From salads to the “Original Thang” the 15th Street Grill in Midwest City has a variety of tempting, freshly made dishes.
In 1991, Kellie Hosford’s mother, Glenda Conley, bought the business that is located at 1204 Lockheed Drive. Conley sold the restaurant in 2000, when her husband became ill.
Hosford and her husband, Steven, bought the restaurant in 2007.
Photos of motorcycles dress the walls, but the establishment has a friendly, homey atmosphere, Hosford said. To emphasize the relaxing atmosphere, the couple keep a large container of cheese balls and pork rinds available for customers to snack on.
The grill’s owners offer coneys, burgers, sandwiches, fries and more. Prices range from $2.25 to $8.50.
An open grilling area allows customers to watch Hosford’s husband create the enticing food served at the restaurant.
The best known dish at the restaurant is the “Original Thang,” which is a double-meat opened faced cheeseburger covered with chili. The burger also is served with chili cheese fries, topped with diced onions and jalapeños. Patrons can either choose a full order priced at $8.50 or a half order at $7.50. A drink is included in the pricing.
Customers also can try the Tinker Special, which includes a freshly grilled onion burger, their choice of chili cheese fries or tots and a drink for $7.
The restaurant menu includes deserts like apple or cherry turnovers, milk shakes, malts and other sweet treats.
People should come to the restaurant because “it’s a great place to eat,” Hosford said.
Besides coming in to see if a photo of their motorcycle has been put up on the wall, she said patrons keep coming back for several reasons.
“It’s the food and people like the atmosphere,” Hosford said.
