Eischen’s Bar, Okarche, OK

Eischen’s is Oklahoma’s oldest bar. It’s unassuming, and you’ll want to make sure to have cash because they don’t take credit cards. But the chicken has got to be the most famous in the state. Make the drive. Eat the chicken. It’s absolutely to die for.

Mama E’s Soul Food, Oklahoma City, OK

Mama E’s wings and waffles were featured on Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.” The chicken wings just stand out when served on a fresh waffle with hot sauce and powdered sugar.

Railhead BBQ, Guthrie, OK

Railhead BBQ comes highly recommended by multiple food critics in Oklahoma. The fried chicken is one of their specialties. 

Evelyn’s Soul Food, Tulsa, OK

Soul food seems to always include fried chicken, and Evelyn’s does it right with all the southern fixin’s you could imagine, like candied yams, okra and tomatoes, and macaroni and cheese. 

Southern Belle, Heavener, OK

Trains and fried chicken, what could be better? The restaurant is a refurbished passenger car of the original Southern Belle, part of the Kansas City Southern Railway. They’re known for their fried chicken. 

Clanton’s Café, Vinita, OK
