In fact, you can have it for yourself by visiting one of these 11 small town Kansas restaurants where everyone knows your name:
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. Puffy's Steak and Ice House (215 Main St. Maple Hill, KS 66507)
Whether you are dining in or having Puffy's cater your next special event, you are guaranteed not only a delicious meal, but friendly service as well.
2. Buster's Saloon (104 W Main St. Sun City, KS 67143)
Don't let the name fool you; there is so much more to Buster's than just beer and hard liquor. (In fact, Buster's serves some of the best steaks in the state!)
3. Guy & Mae's Tavern (119 W William St. Williamsburg, KS 66095)
It's obvious that a town with less than 400 residents would know pretty much everyone's name... but a small town where everyone knows everyone that also serves some of the best BBQ in the state? Now THAT is something special!
4. Poplar Pizza (202 S Wabash St. Howard, KS 67349)
Who says you have to travel to New York to get a delicious slice of New York-style pizza?!
5. Big Ed's (104 W Bressler Bird City, KS 67731)
When it comes to a thick and perfectly cooked steak in northwest Kansas, there is only one Big Ed's! (Oh and the prices? EXTREMELY reasonable.)
6. Granny Wolfe's Green Door (120 N Main St. Sedan, KS 67361)
Remember how delicious grandma's cinnamon rolls used to be? Granny Wolfe's are just as good (if not better!) Sorry, Grandma...
7. Reece's Cafe (202 Pioneer St. Alden, KS 67512)
If you think these buttery pancakes topped with fresh fruit LOOK good, just wait until you get a TASTE of them...

9. Josie's Ristorante (400 Main St. Scammon, KS 66773)
For the best authentic Italian food located outside of —well, Italy— there is only one Josie's Ristorante! (Did we mention they do takeout and catering on some of their most iconic meals, like this yummy rigatoni?)
10. Crazy R's Bar & Grill (1618 Main St. Goodland, KS 67735)
The next time you're traveling west on I-70, don't stop for lunch at a generic fast food joint; stop by Crazy R's in Goodland for an order of the Country Fried Bacon...
