If you’re looking for a good place to eat on Friday nights in the Altus area, let me give you a few of my recommendations. If you’re looking for Mexican, then try out Mi Familia behind AT&T or El Rey right outside the front gate of the base. Both have great chips and salsa, and the service is excellent! They have a variety of items to choose from on their menus, and the prices are very reasonable. Try out the chicken fajitas at Mi Familia, and I personally like the taco salad at El Rey.
If you’re looking for Italian, then Romas is the place to go. It’s located on North Main Street by the Farmers Insurance office. The atmosphere is very quiet and peaceful, and the food is excellent. The manager is super nice and will do everything he can to make your experience great. Try out the Romas Salad or the Chicken Romas. Both are fantastic!
Finally, if you’re looking for a good steak, head on over to Blair to the Backdoor Steakhouse. It’s about a 10 minute drive north of Altus, but the food and drinks are great! You will get the Southwest Oklahoma small town feeling with great food and service!
