One of the best breakfasts ever

Loved the biscuits and gravy. Then add the special hot sauce to my freshly cut and made hash-browns. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it again. The bacon had that perfect smoked flavor to it. Haven't been for the dinner menu but plan on it sometime in the near future. Look forward to... read more

We were looking for a hometown meal while traveling. This was perfect. All of our meals were good. The cherry cobbler was excellent.

Great food in a small town cafe atmosphere. It is located on the highway not far from the Holiday Inn Express, only a mile or so off the interstate. It has a very laid back, casual appearance, not fancy at all, but the service was very quick.

I was driving through rural Oklahoma when I came upon this place. It was packed with locals which is always a good sign. I had the fried chicken and it was excellent. The salad was the usual "iceberg special". I wish I had chosen the mashed potatoes as the fries were a bit greasy. It was like stepping back in... More

I was hoping for a truly outstanding chicken fried steak from this homey dinner after reading the reviews. The chicken fried stead was okay, but nothing really special. The mashed potatoes where real, hot, and served with a nice gravy. My grandson ordered a bacon cheeseburger, which turned out to be very disappointing. The pressed patty was quite small compared...

The food was good but the service was bad. My wife return her pie because the crust was too thin and server through a fit. The cashier Dennis was the most unfriendly and didn't ask about our food or thank us.

An old fashioned restaurant with good fried food and friendly service. The salads are simple, but the fried chicken was excellent.

We were heading south and hungry. Fortunately our DDD app directed us here. The food was so good! I ordered the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes, green beans and a salad. The salad was a tad old looking, and the mashed potatoes were cold, but oh my goodness the chicken fried steak was awesome! Hubby ordered pot roast, which... More

The food at Clanton's is really good. It is as close to home cooking as you can get. Their service is fast and the waitresses are very friendly. Lots of meal choices. Check it out at http://clantonscafe.com/

There are not a lot of choices for food in Vinita, OK so thank goodness there is Clanton's. Warning - on a Saturday at 1pm this restaurant was packed with locals! They were featured on Diner's, Drive-in, and Dives for their Chicken Fried Steak. I found it very good, but not the best that I had in Oklahoma. However, while... More
