“I want to show everyone in Tulsa, you need your education, you need your basics, but you can become anything you want,” he says. “Rozay’s Wingz would like to thank everyone in Tulsa for their support.”

“Tulsa’s been good to me,” he says. “You’ve got to take out the possibility of failure. You’ve got to be aggressive. I love the Lord, I love my wife, and I honor the dollar. I’m so thankful I know the difference. It ain’t all about the money.”

Walker has big plans for Rozay’s with a second location at 31st Street and Memorial Drive, which will serve up not just delicious chicken and things, but also catfish with homemade tartar sauce and more. “I’ve got the wherewithal to stick to it,” he says. “Soon, Rozay’s will be a household name.” He has plans to open several more locations as well.


For a quick meal, you can order one of several combos which will suit just about any appetite. The combos include traditional wings, whole wings, boneless, tenders, or a wrap along with a side and a drink. For little ones, pick from popcorn chicken, junior hamburger or a hot dog.

You can get Rozay’s brought to your door with Grubhub, DoorDash, or Mr. Delivery. And catering is available. “We’ll do anything for money,” Walker says, “with food.”

Monday-Thursday: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday-Saturday: 11 a.m.-4 a.m. Sunday: Closed



Also on the menu is a Philly cheese steak. Walker may not be from Philadelphia, but that cheese steak is as good as anything you’ll get there. With seasoned meat, green peppers, mushrooms, and creamy

Rozay’s doesn’t skimp on their side dishes. You can get a side or a family order of tasty and creamy coleslaw, fries, and their expertly made fried okra, crispy and seasoned just right. Walker says the corn nuggets are a very popular choice.

Rozay’s stays open until 4 a.m. Friday and Saturday, providing a popular dining opportunity for concert-goers, bar patrons, insomniacs and first responders like police officers, highway patrol officers, firefighters, and sheriffs.


The sauce choices have enough variety to make any taste bud happy. You can get your traditional wing sauce in mild, medium or X-hot (he’s not kidding). The honey sauces have got to be tried to be believed. The honey gold is the most popular, but if you want more heat, try the honey hot — the same great flavor, but it bites back. The honey barbecue is sweet and mild enough for anyone. If you want all the heat, try the Sriracha sauce. Or you could enjoy some extra flavor with the teriyaki, the garlic parmesan sauce, ranch, or lemon pepper seasoning.

cheese melting on top, the flavor is rich and complex. The soft bread is perfect for holding in all that deliciousness. If you prefer, they also offer the Philly with chicken.


“I was sitting on my steps one day, and a leprechaun came up to me and gave me that seasoning,” he says. Don’t ask him what’s in it; he won’t tell you, and it’s not for sale either. Whether it’s from the end of the rainbow or not, the seasoning — his own take on a common Memphis seasoning blend — sets off the crispy wings perfectly. Be sure to give it a try. It’s amazing.
