You need to go here for the experience, not the food. I find the food pretty average but the experience is priceless. Unless you're old enough to remember a day before McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger Kings dotted the landscape you'll have probably never experienced going...More

If you like burgers cooked an eighth pound at a time this is the place for you. I happen to enjoy beef cooked this way. You can have one patty, two patties or three parties complete with cheese and grilled onions in the same proportions....More

This is NOT five star dining, this is FIVE STAR HISTORY! This little hot-spot has been in the same location/building since 1937! It is the classic greasy spoon that everyone knows about except the tourists! Open 24/7, only about TEN seats in the front area...More

Now this is no frills but a great feeling of 40's dinner experience in Kansas City I could imagine sitting next to Charlie Parker or dizzy just before a gig. They don't makem like this in a city anymore. Here since 1937.

I'm embarrassed to admit that a Kansas Citian, I've never eaten at Town Topic until an impromptu staycation (facilitated by an ice storm) allowed us to check it out. Our family of five ate here for breakfast. Keep in mind this is a small diner,...More

a journey into the diner world. Basic no frills solid good food. Always great to try out places that have survived time and proven to produce a consistent and respectable product. Breakfast was good as well as the burgers. Diner grub classic.

It's one of the best burgers around. It's iconic KC. The pies and shakes are also a good reason to go.
