Located in south-central Oklahoma, the small town of Ardmore neighbors a 5,700-acre lake that plays host to plenty of festivals, state parks, and fare for any traveler. Most restaurants in the area focus on huge helpings of the simple comfort food staples that the region is known for. Try country fried steak, homemade pan gravy, and baked beans. With a great fishing hole nearby, you can also find some locally sourced fried catfish accompanied by hush puppies and fresh-cut fries. Tex-Mex is also a staple in Oklahoma, and Ardmore has plenty of authentic Mexican dishes served up with fishbowl-sized margaritas, spicy salsas, and crisp tortilla chips.
