Go West Restaurant — still going strong

By on January 11, 2012

Genius chef Doug Atkinson left long ago but Go West still soldiers on. And they’re doing a great job! Some of the entrees are the same, some have been tweaked a bit, and some are new. All are in the flamboyant cowboy style which made Go West famous. The cowboy-themed decor’s the same too.

Thanks to owner Johnny Wimpy, the welcome is as warm as ever. Even warmer was the soup, a fiery (and lovely) cream of jalapeno. The bread platter is so good you’re tempted to fill up on that. I got one of the new entrees. Campfire Steak Medallions ($18).

 

 

 

 

Lovely bits of beef tenders first smoked then grilled covered with a peppery mushroom demi-glace. Lightly fried potatoes were great too, as were the beans. My friends got salads. Here’s one.
 

 

That’s a Ranch Steak Salad ($13). The dessert tray had fewer offerings than before, but they looked great. But we were too full to try any.

 

I think the food was better when Doug was at the helm. But there’s still some fine entrees available, and I plan to go back for more.

 

 

Here’s my review (with lots of photos) of Go West in its glory days early last year:

Born in NYC, age 0, on my birthday. College in Oxford at age 16. Law School in New Haven, Conn. 6 years travel in Africa and Asia. Haven’t done much lately. Still, I’m the only Tulsa member of the little-known Omega Society. www.theomegasociety.com I speak enough Chinese to order food not on any English menu. Spanish French Italian too (not fluently but food-ently) My favorite restaurant is Jean-Georges in New York. But those NYC chefs would sell their soul to get the produce available from the farms around Inola. “A writer writes alone.

Without you to hear them, my words are worth less than silence.
