What are the best Tulsa food experiences?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

When it comes to Tulsa’s tastiest offerings, the competition is fierce. Still, these restaurants step to the plate with the sort of deliciousness that can’t be overlooked.

1. At popular Burn Co. Barbecue, Tulsans start lining up about 10:30 a.m. to eat some of the best barbecue in a state. All of the meat (including baby back ribs and chopped brisket) is cooked indoors on Hasty-Bake charcoal ovens, an iconic grill that have been sold here since 1948.

2. At Prhyme Steakhouse in downtown Tulsa, chef and owner Justin Thompson lets diner’s choose from a variety of steaks, including American grass-fed and 30-day dry-aged beef.

3. Bodean Seafood Restaurant & Market not only supplies fresh seafood to many restaurants around Tulsa, but chef Trevor Tack, who joined the kitchen in 2013, has brought a sense of creativity to the pan-seared Alaskan halibut, Atlantic swordfish and other menu items.

4. There are a couple of reasons Tallgrass Prairie Table has created a buzz among foodies in Tulsa. While its location in the heart of the historic Blue Dome entertainment district is one, the fact it serves modern American cuisine with a focus on farm-to-table dishes is the most scrumptuous.

5. For those loving the whole Mad Men, mid-19th-century trend, The Vault is a tasty time capsule. The restaurant, which is housed in a building that was once the First National Auto Bank, crafts wonderful cocktails and serves the sort of classic American fare that would put a smile on Don Draper’s face.

6. Polo Grill is a fine-dining icon in the city. Steaks are the stars of the menu — including a 22-ounce rib-eye and a "smokehouse" filet of beef tenderloin — but don't miss the delicious Prince Edward Island mussels with sweet vermouth broth, tomatoes and cinnamon.
