Andolini’s Pizzeria offers you delicious pizzas and good customer experience

By Kohei Kunisaki

There are many restaurants in Tulsa, but Andolini’s pizzeria is definitely one of the best ones Tulsa has to offer. The store is located on E 15th St, which is just 2 miles away from University of Tulsa.

Andolini’s has its roots in Naples, Italy. Jim and Mike Bausch, the owner of Andolini’s, immigrated to America. After progressed San Francisco, they eventually got to Tulsa and started their business. I believe that their policies on food and service they provide are one of the reasons for its popularity. They make their foods from scratch. Also the staffs are very friendly. Andolini’s is very professional in providing its customers satisfying services.

You can sense appetizing smell of garlic and pizza even from the entrance. I went to the restaurant at 6 on Saturday, but by the time I got there the store was full of people waiting for their name to be called. There was also a long line for people ordering pizza for carryout. You can see how Tulsans love Andolini’s just by seeing how busy the restraint is.

They have a good collection of alcohol, too. Beers go well with the garlic knots.

Andolini’s has variety of pizzas. This time I ordered one named S.P.Q.P. It has ricotta, garlic, house made Italian sausage and prosciutto on the crust. It is heavenly tasty. Andolini’s is also known for its garlic knots. They have the perfect combination of tenderness and crunch.

If you want to have delicious pizza and astonishing customer service, I highly recommend Andolini’s Pizzeria.

The Coffee Side To Life

By Rebecca Reeve

Whether you’re a coffee lover or a tea drinker, the city of Tulsa has so many places to offer, but I can’t go past 918 Coffee. This local unique coffee shop has so much to offer from their great tasting drinks to their delicious food.

Morad and Annie El-Rahed opened 918 Coffee in July 2013 when they wanted to give Route 66 a unique coffeehouse stop off. Located at 2446 East 11th Street the friendly warming feeling this coffee shop gives you will keep you coming back time and time again.


I found that 918 Coffee was a great place to hang out for a warm drink and sweet treat while studying for exams or just to catch up with friends. From the friendly staff to the cool unique décor it has to offer it gives you a very welcoming feeling, I will definitely be going back to 918 Coffee very soon.

The Perfect Burger in the great town of Tulsa

By James Flanders


The wonderful city of Tulsa have many burger joints around. Ty's Hamburgers is a great place and a 
small enjoyable place to eat at. They opened up the restaurant in 1983. What makes them so unique is that they bring their own fresh meat everyday and also spin their own potatoes every day to make the curly Q fries which is tasty to your stomach.


Ty's Hamburgers have one of the shortest menu in the city. They have tasty choices of quarter-pound or one-third-pound regular hamburger that you can make it into a cheeseburger or hickory burger and hickory cheeseburger. Which all of it is cheap prices. Also bacon is extra and a side of curly fries with a burger.

I had sat down with a customer, and he said "He goes here most of the time, I kid you not, one of the best burger place in Tulsa."  Ty's Hamburgers is slowly but surely emerging their way up to the top of the market of where to eat at.

Tulsa Zoo is one of the most interesting place in Tulsa which located in Mohawk Park, and there are more than 10 areas with different species ready to show up for every visitor. Since 1927, Tulsa Zoo is continue to add more projects and expand scale in order to provide more abundant interesting programs and animals to visitors, such as the zoo is rebuilding the elephant area named Lost Kingdom, it will bring more interesting feeling to people in the near future.

Compare with other places, Tulsa Zoo gives me more expectation, because I can observe animals in different seasons, and animals will have different behaviors, so the zoo is always change, just like the residents in there are always showing their new lifestyles.
