Eating Local In Oklahoma - The Pecan Porch

This week my co-workers and I discovered this local gem to have lunch at one afternoon. The Pecan Porch is located in Catoosa, Oklahoma. My heart skips a beat for local southern bakery and delis and this was no exception. We pulled in and immediately I screeched, I was in love!

The Pecan Porch sets off the road behind a few trees giving it the true southern peaceful atmosphere.

Their menu is made up of a various sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, to-die-for desserts and much more. I am a sucker for chicken salad sandwiches so I ordered the chicken salad sandwich with a side of delicious homemade pasta salad. My meal came with my choice of cookie and I chose the strawberry shortcake that tasted like pure heaven right out of the oven. They also serve a cinnamon roll that is smothered in a thick creamy frosting that I don't think I will be able to pass up on my next visit.

We had a nice little picnic on a beautiful summer day. Not only is the food amazing but the atmosphere is great. There are so many things I love about eating locally but I really love that the food is almost always all homemade and you get the small family style atmosphere. If you are traveling through the Eastern part of Oklahoma you should stop in, even if its for just a glass of iced tea and a southern pecan pie bar.

My co-workers joked with me after about ten minutes of sitting down with my food while taking pictures and gushing over how much I loved the place I finally started eating....it doesn't take much to please me but The Pecan Porch really won me over. I will be returning and can not wait to stop for lunch on the way to pick blueberries soon!

This was not a paid review by Pecan Porch, I just truly loved it!
