Hamburgers in Central Oklahoma Tue, 03/16/04 11:28 PM (permalink)
I'm not a particular fan of hamburgers, except as a platform for good cheeses, mushrooms, green chilis, etc. HOWEVER, my husband the burger lover is a big fan of O'Connell's, on Lindsay St, just across the street from the University of Oklahoma campus in Norman. Try the ETW - the burger with Extra Tasty Woofins.

Irma's Burger Shack opened in Oklahoma City last fall. It's east of Western Ave. on NW 63rd. They serve an assortment of sandwiches and a daily special like chicken and dumplings. The specialty is the No-Name Ranch Burger, named after the ranch where the chef buys all-natural beef for this and his two upscale restaurants. My husband's problem at Irma's is trying not to order a second burger for dessert.

    I don't think there is any state with a greater passion for hamburgers than Oklahoma.I don't know O'Connell's or Irma's, but I have fond recollections of the amazing Caesarburger at a place called The Split T in OK City...

        "Johnny's" and "The Charcoal Oven" on Northwest Expressway in OKC are my favorites.

          Sadly the split T has been gone for some time now. They even tore down the building. This was the place to be in the Bud Wilkerson era, does that date me?

            Do they add the onions to the burger as it's cooking everywhere in OK, or can you ask for it?

              Lone Star---Not everywhere---mostly in the western half of the state---but you can ask for it around this neck of the woods(SE Okla)and folks ablige.

                Here is a recipe from Oklahoma and it's Great for the onion lovers

                Oklahoma Onion-Fried Burgers
                Recipe By : Juliewynn @ Recipe Cottage
                Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:15

                Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
                -------- ------------ --------------------------------
                1 pound ground beef
                1 medium sweet onion -- thinly sliced
                salt and pepper -- to taste
                4 each hamburger buns
                dill pickle slices -- as desired
                Very thinly sliced onions, ground beef patties. Carmelize onions as you fry the burger.
                Simply make your patties the size you wish. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet (cast iron is best) until hot, add one thinly sliced onion, then add your patties. Lower heat to medium and fry the burger until nicely browned on one side. Flip the burger and onion slices and fry the remaining side of the burger until also well browned. Serve on griddle browned bun with all the trimmings you want.

                By the way, this is authentic! I'm from SW Oklahoma and make these every few weeks if I don't grill the burgers outside.

                MORE: I *have* been to Oklahoma. They chug a handful of onions on the grill and mash the hamburger down on it. It really does seem to get at least mildly carmelized. They didn't seem to be cooked over very high heat when I've had them (which was twice). They are certainly not carmelized like you you make for chopped liver or something similar....Mike Beede

                    I mis-read that as "girdle" the first time...

                      Yeah the Split T was great--at least they saved the excellent neon sign, though is it gracing a Sonic these days.

                      There is a Camille's Sidewalk Cafe there now.
