Celebrity Restaurant 'Lookalike' Caesar Salad


If you live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, you've most likely visited the iconic restaurant, Celebrity Restaurant. It opened in 1963. It has a very nostalgic feel with it's red velvet, high-backed booths and swanky atmosphere. You almost feel as if Frank Sinatra or Elvis might make an appearance at any time. LOVE this place. The food is excellent, but the table side caesar salad is probably what they are most known for. It's SO GOOD!

I have watched them make the famous dressing to this salad so many times that I can now make it by heart. If you love caesar salad as much as my family does, this is a MUST TRY!
