Faves: The Mule
The new kid on the block, it’s a place favored by the trendy and timeless in Oklahoma City. And why would it not be an instant favorite? Hot grilled cheese sandwiches, as imaginative as they are delicious, paired with cold beer and served in a modern gastropub setting.
“Oddly enough,” says co-owner Joey Morris, “(grilled cheese sandwiches) remain a food that has endless possibilities.” Gourmet touches, like the gruyere, prosciutto, figs and balsamic reduction found in the H.A.M. certainly make an impression. But Morris says it’s the Macaroni Pony that is the best seller: chipotle barbecue pulled pork, three-cheese macaroni and pickles sandwiched between jalapeno cornbread. All sandies are served with a side of choice. Add a craft cocktail or local beer, and you’ve got a dandy. 1630 N. Blackwelder, Oklahoma City. www.themuleokc.com
