Hello and Welcome back! You may remember last month when I visited the Pioneer Woman Mercantile for the first time in Pawhuska, OK. I went with my parents and we shopped and had breakfast. Once I got home, I was regretting not checking out the upstairs candy/bakery more as well as not sticking around for lunch because the lunch menu looked soooo good. When my friend Karyl saw that I had gone, she texted me and said that we have to set plans for the next trip immediately. So we did, and I have to say the lunch was even better than breakfast!
On our way there this time, we took a small detour just to take a sneak peak at the original Drummond home. It wasn’t open, but we snapped some quick pics and may head to check it out on our next visit. I love those stripes!
We got to the Mercantile around 9:30 and spent the first hour shopping and visiting the bakery/candy counter upstairs. I resisted buying anything in the shop this time, but I did grab a couple of things upstairs at the candy counter. Since it was the day before Valentines, I decided to pick up some taffy for my kiddos teachers.
They have some of the yummiest looking pastries up here. They had sample cookies, and sure enough, they were wonderful.
I may have also grabbed a couple of candy bars. Maybe. Not for sure.
About 10:30 we headed downstairs to get in line for lunch. Just as I suspected there was already a line. We were seated shortly after 11 and it was a nice day, so the wait wasn’t so bad. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 sandwiches.
To start off, we got the olive bread and queso dip as appetizers, both of which were phenomenal.
I got the Brisket Reuben, which was great. Of course, by this time I was stuff so most of it came home, but it was still so good.
As good as my sandwich was, it was not as good as Karyl’s Marlboro Man sandwich, which was juicy and peppery and perfect. This sandwich is named for the Pioneer Woman’s husband, who she calls the Marlboro Man. So cute. This picture certainly does not do the sandwich justice. I can’t believe how tender that prime rib was. The homemade chips were fantastic as well. No wonder it’s his favorite!
After lunch, we walked around and peeked into the kitchen. I love a restaurant with an open kitchen, it feels like they aren’t hiding anything gross ;). I just love the swanky/industrial look.
I failed to mention in my last post that they have a great grab and go counter as well. Look at those sandwiches! If I had any room in my belly left at all, I would have grabbed a couple to go. It’s like Jimmy John’s on crack.
Okay, that is about it for our second trip. Want to read about my first trip, and see all the things this post left out? Head over HERE.
Thanks for stopping by!
