Onion burgers are an Oklahoma institution, a delicious patty of beef with paper thin slices of onion seared into it right on the griddle. Never tried one? You’re definitely missing out. One of my favorite joints is Tucker’s Onion Burgers, and a few weeks ago my friend/photographer Caroline and I popped into their new location on Classen Curve to check it out!
Like any good burger, you can order an onion burger about a million different ways. I opted for a single with cheddar, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, and mayo while Caroline went with the double (she’d has a really bad week) with the kitchen sink minus the pickles. I love how Tucker’s uses the bags your meal is delivered in as the order form – so smart!
Uhhh, the difference is obvious! (PS: She ate it ALL.) Not pictured is the fresh limeade I sucked down and the chocolate shake Caroline couldn’t even finish. Oh, and there might have been some fries, too…
We have a fantastic local food movement here in OKC, and it’s also at Tucker’s where everything is locally sourced. Their Classen Curve location has an amazing exposed ceiling that somehow goes right along with this idea. The vibe is very vintage modern, embracing your classic burger joint while keeping things fresh!
My sentiments exactly!
