Burgers are back in Rutland

The Burger Baron has reopened for business

Burger Baron is back with a moto to bring the best burger to Kelowna.

Newly renovated with a taste from the 1960s, the burger joint has an array of sloppy burgers (which may take five napkins), milkshakes and fries. The food items are posted on an old-school sandwich board.

Burger Baron was closed for renovations but reopened Feb. 28 with a fresh a set of paint and a trove of old photos hanging on the walls.

Staff spent two days cleaning the ceiling, taking down the wooden planks, cleaning the nuts and bolts and put it back together.

“We really put our heart and soul into this,” said owner Karrin Morris, who moved to Kelowna with the intention of opening a restaurant.

Business has been steady since the reopening.

“We’re getting a lot of new customers,” said Morris, adding she has seen customers from all over the Okanagan.

The restaurant is currently making more than 100 milkshakes daily.

The owners took over the business in the fall, but before opening they had to complete the renovations of the inside. The next step will be the outside, said Morris.

“We’re going to try and keep it as original as possible on the outside but we have a few surprises that we’re doing,” she said.

A secret sauce goes into the burgers, said Morris. She recommends the popular mushroom burger or the bacon cheeseburger.

The shakes are made with real cream and come in a mix-and-match combination of flavours.

Typical hours are 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. with extended drive-through hours for the summer.

Morris is anticipating a busy weekend for May Days, with 16 employees on hand for the event.

“They’re all excited and hyped up,” said Morris.
