Tonight at 8:00, the Travel Channel show Man vs. Food will air its Oklahoma City episode. This is the show where some dude goes around the country eating way too much food at odd and unique restaurants. For the Oklahoma City metro stop, he will go to Cattlemen's, Sid's Diner in El Reno and some place called the Steak and Catfish Barn. Tasty.
This is the second time in the past year or so that a food show has made a stop in the metro. Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives came through last year. Now that Man vs. Food has made its obligatory stop, I guess Kitchen Nightmares isn't too far behind. If not, that's "BOLLOCKS!"
Anyway, here's a clip of tonight's episode:
I guess that's cool, but what kind of irritates me is that the only reality shows that make stops in Oklahoma either have something to do with food or building an over-the-top super home for whiny families. We also have an abnormal amount of Biggest Loser contestants. I think that's all related.
Also, why does every food show and out-of-towner think Cattlemen's is so neat? I get it, cowboys go there, but other than the novelty of that, it kind of sucks. The place basically serves mayonnaise on its salad and calls it a "house ranch" dressing and their specialty isn't steak, but fried beef testicles. Screw that. Send me to The Mantle or Red Prime or Cheevers for dinner instead. Unless, of course, you're paying for it. Then I'm game.
