8 HOURS A WEEK

 

J.J.’s Gourmet Cafe in Tulsa.  An institution that opens for only 8 hours a week, takes only cash, and has no working phone.  Jane and I have long wanted to go, but of course, we never seem to hit at the right time.  We finally managed to eat a meal at J.J.’s this past trip, and we were served by the man himself.   Walking into J.J.’s is like stepping into a time machine stuck in the 70′s.

Heavy on the stained glass……

Kitschy signs are everywhere……

 

The burgers, which is all J.J.’s really serves, were fine–nothing to get too excited about, but good.  We really just enjoyed visiting with J.J., or Double J as his sole employee refers to him.

J.J. told us great stories of the 60′, nudist camps, and lots of psychedelic drugs.  Go for the experience alone.  J.J.’s is one of the many things that make Tulsa so much fun to visit.

    That sounds like my kind of place! You’ve got to love a hidden gem with an old hippie owner. I wish I lived closer!
