The Hamburg Inn Story

The Hamburg Inn opened in the mid-1930s under the ownership of Joe Panther on Iowa Avenue. Nicknamed “grease spots,” burgers sold for a nickel and there were 10 to a pound. Adrian Panther, Joe's brother, joined in the business and eventually bought the restaurant.

Our Happy Customers

  • 2 years later and happy to report Hamburg has upped their game. In the name of thoroughness and the unstoppable force that is my stomach, I decided to gently test the waters with 2 slices of Classic French Toast, the Eggs Florentine with hash browns, and a ChEgg Tortilla Wrap with sausage gravy. Polished breakfast off with a cup of coffee and an Apple Pie Shake. Just avoid the 9 AM and Noon church rushes on Saturdays and Sundays. You should be able to successfully navigate the crowds.
