Locals Eat: Wicked Hangry
Wicked Hangry. The name alone makes you laugh because you know you’ve been there–that moment when you were so hungry that your attitude got more out-of-control than your appetite. When you’re that hungry, there’s nothing better than food made exactly how you want it, on the spot. At Wicked Hangry Handcrafted Burgers, owners Heather Brehm and fiance���� Adam Rogers embrace that concept with a menu of burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese and wraps, built to your taste with made-from-scratch sauces and unlimited fresh toppings.
With eight children between the two of them and backgrounds in the oil field and energy management, Heather and Adam are no strangers to the needs of busy families. As Edmond locals, they’ve shared their passion for kicked-up comfort food since 2015, “starting with nothing but a food truck and a prayer,” Heather recalls. Earlier this year, when looking to buy some equipment from the former restaurant at 33rd and Boulevard, they ended up taking the space itself instead. Now opened for three months, they can connect with their ‘fellow hangries’ on a new level, and share their love of community through food. Their unique brand of fun and personality shows in everything from their crafty menu item names and cheery decor, to their spacious bar and plans for Live PD watch parties.
A straightforward menu allows you to select your entree and choose your own toppings. One of the most popular selections is the signature Wicked topping combo which includes cheddar cheese, bacon, avocado, fried onion strings and Wicked Sauce–a slightly smoky, tangy chipotle aioli that’s so good you could eat it with a spoon. It’s especially tasty as a dipping sauce with their fried cauliflower or fried pickles. “We make our own sauces and batters, and use a clear, gluten-free frying oil so everything is light,” Heather says. “We hand mix our hamburger meat several times each day with our own special seasoning blend and shop for and prepare our own veggies each morning too,” she adds.
Other unique topping combos ready to be piled on burgers, sliders, wraps, fries, grilled cheese or black bean patties are the Screamer with grilled jalapenos and habaneros, cheddar cheese and Wicked Sauce; the Pickynic with french onion dip, ruffles and house fried pickles or the LannaLouWow with grilled canadian bacon and pineapple plus mango salsa. There is a combo for every food mood you have.
Even Keto, low-carb, gluten-free and vegan diners will find something to satisfy on Wicked Hangry’s menu, with options like avocado slices, boiled eggs, black bean patties and salads. So don’t get hangry, get happy!
