3. Hank’s Hamburgers

This is an iconic spot for some of the best burgers in Tulsa. Hank’s opened in 1949 and is still going strong. They’re famous for their Big Okie, which has four quarter-pound patties, four slices of cheese, mustard, pickles, fried or raw onions, lettuce and tomato.

It’s a challenge to finish, but you’ll be seriously satisfied if you do so.

Another Tulsa icon, open since 1956, Brownie’s Hamburger Stand is one of the oldest burger joints in town. Brownie’s is best known for their amazing burgers and refreshing homemade root beer.

5. Ron’s Hamburgers & Chili

It’s all about the Ron’s Special here: a one-of-a-kind cheeseburger with the onions fried into the meat then topped with bacon bits. They then throw on a slice of Cure 81 ham with pepper jack and American cheese in a bun with mustard, mayonnaise, pickle, lettuce and tomato.

There’s now 19 other Ron’s Hamburgers and Chili restaurants throughout Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas, so you won’t be stuck for your Ron’s burger fix.

7. McNellie’s Pub

There’s two of these great pubs in Tulsa, both serving up burgers and good vibes all day long. McNellie’s (as the name suggests) is an Irish bar, with a really great food menu.

For a real treat order the indulgent Foie Gras burger: it’s a grass-fed patty topped with Monterey Jack cheese, foie gras butter and fried jalapenos.
