HIGHWAY PROJECT WILL SPELL THE END OF A 60-YEAR SE
Sad news in the newspaper -- was shocked to read this headline:
"HIGHWAY PROJECT WILL SPELL THE END OF A 60-YEAR SEDALIA, MO., TRADITION"
Sedalia, MO. February 3, 2007.
The last chance to enjoy a Sedalia specialty will be Labor Day of this year.
That's when the Wheel-Inn Drive-In will serve its last Guber Burger, a hamburger slathered with peanut butter.
The restaurant is closing because of a construction project that will expand the intersection of US Highway 50 and US Highway 65.
For almost 60 years, a stop at the Wheel-Inn for a Guber Burger has been a fixture of trips to the Ozarks for many Kansas and Missouri families.
In addition to losing this unique treat, the loss of the historic architecture of the drive-in itself will be incalculable.
