Expensive white castle?

Heard the hype, was driving part of Rte 66, and decided to get a late lunch. Nothing special...it's a fast food joint except food takes a while to cook. Burgers hot dogs shakes and various fried veggies are available. Kitchy place that hypes Rte 66.

Decided I really wanted to see Oklahoma, and take another state off my bucket list. Picked Miami Oklahoma, and picked KuKu for dinner after reading the reviews. A piece of cardboard is thicker than the hamburger patties we had, and it tasted like old meat. I couldn't even eat this small McDonald size burger, as the taste was terrible. It... More

Who doesn't get their kicks on Route 66? The Good Wife and I took a short trip along Rt. 66 from Galena Kansas to Miami Oklahoma. Passing Waylans KuKu, we decided to turn around and give it a try. The place was packed at 2 in the afternoon on a Saturday. Neat looking 1965 Ford Fairlane parked in front. The... More

A friend and I had lunch at Ku-Ku's when we were told that it is a "must do" Route 66 classic. So, we did and now we have and I doubt that we go back. We were there during the lunch rush on a Saturday. The place was crowded and service at the counter didn't seem to keep up with... More

Get a double cheeseburger -- It is the best!! Great place on route 66. I have eaten here since I was a child and it is the best place for a burger fries and coke in Miami.

If your in a hurry eat some where else. They make the food as soon as it is ordered. Great burgers, funny place to stop by and check out. If you like old cars. During summer a car show is put on the last weekend of every month a lot of fun

The best burger in town! Asked for your burger to be grilled (it's an off the menu secret). The cherry limeades are ridiculously good! Made from scratch! And don't try the KU-KU fries! So good regular fries will never be enough to satisfy you!

This is a nice stop for Route 66 enthusiasts or history buffs in general. But as for the food itself, it was nothing extraordinary. It was just a nice stop and photo op. I don't even remember what I ate.

As burger joints go I really liked this place, not filthy but not antiseptically clean either and it smelled like a burger joint! I kinda like that. Truth: we were pretty hungry when we got there but even so my burger was one of the better burger joint burgers I've eaten. They are pretty good sized too so if you... More

visit Miami, Oklahoma for any reason this little fast food joint is worthy of a visit. I worked here as a teen over 20 years ago and the owner is great! The community loves this place. Have fun with the menu. Giant cheese is my recommendation along with any of the sides. Try the specials. They are usually pretty tasty!
