Doug’s Peach Orchard located just across the Red River at 27677 U.S. Highway 81 in Terral, Okla., has survived the test of time to remain a favorite among locals since its beginning in 1948.
It is not uncommon for North Texans to take a day trip just for a refreshing glass of tea and some delicious bites. If you’re local, you know those bites won’t include any peaches like the name suggests. Instead, the hometown favorite derives its name from the peach orchard that used to sit where the restaurant now does, serving up catfish and other fried foods.
If you’re not local, let us introduce you to the restaurant that makes it worth the drive – your taste buds will thank us later. Driving across the Red River, it would be easy to get caught up in the scenery and miss this local dive, which appears nothing more than a hole-in-the-wall to some- but I mean that affectionately, it’s the kind of place you know will greet you with all the southern comfort food you could want and fine hospitality at its best.
