Topeka – The Burger Stand
A Yelp search for top restaurants in Topeka, Kan., will bring up a place called The Burger Stand. This name sound familiar to foodies, because there has been a very popular location of the same name in Lawrence, Kan., at the Casbah for several years. The Topeka location is located at 1601 SW Lane St., in the historic College Hill neighborhood near Washburn University.
Being curious as to if one of the top rated Topeka eateries would have any pork on their menu, naturally, I checked the place out! As expected, The Burger Stand offers a bacon cheeseburger, but deliciously unexpected, they also offer bourbon bacon cheddar cheese fries! Available in either a side or a basket, they make a bacon cheeseburger meal even better.
According to their website, “The Topeka location features outdoor patio seating, seating for over 150 and two fully stocked bars – one of which is in the back dining area referred to as ‘The Pong Bar.’ The Pong Bar offers Ping Pong Tables, Pool Tables, Foosball Table, a pinball machine and digital bar gaming.”
The Burger Stand is fun and the food is good. Check it out yourself the next time you’re in the capital city. Bring a big appetite and add an order of bourbon bacon cheddar cheese fries.
