A few weeks ago, I finally had a chance to eat at The Burger Stand in Lawrence, Kansas! My friend Andrea has been raving about them for a long time, so I figured it was time to stop by and grab one of their burgers.
Before I get to the food (which was great by the way!), I have to talk about their awesome building! They sit right on Mass Street, the main street in the college town of Lawrence. The whole street is lined with shops, restaurants, bars and businesses…you could easily spend all day there and not make it everywhere you want to go.
Inside and out, The Burger Stand is a really cool building. The atmosphere is also laid-back, which I like…you order at a counter, find a table and grab your food from the kitchen window when it’s ready.
Here’s what I ordered…The Smoke Burger, topped with applewood smoked bacon, smoked gouda cheese and chipotle-cocoa ketchup, and Cajun Fries. (They also had bacon-wrapped frog legs on the menu, but I’m not that adventurous.) Everything was absolutely delicious…. and considering I’m snowed in here in Kansas City today, I would give almost anything to be able to have this for lunch today!
