Neighborhood Eats: Red Rock Canyon Grill

Local branches of this Oklahoma-based chain are filled with Southwestern accents. Some dishes nod in that direction; others are more standard chain fare—spinach-and-artichoke dip, crab cakes.

What to get: The rotisserie chicken is flavorful and juicy, and meat on the barbecue ribs falls off the bone, so try the Cluck-n-Oink platter. Don’t miss the jalapeño-studded cornbread, baked and served in a skillet. The short-smoked salmon and desserts are less rewarding.
