Good Sliders

This is a vintage slider joint. If you don't like onions, you may not like the little burgers that are all fried on onions. If you want a cheeseburger, bring some cheese slices with you. If you want some salty item to go with your burger, they have bags of chips. Wash it down with a canned soft... read more

The Cozy Inn Restaurant is one of the oldest if not the oldest establishment in Salina. The best time to visit it (if you do not care to take the odors of the restaurant home with you on your clothes) is when the weather is comfortable enough to order from the outside. The burgers are small but good. They are... More

Cozy Inn is a must when visiting Salina. Be prepared for the best little hamburger. Cozy hamburgers have a been a favorite for decades and even though we don't live in Salina any more, Cozy Inn is a stop that has to be done when visiting Salina. Just a caution - don't bring the hamburgers into your car because the... More

We were driving through Salina from Colorado to Arkansas during a winter storm. Dad wanted to "check out" the old downtown as usual. We checked trip advisor and saw this burger stop ranked #1. Well that was it..we pulled up just as Steve was opening. He invited us in and made us the freshest burger! He kept cooking until we... More

We ordered 6 burgers and they were great. Hit the spot. Were traveling to Denver. Checked out TripAdvisor for best restaurants. Decided to give number a try.

If you want a big, expensive fancy burger, this is not the place for you. If you want a greasy, delicious taste of America, look no further! Locals all suggested that we make sure to stop here while on a business trip to Salina. It did not disappoint. Be expected to get only what they have to offer. No cheese,... More

The first one I would say was pretty good. The second one and so on just playing greasy soggy and lacking in flavor. The wait wasn't that great either. And I know its historical but have a little bit bigger waiting area than a hallway.

This historical gem is all it's cracked up to be! Weather passing through or staying in Salina this is an adventure that you don't want to miss! The menu isn't extensive but the slider style hamburgers have a flavor that only history can provide! Caution the aroma will linger with you, so if you have to be in polite company... More
