The Restaurants & Brand Promise

Apple Barrel Cafe started in Bixby, Oklahoma as a family-owned restaurant graciously serving homemade food with extra large portions and top-quality ingredients since 2002. With our success, thanks to our loyal customers we expanded to our surrounding communities. 

Although we have expanded from our humble 2002 beginning in Bixby, Oklahoma, and added extended families to join the Apple Barrel brand - we ensure consistency in the same quality food, menu, image, and brand across all restaurants. If ever any of our customers view differences at any of our locations, we welcome constructive feedback. We will continue to provide superior food quality and quantity at an affordable price even as the ever-changing market evolves. 

Our brand promise is to provide a friendly welcoming home-away-from-home cafe where our guests are cared for like family while enjoying real, home-style, high-quality, fresh food with large portions at a cheap price. Also, to be active in the communities surrounding our restaurants and give back to those in need within those communities.

Apple Barrel Café prides itself on quality food, daily specials, price value, extra large portions, and breakfast all day, every day. Our beef is aged, certified premium U.S.D.A. choice, and all of our ingredients are of the highest quality and prepared fresh in our kitchens from scratch every day. We also offer vegetarian, gluten-free, and other special diet options - Check out our menu options.

We also make items by request even if it is not on the menu. 

Whether you are new to Apple Barrel or a long-time customer who we call family, we look forward to seeing you soon!
