Clanton's Cafe — Route 66's oldest family restaurant

In 2007, Guy Fieri and the Food Network visited Clanton's Café as part of their “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

Gourmet Magazine columnist Michael Stern was traveling through Vinita in search of the best chicken fried steak on Route 66 when he stopped at Clanton’s. This led to a story in the February 2006 edition on outstanding chicken fried steaks.

Clanton’s chicken fried steak is a 5-ounce beef patty dipped in an egg and buttermilk mixture and then dredged in seasoned flour. The flour beef patty then is fried on a flat grill and served with mashed potatoes and white peppery cream gravy.

A chicken fried steak is $6.39 during lunch hour and a dollar more for dinner, Melissa Patrick said.
