Hank's Hamburgers

"My wife and I just got back from a wonderful lunch at Hanks. This is a place usually only us locals know about, but one we love to share. This is the type of burger that was once common (in 1958) but not now. My wife swears it's the best burger she's had since ..."   [Read More]

It is frustrating to be a burger lover traveling through Oklahoma because there are so many good ones to try. But if you come to Tulsa, Hank's is a must.
