It's not exactly big news, but at least weirdly interesting. One of those chains that you never see anyone at, but they just won't seem to die, is coming back to Midwest City.

They are supposedly moving in to the old Wendy's on Air Depot next to Aldi. It would be a much smaller location than their old one (that has been 10 different things, but most recently and the most stable being the All American Diner). This is after Wendy's built their new location on 15th St in the Sooner Rose development next to the 2nd Chic-fil-A.

So if Grandy's is your kind of thing, then well, there you go.

Grandy's used to be really good, and I mean back in the early 1990's. The food was good, the service was good, loved the little old ladies coming by to give more rolls, place was clean and decent.

I mean, they had a great idea and a great system and executed it well. Then, later, they started to shoot themselves in the foot and execute themselves.

Typical story about many restaurant chains over the years.

Their food has definitely changed. For instance. Years ago the chicken fried steak and egg breakfast biscuit was to die for. The biscuit is still good. The egg is still a real egg. But the meat used to be a real breaded patty. Now it's a breaded something that might come from Sam's.

I stopped going when they changed over to turkey bacon.

I didnt really mind it as a kid (but never asked for it either), it always felt like the fast-food/school cafeteria version of what you get at your Grandma's house. Chicken friend "steak" or whatever those frozen patties really are. Im pretty sure the mashed potatoes are from a box. It was never bad, i just never felt like it was so good, that I would rather go there than cook those things myself for real.

I went to Dollywood this past summer and they had a restaurant there that I would compared to Grandy's style of food. But it was done the way I think i'd wish Grandy's was done now. Real chicken fried steak (or chicken), roasted potatoes so they can't come from a box, carrots, etc. All the normal "country cooking" stuff, but feeling less like it comes on a plastic tray, if you know what I mean.

I love Grandy's, the one in Moore is still open and good. And they still have the breakfast buffet, lol.

The Grandy's in MWC is now open. I had a hankering for Taco Casa and I could smell delicious fried chicken wafting across Air Depot.
