Monday Night at the Boomerang Grille


If you haven't been on a Monday, then you just haven't been to Norman's Boomerang Grille. Monday's are special because from 5:00 to 9:00pm they serve "All You Can Eat Chicken Tenders." These gently breaded and fried gems really are tender and are the house specialty.

The Boomerang Grille has been at 2100 West Main Street in Norman for a really long time. It's one of the places a visitor should try. Come on in with Me and the Mrs. and give it a try.

First thing to do is find a seat. You won't need a waitress for that. The "All You Can Eat Chicken Tenders" comes with your choice of two sides, so check out the menu. We like like the steamed veggies, onion rings and baked beans. A fully-dressed baked potato is really nice too.

Once you've decided, pick up the red "hotline" phone at the table and call in your order.


While you wait there's the most popoular portraiture in Norman - paintings of our Hiesman Trophy winning football players, and a couple of televisions tuned to sports.


The kitchen will ring you back on the red "hotline" phone when everything is ready. All you need to do is go to the counter, pay the cashier and collect your food.



Get your drinks yourself and pickup some silverware along the way too. Distribute the plates nd enjoy!



Every so often, someone will walk by with a basket full of chicken tenders and some tongs. Just say how many you'd like, and they get you all fixed up.

See you at the Boomerang Grille sometime?

I love the phone! We dont get phones in restaurants in the UK, but chicken tenders, is that bits of the chicken you dont normally eat, like sweetbreads?!?

Megan said...

Hi Everybody!

I love to visit the Boomerang, but have to limit myself. Miss Sunshine says that I need to behave and eat better. Of course, she is right. Chicken tenders are pieces of chicken breasts that are lightly battered and deep fried. It locks in the juices and cooks fast. My state is a southern state, so we have a cultural belief that everything tastes better fried.

Dang... you get to order via telephone?

I could really have some fun with that.

Neat place!

Well, um...are those SOONERS on the wall? Because I don't know if a Cornhusker could actually go in there and not turn to stone or something...

Suzanne said...

Well you know me, I'm a vegetarian, so all the sides look amazing! Poor little chickens. That place is terrific. The whole concept is amazing. I love the phone and believe it or not, I love the art!

I'm hungry. Gotta go eat.
