Great tradition, no doubt--pervasive indigestion guaranteed--yet...habit forming...fascinating...loaded with all the good stuff--flavor, cholesterol, fat...etc. Yes...good...good...good..

My family and I grew up in the burg but left in 1986 we are very fortunate and make visits atleast three to four times per year to visit family but mainly to get a sub from Subby's (I worked there when it was Super Subway and out by the Dayton Mall) we go to Esther Price Candy Store, I don't know about Cassano's where they used to be is closed down, we stop by and grab a sack of little hamburgers and yes before we leave for the day we go close out the evening with Ron's, we eat a pizza there and get one to go and a mushroom steak sandwich. We recently visited and there was a car show going on in downtown we had to wait quite a while to get a table but well worth the wait
I noticed your isp is London, KY. Do you live there? I'm from the Burg, too, and live in London.

Does anyone know who the owner was in the late 60's, early 70's? I did a painting of the wagon, and would love to find out where it is today. I either gave it to him or sold it(for next to nothing)to him.
Also, what kind of pickles did they use, they were good! I think there was sausage mixed with hamburger, and those thick white onions, and those pickles, a dill that was sliced long ways...mmmmmmmm, and all that salt and pepper.
I want one right now!

The pickles are whole and removed from the jar. The skin is peeled with a potatoe peeler, then the pickles are placed back in the large jar. They are Dill. The burger; It's 1 tblspn beef, 1 teaspn of flour. Make the patty while you have lard on your hands. Place flattened patty in skillet with 1/4" melted lard over med/high heat. The onions are small vidallia onions, nothing special. The buns are smaller, cheapest kroger/wonder buns you can buy. Add salt and pepper to pickle onion combination on the bun, not the burger.
Try it and the smell alone will prove it!

So it's not sausage, but lard. I thought it tasted like a bit of sausage, hmmmmmmmmmmm. You sound like you know what you're talking about, how? Do you know the original owner? thanks!

My parents took me to the hamburger wagon as a kid all the time. When I started driving I could not pass it without stopping for a few. I left the area in the early 80s. I was just back there the other day and took my 21 year old son to check them out. They still taste the same great way and my son could not get enough. Wish I lived closer. The cost now is $1.10. I think they were a quarter when I was in high school.

i've been away from the burg for 15 years now but i still crave the hamburger wagon on a daily basis! does anyone have any idea how they do it? i've tried frying small beef patties in oil, but its missing something. anyone have any ideas? p.s. if you move away, expect to miss the hambuger wagon, cassano's, ron's, subby's, and marion's. before moving, i suggest you get your fill of them all because it is definately unique to that area.

They were first made during/after the 1913 flood. Food was running low, espaecially meat. Corky mixed hamburger/sausage with mashed potato to stretch the meat into more portions.

I don't care what's in 'em. just had a sack of them today and they were AAAAAWWWEEEESSSOOOMMMEEEE!!!!! They have a poster down on their building that says they were ranked in the top 100 burgers in the United States in a book called Hamburger America. That book sure knows what it's talkin' about. Love those little burgers!!!!! Oh, by the way, they were $1.10 each.
