Every Oklahoman loves a good onion burger! Although it's not the official state food, it's definitely a close second. But what restaurant in Oklahoma serves up the best onion burger?

If you're not familiar, Oklahoma's onion burger is one of the greats.

Recently, the Oklahoma onion burger has wildly increased across the country, maybe even the globe. But Oklahoma is the birth place of the iconic onion burger. It came about during the Great Depression. A local restaurant owner from El Reno found that if they mixed onions with the ground beef, they wouldn't have to use as much beef. Then the famous Oklahoma onion burger was born.

The Oklahoma onion burger is probably one of the most simple yet most delicious burgers you'll ever have. The ingredient list is sparce: buns, beef, onions and cheese. That's it. Perfection on a bun.

So who's making the best onion burger in Oklahoma?

The birth place of the Oklahoma onion burger is El Reno, so your assumption would be right if you're thinking the best onion burger is located in its hometown. There's a few options in El Reno for an onion burger, and many people have their opinion about which one is doing it the best.

But there are some places in Oklahoma City that are serving some top tier onion burgers. So El Reno has some competition outside its city limits.
