I’ve said it before, there are lots of burger places in the Oklahoma City metro. Almost too many, most are just ok but a few are my favorites. Patty Wagon is tied for first place in my burger world along with Tucker’s Onion burger.
I was first turned on to this place by a friend who had been coming here since it opened. So one night we tried it and I fell in love. Located on May Ave just south of NW 36th Street in what was an old Whataburger, this is just a straight up no-frills burger joint. A good sized menu with burgers featuring different toppings and weekly specials that are always original but my go to burger is the Jailhouse Blues- big beef patty, lettuce, tomato, sauce, big chunks of blue cheese, and a couple of slices of thick cut bacon.
Service is always quick- wrapped in foil, my burger is just peeking out of the spaces just waiting for me to devour it. Bun is of a sweet bread variety, toasted so it has that buttery goodness that mixes well with the big chunks blue cheese. The sauce has just enough kick to it but it only accentuates the taste of the burger. The think cut Applewood bacon is also a delicacy when placed on the burger, really brings the flavors together. My only real complaint is sometimes the veggies can be a bit overwhelming but I can remove them if I think it’s too much. Since I’m burned out on fries, I get onion rings. These are more of a tempura based coating than the typical Sonic type onion rings. Always a big pile of them to sit aside my burger.
My husband has tried many of the other burgers and even some of the specials. He always likes them. Now Mae has to order a kids corn dog every time, just don’t get it- take the kid to a burger place and she wants fair food but at least she’s eating. So I highly recommend a stop giving it 5 strips of bacon.
