Nothing Like a Good Burger

There are many wonderful things in life, especially when it comes to food! Now, I like all sorts of food!! There are numerous meals that I have had that have almost put me in a coma because my mind can not comprehend so much deliciousness!! Also, there are so many foods that I want to try that cost three arms and a couple of legs. However, truth be told, there is nothing quite like a good burger!

I’m not going to say that a burger is the best thing on earth, no. What I am going to say is burgers are awesome! I love burgers, all kinds and all prices! The cheap burger from the diner down the road, amazing. The not so cheap burger from a fancy restaurant downtown, amazing. The truth is, give me a good burger and I will be happy!

There are a few restaurants in town that serve up some burgers that will seduce you into eating way more that your stomach actually desires. I will say that I have not eaten every burger in town so there may be some even better than the ones I have had, but alas I am unaware of them! Here is a short little list of a few good places to grab a burger in the Tulsa area. These are in no particular order.

1. Louie’s
– This place has some awesome, greasy burgers. I will say that they can be so greasy they will soak the bun, and I am not a fan of that happening. However, the burgers are still so good! They have a good amount of burger choices as well, but you can never go wrong getting the Big Lou.

Yeah that’s great burger. It’s very reasonably priced too at only $7.99. Plus, I like the fries. Here’s another shot of the burger I got from the Stillwater location. It’s called the Theta Burger.

It was awesome.

2. Fat Guy’s
– Now Fat Guy’s burgers may reward you with a heart attack, but you will die happy. In pain, but still happy! Add a side of fries and, well you will die happier. Not only does this place have some good burgers but they are also in a great location! Oh yeah, don’t forget to try the Fat Guy Challenge. Its like eating pounds of greasy food in less than an hour. No, I haven’t done it. Should I? Yeah I think so.

3. McNellie’s
– Not my favorite burger in town, but if you come on a Wednesday they are only $3 plus 50 cents if you want cheese. Oh yeah, that comes with a side of either pub fries or sweet potato fries.. The burgers are pretty good too, not the best, but pretty good. I do love mcNellie’s, it’s such a cool place. If I’m in tulsa on a Wednesday there is a good chance I will be at McNellie’s for dinner.

4. The Tavern on Brady
– Amazing burger. Absolutely incredible. Inexplicably scrumptious. This burger will set you back $13 but it is well worth it, maybe not economically, but you shouldn’t measure life economically! It is hard to beat this burger. Yes, it’s made with a homemade challah bun. Yes, that’s mushroom cognac cream on top. Wait, what kind of cheese is on it? Oh yeah, Stilton. Don’t forget that the patty is made with ground short rib, chuck, and brisket. Eat it. If you don’t eat it you will regret it for eternity. If you don’t wanna shell out $13 then come after nine in the evening and get the burger for $6. That’s a good deal. Actually, it’s a great deal!!

The Beginning

First post. I guess I should describe this blog a little bit. This is my first attempt at blogging, and of course, this blog about food and drink. Simple enough. I’m not sure everything that it will necessarily contain, but you can bet it will talk about the deliciousness of food or drink. You can expect a wide range of food topics, maybe a few recipes, and maybe some videos of me whipping up something very, very tasty. Well, no promises on how it will taste.

On that note I must warn you – I am the best chef to ever touch a hot skillet. False. I am not an expert when it comes to food. I just like putting it in my mouth. So, this may be the most unprofessional blog that you have ever laid eyes on, but don’t let that stop you. Lay eyes on it more.

Now that you know all of that, I hope that you decide to keep up with all of the trash that I have to say. How often will that trash be posted to this blog? I don’t know. It is verrryyyy possible that this is the only post that I will ever make. However, I hope that is not the case. I plan to plaster all of my food musings to this outlet as often as possible. That may be once a week, that may be every day. So, what will my first real post be about? It’s a mystery. Maybe I’ll cook something up and let you all read about it, or maybe I’ll write about the history of food. Unfortunately, all that I have eaten so far today is a protein bar and Cracker Barrel leftovers – country fried steak, fried okra, sweet carrots, and biscuits to be exact. If you are wondering, it tastes better when it has not been microwaved says captain obvious.

So, restaurant reviews, recipe reviews, random ramblings, and maybe my own attempts to whip up some food myself. Most of the restaurants being reviewed will likely be restaurants located right here in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area, simply because that is where I live. However, it won’t only be limited to that.

Anyways, if you have any ideas, or simply want to tell me anything, you can do it in the comments, of you can shoot an email my way at foodtrashblog@gmail.com

Food. Drink. Whatever.

P.S. Since it is the Christmas season, and I LOVE CHRISTMAS, you can expect some holiday related posts soon. Enjoy.
