Square 1 Burgers – A New Twist

26 Sep

Once upon a time (1964) in Norman, Oklahoma, Bill Shumate opened his first restaurant, a burger joint called “Across the Street” (it was located across the street from the University of Oklahoma). Many years and restaurants later, he yearned to go back into the business he loved best: burgers. In 2006, he and his partner, Joanie Corneil, began developing a new concept for a burger restaurant and named it SQUARE 1 BURGERS in regard to Bill’s history. After researching “burgers” across the country, they decided that you, the customer, would enjoy “making your own masterpiece”. Starting with nine types of burgers, from sashimi tuna to buffalo to Meyer’s 100% Angus, “making your own masterpiece” is not only fun, it’s delicious with 3 types of buns, 25 toppings, 12 cheeses and 13 sauces.
