Harden's Hamburgers – The Bob Burger

By on October 23, 2008

The day we went to Harden’s may have been the last beautiful spring like day in Tulsa.  After a walk around the Tulsa Zoo, we decided to get a good Burger. Many friends have told us that Harden’s is exactly that place for good burgers. Since we were in the area, we decided to drop in and try them out.

The lady behind the counter told us that this was the best place to get burgers in Tulsa. That was exciting. I just asked for the most popular burger on the menu, so she hooked me up with the Bob burger. It was good, the first few bites reminded me of In-n-out burger in California but then I start to taste the extra spices and flavors from the patty. It lit up my palate to great bliss.  The burger was really good.  The great experience extended even to their onion rings and fries. I would say that Harden’s is great place to take guests so remember this spot. Oh yeah, I hear the chill is really good too.

    Hardens is back to curly fries which is better than the frozen regular fries they had before. These are dry though. My family likes the original ones Mr. Harden started with. Its just not the same and you dont get enough. The burgers used to be my favorite but I believe Ikes has them beat.

    We visited the 4th & Sheridan location for lunch today, (December 29th and something was wrong! We waited in line for over 30 minutes, and after we ordered it took 40 minutes to get our food. The burgers were good (not as good as Scotts in Bixby or May’s in north Tulsa 30 years ago)but the curly fries were skimpy and not very warm. I’m also a little confused by the 25c extra for a drink refill. Sounds like they are nickel and dimeing you. The place was crowded but I have never been anywhere that it took this long to cook a hamburger. I probably won’t return.

    Redeemed a Groupon for 2 cheeseburger dinners. This was the basic 1/4 lb burger. I ordered my wife’s well done without cheese and and asked that her cheese be added to mine (assuming that it would be done with a touch of pink, as their sign promised). After a long wait, both came out well done (maybe even overdone) and without cheese at all. Fries were warm, not hot. Altogether very disappointing. You would think that they would try to put their best forward on a Groupon to make sure we returned. As it is, I would only return to give them a 2nd chance, not because we were impressed and wanted to come back.

    Will never go back. Had the coupon and ordered cheeseburgers with everything. Waited more than 30 minutes to get a plain cheeseburge (not even mustard, much less the onions, pickles or lettuce) and it was fairly dry. Thought about taking it back but decided to cut my losses and get out. The curly fries were pretty decent but lost some heat waiting to be served. If they had been crowded I might have expected the wait, but there weren’t that many customers. I know why now. Johnny Harden would be ashamed to have his name associated with this place.

    I tried them because I purchased a Groupon. There was no problem using the Groupon. The decor is nice like a 50 s diner. It was not busy when we went, but had to wait in line 15 minutes behind 2 people because the cashier disappeared. The cashier/order taker sighed and was annoyed that we didn t want mustard on our burger & had to write a note on the ticket saying no mustard. Ok why was that so hard? To add lettuce to a burger it s $0.50 which is weird but ok… Then after 30 mins & two orders placed after us were delivered, I asked the lady at the counter if she could check on our order please. She pointed at the 7year old waitress & said she delivers the orders. I said ok so I should ask her,& the lady walked off. So I went to the 7 year old & said that the lady said to ask you to check on our order & she was puzzled. Yes you are reading this correct their 1 & only employee not behind the counter is a 7 year old girl. She was compitent in delivering the food and cleaning the tables, but that s just weird having only a kid run the front of the restaurant.The burger was fine but not amazing, but the fries were amazing just like Ron s Hamburger s fries. It s a shame their customer service is so bad or else I would have gone their again.
