9 Small Town Kansas Restaurants You Should Have Tried By Now
Finding good food outside of your comfort zone is a hard thing to do, especially if you don’t know where to start. Fortunately, this list is here to give you somewhere to start from. These small town Kansas restaurants are here to fill you will home style eats while you relax in the relative quiet of small town life. The people that live here are almost better than the amazing food they make! Let’s take a look at today’s list.
1. LMNO Pizza - 101 S Ohio St., Mount Hope, KS
I give kudos to whoever named this pizza joint, and just like the unique name, there's no better pizza in town than you'll find right here. Every bite of your pizza is made with love, just for you.
2. Jim's Steak House - 1912 N Broadway, Pittsburg, KS
Jim's is a steak house that not only makes amazing steaks, but their onion straws are the perfect appetizer to fill up on before your meal.
3. Aunt Toadies - 1411 E Wall St., Fort Scott, KS
Aunt Toadies sounds a little odd for a restaurant name, but even if there was a toad cooking the food here, it's still the best cooking I've had in ages. The friendly staff only makes the meal even better, in my eyes.
4. Made From Scratch - 527 27th St., Wilson, KS
Much like the name, the food you order at this comfortable restaurant is also made from scratch. It brings the feelings of your childhood dinner table back, like you just received one of your favorite meals. Plus, who doesn't like an open faced beef sandwich?
5. Butterfly Cafe - 602 Rennerfield Rd., Goodland, KS
The Butterfly Cafe was recently introduced to me, and I wasn't surprised to find another great restaurant hiding out in small town Kansas. Goodland is really a good land after all!
6. Joan's Cafe - 454 Martin Ave., Stafford, KS
Joan's is a warm and friendly restaurant that reminds you of retro diners, except you will find that they're usually only open for breakfast and lunch. If you're on a trip near Stafford and need to stop for breakfast at 6 a.m., Joan's is the place to go.
7. L&T Family Restaurant - 1016 Main St., Goodland, KS
L&T was recommended to me by our Only In Kansas Facebook comments, and boy does it taste just like they said. The fried chicken here is amazing, and worth a stop if you find yourself in town. Another point for Goodland!
8. Maury's Restaurant - 521 6th St., Clay Center, KS
Maury's is a versatile restaurant that serves everything from full meals to sandwiches, all from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. When you order here, you truly feel like you're learning about the town itself. What better way than to start with their food?
9. Down Home Family Restaurant - 1515 N Penn Ave., Independence, KS
Now if your family didn't make chicken and noodles, I definitely think you're missing out. This restaurant is all about those family meals that Kansans loved to have as a kid, and you'll find that you're thinking of home with every bite.
