Oklacruisermom, I hope I didn't sound mean. I wanted to let you know about normal dining prices here without sounding snobby.Oh, no, you didn't at all. I just meant that I was afraid someone would think I sounded incredibly cheap and maybe a little countrified or "hick". I know that my idea of somewhat pricey might be someone else's idea of super reasonable. And also that restaurant rates vary by location, etc.
Oh! You know what it is- it's not that prices like Bubba's are unreasonable, or probably even that they are higher than a similar place somewhere in OKC or Dallas- it's just that they don't have anything even like that here where I live. In my town, the Santa Fe Steakhouse is the top of the food chain, except for the few local upstart places that try to pretend they're fancy. (or that try to BE fancy) Like Fireside Dining, Cafe Alley, or Jake's Joint (or maybe it's called Jake's Place). I heard they had a fixed price menu on Valentine's Day that was about $100 per person?
