Real steakburgers

Casual dining in an Art Deco setting. The original Plaza location is much better than other locations. Steakburgers are the reason to go there.

Wonderful steak burgers. I didn't know what that was. So glad I was able to experience such a wonderful sandwich. The amaretto shake was incredible too. We arrived very late, about 9:30 and the waitress was beyond nice and helpful.

Fast service. Sue was very nice. The atmosphere is very 50's with music to match. Our burgers were very good. We ordered 1/2 & 1/2- fries and onion rings. They were ok

This is like a local diner without the blue plate specials. The food is good, but not anything great to write home about. It is more of a locally owned version of Steak and Shake. The building is the star here. It is Art Deco inside and out. The interiors could use a little freshening up, but it is easy... More

The night staff is not very accommodating. The waitress tried to seat my group up front in the crowded space near the door. We told her we didnt wanna be near the door (people constantly walking by, the draft from the door... just not a pleasent spot) and she walked right over to the table 4 feet across from it,... More

Art Deco gem located neat Country Club Plaza. The look inside and out makes you feel you were there at it's opening in 1940. The food is good too. I had a burger and a great butterscotch sundae. My wife had a burger with a cherry limeade (flavored with a scoop of lime sherbet). We split an order of 50-50,... More

My wife and I were staying at the Seville Best Western on Main and drove a few blocks south to Winsteads for dinner on a Thursday evening. It was a little later so it was not crowded and we got a nice booth. Our waitress was Brittany, and she was very perky and friendly. The burgers were delicious and so... More

Make sure and get the grilled onions on your burger. Not your typical fat boring burger - thin and a little crispy. Onion rings are superb. It's a diner so don't expect the Ritz but the burger is worth the trip.

This place opened in 1940 when I lived nearby on Rockhill Road. I live in New Hampshire now, but I get to KC from time to time and I always have at least one meal here. I ate lunch there last week and it was as good as ever. Very nostalgic. Had a single with all the extras, a salad... More
