Settle into a booth at one of these classic diners, serving up comfort food with a side of retro flair.

Sid’s Diner, El Reno, OK

26 of 24

The onion-fried burger was born in El Reno during the Great Depression when beef was scarce. People would thinly slice onions—approximately twice the weight of the meat—mash them into the beef to create a heavier patty, then toss them on a flat-top griddle. You’ll still find that recipe at Sid’s, which opened more than 25 years ago. You can also try the Coney Island, a hot dog slathered in homemade super-fine slaw. “That recipe also dates back to the Depression,” says Adam Hall, son of the owner Marty. “It’s so popular, we go through 35 gallons of it a week.”
