STILLWATER, OK: – Local restaurant Freddie Paul’s Steakhouse will be hosting a visit from
America’s Best Restaurants (ABR) in early September 2023.
America’s Best Restaurants, a national media and marketing company focusing on bringing
attention to local, independently-owned restaurants, will bring its ABR Roadshow to the
restaurant on September 7th. Popular dishes will be highlighted, along with an extensive
on-camera interview with owners Brian and Joie Saliba about the restaurant’s special place in
the community. The episode will be aired extensively on social media channels at a later date.
Freddie Paul’s is one of several family-owned steakhouses that garnered a foothold in
Oklahoma over the last 74 years - all independently owned. Freddie Saliba, Brian’s grandfather,
began the family dynasty in the 1940s with the opening of Freddie’s Steakhouse in Drumright,
which closed at the end of 2022.
Saliba wanted to name his location after his father, Paul, who later was the operator of the
Drumright Freddie’s. Brian opened Freddie Paul’s in 2001. He studied at the School of Hotel
and Restaurant Administration at Oklahoma State University, and gained experience at such
iconic dining destinations as the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia and The Mansion on Turtle
Creek in Dallas.
While the most popular items on the menu which have been served since the first day of
business are the bone-in ribeye and the pecan-crusted halibut, the Freddie’s restaurants set
themselves apart by also serving Lebanese specialties such as cabbage rolls, tabbouli, and
Saliba is proud of his family lineage that has been “making Oklahomans happy with steak” for
nearly 75 years.
America’s Best Restaurants will be filming on location on Thursday, September 7 from 2 pm to 5
pm CST. The press is invited to attend. The restaurant’s finished episode premiere date will be
announced on their Facebook page and will be featured on America’s Best Restaurants’
