“Great Burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We came here on a whim, since the restaurant we wanted to go to wasn't open yet. The price seemed a little steep, but once you tasted the food you realize it's worth the price. They are thick burgers and cooked perfectly. They have a wide variety of food. We all ordered different fries and sides, so we could taste a few. They were all awesome. It's a big place and it's very open. The tables aren't on top of each other, so you don't feel crowded at all. My only complaint was the ketchup. I love ketchup on my burger and this ketchup tasted off. Threw off the taste of my burger, so I took it off.

“Great Burgers and Fries!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

We have been to the Burger Stand several times. We usually get a Kobe burger and share it with a generous order of fries. Unless you are really hungry, this will fill you up. Try the Truffle Fries with various dipping sauces, they give you enough for two.

The ambiance is rather spartan, but we will keep coming back. They have ping pong and a pool table in the back, for those who want to stay and play. Good food, good value.

“Inovative for Topeka Ks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

People complain about the price of the burgers but you get what you pay for. Quality! My favorite fries are the Truffle oil and parmesan and sweet potatoes. I do not care for the tofu fries. Good selection of beers and check out the back room for a game of pool.

“Comfort Food, Elevated.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Sometimes the simplest food is the best food, right? But that doesn't mean simple food should be plain. Well, the Burger Stand takes the simplicity of the burger joint to a whole other level.

They have a great selection of beers. They have burgers, but they also have vegetarian options, and corn dogs, and non-beef burgers. And when you read the menu, it's all so tempting. They do a bunch of different varieties of french fries, and the ones I had were amazing.

If I'm in Topeka again, this is the first place I'll think of going to eat at. Simple food, but packed with flavor, at a very affordable price. Just an awesome place.
