Thread: Tulsa must eats without equal in OKC

  1. Default Tulsa must eats without equal in OKC

    Going to find myself in T-town quite a bit this spring. I find the overall food scene here in the City to be better, but what restaurant do you hit there because you can't get a dish or experience its equal here in the City?

    Siegi's Sausage Factory... Get a Sausage Sampler, because their sausage is so good even the German restaurant in OKC serves them, my favorite is the Kasewurst.

    I enjoy the Jagerschnitzel so much I've never tried any other entree on the menu and I sub spaetzle for the fries. I did have a bite of my fiance's Holzefeller on my last visit and it was an interesting, and tasty, sandwich.

    And if there are any left.... Don't pass up a Snickerdoodle.... They are for sale out in the grocery area but they go fast.

    Some of my favorites:
    Downtown: Peacemaker, La Tertulia, Amelia's, Sissourou's, Chimera, Lowood, The French Hen
    Riverview: Tacos x Mezcal, Dalessandro's, FarmBar, BurnCo (sadly this location recently had a fire so it may be several months before they reopen - great BBQ)
    Cherry Street: Palace Cafe, Nola's, Smoke, Prossimo, Kilkenny's
    Brookside: Oren, Ol' Vine, Keo, Blue Moon
    Utica Square: Stonehorse Cafe, Wild Fork, Queenie's

    Mother Road Market on 11th has some good options all in one place, also Gambill's right next door. The Sand Bar is right on the river close to downtown, not the best food but a fun setting especially at sunset.

    "Uniquely Tulsa" places are Coney I-Lander (downtown and Brookside locations are the best), Ike's Chili, Claud's Hamburgers, Weber's Root Beer and The Spudder. Also have to throw a shout out to an amazing little British pub tucked into a neighborhood in South Tulsa called The White Lion.

    Wow that would be a nice option to have.

    Our best downtown is "The Vault" occupying old drive thru bank building, Sisserou's for Caribbean, Atlas Grill for breakfast, Nola's and Smoke, Laffa for Mediterranean and Middle Eastern (our best favorite), Antoinette's Baking Company in the evening when they put out their fresh baked pies (or anytime they're open for sweet goodies), and agree with BG918 for the rest.

    I'm sure everyone from Tulsa would say Quiktrip, since they worship that place

    They make a mean double decker club sandwich on grain bread.

    FarmBar was also damaged in the BurnCo fire.... Last I heard they would only be closed 3-4 weeks.

    I remember liking the vibe of Elote when I went there years ago.

    Yes White River is awesome. Some of the best scallops I’ve ever had including trips to the coasts.

    It has a cool vibe and pretty good drinks but there’s definitely better Mexican food in town.

    This is pretty funny and kinda true lol. When I mention Oncue all my tulsa friends act like theres some massive disparity between the two but if you took the logos off Id have trouble telling them apart haha.

    ^lol, yes. A gas station is a gas station to me, and all the modern chains are basically the same.

    To answer the thread, most of my favorites have been mentioned, but to be more specific:
    Brunch at Tacos x Mezcal is surprisingly good. My other favorite brunch spot is the Vault downtown.
    The shrimp rolls at Peacemaker are a go-to for me. Their shrimp is flown in fresh from the gulf, they bake their own amazing bread, and the house chips are awesome. The lobster roll is an experience if you want to throw down some money.
    Nola's has this amazing shrimp gri-gri dish that I just absolutely crave every now and then.
    Kilkenny's is the best pub in the state.

    El Arepaso Venezuelan Cafe in south Tulsa (91st & I think Yale). You can get some good Colombian food around OKC, but I haven't found anything that specifically does Venezuelan. Arepas in Colombia are served differently than arepas in Venezuela, and that's what gets it for me.

    While this isn't necessarily unique to Tulsa, the first "wet burrito" I had was at El Rio Verde in Tulsa and was fantastic. I believe we have some options here in OKC, but that was the first time I had heard of them.

    This state has good Steak, BBQ, Burgers, Mexican, Tex Mex (though I take great issue with the so called "queso" in the OKC area and Ted's is terrible), Pub Food, Sushi and many types of Asian food everywhere. For the most part I will leave all that out.

    Kai Burmese at 71st and Lewis - Burmese
    Savistano's at 106th and Memorial - Chicago style pizza
    Bodean's Seafood and Market at 51st and Harvard - Fresh fine dining seafood, flown in daily
    The French Hen in the Vast Building in the Greenwood District - Classic French
    Laffa Medi-Eastern at Archer and Main in the Arts District - Middle Eastern and Israeli
    Helen of Troy in The Farm at 51st and Sheridan - Middle Eastern (the owner/chef is Iranian)
    Villa Ravenna in The Farm at 51st and Sheridan - Authentic Italian
    Mondo's Italian on Brookside at 35th and Peoria - Authentic New York style Italian
    Duet Jazz in the Arts District, 1st and Detroit - Jazz bar and restaurant
    Juniper in the Blue Dome district at 3rd and Elgin - Farm to table restaurant
    La Tertulia in the Blue Dome district at 2nd and Detroit - New Mexican restaurant from James Beard winning chef
    White Lion at 71st and Yale - Authentic British Pub

    I will say that while Tulsa has lots of good Vietnamese, Thai, Korean and fusion Asian, we are badly lacking in authentic regional Chinese cuisines, all we have is Americanized Chinese. What does OKC have in that area?

    It sounds like Tulsa has a much better seafood scene than OKC. I’ll need to explore more up there. Only been to Bonefish Grille.

    I'll second that - their pig ears and duck tongues are pretty good. Szechuan Story is another that's mentioned as truly authentic and very good. We haven't been yet, but plan to go shortly.
