Hello Mashed Potatoes!

The old Nelson's sign downtown Tulsa
Had a wonderful lunch at Nelson's Buffeteria while shopping in Tulsa Saturday.  I just stumbled upon it....never realized that they had such a history downtown (75 years in some shape or form) and were just newly reopened near 44th and Memorial (map)-The photo above is from the past...the downtown location-The food is wonderful...and from the reviews I read, close to the original menu.  What a find!  I ate the chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes (Hello!), gravy and green beans.  So heavenly!  Got there near closing time (2pm on Saturday) and the potatoes were running low.  "HELLO MASHED POTATOES" the server yelled out to the kitchen.  I only jumped half way out of my skin....he really startled me!  But yes...I agreed, Hello Mashed Potatoes!  I didn't want to miss out on these! They were delicious!  I do have to return soon. Reason: They were out of the homemade pies. And you know I can't not have the pie!  Guess I have more Tulsa shopping to come!
