The Burger Stand is a cute restaurant/bar with "gourmet" burgers and fries. Close to Washburn University. Order at the bar and serve yourself. I tried the Thai Turkey burger and it was great! They have a number of different burgers to choose from and a variety of French fries (sweet potato fries, duck fat fries, etc). Full bar.

Had some free time in Topeka and was hankering for a burger. I lucked out driving by this location and decided to pop in. Although a bit pricey the burgers were excellent (tasty and well made) and the atmosphere just right. I'll definitely be back next time I am in town.

My granddaughter told me about this place. She had eaten here before and raved about it. She couldn't remember the name or address so we drove around for about 15 minutes before locating it. I was very pleased with the choices. Didn't order a beer as I was trying to be a good example. The burgers were fantastic. Perfectly cooked.... More

This is one of the greatest burgers I have ever eaten. The entire visit was amazing. Great menu with so many options for your eating pleasure. I had the "Classic" Burger cooked medium rare and it was perfect. It was a family outing with my wife and three of our grandkids! We all had a different burger and we got... More

I love this place. The burgers are juicy and delicious and the sweet potato fries are just amazing. My favorite part is the roasted marshmallow sauce you can dip your fries in. It is simply divine.

This place is a little tricky to find. It is in the first floor of an apartment building and no outdoor posted signs really. They are just painted over the doorways so keep looking. You will find it. This is a order at the front and they call your name when it's ready type place. The burgers are rather expensive... More

Really good hamburgers with different kinds to choose from. When you are done, they have a nice pool room and ping pong table. Fun for all ages.

Hubby and I like to go and split a burger. Somehow, they just taste better here. The burgers are BIG. The cheese fries are too DIE for. The spicy fries are good with the jalapeño ranch dressing. It's kind of a funky place, near the Washburn campus. People watch for a little while.

I was in Topeka for a conference at the Capital Plaza Hotel and had a short window of time to leave for lunch. The Burger Stand was only a couple minutes' drive away which made it an easy choice. I had the Classic Burger and the Parmesan Truffle Fries. They were both great! The service was fast and friendly -... More
