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

We stopped for Sunday lunch while traveling through OK. The food was delicious, the waitress was very sweet and it was a neat, small town atmosphere. Loves reading all the articles on the wall about being featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!

We were doing the Route 66 trip and on our way we stopped at Clantons. The Chicken fried steak was INCREDIBLE, as was the mashed potatoes and cream gravy. It was just simply the best REAL Chicken fried steak we have ever had. This was not a piece of meat that was frozen and dropped into a deep fryer. This... More

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

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
