Kamp’s Market & Deli

· No Comments

If you live in Northwestern Oklahoma City, especially if you’re a student at Oklahoma City University, you’ve probably heard of Kamp’s Market & Deli.  This little store is located at NW 25th street and Classen.  The outside of Kamp’s doesn’t look like much—it looks like it could use a good coat of paint, actually…but don’t judge this book by its cover.

The inside of Kamp’s looks nothing like the outside.  It’s very comfortable, and the atmosphere is very relaxing.  You may see a few students scattered around the place studying, and there may even be some live musical entertainment if you come at the right time. 

To order any of Kamp’s great sandwiches, wraps, salads, burgers, and other treats, just walk up to the counter, check out the menu, and make your selection.  They’ll call you when your order is done (which is usually not very long).  When I was there last, I had a great grilled chicken caesar salad, and my friend had the portabella roast sandwich.  Both were very reasonably priced.  In fact, there are many meals for less than $5.00. 

The market part of “Kamp’s Market & Deli” can be a bit misleading.  There’s not really a market any longer—there used to be, but when new owners took over Kamp’s several years ago, they slowly began phasing out the grocery store.  Now it features a small stage for live entertainment and a small dance floor for those wanting to get into the groove.

I have to admit that I miss the grocery store part of Kamp’s a bit.  It was nice to be able to grab a few choice cuts of meat and other necessities without going to a large supermarket.  There are few little grocery stores left in Oklahoma City these days, and it’s kind of a shame that it looks like the remaining ones may not be here for much longer.  But at least Kamp’s still has great food.  While the groceries may be gone, I have a feeling Kamp’s will continue to be a great OKC tradition for years to come.

Here are some other blogs that talk about Kamp’s Deli.
