I was in El Reno, Oklahoma -- a delightful town west of OKC -- and asked for a recommendation. Everyone said 'Go to Robert's Grill'. I did and was so Glad. Their version of the onion burger is simple and tasty. The onions are plentiful, the ground meat is fresh, and you sit on bar stools from the 1950's to... More

Dropped in after a referral from a local. Place is small, cramped and is showing its age but the food is good and you won't leave hungry. The menu is simple and posted on the wall. There is a long bar to sit at or take your meal to go. The two guys working were very nice and the service... More

If looking for the best tasting fried onion burger this is your place. Stool seating is limited so don't be surprised if you have to wait a bit.

A good friend recommended Robert's Grill. It's definitely "old school" and the grill is certainly seasoned, no doubt. Ordered the double cheeseburger with onions. The patties were decent size and it tasted like real beef. Did not get much of the cheese infusion that you would expect from a double cheeseburger but good nonetheless. The seating was at the counter... More

One of the best Fried Onion Burgers is served here. It has an a classic feel to the place with a very friendly staff. Don't forget the coney slaw dog and be sure to add chili. Recommend you share the basket of fries. Enjoy every bite with a smile!

I have eating here more times then i want to think about. This place has been here forever and there's a good reason why: the onion burgers are the best. Other places are good, but they don't compare. The coney especially are great. Breakfast is the best place in town for breakfast.

We stopped at Robert's as a part of our road trip to the Grand Canyon and stopping at as many historic Route 66 diners and attractions we could find. The food was great, the grill cook was a delightful conversationalist and proud to be cooking at Robert's. If you are put off by less than modern facilities and can't get... More

Stopped here as Sid's was closed on a Sunday, making our decision easier! A local suggested the onion burger & coney w slaw. I got the coney, hubby onion burger, daughter chili burger, son burger, plus fries & tater tots. Food was very good, fresh & tasty, plus cheap. The 2 young guys working the grill & counter were awesome,... More

Their business model is simple. Sit on a barstool and order direct from the kitchen in front of you. Orders are correct and quick. I order extra coney slaw to take home. They will cook my thin fries extra crispy too. My first trip was with my dad at age 4. Brings back good memories on every visit. A "must... More

This is where I ate lunch during my high school years in the early 60s. It's still the same. El Reno is famous for its fried onion burgers and this is one of several places to get them. No tables, just a counter with stools. Also, the coneys--hot dogs with chili and the best mustard based slaw in the world... More
