Shawnee, Oklahoma USA is OPEN!
July 29, 2020
From July 27 - September 30, the City of Shawnee has implemented a mask ordinance. Masks are required when one is indoors in a public location. This would include concerts and stores. Masks are not required while you are eating - they are required while you wait. Masks are not required for outdoor activities like the Splash Park. Spectators at an indoor sporting event would require a mask, participants are not required to mask. The outdoor flea markets would be exempt from masks, unless required by the organizers. Masks are not required for people that are medically unable to wear masks or children under age 11. Many properties, such as tribal casinos or those outside of the City limits, previously implemented mask requirements. Click HERE for full text.

  • Pack your mask. Keep a mask handy in your purse or back-pocket.
  • When in doubt, wear your mask.
  • Keep an eye out for signage with further instructions.
  • You may experience modified hours of operation or reservations required.
  • If you have specific questions or concerns, contact the entity you are visiting directly by clicking the link to their website and contact information.

SHAWNEE, OK, USA - Did you know?

Historic Hamburger King -
Famous for Hamburgers since 1927!

Another Shawnee classic restaurant can be found at the corner of Main and Oklahoma, Hamburger King has been selling burgers since 1927! Decades before McDonald's or Burger King, Hamburger King was one of the country's first hamburger restaurant chains.

Hamburger King was visited by celebrities like Bob Wills and Jack and Al Hoxie, along with Hoxie's best horse Scout.

The original "King" was opened in Bristow, OK by George Macsas. His brother Joseph Macsas opened the Shawnee Hamburger King. Additional restaurants were opened in Ada, OK and Ruidoso, NM. The Shawnee restaurant passed to Joseph's son and daughter, is now run by the third generation, and the fourth generation can be seen working in the restaurant. The Shawnee location is the only Hamburger King still in operation.

Some say Hamburger King is a time capsule. Old time photos can be found, the layout hasn't changed much, and you still call in your order from the phone at your booth.

While it may look like it always has, the King has just undergone improvements to keep the restaurant clean and safe for the next ninety-three years.

Please wait to be seated and social distance as you wait!
