Blue Dome Diner

Sunday morning hunger pains with no drive to crack some eggs and toss in veggies led me to comfort in one of Tulsa’s best breakfast diners, Blue Dome Diner. A once a month must stop, this diner dishes jazzed up home cooked style meals that are big on flavor and light on your wallet.

From the outside and upon entering you would think this diner is dime size. The front room is small and quaint, housing a few booths and tables and bar top seats. Walk through and you’ll discover a gargantuan back room resembling a large open concert hall. The bar is based here and serves up lip smacking bloody marys (request Titos) that you have to try. Just try not to suck it through the straw in mere minutes, a difficult feat I assure you.

We chose to sit in the cozy front room and belly up to the bar to watch the organized chaos of the open kitchen. The cooks cling to their spatulas and spoons while the waitresses bus back and forth with plates piled high. Sunlight poured into the little room through large glass windows and chairs squeaked on the old tile floor. The only issue is the mouthwatering melt in your mouth biscuits that pop out of the oven…unfortunately they aren’t kind to the gluten intolerant.

My go to is their Vegetable Scrambler ($7.49), a kitchen sink of vegetables and scrambled eggs with home fries on the side. Crunchy snap peas, fluffy broccoli, tender asparagus, zucchini and sweet baby carrots provide a scrumptious garden medley and nestle pleasantly with the eggs. They top the whole bit off with a pile of melted cheese. You also have your choice of French toast (house made sourdough bread), pancakes, house made biscuits and gravy or toast. Since none of the above are gluten free I opt for extra home fries and fruit. Their home fries, thickly sliced and quartered new potatoes are lightly blackened on the flat top grill. They usually need a little salt lovin’, but I like them anyway. A little Louisiana does the whole dish right in my book.

Blue Dome Diner is an excellent spot for the gluten free and also caters to the vegetarian crowd. I recommend for breakfast/brunch/lunch. They are open seven days a week.
