These 10 Extremely Tiny Restaurants In Kansas Are Actually Amazing
“Bigger is better.” You’ve heard the saying, and in several cases it’s true—except, of course, when referring to these 10 tiny Kansas restaurants that are small on everything but taste:
1. Smitty's Carry Out (Kingman)
What the restaurant lacks in seating (it has a total of five tables, with a few additional picnic tables outside), it makes up for with its delicious old-fashioned hamburgers, fries, and rings.
2. Prairie Nut Hut (Altoona)
In total, the Prairie Nut Hut seats about 40... but you'd be "nuts" not to wait in line to try their famous Rocky Mountain Oysters.
3. Mad Jack's Fresh Fish (Kansas City)
Don't be surprised if you walk into this fresh fish haven and find all six booths occupied. Hate to wait? Get it to go!
4. Beaumont Hotel (Beaumont)
While the 50s-style diner itself doesn't have much seating, management thought ahead and created an additional "Prairie Fire" dining room for hotel patrons.
5. Gridiron Cafe (Hope)
Unfortunately, I was unable to come across any interior or exterior shots of the Gridiron, but trust me when I say this small Cafe (and its total of nine booths) packs a flavorful punch!
6. Ty's Diner (Wichita)
Classic comfort foods the way they should be served: Deep fried and in a nostalgic, 12-booth setting.
7. Bunker Hill Cafe (Bunker Hill)
The historic 1917 limestone building that houses the Cafe offers 10 tables and some of the best filet mignon in the state.
8. The Cozy Inn (Salina)
Cozy burgers are pretty much the best food ever, but if you step one foot into the restaurant, you'll be smelling like sliders for the next three weeks... Maybe it isn't a bad thing that the Inn only seats six?
9. JD's Country Style Chicken (Hays)
JD's may have more seating than the other restaurants listed, but not enough to keep large crowds from forming weekend nights.
10. Bobo's Drive-In (Topeka)
Since 1953, Bobo's has been serving their incredible American cuisine from this small, five-table location.
