Scott Cherry set out to find the oldest restaurants on Tulsa's major north-south streets for a Tulsa World Magazine story.

With a few caveats... They aren't the oldest physically on a particular street. That would have been interesting but a little tricky. They are the restaurants with the longest histories in Tulsa on (or really close to) major streets.

No matter how you look at it, if you like Tulsa history and like to eat, visits to these restaurants are a must.
