At Dan's Ol' Time Diner, low-key mixes well with high-quality burgers

Dan's Ol' Time Diner is a low-key, high-quality burger joint in south Oklahoma City on Western Avenue. The menu isn't too complex, with onion burgers being the place's calling card, but at Dan's it isn't about how much you do, but how well you do it.

It's this hometown atmosphere that keeps loyal customers coming back.

"It's loud," joked a laughing Lydia. "No, everyone seems friendly, it's very talkative. We have lots of families, lots of older people — they're regulars. We have a lot of regulars."

Some are even quite dedicated.

"We have a little old man named Jack who comes every day," Lydia said. "He's our favorite."

The staff is young, helpful and energetic. They're quick to greet customers with a smile and appear genuinely friendly, adding an infusion of youth to the nostalgic venue.

Dan's is also a great place to eat on a budget, as a burger and fries generally go for around $5. The kid-friendly menu and low prices make it an ideal place for families.

Dan's seems to attract people of all ages, especially those who want a dose of the local buzz.

There also is a television, making it a good place to grab a bite to eat while you watch the game.
