“Good food in an old-timey diner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

My family and I had lunch here twice during our weekend in Kansas City. This place has been around for a while - my husband grew up in Kansas City and has fond memories of Winstead's. The diner atmosphere is great. We enjoyed the burgers, onion rings, fries and milk shakes. Service was good and efficient. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Kansas City! Highly recommend!

“Like a Denny's but better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

If you are staying Near Country Clob Plaza - especially if at the Mariott Country Club - this place is handy for sandwiches, breakfast and soft serve ice cream. The drive in window open 24 hours (you can walk up to it too) so handy for late night snack

“Old fashioned burger joint.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Ate here for supper/snack and for breakfast. It was a good old fashioned burger joint, with a pretty good breakfast. Prices are quite reasonable as well. Kids loved the blueberry pancakes.

“Remember the 50's & 60's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Remember the 50's & 60's ? This was Kansas City's drive inn for Saturday night cruising. The food & shakes have not changed.

“A KC Classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Some things never change, the very good ones for sure! Winstead's still serves up the best hamburgers in the city with a side of fries or onion rings. Add a special "Frosty" frozen chocolate drink or a shake or malt, and let yourself drift back in time to those early, simpler days. The wait staff is good with just enough of a smile to be considered friendly but always focused on efficency with their speedy service. The menu has expanded to include salads, chicken sandwiches, etc. but stick with the basics for a great meal. You will be back!
