After 13 years of treating the taste buds of Harrah, Checkerboard Café and Bakery made its move to Midwest City where it was subsequently kinged. The neighborhood nosh spot serves up a tasty array of lunch and dinner bites, complemented with fresh-baked goodies and homey charm. Start your table with an order of southwest spinach queso dip ($5.99) to share, or grab a baked snorkel and dive into a bowl of baked potato soup ($4.49). The midday menu tempts carnivores and carny voyeurs alike with juicy burgers, toasty pressed sandwiches, and blue plate specials such as chicken fried steak ($8.99), and dinner options add to said delights with an extended list of entrees. Enjoy a personalized portion of hickory smoked prime rib, served by the ounce and cooked to temperature ($1.49 per ounce), or entrust the custom-sized cranny in your belly to a plate of potato-encrusted salmon with rice pilaf ($13.99). All entrees are served with two side orders and customer-acclaimed yeast rolls.
