Two more businesses have found homes in Mother Road Market, Tulsa’s new food hall being erected at 1124 S. Lewis Ave.
They are Chicken and the Wolf, which is from the creators and Lone Wolf Banh Mi, and & Tacos, a concept from the owners of the food truck Pollo Al Carbon.
Mother Road Market, a 27,000-square-foot food hall with about 20 businesses, is expected to open in August.
Owned by Philip and Danielle Phillips, Chicken and the Wolf will feature Nashville-style hot and buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches, hot chicken fries and Southern sides, including house-made pickles and sauces. The business will use antibiotic-free and hormone-free chicken.
The Phillipses have been working in the Tulsa food scene for the last 15 years and in 2012 founded Lone Wolf Banh Mi, whose locations will remain open.
“We are stoked to be part of one of the most progressive local food ideas ever in Mother Road Market,” Philip Phillips said in a statement. “It’s a place that we will want to bring our kids and friends, and we are honored to be able to contribute to this experience.
“We are progressive in our view of food, and Mother Road Market falls right in line with what we want to see in our great and growing hometown of Tulsa.”
Mario Mazedo and Daniel Ruiz are fronting & Tacos, which will focus heavily on Mexican street food.
“I have been in the food business for 10 years, and I am passionate about bringing flavors from my hometown of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, to Tulsa,” Mazedo said in a statement. “The thing I love most about my business is the experience of sharing these tastes from my old home to my new home.”
One space remains in Mother Road Market and that tenant is expected to be announced soon. Previously announced tenants include Andolini’s Pizzeria, Ediblend, Kitchen 66 General Store + Farm Stand by Tulsa Farmers’ Market, Oklahoma Joe’s and Trenchers Crustacean Station.
