Guberburger at The Wheel Inn puts Peanut Butter on a Hamburger

This is the reaction many people have to the famed Guberburger served at The Wheel Inn in Sedalia, Missouri: EW! Why? What is a Guberburger that makes it sound so…well…gross? Well, the Wheel Inn restaurant puts peanut butter on a hamburger…and it actually tastes way better than it sounds.

The burger at Wheel Inn Sedalia, the Guberburger, is a beef patty on a white bun topped with lettuce, tomato, mayo…and…peanut butter. I stopped for a meal on a Missouri road trip and I have to admit I thought, “ew” myself when I read the list of ingredients, but not for the peanut butter, I was fine with that…but for the lettuce, as I adamantly hate lettuce and weirdly don’t like the texture it brings to the soft bite of a burger. So I was somehow fine with a hamburger with peanut butter but not a hamburger with lettuce. I never said I was normal.

Anyways, I felt I should get my guber burger as they thought it should be served so I ordered one with peanut butter and lettuce and all…and it was a pretty darned delicious burger!

Since the 1940s The Wheel Inn has been known for their Missouri peanut butter hamburger and have been pumping out the burgers daily. Unfortunately they were forced to close their doors in 2007 due to a highway expansion project that threatened their building off Highway 50 and 65. Luckily for everyone a former employee, Judy Clark, reopened the restaurant with her husband Don in a new location (2103 S Limit Ave), and the guberburger lived on for more years to come!

Sadly, in 2013, citing health reasons, the Wheel Inn Missouri closed once again.
