I think it's around $9.99 for dinner, which may seem a little high, but it's delicious and you will get your fill for sure. My favorites are the tika (sp) masala and the palak paneer. They've got steamed and saffron rice, usually fried spinach leaves and a few other appetizer type choices. Spicy potato dishes, other veggie and beef options, sometimes fried chicken or fried shrimp. They've also got salad, chutneys and for dessert they usually have this GREAT carrot pudding (just try it), or rice pudding, banana pudding or jello, and those little milk balls in syrup are my favorite. We were SOOO happy when they came into the neighborhood. Open over a year now. It's absolutely delicious.
The fine fellows at Buchanan Bicycles all ride bikes, race bikes, work on bikes. They know road bikes, cruisers and off-road, they could probably even help you with your unicycle. If they don't have it, they would love to try to get their hands on it for you. It has been around and passed down and the current staff could all probably tell you more than you ever wanted to know. They've also got riding gear, bags, baskets, etc. They get busy because they're great! Let them get you headed down the road on the most efficient form of transportation known to man/ womankind...
Cookies and Cards is a staple on campus corner, the brownies can be found all over Norman at different gas stations. I am a big fan of the cream cheese brownie and the cinnamon swirl and pistachio almond cupcakes. She also does cupcakes for weddings, and I recently had her special order me some Vandor Peanuts items, quite a feat as I have been pestering other gift shops to have a guaranteed sale to no avail. But there are all sorts of cards, racy, classy, and cute as well as candles, wind chimes, angels, and jewelry. Nancy is the best, try some baked wonder today!
The menu read like a dream, as did the decor. The rest was a disappointment. The wait-staff was terrible, it took a long time to place an order, only got 1 refill in the 2 hours we were there. It is a wine bar, so if you want to get hammered before you get your meal, they have quite the good selection. If you're not into wine, I suggest bringing your own water. The portion size couldn't satisfy a 6 year old. A chicken breast, 3 trimmed asparagus spears, and a tablespoon of mashed potatoes. If the food was higher quality that would have been one thing, but the chicken breast had the texture that made it obvious it had been frozen. The fish we ordered was over cooked. This was highly recommended by a wine glutton friend of mine, so I'm guessing, the higher the bar bill, the higher the estimation of the food???
YUM YUM YUM. I still daydream about the grilled zucchini, I had stopped eating zucchini until I went to this place, now I try to recreate it. Nothing flashy, just delicious. Pretty packed for lunch, but if you get a table, you'll be in and out in no time.
I did some research on the health department website after I got super sick. They were cited for mixing raw meat and uncooked vegetables. There was also only one thing they could prepare me without cilantro. I didn't know you could could slow roast pork roast until it was dry and flavorless, I learned something new. Yet another "Mexican" place with Ranch dressing on the menu!
The food was mass produced and lackluster, I went with a stuffed up nose, and left in the same condition after all but drinking their salsa spiced about like ketchup. Not what I was expecting after so long time residents had raved about it. Long lines and OK margaritas.
Every time we had had someone taking us to lunch, this is the first place anyone would blurt out. This place is fantastic. I always left near exploding because it was simply too good, try one of the daily specials! Indulgent mashed potatoes, wonderful sauces, fished cooked to perfection, and no matter how large our party we still go our food to the table in a reasonable time. Fairly pricey but the quality of the food is definitely worth it. I think they are closed for lunch on Saturday, not sure of Sunday hours.
Ok, it IS a small store, but it's right there, across from the high school, behind the Homeland, on the corner. They keep some nice brews in stock for those who choose to venture beyond the rivers of Bud Light when tailgating, plus whatever else you need to stock the party. The pricing is probably on par for a liquor store, but it's a fixture.
Cellar has been open over a year now and I'm very happy about that. Spacious and friendly with quality and variety. I'm always on the lookout for great beers and that's not always easy to come by in Oklahoma. They've got large selection of micros, imports and seasonals. And did I mention it's huge? I don't normally shop for wine, but I hate it when I feel like I'm going to destroy some pricey bottle just by reaching for my back pocket. With better than average pricing for most things, it's a bright beacon (well lit, haha) on the western edge of downtown. Cellar is bound to have what you're looking for, but it's still Oklahoma so make it in by 9.
