When it comes to food, the Delta Chapter is filled with certified experts. We’ve tried them all and have compiled a list of our favorites. So without further ado, here are Norman’s top 15 restaurants according to the Delta Chapter!
This popular union hotspot is home to many fan favorites, such as their spicy chicken & waffle sandwich and stacked grilled cheese. Crossroads in the Union is the best place to go if you’re craving breakfast at any time of the day!
14. Ozzie’s Diner
Located in the Max Wertheimer Airport, this hidden gem comes with a meal and a show! You can enjoy your food while watching the planes go by. What more could you want?
13. Tino’s Italian Eats and Sweets
Tino’s #1 fan is a member of Delta (@KaylaAnaMarie), so of course Tino’s was going to make the list! Tino’s is locally owned and has a wide variety of yummy options. According to Kayla, her go-to meal is the soft pretzel with the infamous white whiz cheese sauce and french fries. They also have a number of Italian style sandwiches to choose from!
12. Midway Deli
Midway Deli is home to our game day meal, affectionately known as Pridewiches. Even though the season is over, Delta still goes to Midway to get the legendary pridewich! “Who doesn’t love a game day prandwich on a regular school day?” says Historian Elizabeth Haskins.
11. The Library
No, it’s not an actual library! The Library is located just outside of Catlett Music Center, making it super easy to walk to. From pizza to nachos to burgers, there’s tons of options for everyone!
Even though this isn’t a local Norman eatery, we still had to include it on the list for their deals, such as their 99¢ mozzarella stick day and 50¢ corn dog day. Sonic makes for the perfect chapter snack!
9. O’Connell’s Irish Pub & Grille
Also known as O’Conn’s, this restaurant is one of our stops for our game day eve pep bands. My personal favorite is the ranchhand burger!
8. Othello’s Italian Restaurant
Another campus corner classic, Othello’s is one of the best Italian restaurants in Norman! Not only does it have great food, but The Pride’s drum major, Paxton Leaf, often performs there with his jazz combo.
7. The Caf
Couch Restaurants, or The Caf, is an OU staple. During the fall semester, the entire Pride attends The Caf every Wednesday after rehearsal. The Caf is buffet style and holds one of the only all-you-can-eat Chick-Fil-A’s in the world! The Caf has everything you could ever want, so it’s no surprise it’s this high on the list!
6. Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe
Pickleman’s is the best place to go if you’re looking for a soup/sandwich combo! It’s quick and has great service. If sandwiches aren’t your thing, they also have the best cracker-thin crust pizza!
5. BJ’s Brewhouse
BJ’s serves as the Delta Chapter’s iconic post-second degree meal. My personal favorite menu item is the deep dish chicken bacon ranch pizza. After dinner, it’s necessary to split a pizookie with your little!
4. Tatsumaki Ramen & Lounge
If you like ramen, Tatsumaki is the place to go. They have a huge selection of ramen and sushi to choose from. There’s even a number of vegan options! Our sistaus love it for the chill atmosphere it provides.
3. Victoria’s Pasta Shop
I’m a huge pasta lover myself, so Victoria’s has always been one of my favorites! As an added bonus-there’s always enough to take home leftovers. If that’s not convincing enough, Secretary Brenna O’Hara says “their $6.99 plate of linguini and garlic bread is a game changer.”
2. The Mont
Where do I begin? Delta’s ICONIC post-chapter hangout is home to the best cheese fries in Norman. What’s better than cramming into a booth and splitting cheese fries with your favorite sistaus? For our non-dairy queens, the spicy fried green beans are to die for!
1. Tea Cafe On the Corner
Tea Caf is a restaurant loved by many in the Delta Chapter. Whether you’re just going to get some boba to go or meeting someone for lunch, everything at Tea Caf is outstanding. If you’ve never been, you’re highly missing out. I would suggest getting the chicken fried rice with the fried cheese wontons!
