The new site for Ike’s Chili isn’t open yet, but KTUL-TV in Tulsa provided a look behind the scenes at 11th Street (aka Route 66):

Ike’s Chili, which marked its 100th year a few years ago, has been on Admiral Place — an older alignment of Route 66 — for nearly a half-century. So it packing up to a somewhat newer alignment of 66 is almost a sideways move. Ike’s is widely regarded as the oldest restaurant in Oklahoma.

One of Ike’s operators previously said the move was made into a historic Plainsman building because of the excitement of 11th Street’s ongoing revitalization, plus the restaurant will own its place outright instead of leasing.

KTUL also provides some background on Ike’s new neighbors. One is Mike’s Manitiques, which stocks collectibles and car and motorcycle parts. Its Facebook page is here.

Another is Old Pink Truck — an antique store that specializes in Art Deco, mid-century, retro and “redneck revival” items. It’s Facebook page is here.

All of this is open or about to open in the 1400 block of East 11th Street.
