The weekend is nearly here. You feel like going out to “someplace different” with a few friends. There’s a hankering in your mind for a change of pace and tasty “pub” food comes to mind along with something cold to drink. Suddenly you recall the name Republilc Gastro Pub. A casual eating place, this restaurant keeps 100 hand-drawn brands of beer on tap, stocks 250 select bottles of beer from around the world, and serves a combination English style pub menu designed to appeal to Oklahoman preferences; definitely a win-win combination for a “go to” place with friends.
Tickle your taste buds with a specialty salad; repeat customers often opt for these:
Beef Cob 15
All beef tenderloin, oak-grilled and sliced, diced egg, fresh avocado, fried green tomato, white cheddar cheese, scallions, smoked bacon, and bleu cheese dressing
Ahi tuna, seared, with fresh whole green beans, potato confit, kalamata olives, red onions with a white anchovy vinaigrette
Republic Gastro Pub’s burgers, made with black Angus beef, hand-formed patties, and carefully grilled and served on a toasted pretzel bun. Pub diners enjoy the extensive burger menu and often select:
Republic Burger 8
Caramelized onion, apple wood smoked bacon relish, blue, Gruyère, arugula, and a fried egg
House Made Turkey Burger 7
Field greens, fried green tomato slices, white cheddar cheese, and avocado relish
Pulled Chicken Melt 8

Republic Gastro Pub has many house specials on the menu. Each one is thoughtfully presented in the “pub meal” fashion. These house specialties are just a few of many very popular entrees.
Bock Battered Fish and Chips 14
with fried caper tartar sauce, aged malt vinegar and shoestrings
Bangers and Mash “American” 12

Pub snacks exist in abundance and one that tops the list is Republic Gastro Pub Scotch Egg 8. (The pub creates its own version of the traditional recipe.) Jimmy Ford, a long time OKC resident, says: “I visit the Republic Gastro Pub often. The food is good, the service is excellent and the prices are right.” The pub is open Sunday through Wednesday 11 a.m.–12 a.m. Thursday through Saturday 11 a.m.–1 a.m.
