While visiting in Lawton OK I had the privilege of eating at Meers Store and Restaurant. It has it's own town called Meers,OK. What an experience!. The Meers Store is located on highway 115, 1 1/2 miles north of the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge, where in 1927 the U.S. Forest Service gathered 20 cows and 3 bulls to save the Texas Longhorn from extinction. Take I-44 to Hwy 49. Travel West about 4 miles, to Hwy 58. Turn to the North for about 5 miles to the turn-off to Meers (follow the signs). Now turn to the West for 4 miles and you're there.
You step back in history for some of the best food you've ever eaten. It is a family run business and the award winning hamburgers are from long horn cattle raised on the family ranch. Meals are served on a metal pie pan and a Meersburger darn near fills the entire pan. A Meersburger is 7 inches in diameter and cut into quarters. Each quarter is the size of a normal burger and let me say it was delicious. The meat was lean and tasty and contained none of the additives you usually have in the ground beef served in restaurants.
The crowning moment of the meal for me was my first taste of the homemade peach cobbler served warm with Meers own homemade ice cream. AMBROSIA!
The also have cherry cobbler but there aren't words to describe how delicious that dessert is. I even went back another day for more.
At Meers you are treated to superb food, a lot of history, great service and the desire to go back.
Prices are not to be believed as the portions are absolutely huge and often shared by two. You can get a full sense of Meers Store and Restaurant on their website.
