I'm not really into ridiculously large burgers that fall apart after a few bites. I'd much rather eat several small burgers that are manageable. TJ's burgers are 1/2 pound so it's big enough for two people.

Great and tasty fresh burgers, old school shakes and a very friendly staff. A great find in Wichita.

If you’re In the Delano district check out TJs Burger House their burgers are made hot and fresh and the service is always great. The hickory burger and cheese fries I ordered we’re both on point

This will mark the very first unfavorable review I have ever left on here. Were it not going to end in a painful surgery, I'd let it go - but, that is not the case. The burgers are just fine and the service is whatever...if you don't mind waiting nearly an hour for your food (I've seen this complaint registered often, online, for this place) but, their attention to detail and actual investment in the customer's satisfaction is so lacking, that I'd suggest eating anywhere BUT here if you love yourself. The burgers are, indeed, huge and tasty but I can come up with six places off the top of my head that I would recommend before this one. Wichita has got it's cheeseburger game ON point, so it's not like there's a shortage. If you want to hear the conversation at your table, during the painfully long wait time before your food arrives, you might want to invest in a hearing aid. It's one of those places that is so loud and ringing, I really never hear what anybody is talking about (I've tried it three times) so I'm relegated to smiling and nodding a lot. I've even overlooked the long hair that was packed into my meal, one time. HOWever, the last visit I made there was the same week that I'd had a rough little surgery, so I already wasn't at my best. When I had to scurry into the bathroom, before we left, to throw up - THAT is where things went south with a quickness. I was rushing so as to avoid a messier situation than I was already packed for, and when I put my hands on the toilet seat and bent over to barf, the seat (with all my 120 pounds) flew off the toilet and I hit my head on the rim while my chin took a dip in the decidely filthy toilet. The seat flew off the toilet and I crashed to the floor, slamming my back and hip hard. I screamed and waited for anybody to come help me up, but nobody was nearby to hear and I'm fairly sure THAT activity is way above anybody's pay grade. When I recovered, I limped to the cashier and told her that the toilet was broken and she giggled like a school girl and said, "Oh yea! I noticed that!" I told her what had happened and she giggled more and nodded, so I assumed she couldn't hear me just like I couldn't hear anybody ever when I ate there. I wrote them, via FB messenger and an email, and received no replies. I meet with the surgeon next week for ruptured discs and a hairline fracture in my hip. SOoooo, seriously: DO NOT give these people your money. You know who DOES rock AND provides exceptional customer service in an environment where you can hear conversations? The following in no particular order: Dempsey's (killer vibe, awesome burgers AND a raft of bacon that will curl your hair with goodness) or TY's (classic Wichita goodness with all the love and affection AND killer burgers) or Walt's (three locations I think and they ALL rock) or Nuway (crumbly goodness that I've enjoyed since I was a kid) or Sports Burger (drive through but awesome goodness for a park picnic) or or or... So many good cheeseburgers and so little time. nom.nom.nomMore

A little bit of a blast from the past. Great handmade burgers along with fries, rings and shakes. Excellent place to take the family, but bring your appetite as the burgers are not small.

One of the best burgers in Wichita. The burgers are large and a full order of fries is more than enough to share with someone else. Service was great when we were there.

Well this was one of the better burgers I have had. The atmosphere is a throwback in time. The waitress was sort of nice. The fires came in a large heloing and there is plenty to share. We were very full when done with our...meal.More

They have really great food but limited seating and are busy at the normal feeding times. Staff is nice but usually seems short handed if you visit when it's busy. When I want a good burger, this is the place we go. It is a...very large portion so come hungry or you will be taking some home with youMore

Great burgers and fries. A favorite at lunch time so expect a wait until about 1:30 when the working crowd leaves. As you walk in the place smells of what everyone is there for which is hamburgers made on a flat top grill. Waits for...your food after ordering can be lengthy, so this isn't a grab a quick bite place, but worth the wait. Fries are plentiful and we often share a half order.More
