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.

I can't believe this place has been around longer than me and I'm 70! My parents and I lived in Kansas City when Inwas a small child. This was a favorite place of our family then and still is mine. Recently we brought family and friends here after attending an event nearby. The place is always a treat. Everybody makes... More

Good burgers. Smaller than you would think, so order a double or triple. Exterior shows history and interior isn't quite as special. One free refill on drinks: I'm not a big fan of that. Burgers aren't juicy and greasy, but that's what you get from a steak burger. Good place that we recommend.

Winstead's Plaza district location was just awesome, a 50s style diner with table service, and such great food! The milkshakes were a highlight, we loved them and so did our children! The staff was so friendly, and our waiter advised us about other fun places to go, and helped us plan out a few fun activities in K C to... More

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
