The outsides of these restaurants don’t have a lot going for them in terms of curb appeal, but once you know what’s inside, you’ll never pass by without your mouth watering. All of the amazing food here more than makes up for the underrated appearances. Ignoring what you might read from the outside, come check out what’s cooking on the inside of these underrated Kansas restaurants.
1. Exit 14
This tiny spot hiding out in small town Kansas has a lot of flavors you'll easily recognize from childhood. Whether it's chicken and noodles, chicken fried steak, or hot beef sandwiches. All of their food is homemade with a touch of love, just like you'd have at home.
Address: 512 Maple Street, Gypsum, KS 67448
