The portions are nice sized! Don't skip the shake! So very good! The onions rings are to die for. Place was clean and staff very helpful.

This place is arguably the worst place we have eaten at in the USA. If I could provide a Zero rating, I would. The service was horrible....sign as you enter states" wait to be seated" and the servers walked passed us several times like we did not even exist. It was not busy at all...many booths were open. They did... More

Old style charm. Good diner menu. Al sorts of different people sitting, eating, enjoying each others company. If only other places has this environment.

My wife and I went there first date in 1961. We think the hamburgers are the best in the world. You need to like fresh onion, pickle, mustard and ketchup on cheeseburger. French fries , onion rings, and cherry cream coke are very good.

OMG...What a fun littler diner! The food was traditional 1950's food. The service was fairly quick and the food came out just as fast. Really enjoyed our visit and the atmosphere there. Had the chili dog and 50/50 (tots and onion rings). The price was reasonable!

It couldn't be simpler -- burgers, fries and shakes but the service and the playlist made it so much fun. The food was delicious and really old-fashioned prices too.

The burgers were rather thin and not all that tasty. Hard to believe that they didn't have tomato slices available for their burgers!

Stopped at Winstead's for lunch while I was visiting in Kansas City last week. I had taken my daughter and her friends for shakes there in the late 90's when they were on a trip to the city. Of course the girls loved their famous shakes, so this visit I thought I'd try it again. It's good diner food and... More

Went about 8 pm on a snowy evening, About 200 yards from all the expensive places in the "swanky" area. Loved it. had a double steak burger, tater tots and fries; topped with a vanilla shake. Perfect flavors, great friendly service, all at a very reasonable price. Would highly recommend if your looking for good local burger flavor!

As an original to Kansas City, Winsteads is a must stop when visiting. The burgers and onion rings are great but nothing tops the Sky Scraper milkshakes. A traditional All American diner, Winsteads is a hidden gem.
