POSTCARD: Oklahoma City [Edmond, OK] – Steak & Catfish Barn

by jenjenk on February 8, 2010

Dear Friends:
I’m excited to be writing to you from Oklahoma City [ok, not really].   There are so many exciting dining options and opportunities out here [if you like a lot of fried fattening foods, otherwise you’re S.O.L. for the purposes of this particular postcard.].  Take for instance, the Steak and Catfish Barn.
When I was here last October, I made a trip up to Edmond to visit my friend, Carrie.  As I was driving around Edmond, lo and behold what do I see but this sign for a Steak and Catfish Barn.  BARN.  Where they serve both STEAKS and CATFISH.  I’ve been wanting to visit this place ever since [no, really.  It’s all I’ve talked about].
My first glance into the restaurant lived up to my expectations.  I was so thrilled by this sight that I nearly bounced to my table, which was in the next room – brighter & better lit…
[check out the guy in the overalls! 2 of the patrons were wearing overalls…appallingly, this one actually referred to a person from India as a ‘little brown man from injia’]
Our server was wonderful and friendly and even helped me with my selections [even if she didn’t actually bring me those selections, which she corrected right away]. I have to say, they had the best french fries I’ve ever eaten.  I ate half of Carrie’s.  It was awesome.
It was definitely a lot more fried food than I’ve ever had in one sitting.  My stomach was in turmoil for 24 hours but the fried catfish was so moist and perfectly fried that I’d go back and try it again!
As a matter of fact, I even bought a t-shirt because it’s just so spectacular…[a catfish riding a bull…]

Uh-oh. How terrible is it that neither I not my stomach have no qualms about eating fried food? Anyway, good call on the catfish, that looks so good!
(I'm just going to ignore the brown man thing…)
