The man behind these popular fast-food burger joints has been in the business for more than 50 years. And with more than seven restaurants in the greater Oklahoma City metropolitan area, it is easy to see how Johnnie has remained in business for so many decades. The burgers are better than your standard fast-food favorite and here, Johnnie's gimmick is that he grates his cheddar cheese. Nonetheless, a place that has onion rings that can fit around your wrist merits all the attention it deserves. In addition to burgers and fries, the kitchen serves sandwiches, salads, chili and hot dogs also.
