5020 N. Meridian Ave.

949-2889

An Oklahoma City mainstay for more than 20 years, Bunny’s has perfected the onion burger and offers numerous variations on the homespun classic, all in an old-school cafe atmosphere. Saddle on up to the bar and order a #24 basket ($9.75), a double-patty onion burger stuffed with fixings and a generous side of fresh-cut fries. If you happen to be on the south side of town, Bunny’s newest location is at 1023 S. Meridian Ave.

Bell Street Onion Burgers

117 N. Bell Ave., Shawnee 

395-9988

Bell Street Onion Burgers is the latest addition to Shawnee’s ever-growing historic downtown district, capturing the small-town friendliness and flavor of a classic burger stand with an eye for big-city invention and flair. The local fave is the Juicy Lucy ($7.99), a double patty onion burger filled with American cheese and butter. Yes, butter. If you’re the health-conscious sort, adding a side of fried green beans ($3.99) is probably the menu’s best bet.

HD’s Onion Burger

12417 N. Rockwell Ave. 

621-9522

A family-owned eatery, HD’s has all the greasy-spoon edibles that one could want — hot dogs, gyros, hamburger steak, chili and so on — but what really draws the crowds are the fat and juicy onion burgers at great prices. A cheeseburger, for example, is only $3.35. You might as well throw down another buck and get that burger topped with tangy house slaw, providing an unexpected kick. And don’t miss the (non-onion) selection of homemade cakes.

Tasty Burger

15924 SE 29th St., Choctaw 

390-3663

Located
in an unassuming white house with the words “Tasty Burger” politely
drawn across the top, this Choctaw joint is about as no-frills as it
comes, except for the menu, of course. Offering numerous specialties,
the onion-fried double cheeseburger ($6.38) featuring crispy,
caramelized onions is worth the drive out of OKC, as are the homemade,
hand-cut ultimate chips loaded with chili, cheese, guacamole and
jalapeño chiles ($4.99).

15th Street Grill

1204 E. Lockheed Drive, Midwest City

736-6575

With
a Harley-Davidson theme that’ll rev anyone’s engine, 15th Street Grill
is bound to be the next big onion burger destination. With patties of
meat and slices of onions that literally spill out of the sandwich, the
popular Tinker special features the aforementioned burger, chili cheese
fries and a drink for only $7.79. For the fat boy in each of us, add an
order of fried pickles ($3.49) to take home and munch on later.

The Cow Calf-Hay

3409 Wynn Drive, Edmond 

thecowcalfhay.net 

509-2333

The
Cow’s fried onion cheeseburger ($8.99) is Certified Angus Beef
smothered in onions as well as melted American cheese and your choice of
dressing. For an extra 79 cents, top it with a fried egg to add a
singularly unique flavor. Don’t forget the criss-cut sweet potato fries
($4.99) either. For a real gut-buster, try the Six-Shooter Challenge; if
you eat a cheeseburger with six beef patties and all the fixings, as
well as a side order in 45 minutes, it’s free.

Barry’s Grill

3124 N. May Ave. 

948-7878

Driving
down N. May Avenue, it’s impossible to miss the Barry’s Grill sign from
the road. The large green sign is adorned with a photo of a large
hamburger and the words “Old- Fashioned.” The old-fashioned onion burger
($3.78) is your granddad’s burger, and that’s a good thing. Pair it
with zesty, hand-cut onion rings ($2.29) to make it even more delicious.
Also try the hand-cut fries, another speciality of the house.
