Dining Out In OKC on Christmas Day
December 5, 2019
For some, the best Christmas present of all is having a tasty meal on Christmas Day that they didn’t have to shop for, prepare or clean up after. So, if being one of Santa’s helpers this year has left you and yours too pooped to load up the dining room table with anything other than wrapping paper and bows, why not treat yourself and the family to a jolly yuletide repast at one of the restaurants listed below. The options come at a variety of prices. Just bear in mind that for many of these places you’d be wise to make a reservation well in advance of the big day to make sure you’re not stuck munching on little more than a lump of coal come dinner time Christmas Day.

Robinson Ave. OKC, OK 73103 (405) 601-9234 Offering its own take on diner classics and American fare, Nic’s Grill is on the outskirts of Automobile Alley, an OKC district positively festooned with lights, decorations and holiday cheer.

Grand House Asian Bistro 2701 N Classen Blvd OKC, OK 73106 (405) 524-7333 Known for its 76-dish dim sum offered on weekends and holidays, the Grand House Asian Bistro also offers a huge selection of Pan-Asian entrees and side dishes like Sushi rolls.
