Beach Burgers (Camdenton, MO)
108 Cecil St (Ste B), Camdenton, MO 65020, T: 573-346-9955
I was in Camdenton for a wedding, and had several hours to kill between the ceremony and the dinner... Having had an early 'brunch' and a long wedding ceremony, I was starving. Good thing I came to Beach Burgers, a small hole in the wall with great ambitions. The owners got their inspiration for In & Out Burger while in California, and hope to make Beach Burger a franchise (a second restaurant will open in Springfield, MO soon).
Like other burger places these days, in part inspired by the tv program Man v. Food, Beach Burgers has a challenge: eat The Big Kahuna and get your pic on the wall (two Big Kahunas, bigger pic; three, a framed pic). Somewhat by accident I got into this challenge, ordering The Big Kahuna to ease my hunger: it includes four juicy and tasty beef patties (grilled and crispy around), fried (or raw) onion, a bit of lettuce and tomato, secret sauce (kind of mayo-1000 Island), on a big soft bun. As a side you get either fries (thin and crispy) or coleslaw. It costs ca. $10 (forgot). I finished The Big Kahuna within 10 minutes; it was so fresh and tasty! Consequently, Grondhopper is now on the wall of Beach Burgers!
Beach Burgers provides great burgers; fresh, juicy, tasty, and plentysome. Next time I will go for a smaller burger and have some of the other food too. Let's hope this will become a franchise!
