Midway Oh Boy is a family restaurant located in Elyria, Ohio. Its famous double-decker Oh Boy burgers are an over 55 year-old tradition in Elyria and the western suburbs of Cleveland. Featuring a mayo-based special sauce similar in taste to Big Boy, an Oh Boy sandwich is one of the best burgers in the United States.
Double-decker Burgers with Special Sauce at Midway Oh Boy
In addition to their famous double-decker burgers, Midway Oh Boy features a full menu typical of any family restaurant. Despite that variety, it’s obvious the Oh Boy and its special sauce are the stars of this establishment.
Any sandwich can be ordered as a “special plate” which includes french fries and a salad. The salad is merely some shredded iceberg served with a pickle and a dollop of special sauce. The mayo-based special sauce is similar to Frisch’s Big Boy but not quite as tangy.
The beef in the Oh Boy sandwich is top rank, easily topping a typical fast food restaurant in quality. The french fries on the other hand are more nondescript. Midway Oh Boy offers a whole host of side items as alternatives to their french fries.
