Feel-good food” encompasses a whole scrumptous spectrum of quality fare, mainly because the idea of comfort food means something different to everyone. To some it’s mom’s stew, to others it may be that one diner’s fried chicken, and to you it might be a warm brownie fresh out of the oven. Regardless of your definition, the food you choose to eat on rainy days, after a breakup or just because you can offers a comfort unlike anything else. We searched far and wide across Oklahoma to find the state’s best “feel-good food,” and we found it. Oh boy, did we.

Meatloaf Sliders – Lucky’s

A twist on the traditional slider, these mini-burgers aim to please. Topped with jalepeno coleslaw and catsup glaze, you’ll find yourself eating all three faster than you can say “meatloaf sliders?!”

Sante Fe Chicken Sandwich – Cafe 501

This sandwich is a stunner: begin with tortilla crusted chicken, monterey jack cheese and roasted corn-avocado salsa, pile on the chipotle-mayo, then place it all on some fresh focaccia and garish with tri-colored tortilla chips.

Just Got Dumped?

In our humble opinion, the only way to heal a broken heart is through good ol’ food therapy. Drown your sorrows in sweet and savory options that will make you forgot about you-know-who and think solely of the scrumptous sustenence in front of you.
