Hickory House Barbeque Sapulpa Oklahoma

Yesterday evening as I was heading home I happen to be passing through Sapulpa Oklahoma.  I was passing through about 8pm in the evening.  When I happen to come across the sign for Hickory House Barbeque.  I went ahead and stopped as I was getting out of my car I caught the smell of the food, the smell was enchanting. 

I happened to see only a few cars in the parking lot which for a Barbeque place typically is not a good sign but  I went on it.  The cashier asked me if I was eating in.  I advised I was, so she had me take a seat where ever I wanted.

I sat near the front on the plus was not to bad however it ended up by the restroom.  Apparently every evening they have a buffett for $12.95 I am a firm believer that the buffett style of food is never the best.  It seems to be more bland than the menu food and often because they make the amounts they do it never seems to taste as good. 

After I sat down my waitress Christine took my drink order and asked me if I wanted the buffett.  I advised her that I did not that instead I wanted the Barbeque Bologna sandwich with a side of beans.  She took my order and off she went.  She stayed bus cleaning however that ment she wasnt up for chatting which IMO is part of the dining experience friendly staff. 

I got the food in about 7 or 8 minutes which is OK with me but apparently it had gotten out that there was a guy in a dress eating at their restaurant because I dont think there was a kitchen staff person who didnt stop to try to get something for me or just come out to take a peak. 

The Bologna sandwich was good ordered it was sauce on it however they were kind of stingy with the sauce so the bologna was still dry in a few places.  The bologna was missing some flavor which is why sauce is always good, however there was was pretty good it was not great but it was pretty good. 

The beans tasted like they tried to spice up baked beans and it didnt work out so well.   They were fine but not great and a disappoinment compared to the spell of their barbeque and the taste of the bologna.

Overall the food was not to bad it left something to be desired however I was able to get out of the restaurant for less than $9 so not to bad either.  If you are in Sapupla it may be worth the stop.

Morrison Cafe

Earlier this week I happened to end up in Stillwater Oklahoma for work.  On my way out of town I happened to pass by this little restaurant called the Morrison Cafe in Morrison Oklahoma.  It was about 10AM so I stopped by to get a bite to eat. 

When I went in I noticed that there was only 1 other couple in the restaurant so I sat at a table across from them.  The waitress was moderately friendly but you could tell she would have rather been doing something else than helping me. 

I started off with a glass of Ice Tea, as cold as it was that morning I definitely should have started with some coffee but went with some tea just the same. The tea was unsweet they had both but  I decided to stick with the unsweet it was refreshing and the flavor was not to bad. 

I order 2 eggs over medium and an order of bacon.  I had to only wait about 5 minutes and my meal was delivered the eggs were alittle more runny than I like but overall they were not to bad.  The bacon was crispy not burnt just crispy and it was OK as well. 

I started getting cold in the restaurant apparently the restaurant was well heated.  I went ahead and ordered a cup of coffee.   The waitress brought it to me in a to go cup apparently she was ready for me to go.  I advised that was not needed so I sat down and started drinking my coffee I attempted to make small talk but she was more interested in seeing me leave than being chatty.

The only plus for the entire meal was that I got out of there for less than $6 for breakfast which is very reasonable.  If you happen to be in Morrison and dont want to spend alot of money and get average to good food the Morrison Cafe maybe the spot for you.
