Go West Restaurant & Saloon’s culinary cowboys wrangle bucking appetites with their contemporary, freshly prepared take on the cuisine central to the American West. Plates of fried prickly-pear cactus tag-team taste buds with GW Brand salad, sporting candied pecans, balsamic vinaigrette, and granny smith apples. Chefs sear cowboy pork chops to serve alongside its apple butter and green-chili macaroni, and smoke delectable quarter-chicken entrees with mesquite, filling unclaimed salver space with roasted-garlic smashed potatoes. Buffalo meatloaf tramples traditional loaf thinking with an inspired union of Fioravanti buffalo and wild-mushroom sauce. The dessert course places neglected sweet teeth front and center for a parade of buttermilk pie and bread-pudding slices.
Go West’s 6,200-square-foot interior evokes an upscale ranch house, with an open exhibition kitchen that allows diners to survey the staff’s commitment to using locally sourced ingredients, house-made breads, and 10-gallon chef hats. Tasteful western artwork and regional décor pepper vibrant yellow-and-red walls, providing a western retina feast as hands swirl brandy snifters filled with barbecue sauce.

About Go West Restaurant & Saloon
Aila and Johnny Wimpy serve up portions of contemporary western classics with innovative pairings in their rustic restaurant and saloon. Joseph Hamilton of Urban Tulsa Weekly said that the couple, “[has] taken what are in many cases old standards, and brought the presentations into the 21st century with... a culinary style they like to call 'upscale chuck wagon.'" This masterful mingling of old and new shines through in menu items such as the pan-seared scallops with cheese grits in green-chili broth, local ranch buffalo meatloaf from Nowata Ranch, and cowboy pork chops roping flavorful apple butter. From the gravy to the ketchup, the chefs at Go West make all their sauces from scratch, and champion local sources including Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association beef and Oklahoma-brewed beers served by the pint or ten-gallon hat.
An atmosphere of countrified class prevails throughout the bar and grill, from the heavy, carved chef's table to the trophy longhorn looming over the saloon. Outside, the patio can be spotted protruding from the ranch house, flanked by silos emblazoned with neon lassos to ensure it stays put. Ranch-flavored art adorns the walls throughout the interior, from the rustic main dining room to the Will Rogers room, which can be sealed off for a private party of up to 45.
