Hungry Frog Diner Located at NW 10th and Penn, Hungry Frog is a good blue-collar diner. Not great, but is was good. I had the Frogger Special. Basically an open face burger with chili and beans along with onions on top. I thought, for what it was, was a little expensive at $7.00. The decorations […]

Just west of Nichols Hills, between May Avenue and Lake Hefner sits the Lakehurst neighborhood. Lakehurst consists of 387 homes built between 1961 and 1977. Lakehurst’ prime location has always made it popular. In the 1960’s, it was the place to go see the Christmas lights! Home sizes range from 1,350 square feet to 4,350 […]
