Second visit to Runza...1st to the Lawrence location

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).

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

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.

Arunza is like a bierrock. The cheese are the best. They have a good hamburger. I also had the fish. Quite nice! I wish they had Runza in Topeka.

I'm from Nebraska and I love Runzas. I was so happy to find the Lawrence location after moving to Kansas in 1996. The regular Runza (10/10) is perfect for me, especially when driving. The frings are the best, some fries (10/10) and some onion rings (10/10). The service is always friendly and fast.

Stopped for a quick lunch today, always consistently good food. The staff is attentive, cordial, helpful, and focused on customers. Clean eating area, always a great place for take out too.
