OK 115

Highway Review:
OK 115 is an almost 60-mile long state highway that is probably best known as the road to Meers. Meers is a three-building town in southwest Oklahoma just north of the Wichita Mountains that is the home to the Meers burger joint, which uses buffalo meat and some secret recipes to make some of the best buffalo burgers I've ever tasted! Their cherry cobbler isn't too bad either!

Back to the highway, OK 115 starts out at U.S. 62 in Cache. It heads north for a few miles before it enters the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge, where all OK 115 signage is stripped. The speed limit, 65 mph before entering the wildlife refuge, now falls to 45. Unsigned OK 115 heads east on unsigned OK 49 for a couple miles at the intersection where the brown guide sign points east to Interstate 44 and Lawton. Then OK 115 heads north at the brown guide sign that says "Meers-4." After leaving the wildlife refuge a couple miles north of OK 49, the OK 115 signage makes a triumphant return. Meers is just ahead and if you blink, you'll probably miss it, and you'll also miss out on one of Oklahoma's most renowned restaurants. After several curves in the road, OK 115 heads due north once again and adds OK 19 signage to it for a mile. At OK 9, OK 115 heads west for about a mile before heading north on its own in the town of Mountain View. One town, Cowden, and about fifteen miles later, OK 115 ends at OK 152.
