I went here with my family a lot as a kid innthe 1950's and 1960's and then moved. I was in Kansas City with my son for a volleyball tournament and we had time to drive around the city. He was impressed with the steak burger and frosty. It was as good as I remembered it!

We always stop here whenever we are in Kansas City. The food is amazing and we are always treated very well. The skyscraper milkshakes are incredible!

Went in for a snack while we were waiting for our holiday lights tour to begin. Just had a few appetizers but the onion rings were delicious and the atmosphere reminded me of when I was a kid. I could have just stayed in there all night checking out all the menu items enjoying the old school charm of the... More

Met a bunch of friends before touring the Plaza lights. We all ordered burgers or grilled chicken. Nobody was crazy about the main dishes they received. The meat was so thin that most wished they would have gotten a double decker just to have a decent amount of meat. The bread was all anyone could taste. On the up-side, everyone... More

This is my idea of comfort food. Great burgers, fries, onion rings, shakes, ice cream..... Servers are extraordinary. Never had bad service and have been going there for decades. Just a fun place with very good food.

My husband is still raving about the cheeseburger here. I thought mine was good, but not as good as some others I have had. The strawberry ice cream soda was delicious, though.

Iconic steak burgers. If you want a good old fashion hamburger and a malt this is the spot. Drive through is always busy because it's so good. It a KC classic for a reason. Best malts !!! Go inside and listen to the juke box while you eat. Pretty cool spot !

This was a great lunch spot during our tour of Ward parkway and the Plaza. Amber was quick and the sandwiches were delicious. Hit the spot. Parking was a challenge, but it was lunch time.
