Restaurants in Bricktown OKC
Bricktown has more than 30 restaurants ranging from inexpensive to fine dining. To save some money in your travel budget but still have a great meal, try Sonic America’s Drive-In. If you’ve never been to a Sonic, you’re in for a treat. And if you have, this location is a bit different because you don’t order from your car. You go into the restaurant, order from the counter, and choose either a seat inside or outside at the picnic tables, where they will bring your food to you. Oklahoma City is home to the corporate headquarters of Sonic and the company is very involved in the communities it serves.
If you’re hungry for tacos, a favorite for us is Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Or for a more extensive menu, try another of our Oklahoma City favorites, Chelino’s, at their downtown location. If you’re looking for a more upscale restaurant, enjoy a steak at Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse.
