Today was our first visit to Sam & Ella's (an on purpose play on words - if you say it fast it sounds like "Salmonella's") Chicken Palace. By the name, you might expect fried chicken, but the name comes from all of the chicken-themed decor....More

Cute historical place, so clean and neat and pizza you'll come back for, not your ordinary pizza. The decor so cute and many people remember this building as the old Redmen Shoppe that was a staple of our little town. It's across from the newest,...More

As close as you can get to old world pizza in Tahlequah, Oklahoma! Great staff and a pleasant environment within walking distance to NSU and next to all the community events held at Norris Park.
