OKLAHOMA CITY – When thinking about popular Oklahoma cuisine, a few well-known spots may come to mind.
Eischen’s famous fried chicken is a staple for many Oklahomans.
If you are a fan of steak, you may choose to head to Cattlemen’s Steakhouse for dinner.
According to a new study, Oklahomans are not focused on southern cooking, steaks or barbecue.
Instead, the study says the Sooner State craves Tex-Mex.
Yelp figured out which cuisines were most common in each state by examining restaurant listings on its site.
Yelp calculated the percentage of total restaurants each cuisine represented in a given state. Then, it compared that percentage with the cuisine’s representation across the country.
According to the data, Oklahoma’s ‘Tex-Mex’ listings are 93 percent higher than the national average.
While Tex-Mex takes the top spot on Oklahoma’s restaurant listings, barbecue, steak and buffets are not far behind.
