“Comfort Food, Elevated.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Sometimes the simplest food is the best food, right? But that doesn't mean simple food should be plain. Well, the Burger Stand takes the simplicity of the burger joint to a whole other level.

They have a great selection of beers. They have burgers, but they also have vegetarian options, and corn dogs, and non-beef burgers. And when you read the menu, it's all so tempting. They do a bunch of different varieties of french fries, and the ones I had were amazing.

If I'm in Topeka again, this is the first place I'll think of going to eat at. Simple food, but packed with flavor, at a very affordable price. Just an awesome place.

“Great burgers for a decent price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This place is the bomb!!!! The burgers are good and juicy and the sweet potato fries are delicious! If you are wanting a great tasting burger with a great atmosphere, you better try this place out.

The back room with the ping pong tables and arcade games along with the bar is a great place to hang out with friends and have a great time.

“Burgers are great, salads are too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

my favorite burger is "the smoke". There fries are top notch. The fries alone can be a meal. I love the granny salad. it also can be a meal in and of itself. Love sitting at the bar, its spacious and has an inviting feeling. the staff is another reason to visit this place, and to top the list. they have ping pong tables.

“Best Burgers in T-town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I was so impressed with my recent trip to the burger stand. I ordered the Greek burger. Feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes, olive tapenade, and local greens top a made to order patty, and a butter toasted bun rounds out this creation of magnificence. Not only are the burgers delicious, but to pair them with truffle fries is a must! The staff is super friendly, super helpful, and always greet you with a smile. I will definitely be going back to try a few different menu items and to enjoy a hip and welcoming environment.
