The Experience: I checked out the new Tulsa Drillers ballpark ONEOK Field, primarily for the advertised of $1 hot dogs and drinks (I didn’t expect $1 beers, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t include that in my wish list). But as an avid baseball fan I was almost excite ball. Well, the $1 hot dog thing was either a marketing scheme to get people to come out to the park, or they had far more interest in hot dogs than they anticipated because by the time the I got there, there were no $1 hot dogs in sight.
You don’t have to worry about me starving in this hot dogless minor league baseball paradise. I had heard from that a burger joint was open right next to ONEOK Field called Fat Guy’s Burger Bar.
Burger Ordered: Jalapeño Relish Cheeseburger
The Taste: You order your burger a la carte and choose which toppings/condiments you want on your burger. From what I could tell, they won’t even judge you if you want ketchup on your burger. The highlight from the burger toppings for me was the jalapeño relish. I’m not a big fan of relish, but I love jalapeños, so I did some long division and figured out that mathematically, at the very least, I should like jalapeño relish. As it turns out, I do.
Now I’m not going to lie and say Fat Guy’s has vaulted itself to be the greatest burger in Tulsa, but it is a unique place and definitely a fine substitute for being late to $1 Hot Dogs!
The Verdict: You could do a lot worse than having Fat Guy’s Burger Bar as your ONEOK backup plan.
Fat Guy’s Burger Bar is located at 140 North Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
