I'm embarrassed to admit that a Kansas Citian, I've never eaten at Town Topic until an impromptu staycation (facilitated by an ice storm) allowed us to check it out. Our family of five ate here for breakfast. Keep in mind this is a small diner, so you get diner quality food. However, what you get is very tasty and huge... More

a journey into the diner world. Basic no frills solid good food. Always great to try out places that have survived time and proven to produce a consistent and respectable product. Breakfast was good as well as the burgers. Diner grub classic.

It's one of the best burgers around. It's iconic KC. The pies and shakes are also a good reason to go.

This place is pretty amazing. It has been open for 70 years, almost, and does not appear to have changed much in that time. It is a tiny, grungy, simple little diner, but the prices are low, and the food is tasty. My cheeseburger was clearly made by hand, thin, and greasy, but very tasty. Exactly what you want and...

We frequently travel to KC to see the Royals play. Seems like a trip isn't complete without at least one stop to Town Topic. This is a very small classic 24/7 American diner. Only seats about 12 people. We often eat breakfast or just have hamburgers for breakfast. Make sure to get grilled onions on burger. Have been here many... More

I go here every time I visit KC, usually late at night. Perfect burgers fries & tots. Breakfast is standard diner breakfast; chill diverse crowd of all ages and walks of life. Reasonably priced, consistent. Great pie. Almost a sad or communal feel to the place, like you're there with other people who all have stories to share, but you... More

A Kansas city Icon. Great Hamburgers. They cook them fried onions. They also have great breakfast. You should try the truck stop breakfast if your real hungry.
