I just watched a segment of CBS Sunday Morning with
Charles Osgood. They went to the decidedly small,
rural "town" of Moonshine, Illinois to profile the
Moon Burger. Made by one of the 2 official residents
of the town (actually a grocery), they are apparently
quite the tradition. They showed people coming in and
ordering 15 burgers at a time. You can get hamburgers
and/or cheeseburgers. You add your own mustard and ketchup.
The stove is only hot until 12:30 P.M. and then the
cook locks up-no exceptions.
The grocery is a real gathering place and the social
aspect is as important as the cuisine.
