A hamburger t for a king is the best way to describe this hamburger joint, just a few miles outside the twin cities. While on a recent road trip, my wife and l came upon the town of Miesville, Minnesota, (population 132). It was lunchtime, and we just couldn’t resist the appeal of a restaurant that featured only hamburgers — 54 different kinds to be exact.  

Among the many choices was one named The Knight Burger. This simpli ed the decision making process, as the name alone set it apart from some of the more mundane sounding descriptive terms. All were palatable sounding names, so if it hadn’t been for the power of the name who knows what I might have ordered. However, one could not go wrong when ordering a hamburger at this place.

Joint doesn’t justifiably describe this restaurant, as the country ambiance and big, juicy, succulent burgers were reminiscent of a rich western culture of yesteryear.

The only thing that would have described the burger better would have been a more powerful name. Though my name sake was good, an even more descriptive name would have been The Knightro Powered Burger.

As a testament to the Knightro Report – a national syndicated livestock marketing column that is dedicated to the meat industry – it would be an honor to have this special burger featured on the menu.

The illustratively, appealing menu was the brain-child of Jerry Greentree, who has since turned the management of his business over to his daughter. After more than a quarter of a century, going through a ton of ground beef per month, it looks like it will stay in the family for generations to come.

If you’re in the area be sure to stop and treat yourself to one of life’s nest dining pleasures.

And when you place your order for one of their luscious burgers, please ask for the The Knightro Powered Burger.
