First Look: Bricktown Burgers to be Transformed into New Dominos Restaurant

A lot of folks were saddened as Dick Parr closed the doors at Bricktown Burgers in December. The restaurant was around for two decades and customers loved Dick’s fresh onion burgers and of course, they loved the man himself.

But truth be told, the restaurant was worn out looks wise and was never an architectural triumph. The restaurant only opened for lunch on weekdays, leaving Main Street pretty much dead at night and on weekends.

As I report in Thursday’s paper, a new Dominos “pizza theater” restaurant is set to open this summer at 300 E Main. The restaurant will be open at 10 a.m. every day, and open until 1 a.m. on weeknights and 2 a.m. on weekends. Some folks may have wished for a local restaurant in the space, but it’s inevitable that national brands are being attracted to Bricktown.

This location along Main Street, between Deep Deuce and Sheridan Avenue, the main drag in Bricktown, may be the best spot for an addition like Dominos. We still have a mostly local mix on Sheridan Avenue, and this Dominos will be add some much needed life on Main Street with nearby Skinny Slims still giving Main Street plenty of local flavor.

The renderings shown in this post will still require approval by the Bricktown Urban Design Committee, but at first glance, they appear to be more of a fit with the district than the current building.
