Okarche, OK — Hometown of Carter Chevrolet
Split between Canadian and Kingfisher counties, Okarche is a quaint town with a rich history and welcoming atmosphere. The metropolitan area is roughly 1,200 people, making it one of the smaller towns in the area. Nonetheless, the community makes up for its small size with its big personality. Okarche, Oklahoma is just a short drive away from El Reno, Kingfisher, and Oklahoma City, making it the perfect place to get a new car.
First settled by Europeans in the 1830s, the Okarche area was home to several Native American tribes. In fact, after the Civil War, certain parts of the region were allocated for the resettlement of indigenous peoples such as the Cheyenne and Arapaho. The cattle industry was prominent in the nineteenth century, especially after railroads came through the area, but by the 1920s highways cut across the US, including Okarche, and in present times Temtrol has become the major employer.
Featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, this bar is the oldest in Oklahoma. You’ll love the fried chicken—a classic dish in the area. You can also grab a cold brew, fried okra, killer Bar-B-Q, Frito pies, and more. This joint was first established in 1896 by Peter Eischen, and it has survived everything from prohibition to fires. As the cornerstone of the community, you absolutely must stop by Eischen’s if you visit the area.
