Update: Closed as of August 2018.
Once again, another place I’ve heard a lot about and finally went there a few weeks ago. With two locations in the metro, we visited the original location- a small shack on NW 63rd St just east of Western on the north side of the road. The building really is small and the closest parking lot is for small vehicles only. So if you have a bigger car or SUV, park near the bank and walk down the stairs to the restaurant. We were there around 1p on a nice Saturday afternoon, so we got in quick.
Best known for the burgers, they do have hot dogs, sandwiches, and even chicken fried steak. But we were there for the burgers. I had the Mushroom, Bacon, Swiss burger. Cooked to a medium well, it had a good flavor mostly because the meat is fresh. All the meat used for hamburgers and steaks come from the No-Name Ranch in Wynnewood, OK. So the cow that it came from was probably walking around a field the week before you eat it. You really can tell a difference when the meat is that fresh, just has a different taste to it. My husband had a Wynnewood Thunder, a burger with hot links, chili, and a fried egg on top of it all. I tried a bite, it was definitely interesting, not like anything I’ve had before. Mae got crazy and had a patty melt, she never wants to eat anything other than mac and cheese. But she must have liked it because she didn’t complain and ate everything. We all shared a basket of fries and onion rings. The fries were great and the onion rings were pretty good.
Overall, everything was good. Service was great and since we were there on my husbands birthday, he got a free slice of buttermilk pie. My only complaint is that the building is small and it’s hard to get in when its busy but then the building was built in 1946 as a bar, so I do like that it still has a historical feel. I give Irma’s five strips of bacon.
Address: Original- 1035 NW 63rd St., Oklahoma City; Irma’s II in the Plaza Court building at 1120 N Classen Dr., Oklahoma City.
