Looks like Guy Fieri is headed to Oklahoma next week for Diner's, Drive-Ins and Dives. NewsOK reports that Eischen’s Bar in Okarche, OK, is on the list of featured restaurants. The bar is known for its fried chicken.

An anonymous reviewer on CitySearch said, "The oldest bar in Oklahoma! Well I know most people go to Eischen's for the fried chicken and beer. I personally am not big on either one but my favorite is the fried okra."

And a YahooLocal reviewer said, "Simple (sic) the best chicken I have ever eaten. I am not a real chicken eater but I will eat here anytime. Its neat that the place has been around more than 100 yrs. We went with another couple and had a blast. Thanks Pete and Deb. It's more fitted for adults but children can go as well. Have the chicken and fried mushrooms. Worth the trip any distance."

This isn't Guy's first visit to Oklahoma. Clanton's Cafe, The Rock Cafe and Leo's BBQ have been featured in the past.

Anne Fox won the Emmy for Outstanding Directing In A Culinary/Lifestyle Program for Giada At Home. Other shows nominated were Guys Big Bite, The Martha Stewart Show, and This Old House.

Upcoming Events:
California Food & Wine Festival - May 30, 31
Great American Food & Music Fest - June 13
Summertini - June 19
