Great and very reasonable Gourmet burgers with all the fixings and extra sauces. Kobe burger rocked my world. My so. Is the self-proclaimed burger "sewer" (as opposed to connoiseur) and ranked it second only to Johnny's North Lawrence.

Fun and great tasting burger joint in the heart of Lawrence. Taste testing all the different sauces made the meal even better. Highly recommend!

After walking around the campus we made our way to Mass street in search of a good meal before heading back north to home. We both had the classic, I added avocado to mine, Cajun fries and truffle fries, daughter did the corn dog and regular fries. All the sauces were good and burgers cooked just right. It was a...

Was visiting my KU daughter and she said we had to go to The Burger Stand. Got there at about 7pm. You have to wait in line to order and then you have to wait a long time for the food. No where to sit and wait very closed small enclosed space. We got our food about 8pm by the... More

The burger stand at the Casbah offers phenomenal burgers. The chefs are extremely accommodating with the way you like your meat cooked (they do extra rare which is definitely a plus). The Smoke in particular is a hit to my taste with a perfect smoky bacon flavor and a meat pate so juicy that is is almost impossible to eat... More

In Lawrence to catch a show and stopped at the Burger Stand for dinner. I ordered my burger medium rare and it was very rare but it was very good. Ordered the sweet potato fries, they had sweet seasoning that was tasty. The condiment bar had tasty sauces and the food service was very fast. Nothing too exceptional but it... More

The wife and I dined at the Burger Stand and had a so-so experience. First, the staff informed us the line was much shorter downstairs and we could get our order in earlier. She was absolutely right. I ordered the Smoke burger and "she who must be obeyed" ordered the Classic. My Smoke burger was absolutely inundated with the chipotle-cocoa... More

Fortunately, we went early on a Friday night, because by 6pm, this place is slammed. And for good reason. In addition to being very near the KU campus, this restaurant combines a fun atmosphere, very good burgers (and a few other sandwich selections, including hot dogs and a number of vegetarian options) and the best beer menu we've found in...
