Dining Guide: The Cow Calf-Hay
Family is business and business is family for the four Blevins brothers, who now live together with their families on 14 acres in Edmond after teaming up to create the City Bites chain of restaurants we all know and love.
Today, the four entrepreneurs – Brad, Gary, Mike, and Aaron – have City Bites smoothly running on auto-pilot so they can focus on their newest project, The Cow Calf-Hay. That’s right, even the “Café” name is quirky.
With the same atmosphere of peculiar fun found inside City Bites, The Cow continues to reflect the creativity and uniqueness of the Blevins brothers, from the saddle-shaped seats to the name itself.
In August, The Cow Calf-Hay (3409 Wynn Drive) opened in Edmond at 33rd and South Broadway. Famous for their big juicy burgers and giant onion rings, the brothers proudly proclaim The Cow is for the “average Oklahoman – not the person who’s looking to get a little salad with no dressing,” says General Manager
The Cow dishes up certified Black Angus chuck hamburgers and the “world’s best onion rings,” says Blevin, who cooks the food right alongside the four brothers themselves. While the quality of hamburger meat and the classic items will never change, he also promises an “ever-evolving menu” to keep things fresh and interesting. “Once you’re there, you’ll always come back,” he promises.
The Cow Calf-Hay is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Special Friday hours are extended from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. to accommodate live entertainment, played by any local Edmondite possessing musical talent and a hunger for a cheeseburger.
