The dairy aficionados at Rusty's Frozen Custard create icy, slowly churned goodies crafted so thick that customers are even encouraged to turn their treats upside down to fully appreciate their density. Luscious custards coat tongues in classic flavors of vanilla or strawberry, and when dunked into fountain drinks, create bubbly floats. Sundaes and shakes, meanwhile, can be outfitted with more than 35 toppings, including Oreo pieces, Nerds, or M&M's. Rusty’s crew also excels at making specialty drinks, such as lattes and low-fat smoothies, which can be enjoyed while relaxing on outdoor seating.
Camille Rutkauskas and her husband, David, glanced at the Tulsa mall's food court and its predictable litany of fast-food options. That's when an idea struck—why not open a place that's the antithesis of all of this? With that, the couple opened Camille's Sidewalk Café, a place focused on fresh coastal- and Mediterranean-inspired food, fresh baked goods, and fruit smoothies. With a menu highlighted by made-to-order wraps and paninis with ingredients such as brie, herb-garlic tortillas, and pesto mayo, the couple's vision propelled Camille's Sidewalk Café to a franchise with locations in nearly 30 states, as well as Puerto Rico, the Middle East, and the Banana Republic.
Tony's Pizzeria and Gyros hosts a menu of piping-hot Greek cuisine, Italian dishes, and New York–style pizza. Hands knead fresh dough and concoct fresh sauce every day to accompany Tony's special blend of spices. Ravening hoards can top two large single-topping pizzas with pie plumage including pepperoni, onion, bacon, and jalapeño, as well as a choice of garlic bread or a 2-liter bottle of soda ($11.99). Specialty pizzas may be spangled with two to eight different pie-toppers ($6.99 for a medium). Rather than tossing a perfectly good origami collection into the oven, harness the deliciousness of folded treats with a chicken or traditional gyro, in which heaps of meat nestle into a pita drizzled in homemade cucumber sauce ($4.59). A honey-drenched chunk of homemade baklava aptly concludes Mediterranean meals ($1.15).
Mamadou’s Restaurant satisfies visitors with a robust menu specializing in steak and seafood and boasting a healthy selection of soups, salads, and burgers. Diners can inaugurate the foodie festivities with an order of six crab-stuffed mushrooms topped with melted provolone cheese ($6.99) or opt for fried pickles or fried green beans ($6.99 each) to combine the nutrition of vegetables with the fashionableness of a breading jacket. Burgers and sandwiches such as the half-pound cheeseburger ($5.99), the catfish fillet ($6.99), and the classic turkey-club sandwich ($6.59) all come with seasoned fries, enabling eaters to pretend as though silverware has yet to be discovered. Satiate a desire for turf with an 8-ounce slow-roasted prime rib ($14.99, served Wednesday to Sunday) or for surf with a blackened spicy Cajun catfish ($10.99), or combine seafood and landfood with the steak and shrimp, an 8-ounce sirloin with five grilled shrimp reclining on a soft bed of rice ($21.99). All dinners come with a caesar salad or all-you-can-eat salad bar, a choice of starch, a dinner roll, and the vegetable of the day.
