Dooley’s Angus Inn
Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or just a Monday, steak is the quintessential dish of celebration. At Dooley’s, it’s a celebration seven days a week as Chef Dooley serves the choicest cuts of beef to swooning customers. From filets to rib eyes – only served from rare to medium; don’t even dream of asking for a well-done rib eye – the steaks are served with delicious sides and sautéed onions, mushrooms and peppers, upon request. Perhaps Dooley’s most legendary dish, the Southern Fried Ribeye is hand-battered and served with cream gravy; it’s certainly a culinary creation to behold. 201 S.

Tucked away in an unassuming storefront, Phill’s has been churning out delicious breakfast staples for years. Classic breakfasts like eggs and bacon, biscuits and gravy and pancakes can often be seen in heaping helpings on patrons’ plates. Lunch specials are equally popular and generous, with chicken fried steak, patty melts and Phill’s Famous Boneless Chicken among favorites. But the thing to try first at Phill’s is the breakfast, and we recommend the Farmer’s Omelette: a three-egg omelet filled with onions, green peppers, tomatoes and cheese. Served with hash browns and toast or a biscuit and gravy, it’s an other-worldly morning meal. 3310 E. 32nd St., Tulsa. 918.742.4563
Lemon Tree Nutrition Lounge
The term “smoothie” has come to represent almost any number of ingredients blended together to make a drink. Smoothies used to be synonymous with health, with fruits and vegetables, with nutrition; these days, however, one can get a smoothie that packs a caloric punch on par with a double cheeseburger and fries. Perhaps that’s why a smoothie from Lemon Tree Nutrition Lounge is such a breath of fresh air. With flavors like Butterfinger, Banana Cream Pie and Orange Julius, each smoothie is only 230 calories and will leave you feeling rejuvenated instead of logy. 10600 S.
