Tucker's Onion Burgers coming to Norman
Tucker's Onion Burgers plans to open its fourth metro restaurant in Norman's University Town Center at 24th Ave. NW and W. Robinson.
Oklahoma City-based A Good Egg Dining Group also plans to open two to three additional Tucker's locations in 2017, and could eventually look to expand to Tulsa, said Keith Paul, co-founder of A Good Egg.
Moore, South Oklahoma City, Edmond and Yukon would all be good candidates for a Tucker's, Paul said.
"There's several markets around the state where we think the Tucker's brand can be successful," Paul said.
Tucker's is A Good Egg's first fast-casual restaurant concept. The dining group has opened several successful full-service restaurants in Oklahoma City including Cheever's Cafe, The Drake; Red PrimeSteak; Republic Gastropub; Kitchen No. 324 and Iron Star Barbeque.
A Good Egg also plans to open a new Mexican restaurant called Barrio's at 1000 N Hudson in November, as well as a second Republic Gastropub location at the Chisholm Creek development at N. Western and W. Memorial at the end of October.
"It's going to be a busy fall for sure," Paul said. "The original Tucker's is going on five years and we think we’re finally comfortable that we can really start expanding it."
A Good Egg opened the first Tucker's at 324 NW 23rd St, in September 2011 and has since opened additional locations at the Classen Curve shopping Center and the Quail Springs area.
The 2,300 square foot Norman restaurant will seat about 75 inside and 20 on the patio.
