Gooberburger

Friday evening I passed through Sedalia, MO for the first time in about 8 years. I couldn't resist stopping at the Wheel Inn Drive-in to have a gooberburger.

The Wheel Inn has been open since 1947 and is one of three old drive-ins in Sedalia.

The gooberburger is a hamburger with warm peanut butter plus lettuce, tomato and salad dressing. It's pretty good - I wouldn't have minded if there had been a bit more peanut butter on the sandwich. The curly cue fries were also good, though the chocolate shake was only so-so.

    I thought I had read elsewhere that the Wheel Inn had closed down recently. Needless to say, I am pleased to hear that it is still in business. I have always wanted to stop in and try a gooberburger. Now, I still have a chance!

    For some reason, I have a hard time trying to imagine what peanut butter adds to burger. I am sure if you look long enough, you will find something to please everyone.

    The highway project is in 2008. It is uncertain if they will stay open then.

    BTW: They have limited winter hours, closing at 4PM every day but Friday, when they are open until 8PM?

    Thanks for the update! It sounds like if I want to make sure I eat there, I better do it this year.

    The Wheel Inn used to have a decent breaded pork tenderloin.

    Hey Paul

    A very very thin layer of peanut butter on a turkey sandwich or many other meat sandwichs adds flavor to the mix but heavy p b will over run the taste of the main item .
