Kato Burger Pit opens and joins the trio of localized Mankato food spots

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — Kato Burger Pit has opened its doors.

The new burger and shake spot is located on the corner of Monks Avenue and Stadium Road, where Massad’s once stood.

Kato Burger Pit joins the owner's existing Kato Pizzeria and India Palace food locations.

“We want people to know that we are local. We live here, we love it here, we love the people here. You know, I lived up in the cities for about 8 years and I have lived here for five and I absolutely love Mankato. So, it’s just you know, trying to give the people what they want,” Owner Amarpal Mand said.

The owners intend to grow the menu and eventually utilize the drive-thru.

Store hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 12 to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
