KTUL-TV has been producing a series of stories about an all-Oklahoma dish — chicken-fried steak — in Tulsa.
The station featured Tally’s Cafe, which has become a strong alternative for Route 66 dining in Tulsa since the Metro Diner was demolished a few years ago.
What’s interesting is Tally’s is owned and run by Talal Alame, whom you’ll often find running the cash register. He’s one of many Lebanese-Americans who’ve learned the dining business in Oklahoma. Alame also organizes a free Thanksgiving dinner at his restaurant each year.
