Crowned one of Texas's Best Restaurants by Texas Highways magazine readers, Underwood’s Cafeteria exudes western flair with a menu of biting barbecue and sauce-laden ribs. Gnaw on a pound of sliced barbecue beef ($8.99), German sausage ($7.19 per lb.), spare ribs ($8.79 per lb.) or chicken ($6.59 per lb.), or take a tongue dive through saucy straits of tender pork rib. Massive meals include family-sized selections of barbecue and chicken or single dinners with three sides, rolls, a relish tray, and a fruit cobbler, the perfect edible accompaniment to a long day spent translating Latin stereo instructions.
Chef Grady Spears has authored numerous cookbooks and showcased his skills on Good Morning America and the Today show, yet he still doesn't identify with the term chef. He's a cowboy cook—a long, tall Texan who made a living punching and selling cattle until a freak happenstance involving a quitting chef landed him in the grill-pilot seat. Patrons at Grady's Line Camp Steakhouse won't find any polished bamboo floors; instead, gritty hardwood and log-cabin-style seating complement the hearty menu, responsible for the restaurant's placement on Texas Monthly magazine's list of the 38 best steak houses in the Lone Star State. Patrons can snuggle up to grilled steaks and southwestern-style stuffed peppers after enjoying a beer-battered and fried appetizer or can clink longnecks to live music on the weekends for a rowdy evening without regretting trying to tip over a snoozing cowboy.
Family-owned and '50s-inspired, Nikki's Swirl Shoppe specializes in self-serve frozen yogurt, custom milkshakes, and customized sundaes. Salted caramel, creamy cheesecake, chilled cubes of fresh pineapple, and whole blueberries and rasberries decorate frozen yogurt, whose flavors include strawberry, chocolate mint, hazelnut, pistachio, and pound cake. Like the color of trees and the fashion of chameleons, these flavors change with the seasons, with eggnog and pumpkin making appearances in the colder months. In addition to sating singular sweet teeth, Nikki's Swirl Shoppe hosts parties for all occasions.
Bogie’s Downtown Deli serves up hearty sandwiches and wholesome salads inspired by classic Hollywood films. Enjoy selections such as the Oklahoma Kid, a grilled chicken sandwich capped with monterey jack, avocado slices, and Thousand Island dressing, or the Great O’Malley, a gargantuan burger made with double meat and extra cheese. The restaurant’s walls are adorned with posters that display the Hollywood stars and starlets of yore that provide inspiration for the menu’s edibles.
At Alice's, cooks build platefuls of Tex-Mex food inspired by two generations of the family's talented cocineras. Spicy sauces simmer in pots, waiting to be ladled over enchiladas stuffed with chicken and beef alongside brisket or hard-shell tacos paired with rice and beans. Along with the Mexican fare, the kitchen also whips up American classics, including fried steak, hamburgers, and french fries just like the ones depicted on the American flag next to stripes of ketchup.
