“We’ll put sunshine in your smile and spring in your heart!” – Betty von Rutenberg
The start of von Rutenberg Ventures goes back to 1961 when Bill and Betty von Rutenberg struck out on their own and purchased the Nibble Nook. This tiny eight stool hamburger spot (on East Washington Avenue just off the square) soon became a hot spot for great burgers, fries and shakes. Many customers today still mention how they loved those Nibble Nook burgers.

Starting in November, kids eat FREE every Thursday evening. Kids must order from the kids menu, and there can only be 2 kids per adult! We appreciate all the business we receive not only from the adults but your kids as well. We know that the key to happy parents is happy kids, and we are hoping this will get you one step closer to that happiness. Deal good through end of March.
