If you're worried about a lack of variety in restaurants when you move to Tulsa, let me assure you there are plenty to choose from in our City. Fast food, buffet, fine dining, drive-ins, Mom & Pop, diners, I could go on and on. They are all here.
Today, I'll let you in on some of my favorites, my daughter and I head to when we're in the mood for a meal out. Now remember folks, she's 7 years old. A fine dining review will have to come later.
Zios: Great Italian chain restaurant started here in Tulsa. If you've got the kids and want a quick, easy sit down meal in a fun atmosphere this one's a winner. Their house dressing is great. And, I am a connoisseur of balsamic dressings! Nice big portions, good kids menu, and nice wine list. Two locations in Tulsa, 8112 S. Lewis Ave. and 7111 S. Mingo Road.
Rib Crib: I have never seen my daughter devour ribs the way she does at this place. And, this is a picky eater! When I ask her if she wants barbecue, this is the first place she requests! I personally enjoy the HUGE potato stuffed with chopped barbecue, cheese, and anything else you want. You better wear your elastic pants here!! Rib Crib has 20 locations in Oklahoma. To find a location near you call (918) 712-RIBS (7427) Clever, huh?
5&Diner: This is a fun one to visit. This diner is like taking a step back to the 1950s. The staff is dressed in poodle skirts and bobbie socks, and there is miniature juke boxes at each table with music from the 50s and 60s. They've got great chocolate chip pancakes and don't forget old fashioned malts and milkshakes! They're located right by the Myers Duren Harley Davidson shop on Memorial at 3641 S. Memorial.
