Alas, Sioux Sundries is no more. Mrs. Wassaberger was in a nursing home, and had someone running the store. After Mrs. Wassaberger passed away the store was only open a short time. We have been there and just stared at the Coffey Burger, didn’t order it, couldn’t even attempt to eat it!

I’m sorry, the eleven pound burger has been retired, and a 15 lb burger is now in it’s place!!
Definitely El Cap or Biff Burger–both on the St Pete side of the bay. [:D][:D]

How about the biggest juiciest burger in Tampa? And a place that will cook mine MR!!!!
11 pounds!No one could possibly eat that in one sitting and live.
The only hamburger I eat on a regular basis, aside from an occasional turkey burger, is the .5 lb ostrich burger at Fuddruckers. I think it’s quite good. You see, I want to save my calories for Hot Dogs.
I’ll speak out for Stamp’s as well. Out of the two locations, the best is located near Jackson State University. The burgers are out of this world.
Give me some info on the CF Cody’s. Is it close to Paul Mueller Co.? I visit Springfield twice a year for PM Co.
Biggest, and best looking, hamburger I have ever seen is at a very little restaurant/ma & pa kind of place, called The Fish House in Mulberry, FL. I mean these are the best looking burgers. The people there said they were relatively unknown until they won best burger contest and now they are fairly well known at least regionally.
Sioux Sundries has a burger on the menu that tops the Coffee, it’s called the Mountain Man Burger. 4 lbs of 85/15 ground 100% Angus Beef. Also this last summer in Crawford, NE Sioux Sundries cooked up a 30lb. burger that used a huge round loaf of bread for bun. The burger was said to have been valued a little above a value meal at $150 to prepare, about $5 a pound not bad. It is rumored mind you just rumored right now but what do you guys and gals think of the idea of having a Sioux Sundries with the original menu available at every Cabela’s Attraction Store location?
Route 20, in and of itself, is a marvel to me. To think this was one of the first 2 cross continental roads constructed in the United States, and when you drive in this area of Nebraska, and Wyoming, to think about the likely loss of life by construction workers. I do believe Charles Kuralt deemed this drive, through Sioux County Nebraska, and the adjoining Sandhills to be one of the 10 most scenic in the country. To be able to enjoy a stop at Sioux that day, and eat there was one of the true pleasures in my life. One more point: driving on Rt 20, a one lane road, at 95 mph, comfortably, I might add! Lucky to see one passing car every 5 minutes on this stretch of road, and the ability to spot that oncoming car several minutes in advance of actually meeting it. That is how spread out the land is in Northwest Nebraska. As a life long New Jerseyan, I can not think of 2 extremes so stark in terms of land/lifestyle than the northeast corridor and the aforementioned Sandhills.
And it is definitely worth the ride if you cross into Wyoming and tour around Guernsey State Park to look at the grand 1930’s work by the CCC and WPA programs, and into South Dakota to tour through Custer State Park from the Nebraska line to Rapid City. These are still relatively "undiscovered" areas that should be listed among the most scenic in the U.S.
If this string doesn’t evolve to a similar and subsequent discussion of recommended cardiologists, there is no God…[;)]
I saw something a while back on the Food Network about a "sizable" burger served in San Antonio. But I can’t remember the name of the restaurant. Does anyone know of such a place?
