A popular sports grill from Oklahoma City is planning a new location in the area.
Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name and Lumpy’s Sports Grill plans to be that place. They have their eyes set on a new location that’s in the works at S.W. 15th and Mustang Rd.
Lumpy’s Sports Bar & Grill is your neighborhood bar where you can get amazing food, listen to live music, play a game of pool, and have a refreshing drink.
“It’s your neighborhood Cheers. People know each other. It’s like family,” said Lumpy’s Sports Grill Founder Chris Cochrane.
Lumpy’s started back in 1997 and now has 3 Oklahoma City locations. It’s 21 to enter and the clientele is all ages. Lumpy’s is a great place to join friends for sports, drinks and a lot of good food.
“Our food is tremendous. We have ribeyes, pizza, burgers, a ton of appetizers and all kinds of entrees. We also do a popular Sunday brunch with NFL football. The food is good,” said Cochrane.
Lumpy’s also holds a lot of family events. They host a lot of special occasions and wedding receptions.
“We have a lot of events you would have in any family or any neighborhood,” said Cochrane.
He’s excited about the new Lumpy’s location and can’t believe all the growth in the area.
“I was just shocked when I started looking into the area and I thought wow that’s really great. Mustang has really come of age. It’s not what I remember it as. The school systems are good and it looks like a good neighborhood to be,” said Cochrane.
Lumpy’s has a large following all over the metro area and is highly recommended by many customers.
“A super fun place to hang out with friends! Karaoke was happening while we visited. Guest were friendly and interacting with others, so it felt like a neighborhood bar where everyone knows your name. They serenaded me for my birthday. The service was great and the jalapeños with cream cheese were out of this world amazing,” said Customer Shannon Parker.
Lumpy’s is looking to open sometime before the new year in the Mustang Crossing Shopping Center.
“We’ve been working on it for a while and we’re making good progress. We’re hoping to be open right towards the end of the year,” said Cochrane.
