Stopped in for lunch off a recommendation. Asked the guy which was the best burger and he suggested the black and blue. It was excellent. We shared an order of fries and didn't finish. Plenty on the plate. Service was very good and the servers were polite. The iced tea was OK, but not bad. I'll probably stop in here... More

Great burgers, fries and onion rings! Must visit the sauce bar! Make sure you try the Marshmallow sauce! Not really sure what you are supposed to put it on, but it's good enough to eat alone! Which we did... Mmmm!

We've been here many times and we have tried almost all of the burgers. They made to order and you can certainly taste the difference. Try the black bean burger--it's really good.

We visited this restaurant after shopping in Lawrence for my daughter's birthday; this was her choice. I know she choose or the Marshmallow Dipping Sauce for the Sweet Potato Fries. 3 of the crew ordered burgers. They were all impressed. All 3 were ordered to be different "donelness". They were all satisfied with how they were prepared. I ordered a... More

The Burger Stand is one of my favorite places to eat in Lawrence. We can also take our grandchildren there, and they love the food as well..We have eaten all the burgers and loved every one. The sides are terrific. We especially love the truffle french fries. The wait staff is very cheerful and friendly. We love it.

If you visit Lawrence you have to go to the burger stand. Great burgers, wonderful truffle fries with all kinds of dipping sauces to compliment them. Good selection of craft brews and friendly service. Eat here. You won't be sorry!

Had lunch at The Burger Stand on way home from Texas to Omaha. TripAdvisor led me to a great place. Wonderful atmosphere, great burger and shake, fun environment. Wish I had time for a beer!

If you like burgers, dogs and fries -- and c'mon, who doesn't -- this place is worth a short hop off the interstate and a trip downtown. Typical college town environment. But there's nothing typical about the fare. Wow. And try a milkshake!

The Burger Stand in Topeka is a favorite when we want a good burger. This was our first time dining at the restaurant/bar in Lawrence and it has great food too. The burgers are good quality and the sweet potato fries & marshmallow sauce are amazing. The portions are so big that I always have to share with someone. I... More
