Hi Hamburger Harry! Love your website! Found it while preparing to head out tomorrow to the Hamburger Museum in Seymour, Wisconsin, where they’ve got “the world’s largest hamburger collection” (more than 1,500 items):
Seymour’s quite proud of their hamburger history.
Is your HamburgerHarley from Milwaukee? That thing’s awesome! I bought a vintage U-Haul fiberglass camper this summer that I’m jazzing up. You may have inspired me to paint it to resemble a hamburger!
My website’s on Wisconsin’s historical markers, but I’ve got a few posts on burger drive-ins.
Wisconsin is the home of Culver’s — their claim to fame is their “Butter Burger”.
I’m from Southern California — grew up on Bob’s Big Boy (60’s and 70’s), then In ‘N Out. So, I have a picky hamburger palate.
Here in Wisconsin, they have a whole another hamburger culture. There’s brat burgers, there’s burgers with four kinds of meat, there’s burgers with fried eggs (and they call this a “California” burger!!! — where’d they get that???). Best burgers, though, are at the little drive-in places, most around since the 50’s/60’s, some longer. Like Charlie’s, you drive in and a car hop takes your order. Some of the girls are on roller skates. The burger are just about always sooooooo good!
I just discovered there’s a Bob’s Big Boy north of here, about three hours. It’s been about 15 years since I’ve had a Bob’s Big Boy burger. I’m planning to visit after the snow’s melted in the spring.
Mickey=Lu B-B-Q in Marinette, WI, is so famous and so busy he doesn’t even have/need a web presence.
Well, if you’re interested in hamburger input from Wisconsin, let me know. I think it would be fun to collaborate! Oh, I’m in De Pere, next to Green Bay (where that famous football team’s from).
All the best,
