Tyson Caldwell aka Tulsa Food Guy conceived Tulsa’s Home For Manly Food in October, 2009 at a greasy little burger joint (known only by locals at the time) called Bill’s Jumbo Burgers. Five months later, TulsaFoodGuy.com was born, giving the people what they needed… a website dedicated to all food that is Manly. TFG has made it his mission since he moved to the Tulsa area in late 2007 to seek out the finest eating establishments around. BBQ, Fried Chicken, Steak, Sausages, Pizza and so on… If it’s greasy, meaty, saucy or spicy, TFG will eat it. Catch on Twitter @TulsaFoodGuy.
