Nancy's is a cozy bar/restaurant whose patrons run the gamut with respect to age and musical tastes. Karaoke begins around 8pm, and is fun and entertaining, whether you are a spectator or participant. The DJ has over 100,000 songs in his library and he does a good job of making sure there's a decent mix offered throughout the evening. Some of the regulars have pretty good voices. Occasionally someone will get on stage after they've enjoyed a bit too much liquid bravado, but they're just as fun to cheer on as the others. We arrived early on a Sunday night with a friend visiting from Australia. At first we weren't quite sure what to think of the place but as the evening went on, we found ourselves among a lively and friendly crowd. About the food -- the apricot chicken was a little overcooked and lacked flavor but the pork tenderloin was wonderful. Important notes: 1-the a/c is extremely efficient, so bring a wrap or sweater if you tend to chill easily. 2-don't pick a song with swear words, or if you do, make sure you don't actually sing them. The owner WILL make the DJ turn it off. (not a bad thing, IMHO)
Ok, hats off to Sherlocks. They have been around since I first started going out dancing in the late 1970's, and this is still my favorite place to dance. The crowd varies from night to night, but seems to draw people over 30, so if you are looking for a place to dance in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, Sherlocks is it. Service is consistently good, and the lighting is great. This little club is laid out perfectly, with seating a little bit above and around the dance floor. The music is a mix of hip hop, line dances like cupid shuffle and spanky leg, old rock n roll, country and western, something for everyone. You will see people here in everything from jeans to suits. I have checked out the various dance clubs in Okc, and the techno music or top 40 stuff is not for me. You will always find some good music here. Some nights they are full, sometimes is is a smaller crowd, just depends. Ladies nights Sunday Tues Wed Thurs get in free, which is a great deal. They still do the Gator, which is great fun to watch. Come once and you will be hooked.
I have been going to Anns for 28 years. We went there once a week for years. In all that time their food has been consistently wonderful. It is a very small place, but the service is quick and the food is always fresh and hot. We have ordered other things occasionally and it was always very good but we are addicted to that chicken fry!! The house dressing, garlic ranch is made fresh, it's creamy, mild and delish. I could say the same about the cream gravy, made fresh, creamy, mild, and delish. There are other places we like to go with great food but what keeps us coming around so often to Ann's is great food at a low price. In 28 years the only problem we had was the chicken fry getting a little bit too done. That has happened 3 or 4 times. We miss the original waitresses now. The ones that watched us become a family and watched our kids grow up. They were there so long, they felt like family to us. They still have great service and a lot of memorabilia mostly from the 50's, 60's. Oh Yummm, now I think I'm fixin' ta git me som'a that chick'n fry.
