Where to eat after a night spent along the Oklahoma arm of Route 66? It was between Woody’s and a place called Buttered Bunn’s Café. Our hotel recommended Woody’s, so, somewhat grudgingly, I gave up on the clever name. Good thing.

When the EMTs came in for breakfast, I knew we had made the right choice.

And, when the menu read, “We proudly support local farmers,” with the caution, “Our food is made by hand; sometimes it takes a little longer and sometimes we will be out of an item,” I knew we were in the right place.

And, when they happily offered flapjacks—yes, they called them flapjacks—with our choice of fresh blueberries, local pecans, or chocolate chips, I knew, beyond doubt, that we were in the right place. French toast served in thick wedges. Country ham or Blue & Gold sausage. Homemade biscuits and gravy.

All that, in a pleasant, homey atmosphere, with coffee served in an eclectic collection of mugs.

It’s the Common Man’s Highway. Route 66.
