The double-cheeseburger at Bar Arbolada is pretty good…but is it the best in all of America?
That’s the claim that Food Network shill Alton Brown made on his Twitter when in town recently for, I guess, a stage performance. It’s a lofty claim that left me asking if he’s been smoking something other than brisket:
I’m not sure how many times Brown has been to Oklahoma—let alone Oklahoma City—but I’m willing to bet that he’s tried very few of this city’s truly remarkable cheeseburgers, more than likely eating at Arbolada because it was moderately close to his hotel. But far be it for me to speculate on such things.
But his tweet, at least, gave me the forceful push to finally stop at Bar Arbolada, 637 W. Main Street, one Saturday to try this storied Double Burger ($8.00)...
