40 years of Mister K’s

Went to Mister K’s for lunch yesterday. That’s the old-school burger joint on South Boulevard across from Southend Brewery. Despite the fact that it’s three blocks from the office, I hadn’t been to Mister K’s in years. You know, trying to eat healthier and all that. But yesterday, I was craving a burger, so I made the short trip. Had a good burger with fresh lettuce and tomatoes. Satisfied my craving. On the way out, I noticed a sign on the door. Mister K’s is celebrating its 40th anniversary on Saturday, August 11. Forty-cent burgers all day. South End has changed a bit since Mister K’s first opened (in fact, developers hadn’t even coined the term “South End”)–urban condos now rise behind the restaurant and next door a brand-new Chipotle burrito joint had a line out the door–but Mister K’s keeps doing it right. I won’t wait years before I go back. —R.T.
