A great place to eat in Norman Oklahoma

July 17th, 2013

The patio at The MontIf your looking for a great place to eat close to the OU campus or to just enjoy an adult beverage on the patio then The Mont is the place for you.

In the late 1920’s a restaurant opened at the corner of Classen (US 77) and Boyd streets in Norman, Oklahoma named The Monterrey. U.S. 77 was the main north south highway until Interstate 35 was built in the 60’s. The Monterrey was one of the first businesses in Norman that had air conditioning.
Around 1943, Joe Charles purchased the Monterrey and operated it until 1968. They served traditional Mexican food, breakfast and American food to residents of Norman as well as people passing through Norman on U.S. 77
The Monterrey had a message to their patrons printed on their 1943 menu that read “It is the desire of the management and employees to render you the best possible service, the highest quality of food, properly prepared and temptingly served. Your stay with us must be a pleasant one! Enjoy your repast to the fullest and linger long amid the surroundings and atmosphere we have endeavored to create. Your return again spells our success. Any criticism or approbation will be greatly appreciated.”
The entire Charles family worked in the restaurant at one time or another. There was normally not a need for many other employees as Mr. & Mrs. Charles had 13 children! In fact, one of the Charles’ sons, Mike “Miguel” Charles, worked for The Mont Restaurant in the same kitchen as when he was a teenager until 2008. The Monterrey was closed in 1968. In 1972 Mr. Charles died in a car accident in Mexico. Since that time at the same location the building has operated as a German restaurant, Volkstube, a Mexican restaurant named Hacienda Hernandez and a BBQ restaurant for a short time.
In 1976 the Monterrey building had been vacant for more than a year when three OU fraternity brothers decided to reopen it. Everyone in Norman referred to The Monterrey as The Mont so naming the new restaurant was easy.
Since opening on October 30, 1976 The Mont has grown from a local hangout for OU students into one of the most popular restaurants in the metro OKC area. As The Mont’s popularity grew over the years, many awards have been won, mostly in newspaper readers polls such as The Best Restaurant in Norman (won numerous times), Best Bar, Best Patio, Best Appetizers, Best Mixed Drinks, Best Exotic Drinks and the list goes on. In the early 90’s The Mont was honored with a feature in Southern Living Magazine. One of the reasons for the huge success of The Mont is using the same business philosophy that was used by the Charles family – Render you the best possible service, the highest quality of food and drink, properly prepared and temptingly served in a wonderful, historical atmosphere.
So the next time your in Norman, whether its for a game or just a visit, make sure and pay a visit to The Mont.

Some history on Moore OK

July 15th, 2013

Moore was founded during the land-run of 1889. The early settlers came on train, horseback, wagons, and some, on foot. According to local historians, the town’s original name was “Verbeck” as designated by the railroad company. However, a railroad employee named Al Moore, reported to be either a conductor or a brakeman, lived in a boxcar at the camp and had difficulty receiving his mail. He painted his name – “Moore” – on a board and nailed it on the boxcar. When a postmaster was appointed, he continued to call the settlement Moore. When the town incorporated in 1893 the name was legalized.

The original town site comprised a small area bounded by the present NE 3rd Street on the north and SE 4th Street on the south; the eastern limit was situated about one and a half blocks east of the railroad and the western edge about two and a half blocks west of the railroad.

The little town slumbered comfortably for seventy years — then it exploded in a frenzy of expansion and development that attracted attention nationwide. In 1961 approximately 21.6 square miles of additional territory was annexed and Moore became a city in 1962. The decade of the 60’s saw Moore’s population soar.

The 1970 census showed an increase of more than 950% for a total of 18,761. The 1980 Census recorded 35,063 residents – an 86% growth rate. Moore continued to grow during the 80’s, with the 1990 Census indicating a 15% increase to 40,318. The 2010 population for Moore is 55,081.

On May 3, 1999, Moore experienced the most violent tornado ever recorded. As a result, over 1,000 dwelling units were destroyed and some 3,000 to 4,000 residents were either temporarily or permanently displaced. Several hundred homes have been rebuilt, and Moore is almost 100% recovered from that devastating storm.

An important factor in the city’s growth has been its location. The close proximity and easy access to the state’s Capitol city on the north and the University of Oklahoma to the south make Moore an attractive, convenient place to live.

May 10th, 2013

Bricktown is a historic district nestled in the heart of Oklahoma City which has a great variety of unique and exquisite restaurants, retailers and entertainment venues, and is visited by millions of people every year.

The area was a once abandoned old warehouse district, received a much needed transformation with the passing of MAPS (Metropolitan Area Projects) in 1993 when Oklahoma City took on a massive public facility enhancement project.

Bricktown is a much sought after destination for locals and tourists alike. The canal lends itself to the picturesque look and feel of the district and the signature red brick architecture updated with modern day renovations keep the history and spirit alive, reminding us it is once again the hub of Oklahoma City.

Some of the over 50 dining and nightclub attractions include Abuelo’s Mexican Food Embassy, Bourbon Street Café, Coyote Ugly, and City Walk.  Other attractions include the Bricktown Water Taxi, the American Banjo Museum, the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark, and the Bricktown Bike Bar.

Whatever it is you’re looking for in entertainment, food, and nightlife Bricktown has it, so go and enjoy.
