My best friend and I stumbled upon this wonderful establishment while coming back from Tulsa. It's ran by the original owner's grandchildren. The food was so fresh and tasty that we will make the 2.5 hour drive back up there just for the burgers! The onion rings were fresh and homemade, as was everything. I cannot stress just how much we enjoyed this little place! It should be featured on one of those TV shows!

This is an unassuming place in an old building right beside the highway without a large sign and since the name change (and the sign being on the building facing the highway) it is easy to miss. It's now called House of Smoke (see photo). If you park in the back, be sure and walk around on the north side to get to the front door. We went south and almost walked into the kitchen.
It's not a large place (see photo) seating around 40 people and looks like an old diner, a bit run down, but the food was delicious.
My husband got the sliced smoked Turkey (see photo) which was moist and smoky and with the BBQ sauce, it was delicious! I got a cheeseburger and it was equally delicious.
I would definitely eat here again if passing through Okmulgee and try other meats.

Kirby's Cafe is a neat local place offering up a typical range of Midwest American food in a casual, family friendly eatery in downtown Okmulgee. Located on 6th Street, Kiby's is open from 9am to 9pm daily.
Had lunch at Kirby's recently and enjoyed a Chicken Fried Steak ($7.49) served with salad, mashed potatoes and gravy and side of fried okra. Serving size was fair, food was prepared well and tasted as expected - pretty good.
In the end, I like Kirby's Cafe, an affordable and enjoyable restaurant and a good place to try if in Okmulgee if you want to eat at a local place instead of one of the fast food restaurants in town.

Stop here regularly. The bite size chicken is great! They have a kids chicken meal that includes a frozen treat and fries. My boys love it and one of them is very picky. Good old fashioned burgers. Always great. Service almost always fantastic, but you know how kids can be.

We were passing through town, very hungry and it was late. The owners were gracious enough to stay opened a few minutes late so we could eat. Great food, reasonably priced. Very friendly service. Will be back if we pass through the area again!

I had the steak sandwich and it was good. My wife had the chicken strips and she enjoyed them. No complaints. If you like Braums you will probably like this store!

Good place to grab a burger! They have daily lunch specials. I had the patty melt, the special of the day, which includes fries and a drink. I love their ice, which is the small little ice nuggets. I know, strange thing to love, but it makes the drinks so good. The staff is awesome, so nice and great service.

Recently spent a couple nights in Okmulgee and had lunch at El Charro, a Mexican restaurant on North Wood Dr (Highway 75). Opening hours 11am to 9pm daily.
This restaurant has an extensive menu of traditional Mexican dishes, combination meals and lunch specials. During lunch, I tried the Spinach Enchiladas served with refried beans and Mexican rice ($7.25) that was rather decent. The two enchiladas were nice and the sides tasted as expected. Chips and salsa served before the meal were fine.
Dining atmosphere at El Charro is casual and family-friendly. Service was polite and the meal was served in a timely manner.
Overall, I don't know what the overall scene is like in Okmulgee but this isn't a bad place for Mexican food if you want something reasonably priced and good quality and centrally located in the middle of town.

Honestly, not a whole lot in Okmulgee. Drove downtown and spotted this local joint. I'm always up for trying something local while travelling rather than your usual suspects. Thought I'd give it a chance and glad I did. I stopped in for lunch and the place was comfortably crowded. Menu was limited, but was fairly varied.
I got a simple Turkey sandwich, I saw the chicken and waffles and fresh summer salad go by and they definitely looked fantastic! Looked like a NY or Chicago style gourmet meal. Everything looked and tasted fresh.
They were nice enough to throw in a side salad for free for waiting. Nice.
Unfortunately I did not try the coffee. Not too large a selection but certainly had some interesting specialties on the menu. A small selection of baked goods. Interior and ambiance, akin to college or eclectic.
