I've lived in the area for over 40 years and have never been inside the White Grill. I read a review in a travel magazine and decided I need to go there for lunch. It was one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. It...More

Best burger & Suzy Q fries! The delicious tenderloin was more than I could eat and was served with cottage cheese but they allowed baked beans as a substitute. This is a must if you are in the area. Tiny dining area so plan accordingly.

This is the first time having breakfast here and it was outstanding. Huge portions for a small price. This restaurant is small, seating maybe 30 so get there early. It is clean and extremely friendly. This is a great find!!

We love this place. It’s like being in a time machine. It still has the look, feel and smell of days gone by. Great burgers and hand cut Suzie Q fries. Also liked the chili with beans. We’re already looking forward to our next trip...More

Decided to eat here after 2 people back in KC recommended it. Burgers are made to order and not dry. We actually saw the cook pattying the burgers out of fresh hamburger. Next time will try the curly Q fries. Waitress was on her game....More

I can't be particularly objective in this review. I first visited the White Grill in my mothers arms when I was less than a year old 69 years ago...contrary to vicious rumor...it is not the same grease....This is the classic American hamburger joint. A Cheeseburger...fresh...More
