There are a few locations of Jo’s, but this one downtown has pretty much everything you might want to eat for breakfast or lunch (everything from pancakes to tacos to burgers). It’s open until 9pm, so post up all day and get some work done, or stop by for something quick. If you’re staying a while, try to snag a table inside because the Grackles outside are next-level aggressive.

Royal Blue Grocery
Royal Blue is a grocery/bodega/deli with a few locations. We like the downtown location best for lunch.
Lonesome Dove Western Bistro
If every stereotypical oil magnate had a restaurant, they would all look like this. Come here to get deals done and eat lots of MEEEEEATS.
