Linda-Mar is a tiny concrete box, painted bright yellow and red. There’s room for about ten people in the tiny dining area; any more than that and you’re just going to have to literally be touching other people. And there’s a TV in one corner of the room that plays Andy Griffith episodes from opening to closing. Their signature dish is the Westside; the restaurant is located way on the west side of Tulsa. The Westside is a double meat-double cheese burger on thick slabs of Texas Toast instead of the more traditional hamburger buns. It . . . isn’t very good really. It’s very greasy, the vegetables were soggy and the meat wasn’t flavorful at all. The Texas Toast is a welcome change-up from the usual hamburger formula; it was crisp and buttery. But on the whole, I kind of wouldn’t recommend this at all. It’s a shame, because the bustling, loud, packed environment is a kind of cultural experience by itself. But maybe it’s the experience that keeps people coming back; it certainly doesn’t seem to be the food. Recommended against. 1 ½ stars.
Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route. Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue à ne jamais dépasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable répétition d'une représentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.
