Okay, this is a college-y type of place with pool tables, pop a shot, ping-pong etc. and the burgers are definitely the food star- BUT... the SAUCES! They have several house made sauces that you can add to your burger, dip your fries in etc. Some of the options are a Cocoa-Chipotle Ketchup, Marsh-mellow Fluff, Jalapeno Ranch, Garlic Aioli etc....

This is a great place to find burgers and fries you can't find other places. It's a modern, ecletic atmosphere with great service and even betteer food. Duck fat fries . . . . need I say more?

The Burger Stand is a cute restaurant/bar with "gourmet" burgers and fries. Close to Washburn University. Order at the bar and serve yourself. I tried the Thai Turkey burger and it was great! They have a number of different burgers to choose from and a variety of French fries (sweet potato fries, duck fat fries, etc). Full bar.

Had some free time in Topeka and was hankering for a burger. I lucked out driving by this location and decided to pop in. Although a bit pricey the burgers were excellent (tasty and well made) and the atmosphere just right. I'll definitely be back next time I am in town.

My granddaughter told me about this place. She had eaten here before and raved about it. She couldn't remember the name or address so we drove around for about 15 minutes before locating it. I was very pleased with the choices. Didn't order a beer as I was trying to be a good example. The burgers were fantastic. Perfectly cooked.... More

I had the "Classic" Burger cooked medium rare and it was perfect. It was a family outing with my wife and three of our grandkids! We all had a different burger and we got... More

I love this place. The burgers are juicy and delicious and the sweet potato fries are just amazing. My favorite part is the roasted marshmallow sauce you can dip your fries in. It is simply divine.

This place is a little tricky to find. It is in the first floor of an apartment building and no outdoor posted signs really. They are just painted over the doorways so keep looking. You will find it. This is a order at the front and they call your name when it's ready type place. The burgers are rather expensive... More
