Jaime's Favorite Things: Tucker's Onion Burgers
Have you tried Tucker's Onion Burgers yet? They have two locations. The first on 23rd Street. The second just opened this fall on Classen Curve. They have a minimal menu at Tucker's. Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers, Turkey Burgers, Fresh Cut Fries, The One Salad, and MILKSHAKES.
If you love In-N-Out Burgers, you have got to try Tucker's! The restaurant is sleek and modern with a blue and red color scheme (that I love) for their signs and cups. In big bright red neon, the restaurant boasts... EAT LOCAL. And you can't get more local than the onion burger. The onion burger was invented out of necessity during the depression and has a long history here in Oklahoma. And the folks at Tucker's are definitely doing it right. They want to keep it simple and do what they do well. Their buns are fresh made from local bakery Prairie Thunder. The meat comes from a farmer just on the other side of the Kansas border. The cheese on the burger... American. I'm told because it's classic!
I took my sister to Tucker's about a year ago and she fell in love. And I might add she doesn't live that far from an In-N-Out burger. Yet, every time she's in town, she demands Tucker's. She's also a big foodie with a resume in food writing, so she knows her stuff.
So let's get to the Mother Tucker. It is the "Mother of all Tucker's" and is the biggest burger I've tried to eat.. ever. The Mother Tucker is three quarter pound patties of hamburger, ONIONS, tomato, lettuce, jalapeno, cheese, pickles, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. Phew!! It weighs about 1.6 pounds!!!! It's quite the hardy meal.
At Tucker's, the mission is fast, friendly, and fun. And I promise, it's all those things. And if you don't feel like taking on the Mother Tucker, the single cheeseburger is delish! You can also get a turkey burger wrapped in lettuce leaves if you're trying to be healthy. :)
Keep your cup for when you make a return visit as part of the Refill Our Community program. When you buy a 99-cent refill, 50-cents will go to a neighborhood school.
Do not leave without fries and a yummy milkshake. It is pure happiness!
Burgers run from $5-$9.
See you tonight! Jaime
