The Plaza District, located on 16th street in Oklahoma City is home to many restaurants, retail shops, galleries, performance studios, bars and more! The Plaza District got its name from the historic Plaza Theatre that was built in 1935, and the district continues to grow and thrive more and more each year. With many fun photo-op locations, things to do and cool places to hang out at, The Plaza District is a must-go area for everyone of all ages. Enjoy our team’s curated list of our favorite “5 must visit” eateries in the Plaza!

Mexican Radio

1734 NW 16th Street, OKC, Oklahoma 73106

Mexican Radio is a vibrant and fun eatery featuring their non-denominational tacos. They have a wide variety of menu selections with everything ranging from tacos, empanadas, salads desserts and more. I, Sarah, celebrated my 21st birthday there; and cannot say enough good things about their cocktails. My personal favorite was the frozen Dole Whip; 10/10 recommend!

Pie Junkie

1711 NW 16th St, OKC, OK 73106

Pie Junkie is owned by Darcy Schein and Leslie Coale-Mossman, two (former) stay-at-home moms whose love for cooking grew into a ‘local sensation’. By word of mouth advertising and delicious pies being eaten around the community, they created ‘Pie Junkie’ in 2011 and soon after in 2013, they found their home in the Plaza. They serve a variety of different pie flavors, and they can be bought by the slice, or whole in their store or pre-order. We highly recommend Pie Junkie for your next gathering or for just a comforting treat.
