Have you ever had a Zip Burger? They still make them just like they used to, so we ordered a tray of them. (However, as the aroma from the nearby dumpsters drifted our way, we requested a spot on the other side of the building. Our car hop gladly obliged!) Anyway...the Zip Burgers are similar to a sloppy joe, minus the tomato sauce. It is cooked up hamburger seasoned with secret ingredients, served with mustard & dill pickles. Mmmmm...just like we remembered! I probably could have eaten several, but settled for just one. Besides, I had a frosty mug of root beer to slug down!
Me & my zip burger
I remember as a child we would get a free "kiddie mug"...
a very small mug of rootbeer, which made us feel pretty special.And after looking through several websites, I discovered that Mugs Up makes their own root beer, on the premises, fresh every day. No wonder it tastes so good!
So if you are ever in Columbia, Missouri, be sure to hunt this little place up! I won't say it was the highlight of our day, as we had many exciting happenings that weekend, but it was one of those moments we won't soon forget.
