JL's Barbeque

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "BBQ in Pryor"

Quote:
Since I have been in the Tulsa area, I have been told to go have a BBQ dinner at JL’s in Pryor. I have been told it is the "best BBQ around" and a "can’t miss" so today I was in Pryor and decided to try this "famous" BBQ. It is a family owned restaurant since the 1970s. They do not have a website, but you can find them on Facebook. From the outside the place looks like an old, dilapidated building built 60 years ago but it’s not, just created to look like an old place. There is plenty of paved parking around the building, even a space for large RVs or 18 wheelers. They are open every day of the week for lunch and dinner and even have catering services available.The food is served cafeteri...Read More

Legends Bar-B-Q & Steak Joint

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Great BBQ in Owasso"

Quote:
I love good BBQ so when I find a restaurant that serves great BBQ I want to shout it from the rooftop. Well this is my rooftop shout out – Legends BBQ and Steak Joint in Owasso, OK is a must try. We have lived in Owasso for 2 years and never had heard of this place. It is out of town center about 2 miles in an area named German Corner. A neighbor stopped the other day to say they love the place and we had to give it a try so we did. The restaurant is a free standing building that has the look of an old saloon. When you get inside you realize the décor is of the same. There are old saddles, toys, farm equipment and household good scattered around the walls. The plank walls give it a barn effect as doe...Read More

Los Cabos Mexican Grill

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A visit to Los Cabos is what you need."

Quote:
One of my favorite places to have lunch or dinner is Los Cabos Mexican Grill. I have yet to find a better eatery, it has it all. To start, every time I go in I feel as if I am transported to the Mexican Riviera. The warmth of the walls paired with the large fish, pottery, dark wood, and water displays makes me remember our days in Mazatlan and Los Cabos last year. My favorite table is one on the open patio, not the large outdoor area with its own bar and music stage, but the patio with the large garage type doors that overlook the large pond and its ducks and swans. It’s best during the early summer with a cool breeze stirring around you.The staff here is some of the best I have ever had; ...Read More

La Quinta Inn Bartlesville

Hotel | "La Qunita Inn - Bartlesville, OK"

Quote:
First of all, we chose this hotel because they allow pets. If you have read any of my entries, you know that we have two Jack Russell Terriers that travel along with us. They love hotels. We never leave them at home so anywhere we stay must allow pets. This hotel did not charge us for the pets or make us sign any paper.This hotel previously was a Holiday Inn but recently changed names so the exterior does not look like a La Quinta Inn. The hotel building itself is quite old and the exterior looks dingy and needs a good paint job. One good thing is the location. It is located on the main highway going into town. It was very easy to find. Our room was the typical budget hotel room with a kin...Read More

We chose this hotel for a relaxing weekend away for the reason of the price and the fact that they accept pets. I find that most Best Western hotels look the same. The room had a king bed, a small table with 2 chairs and dresser with TV. It also had a refrigerator which is always nice. There is one picture on the wall which was probably bought at the hotel store. Nothing special was it was clean and well cared for.

The hotel offered a small outdoor pool area but no hot tub or fitness area. There was quite a bit of grassy area for the dogs. The service was basic with no extras offered.

We would probably try another hotel in the area the next time we visit Bartlesville.

Regency Inn

Hotel

Quote:
We just wanted a weekend away so we chose to drive 45 minutes from Tulsa to Muskogee. It is a small city but filled with history and things to do. Finding a hotel that accepts pets is sometimes a daunting chore so when we found this one we thought we would give it a try. We found the Regency Inn on the Oklahoma Tourism site but it didn't have pictures or much information. When we first saw the motel we thought we were in trouble. It is an older, drive in style motel without a pool, resturant, or much of anyting else. It does have a laundry room and a continental breakfast. We found a room that was on the large side but was old and had mis- matched decorations, but it was very clean. The roo...Read More

Cheddar's Causal Cafe

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant

Quote:
We just moved to the Tulsa area and have heard great things about "Cheddar's" so we had to try it out. I was sorely disappointed in the entire experience. It started with the seating girl. She left me standing for 3-4 minutes to giggle and whisper with a co-worker before she acknowledged me. We were then seated in the bar area which was very noisy and crowded. I would never choose the bar if we were asked, but we were not asked our preference. The atmosphere was one of a loud college bar scene but does cater to families. There is an outdoor dining area that looked nice and the inside decor was warm and inviting. The bar area had numerous TV screens for the sports fan.The menu was varied but no...Read More

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

Restaurant | "Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar"

Quote:
I had the pleasure of visiting Fleming's Steakhous for a business meeting. It is located in Utica Square, which is an upscale dining and shopping area. The atmosphere of Fleming's is one of a old library in a fine home. The walls are deep in color with wood coverings. Immediatly when you walk into the doors, you feel relaxed and welcomed. The wait staff was attentive. Our waiter spent time at our table explaining the specials and the wine list. He was pleasant and made our dinner a wonderful experience.We shared the appetizers around the table. The sweet chile calamari was lightly breaded and the chile sauce was spicy but not hot. We also had the cheese & charcuterie plate which wa...Read More

Oklahoma Aquarium

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

Quote:
Where do you take two, very active 2 1/2 year old boys? The Oklahoma Aquarium, of course. We arrived at the opening hour of 10am and found that we were not the only adults bringing the children to this adventure spot. The admission of $13.95 for adults and $9.95 for children 3-17 with kiddos under 2 being free, is money well spent. Of course you can buy a family annual membership for $85.00 if you plan to visit often. The aquarium houses over 200 exibits including a casting pond outside. Some of the exhibits we found were the Coral Reef, Oklahoma fishes, Ozark Stream, Shark tank, and the Oceans room. The Oceans room was the highlight of the day for the boys. You buy shrimp pieces and a feed...Read More
