The Return of the Guberburger

1 decade 2 years 2 weeks ago Tuesday, November 06 2007 Nov 6, 2007 Tuesday, November 06, 2007 2:41:03 PM CST November 06, 2007 in News

The Guberburger is a burger smothered with peanut butter.

The state closed down the one and only home of the Guberburger, Sedalia's Wheel Inn, in September to make room for a new highway. But last Thursday, the Guberburger got a new home.

Judy Clark started working at Wheel Inn when she was 13 years old. But she wasn't always as fond of it as she is now.

"I can remember when I was a little girl and gettin' mad and quittin' a lot when I'd get tired. But I was spoiled, so I'd get mad, quit and come home. And he'd come get me, and I'd come back," said Clark, who is the new owner. But she's glad she stayed.

"And when you've worked there that long, you get to know them all, and you feel like they're your family because I have been with them for so long," explained Clark.

Customers have traveled from all over the country to try the famous Sedalia Guberburger.

"This is just a big chunk of heaven on a bun. The Guberburger is a culinary delicacy indigenous to the state of Missouri. And in early September of 2007, I thought I'd lost this forever," explained Ted Luce, a customer. But it's not just the burger that keeps these customers coming.

"It was just kind of a hang out for all of us kids, you know, when we used to be young new drivers, and we would tour around town. We would swing around the Wheel Inn, stop and visit and get a Guberburger," said Gary Deuel, a customer.

When Wheel Inn shut its doors, Judy Clark knew she couldn't let a piece of history go.

"It's something I think that Sedalia has grown with. It's always been a part of Sedalia. And Wheel Inn has always been a part of Sedalia as long as I can remember," explained Clark.

The original Wheel Inn was at the intersections of Highways 50 and 65. The new Wheel Inn is just about a mile down 65.
