As a burger-lover, I felt I had to try "the best burger" in Kansas City. It was pretty good--very reminiscent of the kind of burgers my mom makes--solid and built on quality ground beef. Nothing fancy but you can add all the fixins' you want...More

Take a trip back to your favorite time frame and you end up at the Westport Flea Market. Best burger I've had in a good long while. Staff is "edgy" and friendly, if that's a combination I can get away with. Thea took great care...More

Average burger. Extremely noisy and small. The menu is ok. Most offerings are fried and the salad I ordered was crammed into a tiny little bowl, t was difficult to mix the dressing into it the bowl was so small. The burger my husband had...More

This is a "locals" bar with food place. Good cheap food. We stopped in because truthfully nothing is open past 8pm in the midwest and this was about it. Once you get past the local attitudes, it's not a bad place to hang for food,...More

Westport Flea Market does have a unique way of running things, but we hope that you'll come again now that you know how everything works. We've got entertainment almost every night, stop by for Karaoke or Trivia!
