Best Fried Pickles

Last week I got a text from my sister-in-law telling me that my nephew, Mr. Jaxson, wanted some fried pickles and she wanted to know who had the best. I decided to come up with a list for anyone who wants to know where to find good fried pickles in the Oklahoma City metro. Also now Mr. Jaxson has a list of places to tell his parents to try.

Zac’s Cajun Kitchen- They fry their pickles in a light batter similar to their shrimp. The pickles are just regular dill pickle chips but the good flavor ones (not Kosher dill). Very good, served with housemade ranch. This is also the same breading they use on their fried jalapenos as well, both are equally tasty.

Nashbird- They cut their pickles lengthwise and fry them with a thicker batter. Also served with ranch, they are a true treat.

Cal’s Chicago Style Eatery- These fried pickles are cut like French fries so looks are deceiving at first, but they are good. They can be ordered as a side with a meal.

Rock Cafe- Also fried in a light batter, they are good and come served on a huge plate with ranch. Almost don’t have room for any other food so perfect for a large group.

Ron’s Hamburger’s & Chili- I liked theirs as well, also have a thicker batter and served with ranch.

Philly Homa- They have a large serving of perfectly fried pickles.

Other places that have fried pickles. I just haven’t tried them yet-

Hideaway Pizza- Their fried mushrooms are perfect, so their pickles have to be good. Going to order them soon.

S&B Burger Joint- I don’t visit them often but I need to have some next time I do.

Clark Crew BBQ- I tried the deviled eggs the last time I was in but will tackle this next time.

The Lokal- They have fried pickle spears on the menu, it’s going to be hard not to have my deep-fried deviled eggs, but I have to try the pickles.

Chicken Foot- I love the Okie Poutine so much that I overlook their fried pickles, it won’t happen again.

Okie-Tonk- My favorite restaurant in Moore and I haven’t tried their fried pickles yet.

Chalk- I have only been here once but the next trip I will try the fried pickles.

Food Friday: The Lokal

 

Last Friday was a cold and rainy day, which meant time for some comfort food.  So I braved the water and drove to Yukon to experience The Lokal, a new restaurant on old Route 66.  Tucked away on the western most corner of an old grocery store is where you’ll find this new location for culinary delights.

Being early lunch time, I was seated immediately.  Nice large wooden table but I hate those metal chairs that are everywhere now, just not comfortable.  My order was taken quickly and yes I started with some of their famous deep fried deviled eggs.  Regular deviled eggs are great (especially when my husband makes them) but bread and deep fry them, better than anything at the fair.  The egg whites themselves are the only thing deep fried, the yolk is mixed with other ingredients and placed on top.  The 6 eggs (yes I ate 2 before I took the pic) come with a side of jalapeno ranch that really gives a spicy kick to an already wonderful appetizer.

Next up was my lunch sized chicken fried steak.  If this is lunch sized, then dinner sized must take up the rest of the plate because it was huge (not that I’m complaining).  Along with my side of mashed potatoes, the steak was generously drowned in cream gravy.  So much so that my fried okra came in a bowl, just to keep them dry.  After I polished off those eggs, I started on the steak.  Fried to a crisp gold brown perfection, the breading was light and took nothing away from the flavor of the steak.  The steak itself was very tender and easy to cut.  The mashed potatoes were great as well, complete with some actual potato chunks and skins.  As good as all of it was, the cream gravy was the star.  They must use real cream in it, I made sure every bite I took had some of that gravy on it including my okra.

Then for dessert I took home a slice of red velvet cheesecake.  The red velvet part was perfect as was the cheesecake.  The service the entire time was wonderful and my food was delivered quickly.  I highly recommend that you check it out while in Yukon.  Go for the deep fried deviled eggs, stay for the cream gravy, 5 strips of bacon from me.
