Hamburger Man

The giant hamburger man is still in Auburn, NE. We also have a giant pig at the other end of town. Go to 29th and O Street and you will see him. Enjoy!

Hamburger Man - A&W Root Beer Character

While driving to Minnesota along Highway 75 through Nebraska I happened to look to my left and see this cute little Hamburger Man off to the side of a little small town cafe called Dairy Sweet. It was early so I made a mental note to be sure to stop and take a picture of it on my way back to Texas. He is not quite a story tall and has a mug of beer in one hand and a hamburger on a platter in the other.
