Everyday Heroes

The dream of The Station Burger really began when Carl Medlin worked as a volunteer firefighter. He saw the sacrifices of time and safety first responders made to protect their community. Carl worked alongside those everyday heroes and his respect for them only continued to increase.

In 2010, he decided to launch a very different venture. What began as a dream amongst friends in their kitchen became reality when The Station Burger opened. We began with one goal in mind: to serve the highest quality food while honoring the men and women who help keep us safe every day.

The photos you see on our walls all tell a story. You’re seeing the true heroes of our communities displayed. As Carl says, “I’m not in the burger business, I’m in the people business.” The Station Burger is here to serve. We serve those who simply love burgers, moms who need a relaxing atmosphere to bring the kids and coworkers who are just looking to grab a quick bite to eat together.

It’s more than just making the best burger in Western Kentucky or Tennessee. It’s about providing a place for our local heroes to come relax, eat and decompress from a hard day on the job. It’s about showing our appreciation everyday for the work they do. We may not be able to do everything they deserve, but we believe they at least deserve a place to feel honored, while they’re re-charging for another day.

So, come and grab a great burger or ice cream and know that you’re eating among everyday heroes.

Yahoo Travel names The Station Burger as having one of the most over the top burgers in Kentucky. Here’s what they had to say, “The Station Burger Co. starts the craziness with the meat—they add bacon to the grind. Hmm… maybe that’s not so crazy. But the massive Station Chief Burger with a full pound of meat certainly is.”

Paducah Life’s feature said, “The Station Burger is a tasty twist on the American classic.”
