The Fourth of July typically is a time for grilling all manner of summer holiday favorites, such as barbecue, hot dogs and burgers.

For grill masters, we found some grill-ready items perfect for a holiday gathering. For those who don’t own a grill or want to take it easy on the Fourth, we have you covered, too.

Takeout options from area restaurants probably are about as numerous as there are restaurants. We found some choices that go beyond pizza and fried chicken you might want to consider. Some have order deadlines, so it’s good to plan early.


107 N. Boulder Ave., 918-587-2821

Bag up a bundle of coneys from the place that started it all in Tulsa. They come with or without cheese, chili or onions, and they microwave extremely well. You also can buy them deconstructed if you wish to put them together yourself. The store is open from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Friday.


4651 W. Kenosha St., Broken Arrow


On the higher end of the food spectrum for the Fourth are lobster and shrimp rolls from Bonefish Grill. They are tossed with the restaurant’s signature Bang Bang sauce and served in lightly toasted baguettes. A family bundle that serves up to five diners comes with a side, cookies and fresh bread for $45. Other family bundles feature Bang Bang shrimp tacos, chicken tacos, grilled chicken, grilled shrimp and grilled salmon for $29.90 to $39.90.


304 S. Elgin Ave.


House-made sausages from Fassler Hall are great for picnics and backyard get-togethers. They can be ordered cooked with special toppings or grill ready. Grill-ready sausages are $9 a pound. Don’t forget the duck fat fries. The store will close at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 4.
