Hello Friends, my name is Momodou Ceesay, the owner of Mamadou’s Restaurant in Glenpool, Oklahoma. Most people will ask me, Where are you from? I would reply, I am originally from The Gambia, in West Africa. The next question would be where in the world is Gambia? I would reply that The Gambia is a very tiny country in West Africa. For sure the next question would be, how in the world did you end up in Oklahoma? I would reply saying; I came over in January of 1983 to attend Rogers State College in Claremore and transferred to Oklahoma State University in Stillwater where I earned a degree in Hotel and Restaurant management.
I have been married to my wonderful and supportive wife Mamie for 31 years. We are blessed with four wonderful girls, Fatou, Abbie, Anjula and Sophie. Without the support of my wife and the kids it would have almost been impossible to keep the restaurant going for 18 years. We have lived in Glenpool since 1990.
There were a few fast food restaurants, but not a single restaurant that offers steaks and comfort food. That is why we opened Mamadou’s in November of 1996 to give Glenpool residents a choice of staying in town and enjoy good quality and reasonably priced food. After all, most residents work in Tulsa and really hate to go back to Tulsa after they already made it home. After 11years in business and still going strong is a true testament that word of mouth advertising is the best free advertising that keeps Mamadou’s going. My special thanks to our wonderful guest who have supported us over the years. For most of them Mamadou’s feels like home. They would come in and proceed straight to the salad bar before they are seated. They like to sit at the same table all the time and definitely feel out of place if they are not sitting at that particular table. That’s what I love about being in the restaurant business. It has given me the opportunity to be associated with a whole lot of wonderful folks. Mamadou’s is a family restaurant specializing in Steaks and seafood. We have been told that our Prime rib is the best in the Tulsa metro area. We also serve burgers, sandwiches, homemade soups and salads. All dinners come with your choice of Caesar salad or a trip to our all you can eat salad bar, a choice of starch (bake potato, rice, fries or mash potatoes) dinner roll and our vegetable of the day.We also have a full service bar for your entertainment and dinning pleasure. The bar area is a smoking environment. Please call us to schedule your next birthday party. We will provide the music and you will never have to clean up. We also have a big screen Television. Invite your friends over to watch your favorite team while enjoying a cold beer. I would like to sincerely thank all our loyal guests for supporting us over the years. Most definitely without your support we would not be here today.
