Orins Pizza & Sandwiches

 5 star(s)  (01/16/2012)
“Late 60's early 70's Osher Bachrach aka Orin provided the University of Oklahoma the BEST Pizza in the State. After graduating from Law School he gave up he gave up the feeding of Thousands, the best Pizza in the world, to practice law. What a waste! Love ya' Orin!!”

Pinocchios

“I SO miss Pinnochios! It was great food, so where did it go?”

Tarahumara's Mexican Cafe & Cantina

 5 star(s)  (03/01/2010)
“I have been here numerous times, and no other Mexican restaurant in Norman can hold a candle to Tarahumara's. Every time I go the food is delicious and the service is very fast. In high school, I was able to come here and eat on my short lunch break with time to spare. There are TVs throughout that ... ”

Monique's Corner

 5 star(s)  (03/01/2010)
“I love Monique's! I have made it a habit to come here once a week. It is the only time I have Carribian food, and I can't get enough. I have tried 5 different menu choices and have been pleased with all of them, the Carribian Beef Stew is my favorite.”

Tarahumara's Mexican Cafe & Cantina

 1 star(s)  (10/31/2009)
“The food was very good. What was horrible was how we were treated by the management. When we ordered and asked to split an entree, the waiter attempted to explain about the extra charge. We couldn't understand what he was saying and asked many questions. We said no to the extra set up--believing... ”

Misal of India Bistro

 5 star(s)  (09/03/2009)
“I had never tried this restaurant before, but having just come home from a vacation where a family member took me to a fabulous Indian restaurant I decided on date night with my hubby to try Misal. THE BEST INDIAN FOOD!!! I could not stop saying how great every bite was. I tried my husband's also... ”

Ted's Cafe Escondido

 5 star(s)  (06/08/2009)
“We travel and it is the BEST Mexican food of it's kind we have eaten at. Second is Macayo's in Casa Grande, AZ.”

Blu Fine Wine & Food

 5 star(s)  (05/23/2009)
“OMG, for real! The food here is to die for and the drink specials are awesome! So far I have had the beef tenderloin (which was sooo juicy, I crave it all the time now), the red pepper soup (I want to bathe in it!), the salmon, the walu (spelling?) and really, any fish dish they have on special for ... ”

Ted's Cafe Escondido

 4 star(s)  (05/04/2009)
“OK, I hate to hurt anyone's feelings but.. .come guys. Its regular tex-mex. The food itself is nothing special at all. Service is very good. Tortillas are the only standout, otherwise its your basic beans, rice, burritos kinda place. Food isn't bad jut not anything special.”

Ozzie's Diner

 5 star(s)  (02/08/2009)
“They have great all you can eat breakfasts. If you go on a Sunday after church lets out, or on a football weekend, you're gonna wait a while for a table. They also have homemade soups and pies and their chicken and dumplings are great (also have an all you can eat of this and a few other things...) ... ”

Misal of India Bistro

 5 star(s)  (01/18/2009)
“I have no idea what these people are talking about. This place is the best in Norman for taking a date, or just getting some really healthy and tasty indian food. I have been to Misal many many times and i will continue to go. I have never experienced anyone being rude or trying to gip me like the o... ”

Ted's Cafe Escondido

 1 star(s)  (11/10/2008)
“Sorry, I had heard so much about this restaurant, but when I ate there, I was very, very disappointed. I ordered a Burrito Plate. For $11.95 I recieved a HUGE plate. On one side, they had spray-painted refried beans. On the other, there was an equal helping of rice, almost like they used a machi... ”

Ted's Cafe Escondido

   (10/10/2008)
“THE BEST SERVICE IN OKLAHOMA and the food was great too! Our waiter was Martin and he was the best waiter I have ever had ANYWHERE! & everyone there was awesome I just wish I lived closer I will stop in again my next trip to the City.”

Orins Pizza & Sandwiches

Ted's Cafe Escondido

 5 star(s)  (07/01/2008)
“My family and I was looking for a good Chinese restaurant to eat at tonight, and when we saw the huge number of cars at Teds, we were curious. So we went, and we didn't even mind the fact that the hostess said it would be a 30 minute wait, after all it was 6:30pm. Well, we were able to get a menu ... ”

Ted's Cafe Escondido

 5 star(s)  (04/23/2008)
“We had a fabulous visit to Ted's. We came in from out of town and my brother said we had to go to Ted's. We had a great experience and everything was wonderful - the atmosphere, the service, and the food. When the waitress found out we were there for our first time and that we were from out of to... ”

Ted's Cafe Escondido

 5 star(s)  (03/31/2008)
“This is the by far the best Mexican Restaurant I have ever eaten at. I live in Texas and frequently visit my granddaughter who goes to OU. She has been raving about Ted's Mexican Restaurant and wanted us to try it. We had a pary of eleven and I figured with such a large party our service would not... ”

Misal of India Bistro

 1 star(s)  (03/08/2008)
“The food is not authentic at all. The staff, including the owner was very rude and ignored us. They seated us and gave us the menu and left. After waiting 10-15 minutes, we had to go to the bar area to let some one know that we were ready to order. Then it took them another 50 minutes to bring us ou... ”
