My wife and I love it. Service is always Johnny on the spot, the burgers, fries and pies the best, and the old style ambiance perfect.

Hamburger King is a historic hamburg restaurant on Main St. in downtown Shawnee. You order from a phone at your booth. Typical menu of burgers, fries, a tater tots. The tots are a fun side item. Staff is always friendly and food is consistent.

Nostalgic small town diner. Basic burgers and sides, and you order with a phone at your table. Service was good, food was average. It is a step back in time.

Order by picking up a phone at your table. The burger basket is super! Their onion rings are really crisp and tasty as well.

You have to fall into the classification of one of two types of people when you eat here, those that have never picked up a phone on the wall inside a restaurant to order their food and those that have, but it was a long,...long time ago. It is an old time burger dive that puts out the classic hamburger and fries. I recommend the “The Kicker” and potato wedges (hold the Miracle Whip “please!”). We ordered the onion rings too, they were good, but I liked the crispy coated potato wedges better. There is nothing fancy here, no gourmet specialty whatever burgers, just good honest hamburgers that has kept this restaurant in business since 1927. I understand why the local continue to vote this little place a one of the top places to eat in Shawnee! Oh! Their pies seem to be a big favorite too. I am not sure where folks were stuffing them after the hamburger and fries, but there were a bunch of slices of chocolate pie being delivered to the diners tables!More

This place was very good burgers were done on the flat top. A little crunch. Great burger! The chicken strips were good as well as were the wedge fries. They had a coating and were good. The chili was pretty good as well. Corn bread...was a good basic cornbread. Then you go for the pie but you may want to order it first many people di. When they run out that's it. The monkey tail pie banana and chocolate wS great. In fact all were. We went 2 days in a row and had the fruit pie. Fruit cocktail with banas and strawberry added, lemon and chocolate were all great but the coconut cream was my favorite. Will go back again.More

The store front is immediately adjacent to a pharmacy with a mural on one side. This makes it easy to spot from three of four directions. Parking is curbside and on a Saturday afternoon was readily available. You pick your booth, look over the menu...and when you are ready to order you pick up the phone and place your order. Service was reasonably quick, the staff made sure our drinks never ran low. The food was served as ordered. It was hot and tasty. As we were leaving the staff offered us take out cups for our drinks.More

For years we have drove to Shawnee 2 or 3 times per month just to eat at the Hamburger King it was great and well worth the long drive (120 miles round trip) but recently things have changed drastically. The meat on the burger is...now very thin, They charge a ludicrous price for about 10 tater tots and even have started to charge for barbecue sauce. Some changes aren't always for the better. The Hamburger King is almost 100 years old but at this rate there won't be a second 100.More
