Guy is right. This place is "the money!" Very clean, friendly wait staff, & super good food that is moderately priced. Went around lunch time and it was very busy but still got seated quickly. Food was attractively plated, hot, and flavorful. Would love to visit again and try something else from menu. Everyone in our group said their food... More

OMG the chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and green beans were so good! Once again Guy and Triple D didn't let us down! We even tried the calf fries!

I had heard that Clanton's was the best chicken fried steak in Oklahoma and they certainly did not disappoint. We were traveling thru Vinita and stopped in for dinner. The food was outstanding. The mashed potatoes were real, not boxed. The chicken fried chicken was done to perfection. The green beans tasted fresh from the garden and the sweet tea... More

Loved the food here. Not so much the Fries but the roast beef is fall apart delicious and the chicken fried steak was huge. Big portions at low prices and tastey.

If you're looking for a good chicken-fried steak in Vinita, Oklahoma, then Clanton's is your place. Just look for the giant sign that says "EAT". The staff was very accommodating for a party of ten and our waitress was fantastic. I wish that I had saved room for some cobbler, but the chicken-fried steak filled me up. Worth a trip... More

We showed up as a party 7 on a Friday evening. It was very crowded, but we were seated almost immediately. Although my meal, the chicken quesadilla appetizer was pretty bland, everyone else seemed satisfied with their meals. Tried some calf fires, just to say I had. Again, not much flavor. The server was very kind and attentive considering the... More

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
