Waterloo Road businesses plan for extra busy week

EDMOND — When an estimated 130,000 people start arriving Monday in Edmond for the U.S. Senior Open at Oak Tree National, the food and drink establishments on Waterloo Road will be ready for them.

For local Edmond restaurants, bake shops and coffee shops those preparations are in full force as owners get ready for hopefully their biggest week of the year. Practice rounds for some of golf’s biggest stars age 50 and older start Monday morning and continue through Wednesday. Actual tournament play starts July 10 and continues until a champion claims the title and trophy July 13.

Food and drink places up and down Waterloo Road are especially hopeful for large crowds looking for a spot of hospitality on their way to and from Oak Tree National.

City Limit Donuts at 251 E. Waterloo Road, Ste. 1 (next door to Sonic) is the place to stop for coffee, croissants, sausage rolls and donuts of every kind. They also sell specialty donuts for those who need a sugar high to get started each morning.

Co-owner Jina Lee said they also will deliver with a seven dozen limit and to call ahead at 513-5656 the day before if possible.

“We are having two specials during the Senior (Open),” Lee said. “One special is two dozen donuts for $13.99 and 1 free bag of donut holes. We are also selling a small coffee and one regular donut for $1.39.”

These are specials running only during the U.S. Senior Open from July 7-13.

“Our donut specials are anything with a hole, including glazed and cake, old fashioned, red velvet and double chocolate cake,” Lee said, “and our coffee prices are extremely affordable with a small coffee costing $1.09 and a regular coffee costing $1.39.”

Extended hours for the U.S. Senior Open are 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the owners have extended their days to include Monday through Sunday but only for the tournament.

Owner McKenna Ray of Habañeros at 251 E. Waterloo Road said she has already lined up extra wait staff and is planning lunch and dinner specials.

County Line Bakery owners at 121 E. Waterloo Road are planning several products for the event, and even adding cake by the slice in four to six flavors. They are also tripling the numbers of pies and cookies they normally make with the continued hope of selling out each day.

Muhammad Safdar at IB’s Conoco on the northwest corner of Broadway and West Waterloo Road said he is planning on more business, but he has no idea how much to expect.

“We won’t be running out of anything,” Safdar said. “We will have more products on hand, and we will have everything in abundance including water. I am not going to run out of anything.

“We run lunch specials daily and we will continue doing that for the tournament. We are open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day.”

At Dan’s Pizza at 121 E. Waterloo Road in Edmond, Manager Bryce Miller said, “We expect it to be a little busier than normal.”

Dan’s makes its pizza dough from scratch daily using all hand cut vegetables for toppings to maintain freshness. Buffet hours are 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday and Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday the restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

For those who are looking for a place to cool off during the tournament and don’t want to go far, the restaurant boasts four televisions. Stop by to eat or call in for delivery or carry-out. One large topping pizza for pick-up is $9.25 and two large two toppings for pick-up or delivery are $19.99 with an additional $3 fee for delivery. They also have specialty pizzas and will make them to order. Call 405-359-3900 to place an order.

BBQ at its best can be found at ET’s BBQ at 121 E. Waterloo Road, No. 8 in Edmond.

Night Manager Penny Murphy said, “We plan to stock up on food so we won’t run out.” They also plan on plenty of sides including their famous armadillo eggs (stuffed jalapeño peppers) and smoked cabbage.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

“We plan to feature live music by Champaign Jam on July 3 and July 12,” Murphy said, “and we will be offering a 10 percent discount for people attending the tournament.” To place an order, call 405-330-4343.

Cowgirl Coffee at 121 E. Waterloo Road in Edmond is open 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday and specializes in coffee, breakfast brunch and smoothies. They serve coffee hot or cold in every flavor combination that can be imagined, and if one likes coffee in a big way 32-ounce cups are available.
