We were on a day trip seeing some Kansas byways. Had read about this place. On way to our hotel we picked up a bag at the take out window. The girl taking the orders was very funny with customers. I started a conversation with a couple of woman eating outside on tables. They said they were delicious but would... More

We stopped in on a cross country drive (thank you TA) and were amazed at the experience. Steve (the owner) was behind the tiny counter and was super friendly. We ate at the tiny bar inside and they just kept the sliders coming. We got to chat with the locals, learn about the history (apparently White Castle opened the same... More

Do not go inside to eat. Go in for a quick look at the ambience. Then place your order at the outside window. Failure to follow the preceding instructions means your will not let you back inside until you've changed your clothes Order at least three for everyone and probably six for the guys. They are all the same. A... More

After reading the reviews, we thought it would be fun to stop and try the little onion burgers after out visit to the Eisenhower Library. We sat on the stools, ordered a half dozen to split and enjoyed every morsel. And, we had that greasy kitchen smell in our car for the next two days - yes, we changed our... More

Cozy is always a great place to stop for 6 or 12 burgers. I think they have changed. The amount of beef seems to have increased. At first I thought I had taken a bite of a double. Great improvement!

The history of The Cozy Inn Hamburgers started in 1922 with a man named Bob Kinkel in a six stool diner selling “sliders” for only five cents. In the 1930’s when the depression hit Kansas The Cozy Inn remained open do to the low over head. It was not until the Smoky Hills Air Force Base was open in the... More

I waited 20 mins outside for 6 sliders out in the heat. Going inside makes you stink of fast food so I waited outside. The guy who took my order wrote down my name then when people who showed up after I did were about to get their order they claimed they didn't write my order down. I didn't receive... More

When we walked in we were asked, "Do you want to eat inside with us?" Keep in mind there are only 6 bar stools at the counter. A very unique experience from yesteryear.

Cheap and cheerful sliders in one of the few remaining 6 seat counter dives. Nice folks, cozy place and as another said, "free cozy cologne". Order ahead in driving thru and you are in and out quickly! Don't miss 'em!

Cozy Burger is an Icon of Salina and burger resturants in the US! I stop everytime I am passing through on I-70! Worth the time! Tied with Powers Hamburgers in Ft. Wayne, Indiana for World's best sliders!
