HAMBURGERS

We went there as I had been trying to eat at the top 10 Hamburger places from an article I had seen on the internet. Winstead's is a classic burger joint with 1950's decorations. I had the cheeseburger and actually it kinda looked plain but, WOW! It was one of the best burgers I've had. The... read more

I've been a life long fan of this place, however, the past few years haven't been kind. I didn't post until I felt sure about it because I really want to eat there. My thoughts; Improve the simple things. Throw away buns that have dried out, they're cheap compared to lost customers. Toss the lettuce/tomato/onions you wouldn't serve your mother.... More

I just checked into my hotel and went looking for some grub. I saw the sign and decided to give it a try. The place has an atmosphere from a different era soda fountain and all. I ordered a double steak burger with fries and a coke. I was shocked at how good the steak burger was, absolutely needs to... More

We stopped at the plaza location after a Starlight concert. It was packed at 11 pm on a Monday. It felt like a locally owned Streak and Shake, which isn't bad! We had burgers, fries, and shakes and all were good. I probably wouldn't stop by for a "regular" meal, but it worked great late in the evening and much... More

Basic burgers, fries, rings, shakes and a juke box. Friendly and quick service. Is it 2015 or 1955? Not much has changed - thank god.

Winsteads have a few locations around K.C., this one is located across the main intersection that enters the Plaza shopping district. The restaurant is filled with booths and lunch counter seating. Simple menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Known for steak burgers...which means a ground up piece of steak is fried into a hamburger. This is quality meat, it's thin... More

For fast food, it's outstanding. The burgers and the onion rings were really tasty. Cooked to order. Some nice options on the menu.

Every time we travel through KC, we try to eat at Winsteads. On the plaza and built in 1940, it's like going back in time. Good burgers, great onion rings, creamy shakes. One of our favorites in Kansas City.
