The Old Spaghetti Factory and Oklahoma City Thunder

Gets a Groovy Medicare Jet-Setters Review

We were going to grab a bite to eat before heading to the Thunder game. I screamed as Medicare Jet-Setter Neil Johnson turned the corner. Startled he turned to me and asked, “What’s wrong?”

“Everything is right,” I answered. “We just passed The Old Spaghetti Factory. I didn’t know there was one in downtown OKC anymore. You know Spaghetti is my favorite food.”

He turned the car around, and we headed toward the Old Spaghetti Factory located at 1 South Mickey Mantle Drive, Oklahoma City, OK 73104.

The décor is unique and leads to a good conversation about the antique lighting, colorful booths, and even an old-fashioned trolley car to dine in. The Old Spaghetti Factory is perfect for a family event or a romantic evening out. We sat at the beautiful bar. We felt like we had walked back in time.

I couldn’t believe the bargain prices. For $12.99, I could get a three-course meal. I chose Spaghetti covered in a mushroom sauce, minestrone soup, or you can choose a salad, hot fresh baked bread, and topped off with a scoop of spumoni or vanilla ice cream.

The taste test was everything I was hoping for and more. The soup came out hot, with a nice spicy hint, and the vegetables in it were crisp and not soggy. The bread came fresh from the oven, warm, toasty, and yummy. My spaghetti noodles were tender yet firm enough not to be mushy—the perfect noodle. I did not have room in my stomach for the spumoni, so I must go back and eat it first. The meal made me say, “Squisito.”

Squisito is an Italian word that means you want to pay someone the highest compliment for their cooking.

On to the Thunder Game. Neil’s favorite game of the year is when the Chicago Bulls come to town. A friend of Neil’s arranged for us to get tickets. Neil is a lifelong Bulls fan, and I am a Thunder fan. We had so much fun. I am not even a sports nut; however, the high energy in the Pay Com Center got me revved up, and I was yelling at the top of my lungs. The game was a nail-biter; who would come out the winner?

There were many activities to watch and many that made me laugh aloud. I highly recommend going to a game to get your mind off your troubles and fully immerse yourself in the moment.

The workers were constantly sanitizing everything while we were there. One of my favorite things was watching two junior high girls in front of us, dancing in their seats, eating pizza, and taking selfies all at the same time.

I got such a kick out of the games involving the fans that we could see on the jumbotron. When the camera would sweep the audience, people would realize they were on the screen; they would almost always make a funny expression with their mouths and get so excited for their fifteen seconds of fame.

For a fun evening of food, fun, dancing in your seat, and screaming at the top of your lungs, go to Brick Town, have an excellent meal for $12.99 at the Old Spaghetti Factory, then attend a Thunder game.
