WORLD FAMOUS SLIDERS!

You have NEVER experienced anything like the Cozy Inn. I remember going there over 50 years ago and getting a sack full and an ice cold Dr. Pepper! Order a dozen! You'll dig'em.

I won't say that these are the best burgers, but this is a vintage heartland experience you shouldn't miss. We were there on a beautiful day, so we sat outside as recommended by previous reviewers - the "aroma" pretty much permeates the entire block. They do one thing, sliders, and they do it their way. Just chips and sodas to... More

For over 90 years the Cozy Inn has been serving some of the best sliders in the country. Salina's answer to White Castle, they do that chain 2 stars better. Worth a stop even if you're just passing through.

It has been years since we ate here and passing through Salina we just had to make one more stop. The place is literally a "greasy spoon" that has been in downtown Salina for a greta many years and serves only hamburger sliders like those severed by White Castle. A small piece of ground beef covered with onions and topped... More

Really great sliders. They have had the same recipe for their sliders for over 90 years. The service is quick and friendly. These little burgers are really addictive so I can agree with their logo "buy them by the sack full!"

We saw the billboards and read reviews so we decided to try them. We walked in and had no idea what to expect. The staff was great and basically said, pull up a spot, we will take care of you and settle up at the end. They were awesome and the burgers were even better! We were so glad we... More

I've eaten at many a locally owned place that served up excellent hamburgers, but this place just made my top ten in my 50 years of loving food. The Cozy Inn is an original hamburger stand that has been in continuous operation for 93 years. That's not a typo! Same grill, same location, same bar stools, same counter. It's like... More

I've grown up eating these, and they don't mind putting extra onions on them for me! No joke, just the best two-bite burgers you'll ever wrap one hand around. You'll see why the founder of White Castle took the slider idea back east and made a fortune.

My husband, sister-in-law and I were traveling home and decided to go to The Cozy Inn because it was the last of the 8 wonders of KS food that we had to visit. It was well worth the visit. These sliders were the precursor of White Castle but they are sooooo much better than White Castle. Little burgers are cooked... More
