Ghosthunters tackle spirits at Kendall’s restaurant in Noble

(Continued)

NORMAN —

But, not all of the staff agree there are ghosts.

David Combites has worked in the kitchen at Kendall’s for eight years. He claims nothing has ever happened to him and he chalks it up to the Halloween ghost buzz.

“Joe [a fellow worker] claims that something held the back kitchen door open one time,” Combites said. “I think it was probably just trash stuck in the door.”

Ghost or no ghost, Locke said she no longer works at the restaurant by herself.

“The other day I was sitting in the back room and I kept hearing this dripping noise,” Locke said. “At first I thought someone had left the wall AC on, then I thought the roof was leaking. Finally I said, ‘OK, if this is something supernatural, could you please stop freaking me out.’ And it stopped, which freaked me out even more.”

Clark and Locke both look forward to OKPRI revisiting Kendall’s but in the meantime, Kendall’s will continue to bake cinnamon rolls and serve customers from around the country with super-sized chicken fried steak.
