TULSA, Okla. — Mother Road Market is getting a new tenant this fall.
The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation announced McNellie’s Group is bringing a new burger concept to the food hall called Howdy Burger.
We're told the concept is a tribute to the classic roadside burger stands that fed hungry travelers decades ago while they traveled Route 66.
“The McNellie’s Group is excited to introduce Howdy Burger to Tulsa. An old fashioned flat-topped cheeseburger, served on a Martin’s potato bun, will be the star of Howdy Burger’s focused menu. We think this classically-inspired burger stand will be right at home in Route 66’s coolest new culinary landmark, Mother Road Market,” said Ben Alexander, VP of Culinary Operations for the McNellie’s Group.
Howdy Burger’s menu will feature single, double or triple-patty burgers with traditional toppings like cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles, plus a special Howdy sauce. A vegetarian burger option will be on the menu. Classic shoe-string fries will be available as a side, and freshly squeezed lemonade will be the house beverage. The concept will also present a two-egg breakfast sandwich on homemade challah/croissant bread with sausage or bacon and cheese.
Howdy Burger is expected to open in fall 2019. It will be located between Chicken and the Wolf and Nice Guys Shrimp Shack.
