Thursday, my friend Melissa Martin, my daughter Logan and I were in Oklahoma City for the State Class A Fastpitch Championship Play-offs. We left ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in search of some lunch and stumbled onto Irma’s Burger Shack on NW 63rd.


We had never heard of the restaurant, but decided to give it a try. As well as classic burgers and fries, Irma’s offers several unique dishes such as White Trash Nachos (fries topped with grilled chicken, cheddar & pepper Jack cheese, beans, tomato, onion, sour cream, jalepenos, and a side order of salsa) and Irma’s Gumbo. Sides include fries, cole slaw, cottage cheese, fried okra, and Asian slaw.


We started our meal with some fried pickles. They were lightly breaded and deep fried and served with about 2 ounces of ranch. The pickles were soft, yet crisp and yummy. The coolness of the ranch was a nice contrast to the spicy-ness of the breading.

We each had a 5 ounce Irma Burger. It was custom cooked to our desired doneness. The burger also came with our own choices of custom topping including avocado, 4 different cheeses and chipotle ranch as well as regular toppings such as tomato, lettuce and onion. The lightly seasoned patty was thick and juicy even when cooked well done. Melissa had hers medium done and dry.




We also tried the onion rings and fries. The onion rings were huge—probably about 2-3 inches diameter each and about ¼” thick. They were lightly battered and deep fried. The batter wasn’t thick so it cooked quickly leaving the onion still firm, yet warmed.




Irma’s desserts include buttermilk pie, chocolate or coconut meringue pie, and pecan pie. We left no room for dessert, but plan to start with dessert first if we get an opportunity to eat at Irma’s again.


Irma’s Burger Shack also offers packaged beef from “NoName Ranch” in Wynnewood. The ranch’s cattle herd are fed “native grasses” supplemented with all natural grains and drink “fresh spring water.” The beef is free of pesticides, hormones and antibiotics.
