I read about this restaurant and decided to try it. Although in the article I read, it was described as fast food, it was better than fast food. I asked the person behind the counter what her favorite food was and she said the double cheeseburger, so I tried that. It was very good. We also tried the Ku Ku... More

Good lunch, average value. Kid friendly. Not a place for foodies. Historic place located on the mother road.

Went here based on Trip Advisor rating. It was mid afternoon so was not too busy. Even though we were the only ones at the counter it took a few minutes to be asked for our order. Everyone working there seemed to have a "just kill me" look on their faces. Almost $17 and 15 minutes later. We had out... More

There used to be over 200 these Ku-Ku burger places in Midwest. This Waylan's Ku-Ku place is the only survivor. And I'm glad it still exists. The Giant Double Cheeseburger was delicious. Great Route 66 nostalgia and tasty food.

This is a must stop when near Miami (Mi-am-a) OK. Family run business with a great history. Met Gene Waylan and his daughter. Every member of the staff was friendly and fun. Long line, but the experience, food and family are well worth the wait. We went back twice :) Stop by and pay respect to the history of Route... More

We stopped for lunch and we both had a cheeseburger and french fries. The wife had a chocolate shake and I had a soda. The service was fast, and the burgers were excellent. The restaurant was clean and well lighted, and we really enjoyed the food. We recommend it.

I've always loved this little place. The unique sign draws you inside. The menu contains a wide variety of options. I love their double giant cheeseburger. Almost every time I've been the owner is at the grill cooking burgers. The front dining area is a giant sunroom surrounded by windows. Just a fun place to bring the kids and the... More
