Opened in January 2023 by husband and wife duo Drew Laden and Kathryn Holsten, Nomad BBQ and Deli boasts some of the tastiest smoked meats and deli sandwiches in Tulsa’s midtown area.
The crew smokes all their own items – from brisket and pulled pork to deli ham and pastrami – on locally crafted Hasty Bake smokers. They also incorporate Kansas City-based rubs and sauces and pride themselves on the restaurant’s approachable, friendly atmosphere.
The menu at Nomad is broken up into sandwiches, barbecue, salads and sides.
Sandwiches run the gamut and include the Nomad Club, with smoked turkey and ham, bacon, Swiss cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomato, and the Pittsburg Nelly, with pulled pork, sauteed onions, peppers and white cheddar on a hoagie. Classics include the French dip, the Cuban and the smoked pastrami.
If you’re in the mood for nothin’ but BBQ, Nomad has you covered. Offerings include chopped and sliced brisket, smoked wings with your choice of sauce, pulled pork, ribs and sausage links. Even better, all house smoked meats are available in deli slices to take home.
Healthy eaters can try a variety of salads, including the Berkeley with berries, candied nuts, bleu cheese and red onion, or Elaine’s Big Salad with cheddar, tomato, cucumber, carrots, bell peppers and croutons.
Don’t forget to add on sides like housemade potato chips, mac and cheese, fried okra, potato salad, coleslaw, pasta salad and baked beans.
