POSTED ON NOVEMBER 2, 2011:
New Bru. A new restaurant concept by local entrepreneurs is set to open this month in Brookside. Taking over the former Bruhouse location, R Bar & Grill at 3421 S. Peoria, will feature craft beer and food. Former president of The Holmes Organisation, Bill Grant, and longtime White Owl Pub manager, Josh Royal, plan to give the building a much needed facelift before the grand opening.
Festive Food. Freddy's Frozen Custard &
Steakburgers, originally developed by WWII veteran Freddy Simon in Wichita, Kan. in 2003, has plans to greatly expand their current interest in Green Country.
Offering all-American cuisine and specialty desserts, Freddy's is increasing from one Tulsa location at 71st St., near Memorial, to six in coming months.
One, Two, Freddy's coming for you...
"...We love the market, it's a growing market and Tulsa didn't see the dips a lot of the rest of the country saw, so we love it here," said operating partner Nick Esterline.
The new location, scheduled for a soft opening on Nov. 6, is amidst a sea of new development in Broken Arrow. Freddy's at 1151 E. Hillside Dr. will have a grand opening on Nov. 7.
Operating partners Jason Ingermanson and Nick Esterline have development rights for a total of five, not including the existing one on 71st St. They are looking at all possible development locations including Owasso, Broken Arrow and Midtown.
Hank Estrada and Derek Riise are the general manager and assistant general manager, respectively, at the new location.
