9 Underrated Kansas Restaurants That Belong On Your Bucket List
We really can’t get enough of Kansas’ restaurant eats. There’s so much to discover as you travel the state, and food is a big part of that. Instead of stopping by your usual place during your next road trip, why not try one of these underrated Kansas restaurants instead?
1. Dudley's Done Right - 2402 N State St., Iola, KS
Dudley's Done Right is BBQ exactly like you'd expect. It's always done right, and anything with sauce on it is a great option to order for your first visit.
2. Papa Bob's - 11610 Kaw Dr., Bonner Springs, KS
If you'd like to take on this challenge, be my guest. Otherwise, I'll be ordering off the regular menu, which includes much less of a stomachache as well as a smaller portion.
3. Cy's Hoof and Horn - 425 N Commercial Ave., Sedgwick, KS
We've praised Cy's before for the chicken fried steak, but what about their regular steak? Just as great! Covered in taxidermied animals and full of flavor, this restaurant is one you shouldn't miss.
4. Biemer's BBQ - 2120 W 9th St., Lawrence, KS
Biemer's seemed like a great place to stop while I came through Lawrence, because the smell brought me right up to the doors. Inside you'll find seasoned fries, great meat, and a sauce that never quits. What's their secret?
5. Ruffino's Italian Restaurant - 2 Rock Island Rd., Liberal, KS
Italian food is irresistible to many Kansans, and we can't get enough of their pasta here at Ruffino's. but the fresh bread is the reason we'll keep coming back again and again.
6. Rusty Tractor - 410 N Main St., Kensington, KS
The Rusty Tractor has caught our eye before, and they're still making great burgers and fries here in Kensington, if you're ever out that way.
7. Stacy's Restaurant - 118 W Flint Hills Blvd., Junction City, KS
Stacy's is a diner that has plenty of old charm, but the food is fresh and never gets old.
8. J's Carry Out - 27 Commercial St., Emporia, KS
J's is a wonderful place with great burgers and fries to keep even the pickiest eaters happy. Who could go wrong with burgers and fries?
9. Stockyard Restaurant - 360 West Madison St., Fredonia, KS
Stockyard is a wonderful restaurant packed with specials like chicken fried steak, prime rib, or surf 'n' turf. Stop by sometime for a great classic meal we can't get enough of.
