It's truly good

Came here and ordered fries and a cheese burger. The order came as a bacon double cheeseburger. I didn't complain and enjoyed the delicious sandwich. The fries were pretty good also. A good place for a tasty snack. 1 dollar drinks and ice cream!

Love Runza burgers with cheese, and their fries are very good. Took a couple grandkids for lunch. They liked them also. They each got a free kids dessert also. The cashiers were very helpful and let them have shakes. Quick and hot to table.

Runza is a locally owned restaurant that is known for it's Runza Burger. I've stopped in many times for a quick lunch while shopping. The fast food is indeed quality. Much, much different than going to the McD places. Yuck! It is all about quality here. I love their fries! I shouldn't eat so many but they are soooooo good!

Runzas are fantastic. It is the closest thing to a bierock. Get it with cheese. I buy extras and freeze them. The hamburgers are good too. We wish they had a Runza in Topeka.

Arunza is like a bierrock. The cheese are the best. They have a good hamburger. I also had the fish. Quite nice! I wish they had Runza in Topeka.

I'm from Nebraska and I love Runzas. I was so happy to find the Lawrence location after moving to Kansas in 1996. The regular Runza (10/10) is perfect for me, especially when driving. The frings are the best, some fries (10/10) and some onion rings (10/10). The service is always friendly and fast.

Stopped for a quick lunch today, always consistently good food. The staff is attentive, cordial, helpful, and focused on customers. Clean eating area, always a great place for take out too.

Back in my days on the US Olympic Diarrhea Team, I'd suit up in my Pepto-Bismol pink uniform and head to Runza. Before my days as an excretory athlete, I preferred my sandwiches to be composed of solid food products, not suspended liquid holding itself together in a vague zeppelin shape. But the team demanded more of my alimentary canal,... More

I had a Runza burger deal with fries and a diet coke. The hamburger was cooked just the way I like it, well done, moist, and right off the grill and the fries were hot and not too salty. I met friends here after church and it is a quiet place to sit and visit. We finished off the meal... More

First time trying it. Wanted to find out if it was much different than a bierock. I got a runza with cheese, it was good, but then it is fast food (though interesting). It is about the same as a bierock, but these have a little too much breading, and not enough filling.
