SAYING GOODBYE TO STUMPY

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Midamerica Referral Network

Shell Knob had another restaurant bite the dust this week.  Popular with summer Table Rock lake visitors, Stumpy Burger was known for it's excellent burgers.

 

These burgers reminded people of the old fashioned greasy grilled cheezeburgers of ages past.  That was when even the bun was grilled and crisp with grease.  A single cheezeburger was quite filling for most and it took a really huge appetite to do away with a double!

Stumpy


Sadly, it is difficult for merchants to survive and make a living with a town where the year round population in Shell Knob is  less than 1,500.  In a retirement, lake environment, the summer visitors are needed to provide the income.  In 2008, spring and summer was a disaster due to lake flooding and high gas prices.

 

Stumpy Burger is moving to Provo, Utah and will reestablish at the Shops At The River Woods.  Don and Sheri  will offer Ozark visitors a free meal until July 30, 2009.

 


Shell Knob is sorry to see them go.  We'll miss those burgers.

Unfortunately, some of the best food I have ever eaten came from small out of the way places that no longer operate or have moved to another location.  Sounds like it was good while it lasted!

It's sad when that happens.

These folks were only here about 18 months.  Unfortunately, their second summer season was a disaster due to flooding and gas hikes.  We also lost a small - but great - Italian restaurant this year.

Yes - sad.  I'd never had a complaint from clients when I took them there.

Say hello to my daughter in Aloha for me.

So sad to see restaurants close their doors. I wish they have used some consulting and work out a plan to stay.
