Surprisingly, I got a few requests for posts about local stuff around OKC, and at first I was like, heck no. But then I thought about it, and it's actually a good idea, because despite what you may think and even despite what I thought when I moved here, Oklahoma City is actually really cool.
One of the things OKC has that I think is awesome is a focus on keeping it local. For $10, you can buy a "Keep it Local" card, which gives you discounts and other perks to local OKC shops, restaurants, and other businesses. You can find the entire list of vendors on the Keep it Local website. My goal for 2014 is to check out as many of these restaurants and shops as I can! (*This is not a sponsored post. Keep it Local has no idea who I am.)
Recently I met some friends for a weekday lunch at S&B Burger Joint, and Jordan was able to come too because he was off work that day AND my Keep it Local card got us 10% off our lunch. Winning.
I was also winning because I got the boys to take a picture outside the restaurant. You can see how happy they were about it.

Don't mind my ghetto 1998 phone there to the right.
The burger menu is full of crazy twists. Like the one with peanut butter on it...? Kind of scared to try it, but I also think you can't go wrong with peanut butter. Kind of like bacon, which coincidentally, is also on the peanut butter burger. If that's not heart healthy, I don't know what is.
There's a burger called "Hot Lips," which I told Jordan he should try and then winked at him just to make sure he caught my drift. But he went in a different direction and got the burger called "The Fatty," so there's that.
One thing I love about the menu is that all the burgers come in regular or slider size, which are half the size and half the price of the regular. I got two sliders because I wanted to try different kinds. And then of course we had to get the side of fried green beans because, well duh. This is Oklahoma. WE FRY EVERYTHING.
Review in brief: S&B Burger Joint is delicious, and I will be back again. The fried green beans are YUM, and you should try the sweet potato fries, because they're really good too.
Does your city keep it local?
What are your thoughts about peanut butter on a burger?
