We were very fortunate to walk into Bud’s and directly get a table for six. The place is always busy and for good reason. Its reputation as a gathering place and burger joint goes back a long time. Their formula works: hamburger or cheeseburger, single or double. That’s it. CASH ONLY and “NO FRIES, DAMMIT!” For sides it’s Lay’s chips or… nothing. Add pickles and onions, or not. Ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper or Tabasco (in multiple flavors). Very simple and done well.
Large selections of beer and liquor, quick service, and affordable prices make for a fun destination. Looking forward to another Bud’s burger the next time we are in Sedalia.
