We don't go to Lawrence often, but we have been there several times, and many times we've driven by Runza and frequently commented that we need to try their food sometime. We finally made it a point to eat there. We were very pleased. Both of us ordered Italian combos ($7) - Runza sandwich, drink, and choice of fries, onion... More

Everytime I am in Lawrence I stop at Runza. Being from Nebraska I grew up on this food. Not only are the Runzas great, you cannot go wrong with their burgers, fries, and onion rings. I prefer the Cheese and the Mushroom Swiss Runzas, but everything on the menu is good!

Second rate fast food - and I do not understand the appeal of the Runza sandwich. Just go to a better place - they are everywhere.

If you like bierocks you will love runza sandwiches...essentially the same thing. The location is easy to find - not too far south of the KU campus. We had #1s (Runza with cheese combos). The staff was friendly, our order came promptly and correctly. Something different from every other fast food joint. Hopefully they will keep spreading south thru Kansas!

Had lunch at this fast food restaurant. For fast food, this is very good! Very friendly people working the counter and quick to take your order. Even told me he was going to give me their Senior Discount without me having to ask if they had one. On this particular day, I had the cheese runza which is more of... More

Came here and ordered fries and a cheese burger. The order came as a bacon double cheeseburger. I didn't complain and enjoyed the delicious sandwich. The fries were pretty good also. A good place for a tasty snack. 1 dollar drinks and ice cream!

Love Runza burgers with cheese, and their fries are very good. Took a couple grandkids for lunch. They liked them also. They each got a free kids dessert also. The cashiers were very helpful and let them have shakes. Quick and hot to table.

Runza is a locally owned restaurant that is known for it's Runza Burger. I've stopped in many times for a quick lunch while shopping. The fast food is indeed quality. Much, much different than going to the McD places. Yuck! It is all about quality here. I love their fries! I shouldn't eat so many but they are soooooo good!

Runzas are fantastic. It is the closest thing to a bierock. Get it with cheese. I buy extras and freeze them. The hamburgers are good too. We wish they had a Runza in Topeka.
