Goodbye Stadarskali-Home of the Hamburger

Goodbye to our good friend Stadarskali. It has been operating as a truck stop and gas station since 1960. They were the first restaurant/diner in Iceland to offer hamburgers. Today, as of September 15th, they are being bought by Esso (which is called N-1 in Icleand) whose plans are to have a standard, sterile and impersonal bus stop/gas station. the Grapevine Magazine will be publishing an article honoring their 48ish years . Slowly N-1/Esso is taking over all of the very personable and family run bus stops here in Iceland to replace them with their ugly, sterile, fast food gas station alternatives.

  1. I am quite sad about this. I had a bacon cheeseburger for lunch today at AJ’s in West Warwick, Rhode Island. It was good and the burger was star shaped.
