Burger Time in Detroit Lakes has flipped its last burger -- for now.

After 22 years in the city, the burger joint has closed its windows.


The owner of Burger Time, Gary Copperud, a Colorado businessman, sold the land to the city back in October for $560,000

The plan was originally for Burger Time to then lease the building back from the city until spring so that it could continue operating.
