Take your pick of the prime rib, steak, shrimp or catfish at Backdoor Steakhouse in Blair. Out of town guests join locals of this small southwest Oklahoma community just to enjoy a meal here, where you can start your experience by grabbing a handful of complimentary peanuts and tossing the shells on the floor when you’re done. Even the sides – dinner rolls, baked potatoes and dinner salads – routinely draw raves from diners here.
