For food: Cherry Street or the Brady District has a nice selection of really good local food, I am partial to Kilkenny's Pub fish & chips & Gangus Grill.There is a couple of  really good live music venues they are Cane's Ball Room & the Brady Theater. The Tulsa Zoo and Aquarium is above average.
We like Andolini's Pizza on Cherry Street.  Mondo's Italian on ?? something.  Just off Riverside Drive.

Nashville's food frenzy

USA TODAY says Nashville has the third best local food scene in the country — better than New Orleans and San Francisco. Zagat puts Nashville No. 6 on its list of America’s Next Hot Food Cities.

It seems our appetite for new restaurants is insatiable. More than 120 restaurants opened in Nashville in 2014 and 2015, according to the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp.

Still, it’s hard to get into some of the city's hottest restaurants. Many dining regulars grumble that it can take a week or two to find a reservation at Nashville’s more popular spots.

Vogue magazine recently included the exclusive Catbird Seat — with only 22 seats — on its list of 13 Hardest Restaurant Reservations in America.

I don't think you've got the right perspective about this, Delta.  This is not a big cash cow for Jerry; it is for us.  Well, let's put it this way; we make more money playing two games there than we would hosting a game in Fayetteville one year, then playing the return in College Station the next.  PLUS, we get all of the DFW area exposure and the prestige of playing in the finest football facility in the world every season - both of which are solid recruiting tools.

There's a reason we twisted A&M's arm to sign the extension when we acquiesced on letting them play LSU on Thanksgiving weekend.

This series at JerryWorld is all about what WE want.

Agreed. Ted's reminds me of the microwaved enchilada dinners I'd have in college.

You eaten at Calaveras Grill (Lewis/244)? Used to run Costa Azul in East Tulsa (now a Saxby's) and before that started El Rio Verde in North Tulsa. CGrill is the best incarnation yet - could be elite level dining if they wanted that, but they are happy with lunch counter setting.

Tacos San Pedro (East 21st) is another lunch counter place (order at the counter, they call a number) that is fantastic. Cancun (Lewis/6) is good. Casa San Marcos (21/Garnett) is my latest "find". Soured on El Pollo Gallo (21/Garnett) - what I liked was pretty limited, but a friend swears by it.

Tres Amigos (81/Lewis) has a few traditional dishes on the specialty menu that make it worth going to (basics are not memorable). Similarly, La Hacienda (38/Peoria) has some good items if you know what to order. Bravos Grill (51/Yale) is more well-rounded (broader menu of decent options).

We love El Fagon in Owasso if you happen to drive that way.

I am not partial to the "upscale" Tulsa mexican restaurants outside of Cafe Ole (34/Peoria) which is exceptional with a New Mexico twist.  I am not fond of El Guapo (I may be in the minority) or Mexicali Border Cafe. Both are superior to On the Border (unless it is happy hour and I am happy eating chips and queso + a couple of beers).

Taco Trucks are another matter. They are universally solid, but the quality shifts day to day. Some are convenient after a late night (many are open until 3-4am on the weekend). My wife worries about the kitchen conditions. A media expose (can't remember the outlet) revealed that the top "upscale" restaurants had more health code violations than the taco trucks. LOL

So many of these places are dependent upon the right person prepping the food or being at the helm in the kitchen when you order. The owner of Calaveras Grill told me who to look for in the kitchen for an off-menu item I loved at Costa Azul that they don't make unless you request it. That is what gets frustrating - a cook leaves one place and appears at another spot and the quality at both shifts.

2 things:

A&M can also tell recruits the same thing, exposure in DWF, etc, so it's a wash. And I would tap the breaks on calling that stadium the "finest football facility in the world". Jerry may think it is, but it has lot's of issues. People who live here know it's not all that.

First, Arkansas is the OUT of state school; we do and always have had a nice presence in DFW, and it is not all that far from Fayetteville.  But our presence there cannot compare to that of the Aggies, who probably have 10 times the alumni in the DFW area that we do.  Plus, their location is only a couple of hours from Dallas.  So - yes - they get the same things we do, but they ALREADY have a huge presence in DFW and are one of the cool in-state schools to go to.  We are not.  So we get more BENEFIT out of that exposure than they do.  How is that not obvious?

As for whether or not JerryWorld actually IS the finest Football facility in the world, in the perception of HS recruits (especially those we target), it unquestionably is the most prestigious. And that's all we care about.

We can always hire Hugh Freeze to run our recruiting program. I hear he has some 'out of the pocketbook' ideas that will get you a top 5 recruiting class every year even though all you have to offer at Ole Miss is a gasoline station that has good catfish and a grove with trees that you walk through to the stadium. Sounds like catfish and trees makes the best players in the country 'come a runnin' to become a Rebel Black Bear.

Haven't had a bad item there yet. That said, haven't tried frog legs.

Nor have I tried them at White River Fish Market.

Now, the taco trucks can get pretty entertaining.

Hammett House in Claremore (suburb NE of Tulsa) serves calf fries and turkey fries. Didn't know turkeys were built well enough to have "fries". I have tried neither.
