dish includes tortilla chips topped with red chili sauce, green chili sauce, jack cheese, avocados, and an over-easy egg! The dish was huge and so filling!
