We stumbled across this place by accident and boy, are we glad! Famous for its chicken fried steak, it did not disappoint. Tender, perfectly breaded, and oh so delicious. They offer a variety of homemade soups and pies as well. I don't think I'll try the "turkey fries", but we'll definitely be back.

The food here has always been good. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Just about everything on the menu you can't go wrong with. Chicken fried steak is one of the better ones I have had. Prices are very reasonable and portions just right. Service staff has always been attentive. Every time I am up that way I will make a point... More

Our family went out for breakfast while on a trip and visited Clantons. The staff was super nice and the food was great! Defiantly the best in Vinita!

I grew up eating here and while I am NOT a fan of the ever (in)famous calf fries, I know Clanton's has some of the better ones. Their food is pretty good, but the shining star of the establishment in my eyes has always been the desserts. Their pies are to die for. Can be a bit slow during the... More

We were traveling from Missouri to Texas and were lucky enough to be in the vicinity of this gem at lunchtime. We had seen them featured on DDD at one time and they made the list of top places for CFS in Oklahoma so we have wanted to try it for awhile. It was busy with locals, which is a... More

A local joint gaining some notoriety by being on this popular TV-show. Pretty good food; decidedly Ok breaded/fried-everything. That being said, the chicken fried steak is good; the daily specials even better; and, their calf-fries are the best. Regardless, leave room for their pie - none better. Period.

Amazing food! My son wanted me to order him another chicken fried steak to take home! Chicken and stuffing was delicious. Highly recommended!

After almost nine decades of providing service to the local community and Route 66 travelers, this venerable old restaurant continues to offer friendly service, and good food at fair prices.
