BEST BURGER IN TOWN!

If you want a fun atmosphere and delicious food, this is your place! The burgers are great, the truffle fries are amazing, and the alcoholic milkshakes are even better! It does get busy, so if you're planning to go during peak hours, expect a wait.

I've tried several meals here and I just think there are better places to get a burger, hot dog, chicken sandwich. Downtown is full of restaurants and this is not one of my favorites. The only advantage it has is that there is lots of seating space. If you have a large group, the upstairs will seat several people and... More

We live in Kansas City and make it point to eat here four or five times a year. I think I've tried all the burgers and they are all very good. Very well put together and each one is unique. I think the Kobe is the best but I also love The Fire (pretty darn hot). The fries are also... More

Here is where you go for burgers in Lawrence. Right on Mass Street. The meat is good, the fries are good and, important for me, the bread is right. They have other good stuff on the menu, but keep it simple and have a burger. After all, what is the name of the place?

Burger Stand is one of our favorite places to visit in Lawrence. Their burgers are great, my favorite is the Fire Burger (prepare to have something to drink) They also have a wide variety of fry choices to choose from and a huge condiment bar. This restaurant is 3 stories, so can accommodate a lot people. If you are visiting... More

This place has a nice choice of burgers and different fries with a load of interesting sauces to choose from. We took 5 college boys and the 2 of us to dinner for under $100, and everyone came away full and content. We've been here at least 4 or 5 times in the past year, and I have always enjoyed... More

Stopped in for lunch with my Buddy from Lawrence . We saw a big line and thought about leaving but glad we stayed. A cool employee said they take orders downstairs so we headed down there. Got our order in right away. Then grabbed a beverage and headed to the patio to people watch. I got to see crazy George.... More

Finally had dinner at The Burger Stand and it was as good as everyone had told me. I really appreciated that the hamburgers were cooked to my specification since I don't like them overdone. We had cheese and bacon fries and onion rings for appetizers; both were really good. I had sweet potato fries with my dinner which were also... More

The service was a bit slow...and there is always a line...but the food and neat atmosphere make up for the wait! The burgers are delicious and satisfy any craving for the American favorite. Plus, you must try to the duck fat fries. They are heaven in a basket.
