Where to Eat in Tulsa, Oklahoma

As you know from my post on our visit to Philbrook Museum last week, we just got back from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The original purpose of our road trip was to go see my favourite band, Hanson and enjoy their beer and music festival, The Hop Jam.
We were pleasantly surprised to find out that Tulsa, Oklahoma is a hidden gem of a city. 
Our family loved everything about Tulsa from the amazing arts and music community, to meeting the friendliest people we've ever met and all the delicious restaurants and cafes. 
I thought I would put together this little guide of places you need to eat while in Tulsa.
There are so many restaurants that I didn't get a chance to stop in this time around {for my Hanson fan friends - see what I did there ;) } but we loved Tulsa so much we are heading back for another family trip next spring!


Antoinette Baking Company is the cutest little cafe located in the Brady Arts District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 
I wish I had photographed the interior of this cafe because it is so charming.
The staff are some of the kindest people I have ever met and their lattes are to die for! 
The kids loved all the fresh baked goods to choose from each day (they also offer gluten free options for those wondering) and the adults enjoyed their hot breakfast menu.



Andolini's Pizzeria is an Italian pizzeria located on Cherry Street in Tulsa, Ok.
I stopped here with my friends for lunch one day and was blown away by their gourmet pizza. 
I can't remember the name of the slice I ordered but it had a crust that was crispy on the outside and the perfect amount of doughy on the inside {my fave} and was topped with cherry tomatoes, black olives, mozzarella, drizzled with olive oil and rock salt.
They also have the cutest little gelato bar that I didn't get a chance to try out.
{totally on my list for next visit}


Hurts Donut Co. is a must stop if you love donuts as much as my kids do - which is A LOT.
The staff in Hurts Donut Co. were super friendly and helpful. 
There are a huge variety of donuts to choose from to appeal to everyone's taste buds and the interior design is on point!

Banh Mi. Kimchi Fries. Fried Rice.

I can't even put into words how much I LOVE Lone Wolf Tulsa.
I had the shrimp rice bowl and it was beyond amazing.
From the presentation of the food to the amazing flavours - it is so damn good! 
And like all the other places I've mentioned above, the employees are SO kind and patient.
It took me a good 5 minutes to decide on an order because everything looked so good I had a hard time narrowing it down, and the staff was totally cool with giving me time to take it all in! 


I feel like I need to be 100% honest here and show my nerdy fan girl side for this restaurant. 
I totally dragged my family to Caz's Chowhouse because Zac Hanson sings about it in one of my favourite Hanson songs "I don't want to go home". 
The lyrics go like this:

"In Caz's Corner Bar 
At Carnegie Hall
I hear the people say 
I don't want to go home" 

Anyways, lets get back on the topic of food. 
I totally understand now why the people in Hanson's song don't want to go home haha
Caz's Chowhouse is absolutely DELICIOUS and just like every where else I went in Tulsa - the people serving you are SO kind.
We went a couple times while we were in Tulsa but the only picture I snapped was of my Cobb salad which tasted just as delicious, if not more, as it looks in the photo. 
Their chicken fingers are also AMAZING.
{yes - I still order chicken fingers as a 29 year old woman - don't judge}


Tallys Diner is the famous diner on Route 66 - rated Tulsa's best diner. 
Was it as good as it was hyped up to be? Absolutely!! 
We came on a Sunday morning so it was extremely busy but the staff were super kind and informative and the food is everything you would want in typical diner food.
The atmosphere made me feel like I was on the set of Grease and I wish I had taken more photos! 


I have The Tavern to thank for introducing me to Hanson Brothers Beer.
I honestly had no desire to try it before I went in here {shocking, I know} but the server really sold it to me and you guys - it's actually a super decent beer! 
The Tavern was also an awesome place to stop for lunch.
The food is awesome pub food and the decor is modern meets classic which I love! 

The last place I need to mention is Ida Red's General Store.
While not a restaurant, my kids would probably tell you this was their favourite place to eat haha
They have the best selection of candy and milkshakes.
If you have a sweet tooth you will looooooove this place.
The people working in the store are some of the kindest people you will ever come across!

EDIT: A few places I absolutely loved and recommend but did not get photos are Mexicali and Prairie.  Also - I totally got off track with my clean eating on this trip but it was worth every single bite!!!

  1. I spilled my food from Tallys Diner all over my new cloud couch and I was so upset! Thankfully, I had a carpet cleaning scheduled and they also do Furniture Cleaning in Tulsa, OK so it all worked out. Haha thanks for sparking that memory!
