Burger Junkie celebrated its newly opened business Oct. 10 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, during which the Arkansas City Area Chamber of Commerce presented owner Christopher Goodman with a certificate of best wishes and a chamber membership certificate.
Several local member businesses attended the ribbon-cutting at the completely remodeled eatery, located at 611 W. Madison Ave., which opened June 12.
Goodman, the sole owner-operator, is a U.S. military veteran who serves fresh, never-frozen beef burgers and hand-cut French fries daily. Burger Junkie does not have any freezers or microwaves and the onions are grilled on a cast-iron grill.
The inside of Burger Junkie is a hip setting with a ’50s-style atmosphere, which includes a Wurlitzer jukebox.
“Apparently, casino-goers are coming through Ark City on U.S. 166 to grab some fresh burgers and fries on their way to Native Lights and 7 Clans (casinos),” said Chamber President and CEO Kammy Downs. “However, Burger Junkie is providing a fresh food option for Ark City citizens, too.”
Hours of operation are from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, as well as from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays. Burger Junkie is closed Sundays and Mondays.
