Hello to all. As you already know, I’m the husband of foodie by day and food blogger by night Cassi Peters. As an Air Force pilot, I’m either traveling to all ends of the earth, or here at home in Norman doing odd jobs. Today, I am taking a literary break from the norm and writing about my lunch experience on a beautiful spring break day..
I was out and about near midday bound to retrieve my suit from a local alterations shop, located next door to Penny Hill Deli. The timing couldn’t have been better for my taste buds. The alterations shop was packed full prom dress clientele who helped guide my fate. Not wanting to brave the drama packed waiting area, I quickly retreated to the oasis know as Penny Hill Deli.
I walked a few steps to the South and entered a place resembling a hybrid between a sandwich shop an OU sports museum and a homage to everything Anti-Longhorn (see pictures). For a Deli, Penny Hill has an impressive menu including Subs, Grilled sandwiches, numerous hot dogs, and the almighty Frito pie. Deciding to go with my other-than-Oklahoma roots, I chose the California Club. It took a normally fast eater 30 minutes to consume my delicious fare due to me studying the memorabilia-laden walls between bites.
Even if you’re not an OU fan, Penny Hills Deli is a must because of its scrumptious, time- tested menu, diverse enough to suite any preference. If you are an OU fan, you may be there long enough for two meals.
