Eat This: the John T. Edge Burger at Hog and Hominy

Posted by Holly Whitfield | September 16th 2013 3454 0

Over the weekend, I finally got around to trying the much-hyped Oklahoma-style John T. Edge burger from Hog and Hominy.

(If you’d like to see a much better photo of it, look here.)

The burger comes served one way: 5 ounces of ground, locally sourced beef topped with onions (that get sort of smashed into the beef during the cooking process), shredded lettuce, and a slice of American cheese with mustard on a toasted bun.

Despite it’s formal first-and-last name, John T. Edge burger is more Soul Burger than chef’s burger. It’s relatively small, but the meat was flavorful. I found it to be a little bit salty and kind of a mess to eat, but both are issues I’m willing to overlook. After two cups of summer brew, I was ready to declare it the greatest burger I had ever eaten on a restaurant patio after 11 p.m.
