Open 7 days a week for breakfast (served all day), lunch, and dinner, Tally’s Good Food Café has become a fixture for locals and Route 66 travelers passing through Tulsa. Although not an original historic diner the interior of Tally’s embraces the classic fifties-era design and the exterior boasts some impressive neon.
Famed for it’s expansive cinnamon rolls (the size of a dinner plate!) the diner has also been the recipient of a number of awards over the years including Tulsa’s Best Diner, Tulsa’s Best Breakfast and the admittedly niche Tulsa’s Best Cinnamon Rolls.
Since the day that Tally’s Café opened, owner Tally Alame has greatly expanded the space; he opened a second dining room in 1990 and acquired additional space to add on a 50-seat banquet room and full bar in 2016. Tally’s Café now has a 2nd location in South Tulsa, which opened in 2017 and is operated by James Alame, Tally’s son.
“On a trip from Michigan to San Antonio for my daughters Air Force training graduation we stopped at Tallys Cafe in Tulsa Oklahoma for breakfast. It was hands down the best we’ve ever been too. The atmosphere was great. From the old 50’s style decor to the friendliest staff you’ll ever meet. Not to mention the food was amazing too. If we find ourselves down that way again we will for sure be stopping in again.”
