About Mother Road Market
When it opened in the fall of 2018 Mother Road Market became one of Tulsa’s top food destinations quicker than you can flip a burger. There you’ll find more than 20 different restaurant and retail concepts developed by Tulsa’s most innovative food entrepreneurs, but it’s much more than just a place to stop and eat. Mother Road’s circuitous floor plan, enormous patio, regular programming and open seating practically guarantee that you’ll bump into a friend or acquaintance on each visit. It’s a social hub as much as it is an oasis of flavor.
Housed in the historic 1939 Scrivner-Stevens Co. Grocery building just off the intersection of 11th Street and S. Lewis Ave.—you may know this particular stretch of road as Route 66— Mother Road was developed by the Lobeck-Taylor Family Foundation, and has since anchored further development along Lewis Ave. Inside you’ll find a bright, welcoming space decorated with a tasteful combination of preserved elements (exposed bricks!) and punchy modern touches like their neon-yellow stools.
But the food of course is the star attraction at Mother Road, which boasts a diverse range of vendors that reward repeat visitors. They rotate periodically, but a few mainstays have emerged. Lone Wolf’s Nashville hot chicken spinoff concept Chicken in the Wolf always seems to have a line that winds halfway down the hall and Umami Fries has the lock on savory Korean fusion. For healthier fare that’s just as rich in flavor, try Bodhi’s Bowl or Radish. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, Bakeshop and Big Dipper Creamery both have the goods. But browsing’s half the fun at Mother Road, so go ready to explore.
Other highlights include the 11-seat WEL Bar (with its rotating local draft beers, seasonals and well-stocked liquor shelves) and the massive patio space immediately west of it. (The putt-putt course back there is great for families.) And there are plenty of reasons to visit Mother Road on a weekly basis. They host regular events both inside and outside the space, ranging from live music to yoga to intensive cooking cooking classes.
