October 23, 2016 -- Welcome to Ann's
Colorful mural on the side of Ann's Chicken Fry House along old U.S. 66 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Ann's Chicken Fry House has served tasty homestyle food from this location for decades. Located in a one-time gas station, the restaurant is cozy with a retro flair.
Steeped in nostalgia, this Route 66 landmark – notable for the old Pepto Bismol-pink Cadillac and vintage police car parked out front – elevates the chicken fried steak to high art. Another of their popular specialties is Fried Peaches. I know that doesn’t sound all that good, but one taste and you’re hooked.
Ann's Chicken Fry House started life on old Route 66 in 1948 as a Cities Service gas station. It operated as such along the Mother Road until 1966 when it was transformed into a restaurant called "Three Bulls Steak House." A returning Vietnam Veteran became a partner when he came home and did a complete overhaul of the name, menu and décor.
From the ‘50s décor – complete with retro-faced jukebox, neon, music memorabilia – to the vintage pink Cadillac & old Police Car parked in front, Ann’s gets points for nostalgia but wins on its service and what’s on the fork. A definite stop if you’re ever in the Oklahoma City area.
