Meers, Oklahoma: Home of the World Famous Meers Burger

A mighty plateful of burger by any standard, in a tiny town far from anywhere. Building exterior is one big photo-op.

Meers Store - Meersburger

My father-in-law was giving us a tour of local sites and brought us by Meers after a day in the Wichita Reserve. Yum Yum! The Meersburger is made from grass-fed longhorn beef and brought to you on old dented up pie pans. Don't skip the beer either. They also serve some of the best onion rings I've ever had. The old store fronts are just the beginning when it comes to charms. The interior probably looks as it did back when mail actually came through it.

Meers Store - Meersburger

The Meers store was not open when we went probably due to inclement weather (there was snow on the ground, rare for southwest Oklahoma), but many cats were on the property and other cars were driving by asking us if the store was open that day. A passerby in a car told us that usually there are a bunch of people at the restaurant. The Meers store is famous for serving large Texas longhorn burgers. The store looks exactly the same as when I went to see it in 1988.

There is still an old parking meter in front of the store. I guess it is there because Oklahoma is where the parking meter originated. It is out in the middle of nowhere in the beautiful Wichita Mountains.

Meers Store - Meersburger

The town of Meers is located at the north edge of the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge, near Lawton OK. As I recall from the late '70s, the town had only 2 or 3 buildings, one of which was the Meers Store, which also had a restaurant and post office in it. I had been driving around the wildlife refuge and stopped because the store, in the middle of nowhere, had a parking meter in front of it! (Two parking meters on a later visit). The restaurant served a 9-inch diameter hamburger called the Meersburger; I recommend it!

[George Adams, 05/26/2003]

There's some dispute over the diameter of the Meersburger -- some say it's only 7 inches wide -- but it's a plateful. The Meers Store and Restaurant is also known for its seismograph, which keeps tabs on the nearby Meers Fault.
