Mother Road Market combats decision fatigue with weekly discounts
Past $3 Food Flight Night offerings have included popcorn shrimp tostadas, featuring loads of fried shrimp, cilantro, black beans, red onion and signature salsa on a perfectly puffy tortilla.
Since bursting onto the scene last fall, Mother Road Market has become Tulsa’s favorite spot for locals and visitors alike to sample the flavors of our fine city. Bursting with more than 20 different restaurant and retail concepts under one roof, the food hall at 1124 S. Lewis Ave. offers an unbeatably diverse selection of cuisine that’s sure to satisfy the most discerning local palates.
Of course, all that choice can lead to decision fatigue. With so many options, it’s easy to fall into the routine of the familiar and stick with what you know. Lucky for you, the folks at MRM have found a solution for your indecisiveness with a regular Foodie Flight Night on Wednesdays. From 5-9 p.m., visitors can load up their plates with $3 deals or marked discounts across a number of restaurant and retail concepts.
MRM Foodie Flight Night is the perfect way to break out of your comfort zone without breaking the bank. The offerings change week-to-week, but we’ve got the low-down on the kinds of deals you can expect. So bring the whole crew—along with your appetites—to discover your new favorite dining destination at Tulsa’s first food hall.
Mr. Nice Guys Shrimp Shack
From its origins as a late-night food truck staple, the folks at Mr. Nice Guys have settled into their new MRM location with style—and lots of flavor. Sporting a new Costa Rican-inspired seafood concept, the past year has brought plenty of delicious changes to the brick and mortar location of this foodie favorite. Past $3 Food Flight Night offerings have included spicy pork sweet potato tacos and popcorn shrimp tostadas, featuring loads of fried shrimp, cilantro, black beans, red onion and signature salsa on a perfectly puffy tortilla. Be sure to grab a roll of addictive festival bread, available sweet or savory.
Tulsa’s newest burger concept is generating plenty of buzz, and Flight Night is the perfect time to stop by and see what all the fuss is about. Discounted offerings like their strawberry habanero lemonade or cheesy bacon-loaded Rodeo Fries make for the perfect addition to the original Howdy Burger—featuring double meat, double cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and Howdy’s famous “rodeo sauce.” Feel like going meatless? Check out the All Hat burger, featuring those classic flavors on top of an Impossible veggie patty. Howdy Burger also makes a mean corn dog, but only on Saturday and Sunday.
Kendall-Whittier regulars know Pollos Asados al Carbon as one of the most formidable taco trucks in Tulsa. Located at the northeast corner of Admiral Boulevard and Lewis Avenue, the original Carbon is known for its famous green sauce and $5-for-five-tacos deal. Now brothers Mario and Daniel Ruiz have set up shop at MRM with their spinoff, & Tacos, featuring all the flavors of their beloved food truck along with expanded offerings including fried dishes like chimichangas. If you’re lucky, you might get the chance to snag one of the brothers’ chicken or pork tamales for $3 during Flight Night. But whatever they’re offering, you’re sure to taste the love the Ruiz family puts into each dish. “We are thankful for the people that have given us the chance to feed them,” Daniel Ruiz said.
