These 9 Small Town Restaurants So Hidden They Might As Well Be Secrets
Small town restaurants are irresistible to any Kansan who has been to a few in their lifetime. While we understand if you want to only stick with places you know, but after seeing some of the foods that come out of small town kitchens, who could resist?
1.Granny Wolfe's Green Door — 120 W Main St., Sedan, Kansas
The Green Door is a great little cafe that's full of small-town charm and the sort of food your family would make for you. What more could you want?
2. Buster's Saloon — 104 W Main St., Sun City, Kansas
Buster's makes great meats, and no matter what you choose to have for lunch, you'll find that they're a great place to stop if you don't miss them on your way through.
3. Poor Boys Steakhouse — 127 Galveston St., Thayer, Kansas
Poor Boys is another steakhouse that I feel like is often missed out on when you drive by. Their steaks are juicy and amazing, and they belong on any Kansas bucket list.
4. Gebhardt's Chicken Dinners — 124 N 260th St., Mulberry, Kansas
Gebhardt's really knows their way around chicken, and their chicken noodle will take you back to the good old days. Chicken is important to Kansas, and we love everything Gebhardt's does with it.
5. Branding Iron II — 1310 State St., Phillipsburg, Kansas
The Branding Iron II might not look too busy, but that's because there just aren't too many people around. This restaurant makes amazing dishes, like your classic meat and potatoes, and more.
6. Silverado's — 112 W 2nd St., Piqua, Kansas
Silverado's is another tiny restaurant that feels less exciting outside, but as soon as you come in, you're overwhelmed by the amazing smells of all the meals you could order. Shrimp and beef tips is a great pick and a winner in my book.
7. Red Rooster Cafe — 524 W 14th, Harper, Kansas
The tiny town of Harper is usually just something you drive through when traveling, but next time, you should stop by for an amazing meal or dessert.
8. Exit 14 — 512 Maple St, Gypsum, Kansas
If you're driving through Gypsum, don't pass by Exit 14. Take the exit, because the food is worth making a pit stop for if this plate is any indication.
9. Aunt Netters Cafe — 336 Elmore St., Lecompton, Kansas
Aunt Netters is a small restaurant you might miss on the way through Lecompton, but you should definitely stop in sometime. You really feel like your aunt is cooking for you, whether your favorite is pulled pork, chili, or dessert.
