BOK Center

Tulsa's BOK Center will host the 2023 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships from Thursday-Saturday.

This week, Tulsa will welcome the NCAA Wrestling Championships, which will be held at the BOK Center from Thursday-Saturday.

The O’Colly pieced together a list of notable eateries to make your week one-to-remember in addition to the pinnacle event of college wrestling.


A gem of a fine-dining restaurant, just walking distance from the arena.

Nola’s Cajun Eatery:

End your day with one of the best Cajun ambiances in town. The gumbo is a must-get.

Kilkenny’s Irish Pub:

The Kings River Fish and Chips will hold a special place in your memory down the road. Add a side of Irish potato soup and you’re asking for a meal-to-remember.

Fat Guy’s:

Just want something fast? Swing by one of the best burger places in the state and taste its mouth-watering patties and satisfying sauces and seasoning.


If a casual setting fits the vibe, this is the place to go. Sit down, have a drink – the wines are a fan favorite – and embrace some of the best food in the downtown area on a more formal scale.


Stop by the Tulsa Art District (not for the art), to try food inspired by that in the alluring island of Dominica.


Brace yourself for some of the largest pizza pies in the Midwest region. Varying from 16 to 20 inches, two may not even be enough to down one of these.

Ti Amo Ristorante:

Looking to go Italian? This one holds a variety of renowned dishes that will certainly hold a special place afterward.

La Tertulia:

Can’t go wrong with some New Mexican food before, after or even in between a long day of wrestling.

Dilly Diner:

Who doesn’t want breakfast all day? The pancakes are a house favorite.

The Harvard Sports Bar

Coined as one of the better places to watch a sporting event. The beer is good. Mixes are even better.

The Tavern

Good food with a spacious inside. Of course, the drinks aren’t bad either.

American Solera

A renowned brewery in Tulsa, known for its olden oak barrel aging process. If you’re into a classic brewery vibe, this is the spot.

The Max Retropub

A unique bar with an arcade feel – not many others can claim that. From trivia to other breakout group actives, you’ll never have a dull moment.

Neff Brewing

Located in one of Tulsa’s oldest buildings, this place will carry a nostalgic feel with you.

Marshall Brewing

Do you want a place to sit and talk? A lot of places advertise it, but this one actually delivers with its unique table set up and string of televisions along its mirrors.

Elgin Park

A pizzeria and sports bar combined in one. This shouldn’t require much advertising.

Welltown Brewing

Quality inside design; even better outside eating area.

Roof Sixty-Six Bar

Bars with a scenic rooftop view of downtown Tulsa isn’t something people normally pass on. Of course, if that isn’t your forte, there’s always the inside option as well.

Heirloom Rustic Ales

Said to have one of the larger varieties of craft beer options, Herloom Rustic Ales is a feasible fallback option for anyone looking for a quick drink in a relaxed environment.
