Three years ago, I finally found myself at the Kewpee Hamburgers location in Downtown Lima, Ohio. It was an out-of-body experience for me.
It had been a long wait, but I was finally able to visit and eat at one of their restaurants. When the time to figure out where I’d be signing copies of my book All About the Burger, I knew that a stop at Kewpee in Lima was mandatory.
I wouldn’t take no for an answer. Lucky for me, they said yes. I got to enjoy another one of those delectable Double Cheeseburgers (with onions, pickles & mustard) and one of their frosted malts.
I also signed a bunch of books, hung out & talked about Kewpee history with Scott Shutt, VP of Kewpee Hamburgers, and was on a local TV station that covered the event. It was an awesome day if you ask me, and true to their catchphrase, my heart went flippity-flop.
Thank you to Scott Schutt and everyone at Kewpee Hamburgers for treating my wife and me like kings.
Here are pictures of my Kewpee collection that were on display at the now-closed Burger Museum.
