Many may do it, but few do it like the joints on this list. We’re talking all things burgers in this blog! With Americans eating around 50 billion burgers a year, we bet many of you out there are just like us when it comes to our burgers: we want them juicy, flavorful and cooked to perfection. When hunger strikes, and all you want is the all-American classic, pull up this list. You won’t be disappointed!
Café Alley (Ardmore)
Behold, the Southern Favorite! Café Alley serves up a ½-pound premium Angus beef patty grilled to your liking and topped with house pimento cheese, smoked bacon, a fried green tomato and all the fixin’s on a brioche bun. It’s easy to see why this local favorite has been running strong since 1986. When traveling through Ardmore, you have to make a pit stop here.
Fat Bully’s (Sulphur)
Nothing beats a burger and a view of the lake. After enjoying a day on the Lake of the Arbuckles, stop into Fat Bully’s to chow down on a classic cheeseburger or even something a bit spicier. The “Burnout” comes with Sriracha, spicy mustard, pepper-jack cheese and grilled jalapeños. If you’re up for the challenge, try the 3-pound “Death by Meat,” a ½-pound patty topped with bacon, pulled pork, American cheese and BBQ sauce in a brioche bun. Fat Bully’s is open for lunch and dinner Friday-Sunday.
The Winston (Norman)
Mix things up with a Truffle Shuffle Burger from The Winston. Served smothered in sautéed onions and jalapeños, cheddar, adobo mayo and sour cream, this mouth-watering creation is perfect for when you’re craving that rich, umami flavor. You can sub the beef for a garlic quinoa vegan patty or go for the gluten-free bun if you feel so inclined. We also recommend giving the spicy sweet fries a go as well.
Hollie’s Flatiron Grill
Hollie’s Flatiron Grill brings its signature southwestern flair to its burger section with its Green Chile Cheeseburger. All burgers are ground fresh daily and served with fries, or pair yours with fried green tomatoes (limited availability). Located right off of I-35, this is a great pre-date night dinner spot before a movie at Warren Theatre or a casual meal for travelers passing through on the way to new adventures.
Toby Keith’s (Bricktown)
If you’re out enjoying the Bricktown canal around lunchtime, stop in Toby Keith’s for the Burger Special! Available Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., you get an 8 oz. burger with daily toppings and fries for $10.99. Go ahead and add a round of cheese fries for the table and enjoy the all day, everyday beer specials.
Midtown is a great place to go for a variety of burger options. Head to Café Cuvée for the upscale Bistro Burger: ground tenderloin, bleu cheese, shredded lardons, arugula and roasted garlic aioli on a brioche bun.
In addition to the original charburger, McNellie’s Public House offers a Spicy Chorizo Burger and California Turkey Burger that pair perfectly with its extensive selection of beers.
Across the way, Kaiser’s Grateful Bean Café serves up 100% pure bison beef burgers and hand-scooped ice cream from within its traditional American-style diner.
The Garage and Nic’s Place Diner and Lounge both have locations in the district on Robinson. Whether you’re in the mood for a piled-high side of fries from The Garage or a drink in Nic’s cozy basement bar lounge, you can count on top-notch burgers. Just west of the Plaza District is Nic’s Place Diner and Lounge predecessor, Nic’s Grill, which has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri and named the “best burger I’ve ever had” by actor Colin Farrell on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Be sure to take advantage of Ludivine’s $12 Blue Plate Burger Mondays, a great price for the made-from-scratch Wagyu burgers they serve in the bar beginning at 4 p.m. until supplies last.
The Jones Assembly
The revamped Jones Burger includes house-ground beef and pork belly, Tillamook cheddar, fried hothouse tomato, butter lettuce, onion, pickle and pimento aioli atop a brioche bun. This beautiful creation comes with your choice of frites, summer greens or a Caesar salad. If you haven’t yet sampled The Jones summer menu, hurry in while you can!
