Guide Review - Irma's Burger Shack
Don't let the name fool you too much as far as the original location on NW 63rd and Western. You won't be dining in a crude, teetering hovel of wood. Instead, it's a casual wooden diner with tables outside, a small bar area and a couple of comfortable dining rooms. Slide into a soft booth and relax.
The menu isn't extensive. It includes a few sandwiches, some dinner items such as chicken fried steak and, of course, hamburgers. There are couple of salads for the more health conscious, but I can't speak to their quality. See, I go to Irma's for the burgers. Get the "No Name" burger, made from special beef from the No Name Ranch south of Pauls Valley, and add shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato and one of several great beer choices.
If you want something different, though, Irma's has equally delicious chili that doesn't get the recognition it deserves, taking a backseat to the notable burgers. The Irma dog with chili comes with cheese and grilled onions. You won't be disappointed.
The prices at Irma's are in line with what one would expect, very reasonable at 5-7 bucks for a hamburger, a couple extra for fries. Dinner meals run in the $8-15 range. The food comes out fast, and the wait staff is efficient, if not even a bit untalkative.
