We hit this Winstead's for a busy Saturday lunch, and the placed was packed and buzzing. We were quickly seated and just as quickly greeted by our waitress with glasses of ice water. Orders were taken shortly, and the orders were out in good time, especially considering the crowd.

Steakburgers are the thing here, and they are thin and fried hot and crispy. The girls got the "50/50" --- a side for people who can't decide between fries and onion rings, it come with a good portion of both, and both were good ... our wimpy girls should have SHARED an order. The shakes are thick and frosty, served in classic tall "real glass" malted glasses ... and the girls could have shared one of them, too, as they are pretty big and rich. For non-steak-eaters, they have a grilled chicken sandwich, which is pretty well presented, if a bit puny for the price (a couple or three times as much as a steakburger). I noted that they also had tuna salad, but none of us tried that.

If you are going out for burgers and shakes in KC, you ought to hit Winsteads.

This was the first time I had been to this restaurant. The waitress was rude. Brought me a cup of water half full no straws. Didn't ask if I wanted anything else to drink! Later brought the food out and the check not even stopping to ask if we needed or wanted anything else!! I saw as the staff sat together in the back and talked the whole time instead of assisting us properly. This was the first and last time I'll be caught in this establishment.

We stopped for lunch and they did not disappoint! Old fashioned hamburgers, sodas and shakes just like the ones back in the day. The tower of onion rings will not disappoint you. We enjoyed the food, the service was great and we will return.

Winstead's Steakburger's are the best old time grilled burger in the Kansas City area. They have great milk shakes and shoe string frys. The frys are great when they are hot. Not so good cold

Really can't beat a Winstead's hamburger and chocolate shake.... Been going for years and years and still pulling in the crowds .... Wholesome foods well prepared and great family atmosphere in the Plaza restaurant....
