Been to Uncle Ernie’s in Bourbon yet? Known as the “home of the famous big Ernie burger,” this quaint, laid-back piece of culinary real estate is an enjoyment to the gastronomic senses. Recently stopped by there on a beautiful Ozark snowy day and was greeted by a unique décor boasting creative use of old utility spools that make up the tables of various heights as well as an unusual clock. Corrugated metal finishes everything off to create a warm, cozy affect. The restaurant, offering a varied menu, also has excellent
service. Meal portions were extraordinary. Located just a stone’s throw off of I-44 on Old Route 66 in downtown Bourbon, this is a stop you won’t want to miss. When you visit, be sure and tell owner Brian Hartung that the Meramec Traveler sent you!
