Stopped going to Charcoal Oven some time ago because it was too pricey, even though the food was good. And it was a cool local and long time icon. But we had to have one more theta burger and chick a doodle do sandwich. So...More

This place closed Sunday night and my daughter and I were one of their last customers. The Charcoal Oven has been a landmark on NW Expressway my entire life. It has amazing food but they have long struggled with quality and price. They have had...More

Food was way overpriced. Burgers are nothing special just average. Fries and onion rings were overcooked and very crunchy. Order taker could not speak English. $22 for two burgers and onion ring in France. Do yourself a favor and skip this place.

Their onion rings are the best! We always stop here when we're in OKC. The service is good and it's just a neat place to go.
