So everyone will make a big deal about the chicken fried dish -- which they should because my husband was quite pleased with his order. But the unexpected treat was 4 bowls of banana pudding we were each served with a vanilla wafer for our dessert. And they serve it right away so you know to save room as you... More

Casual dining in 50's atmosphere. I loved the celebrity photos and diner decor, though it is beginning to show wear and tear. The diner was very busy for a small town on a Wednesday night just before closing. Our food was delicious, though the service was only mediocre. I believe the young lady was more concerned about getting off on... More

On Route 66 in Vinita, OK is the diner Clanton's Café. Not fancy, but it's comfy with walls covered with old celeb pictures and bustling with activity even at 2 o'clock. We like to try the Diner's, Drive In's and Dives recommendations whenever we are visiting different areas of the country, and although this place is in our home state... More

Okay, those who are in for exotic food will need to try the calf fries. These are the very best in the whole country. Many TV chef's have visited here to try them and they are indeed a real treat. If not up for that, try the chicken fried steak with all the trimmings. You will not leave hungry. This... More

Low key local diner, decorated with photos of famous patrons. Fried chicken, Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, and pie to DIE FOR! Portions are huge and the price is low. Can't get a happy meal for what you pay here. DELICIOUS!!! Service is always friendly. We have eaten here many times and make a point to get there before they... More

If you eat at the restaurant it's ok food. But if you get it catered make sure you get a top piece of meat. They pile it in 0 abs and it is so greasy by the time you get to the middle it's almost uneditable.

My wife and I were looking for somewhere to eat lunch before getting on the turnpike, so we drove through Vinita. I noticed a large number of cars at Clanton's, so we decided to try it. The food was fantastic, and the price was exceptional. For the price of a burger and fries we had a wonderful chicken fried steak... More

Except for a couple of national chain restaurants this is the only place to eat. Fast service, friendly staff, clean, efficient and the food isn't bad either. It's close to the hotels and the highway. We tried their new appetizer, fried pickle chips. They were good and had a kick to them too. We also had the chicken fried steak,... More

Nothing changed here since the last review. Everything was great. I had the beef tips and wife had the famous chicken fried steak with mashed and gravy. Well worth the stop if you are travelling down I-44 or old Route 66. Family friendly although our dog didn't mind waiting in the parking lot as long as we brought him something.... More
