Okay burger

This was a so so hamburger, not much flavor or sear on the burger. I was expecting more flavor in the special sauce. It was basically mayo and a ton of it. I had to take napkins and wipe most of the sauce off and in doing so, I also lost most of my lettuce. All in all I was... read more

We had to stop by an old favorite restaurant from 20 years ago during a recent trip home for the holidays. This restaurant never changes, I am glad to say. The Oh Boy burgers are as juicy and sloppy as I remember. The extra sauce is great for dipping french fries. It's not a fancy restaurant, but it is clean... More

On a visit to family we were told that we had to try the Oh Boy Hamburger at Midway. We all ordered hamburgers and can't say that I found it to be that great. I ordered the Super Oh Boy and it was good but not great. I also ordered the onion rings and it was a small order of... More

The Oh Boy is almost as much a part of Elyria as Heman Ely! The double decker with the Oh boy sauce was around as long as the Big Mac. Only the Oh Boy is better!

Small little diner that takes you back to a different era...Not haute cuisine by any standards, but comfort food at its best. Fried everything, oh boy sauce on the burgers, fresh pies...standards that grandma used to make like chicken paprikash and stuffed cabbage. Good food, plenty of it, and reasonable prices.

This place has been around for ever. That should say a lot right there. They have daily specials ranging from chicken popper cosh to fresh Lake Erie Perch. I go for the Oh Boy burger. Their sauce is amazing. I usually buy some on my way out. They have a huge menu so even the pickiest eater can find something... More

The oh boy burger is a taste less hunk of meat despite what Michael Simon says on TV I will not eat one again.

This restaurant has not changed in years! Sure they update the paint and paper on the walls, but other than that, it's the same old charm. Oh Boy Sauce is great and I would eat it on just about everything. And they will service it with just about anything so that works for me! Staff always seem to remember you... More
