Tucker’s Onion Burgers, 10-30-2013
Stop number two was suggested by Cameron’s wife Jen. Neither of them had been there before. I have once but it was a while ago, so definitely worth another shot.
They have two locations (which I didn’t realize), One At Classen curve just north of NW expressway, and the other on 23rd just west of Robinson. I only thought there was one, the one on 23rd. So when it was 15 minutes past the meetup time, and there was still no Jen or Cameron I started getting anxious. Turns out they were at the other location and had been for 20 minutes.
I drove up to the Classen Curve location. Soon enough we were ready to order. The atmosphere there was quiet and laid back. The feel is a modern meets classic diner look. They do not serve alcohol, which is unfortunate because a good dark lager would have gone really well with their burgers.
Tucker’s menu is nice, neat and simple. burgers, cheese burgers, fries and milkshakes. I went with the double cheese burger(with lettuce, tomatoes, grilled onions and jalapenos), and fries. You choose from the simple toppings list when you order.
As you can see they do not skimp on the meat and onions. It was a big heavy burger. It was nice and hot, but a bit on the greasy side. However it was a light clean grease. Not all dark and nasty. So it was fine.
The peppers they used were spicy, but not so bad they over powered the burger. The onions were done just right; not too chewy. The beef seemed to be really good quality. They are a local Okie place, and the say they use Okie raised beef.
The fries are tasty, although simple. I’m not a big fan of the super skinny fries though, but that is just personal preferance.
Overall, Tucker’s is a pretty good burger for the money, especially with the amount of food you get. The only thing to make it a bit better, I feel, would be to cut down the grease, and maybe add a bit more lettuce and tomatoes.
