Sports fans can watch their favorite game at the circular bar.
Nestled behind the Vineyard Shopping Center at 108th and Memorial, sits one of Tulsa’s hidden gems. Treys Bar and Grill takes a different slant on what most consider bar and grill cuisine. Touted as a family-friendly bar and grill, Treys takes the utmost pride in providing quality food with a fun atmosphere all can enjoy.
Upon entering the restaurant, it’s evident owners Travis Davidson and Matt Lopez have a soft spot for Tulsa. Adorning the walls are a twelve-foot square Tulsa mural, an 11-foot television screen replicating the Admiral Twin and a make-shift stage that pays homage to Cain’s Ballroom, complete with the latest concert posters. You can’t help but feel nostalgic.
Treys fills a lot of voids for many people. “We have a lot of regulars, families and even bridge groups,” says Travis. For those wanting to watch sports, there is a 40-seat circular bar with 11 televisions sitting side by side. “We have loads of sports fans who come in to watch the games,” explains Travis, adding that one of the biggest groups he hosts are the Tulsa Steeler Fanatics.
Kids aren’t left out either. With a kid’s menu that ranges from corn dog bites to mini burgers. The little ones also enjoy playing shuffleboard.
The newly constructed patio at Treys provides heat and entertainment.
While the atmosphere seems enough to make the bar and grill a unique fixture on the burger scene, it wasn’t enough for Treys owners. “Serving quality food is something we take very seriously,” explains Travis. And, there are many awards to prove it. Among them are Best Burger and Best Happy Hour from Oklahoma Magazine and Best Family Restaurant finalist from the Tulsa World.
It’s easy to understand why Treys is a consistent winner …. Treys only uses the freshest of foods. Burgers are made from 100% double ground brisket that is delivered fresh each day along with the locally baked hamburger buns. Each burger is grilled to bring out the flavors in the meat. “It makes a huge difference in taste,” explains Travis. He also states that none of the food they serve is precooked or frozen. “Our famous sweet potato fries are hand-cut every day. We don’t even buy our sauces, they are all made from scratch,” adds Travis.
A new addition to the restaurant is the covered patio. It sports two 70-inch screens and is heated so it can be enjoyed year-round.
One of the newest menu items is the Give Back Burger. Each month a different charity is chosen, and a burger created to highlight it. Two dollars from each burger sold goes to the charity. “I think we have a real responsibility to better the community,” says Travis.
“Besides giving customers a new burger to choose from each month, customers learn about different local charities. It makes the donation very meaningful to keep it local.” The idea has become so popular customers often just donate to the cause without getting the burger.
Custom catering is another source of business for the south Tulsa restaurant. There are no set menus, and items have ranged from a caramel apple nacho bar to wraps and a macaroni and cheese bar.
Treys is open seven days a week. Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Their menu features their famous burgers and chili, but also serves salads and savory appetizers you won’t find anywhere else, with nothing costing more than $13.
