I knew when I walked in it was going to be good, just the smell took me back to places my parents would take me when I was a kid. It didn't disappoint! We didn't get there until 2, and with them closing at 3...we thought we had plenty of time. After we ordered our food they only had a couple of pounds of meat left. They ran out while we were there and still had people coming in wanting to order. I had the half-pound big mama with cheese. It comes with everything. We had fries and a drink. Less than 20$ for fantastic burgers. I was only able to go since it was my day off hours are 10:30-3 or when they run out of meat. Cooked right in front of you when you order. It's a small place with a couple of tables outside. They were doing a booming business and I can see why. Loved it so much!!!More

We stopped by Bill's Jumbo Burgers today. They were delicious. They do not start your hamburger until you order. The buns are grilled. The onions are chopped as is the lettuce. This is a small hamburger stand that has maybe 6 stools inside and about...3 tables outside. This popular place is a definitely good place for an old fashioned good hamburger.More

Best hamburgers I have ever had. When home on leave in the 80s, this was the place that I always had to eat at.

My friend introduced me to Bill's at the age of 10, in the early 1970s, when we walked from her house at 1st and Utica. The burgers were good then, and other than the price, not much has changed in almost 50 years. Bill's is...a "hole-in-the-wall" burger joint along the I-244 access road just east of Utica. The building isn't much to look at and it is tiny -- only 4 or 5 places to sit at the bar, so do yourself a favor and call in your order for pickup to go, or grab a seat at one of the picnic benches outside if you enjoy the view of the expressway while you eat. The burgers are outstanding! Fresh, Oklahoma-style hamburgers cooked on a flat griddle with onions grilled in, and the bun also griddled so that the edges are all crispy and yummy. They range in size from 1/3 pound to a full pound of meat. Generally, the 1/3 pound Big Daddy is plenty for me. The french fries are "real" fries -- made from fresh-cut potatoes and not poured frozen from a bag. They are best when fresh from the fryer as they quickly become a little limp and soggy from the steam as they cool. Bill's Burgers is one of the longstanding Tulsa burger icons. If you haven't tried it, you should!More

My Dad took me to Bill's Jumbo Hamburger in 1960. I was Five. I took my Son when he was a young boy and now we are raising our Grandson (Son/Daddy pasted away last July of an illness). We took Grandson today he (12 yrs)...has determined this is the very best burger he has ever had. Generation enjoy this terrific burger joint got to pass it on. Meet a lot of nice folks in line along with the folks that work there. A must to experience. Go to enjoy Tulsa Amazing Icon wait in line and watch the burgers being cooked.More

Wish this place had later hours because they have really good burgers and onion rings and go early because its small so you might want to get it to go or on a nice day to sit outside

Generations of my family loves Bills. I always get a burger with Ketchup only, French fries (delicious) and side of pickles. Adding to the charm is an occasional sign saying they are closed due to running out of meat or a fishing trip. Just love...this place.More

I've lived in Tulsa my entire life. I always though got this place was out of business as it's always closed when driving by. Apparently they are alive and well. They open Monday-Friday for lunch & close once they run out of food. The burgers...are tasty! The onion rings are very tasty. A lot of folks love the fries. I didn't find them too remarkable, but they do the job. In the picture below is the 1/2lb big mama dwarfed by the 2lb double okie! I'm not sure where my friend put that double okie. He said it was a little challenging to attack, but he conquered it after a half hour. Do yourself a favor & get once of these delightful burgers! Most importantly take cash!More

We went into a small restaurant with minimal seating 19 people deep! And we were met with pleasant smiles, friendly service and delicious food served quickly! We had some sitting inside, some outside and we had a blast! And we loved that there was scripture...in the walls and the cook happily sang praise to Jesus as he made our food.More

We take several car trips each year, and trying to find good food in a strange area is difficult. I live in the Tulsa Area and would like to see people traveling through this area have a positive opinion of our town and its food....Bills Hamburgers is the hidden treasure! This family owned and operated small hamburger stand that has been in business for for ever has without a doubt the best Hamburgers in town, if not the state! This OLD YELLOW stand only has 6 or 8 stools, and barely room for them, a couple of picnic tables out side, and is only open for lunch, during the week! Just off 244, the lines can be long, it's best to call in your order 15 minutes before arrival to avoid the wait! Enjoy this REAL OLD FASHIONED HAMBURGER!More
