It’s No Surprise That The Locals Love This Tiny Oklahoma Restaurant
There’s no doubt about it — Oklahomans are loyal to their favorite eateries. And there’s also no doubt that the tiny but beloved Sid’s Diner in El Reno is worthy of all the love the locals show it. Not only is it famous for the legendary Fried Onion Burger, it’s an all-around fantastic place to dine.
Sid's Diner is small in size, but large in popularity.
Since their 1989 beginnings, they've been wildly popular.
Space is limited, so if you manage to snag a seat, you're lucky.
You can always get your burgers ad fries to-go, but there's something special about dining inside this homey space.
This might be a local favorite, but the burger joint has actually received national attention.
Sid's was listed as a top place to eat on foodnetwork.com, and it was even featured on an episode of Man Vs. Food.
Everything on the menu here is scrumptious, but if you come, you should really try the famous Fried Onion Burger.
The onions are cooked into the beef patty, and it's absolutely delicious.
The fried onion burger's history actually goes all the way back to the Great Depression.
It was created in El Reno during that time period out of necessity. Onions were cheap, and meat was expensive, so the onion burger helped stretch the food budget. Of course, those days are long gone, but the delicious fried onion burger remains a local delight.
Marty Hall is the owner, founder, and all-around burger master.
If you're lucky, you might still spot him in the kitchen cooking your meal.
Sid's Diner is open Monday - Saturday from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.
And once you try a Fried Onion Burger, some fries and a creamy shake, you'll understand why so many Oklahomans fall in love at first bite.
Address: 300 South Choctaw Avenue, El Reno, OK, 73036
