Red Horse Grill celebrates 20 years

NORMAN — The Red Horse Grill, 2205 West Main Street, will celebrate its 20th anniversary this month. The original restaurant was located north of Main Street and Porter Avenue back in the 1950s and Jane Kabara’s mother, Joleta Dean, worked there.

Owned by Sam Snook, that establishment closed in the late 1950s or early ‘60s when Snook retired, said Jane and Andrew Kabara, the grill’s current owners.

“Whenever we were getting ready to open this, it was ‘what are you going to call it?’” Jane Kabara said.

Her brother suggested they call it the Red Horse. Now, the reincarnation of the Red Horse Grill will be in operation for 20 years on May 13.

“We opened on Friday the 13th,” Jane Kabara said.

The Kabaras will be celebrating all week long with specials every day and 20 percent off on Tuesday. New to the menu is Wednesday nights all you can eat Indian tacos.

At the Red Horse Grill, the Kabaras strive to use only the freshest ingredients with no added salt or other seasonings, and trans fat-free canola oil for frying lets customers taste real food.

Quick service lunches allow customers to order at the counter and get served at their tables. Evening service includes wait staff at the tables.

The Kabaras will celebrate their 20 year anniversary with free cake and custard as a thank you to their customers.

“Thanks to staff over the past 20 years,” Andrew Kabara said. “We couldn't have done it without them.”

Though known for its hamburgers, the Red Horse Grill serves everything from deli sandwiches to carb-free diet plates.

The Red Horse is open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
