Gone are the days when chicken-fried steak and mechanical bulls were stereotypical fodder for Oklahoma City. Nowadays, chic cocktail bars, a thriving neighborhood culture, and restaurants blending history with modernity are all putting Oklahoma’s capital city on the map in a new way.
It’s no secret that we love the serenity and solitude found in nature, but there’s lots to love about cities as well, especially their amazing food scenes, and here at Hello Ranger, we’re here to celebrate them. From big foodie hubs like Chicago and New Orleans to more under-the-radar places so delicious and comforting that they feel like home away from home (we’re looking at you, Albuquerque, Orlando, Tucson), cities and their restaurants are an important part of the in-between. With Hello Ranger Traveling Eats, we aim to spotlight these vibrant places and what makes them so special, be it Indian tacos in Montana, boozy lattes in Las Vegas, onion burgers in Oklahoma City, or lobster rolls and whoopie pies in Maine. We’re United by Nature, but we’re always happy to make a detour for good eats.
