Want to eat like a local? Midtown is the district for you. It's filled with OKC staples like Brown's Bakery, the Boulevard Cafeteria and Kaiser's American Bistro and fan-following favorites like Irma's Burger Shack and Elemental Coffee. Once you've stuffed yourself silly, you can take a Spokie bike rental on a spin around the historic neighborhoods that fill the district.
Eat... at a food truck favorite that's always in the same place. Waffle Champion started as a mobile kitchen filling stomachs in OKC with delicious waffle-ness. These days, they've put their roots in Midtown with a brick and mortar location that oozes syrupy goodness. Dive into their Buttermilk n' Sage Fried Chicken (served on top of your choice of a savory or sweet waffle) or build your own Sweet Waffle (we suggest you include speculoos spread - aka cookie butter).
Enjoy... a rooftop with a view. Located on the east side of Midtown, Packard's New American Kitchen was once a Packard dealership, but today it's one of OKC's newest restaurant success stories. Stroll the original tile showroom floor and head up to the rooftop deck for a Pack Mule or maybe the Duke of Earl (don't worry, those are cocktails) and one of the most incredible views in Oklahoma City.
Experience... a local brew at McNellie's in Midtown (James E. McNellie's Public House if we're being proper). Worried about the selection? Don't be. With more than 350 beers offered, you can sample everything from hard-to-find draught beers to great local brews like COOP Horny Toad, Marshall Sundown Wheat, Choc American Wheat and more.
NW 10th & Walker Ave.
Of course, the guide above is just a sampling of what there is to taste, see and do in the district.
