The Burger from The Museum Cafe

Creative Burgers Vol 2

In this second installment of creative burgers in Oklahoma, Justin Coleman and Undrell Maholmes go on a taste adventure to S&B’s Burger Joint at their original location in Oklahoma City, then travel to Yukon for the Eggcellent Burger at The Miller Grill, make a quick stop for ice cream at Vacca Territory along Route 66, and end back to OKC for The Burger at The Museum Cafe at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

Watch the first volume of creative burgers for more restaurants with great burgers. We do have plans for more volumes next year. We did discuss the idea of doing a Route 66 burger special. If you love what we’re doing, join me on Patreon for early access to my episodes as well as bonus content.

Happy Adventures!

Vacca Territory

In Yukon, Vacca Territory crafts handmade small batch Italian semifreddo (ice cream), specialty coffees, cinnamon rolls, breakfast sandwiches, scones, muffins, cookies, and more. In this interview, Mike Gray talks about the creamery and coffeehouse located on Route 66.

I personally had both a mocha and the peanut butter ice cream, which you can see pictured in the video thumbnail. They were delicious! If you find yourself in Yukon or doing a Route 66 road trip, give the whole building they’re in a visit. There’s another restaurant, Yocal, that I’ve heard good things about, but they are in the process of moving to a bigger spot in the same building, so there may be another story soon.

The Miller Grill and a Yes! Science! Update

For comfort food on a gigantic scale, Jason McCormack at The Miller Grill serves up massive chicken-fried steaks, Indian tacos as big as your head, pancakes a foot wide, and a burger named The Heart-Attack Burger. Located near Route 66 in Yukon, there’s no shame in bringing a friend to share a meal.

Season two of Yes! Science! is in filming. I’m officially referring to this next batch of videos as season two instead of season one, part two as I’ve gotten some new equipment and the quality is improved. You can get super early access to the first profile on a Hydrometeorologist in Norman, Oklahoma over at Patreon. If all goes well, new videos will be released in May. It depends if I’m able to get enough interviews in April done before I leave in May to film Colorful Escapes. On the subject of Colorful Escapes, except news on that very soon.
