This place has been around about as long as Tulsa itself, so you know one thing: Ike's knows its chili. Cooks prepare 300-pound pots full of chili throughout the week and serve the mildly spicy soup with just about anything. Try a Frito pie, a chili cheeseburger, spaghetti with chili or a chili cheese Coney. You also could have some pasta (spicy or mild, of course), a hamburger or a basket of chicken tenders. Ike's is now also serving the BOK Center.

Eating at Tally's is like time-traveling back to the '50s, thanks to the retro neon sign that greets customers and the classic diner interior.
