Annual Survey of Favorite Kansas Restaurants Reveals Kansan’s Love for Burgers & American Fare
Lawrence Again Ranks as City with Most Favorites

Everyone has a favorite place to grab a bite to eat, but which Kansas restaurants have the most fans? Each year, the Kansas Restaurant and Hospitality Association (KRHA) conducts an online survey to find out. This years survey was completed by nearly 1,000 respondents across the state. They were asked one simple question, What is your favorite Kansas-based restaurant? The results have been compiled and released as Kansans Twenty Favorite Restaurants of 2018.


Its inspiring to see so much support for Kansas restaurants, said Adam Mills, CEO of KRHA. One thing is certainly very clear; Kansans are loyal diners, as our top three favorites have made the list the last two years 


 #1 - Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que
Kansas City
#2 - Free State Brewing Company 
#3 - The Burger Stand
Lawrence & Topeka



The number one overall choice among Kansans, and one of three barbecue restaurants on the list was Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que . Second place went to the Lawrence staple, Free State Brewing Company, followed by its neighbor along Mass Street and Topeka favorite, The Burger Stand. The top five was rounded out by KC’s Jack Stack Barbecue and fast food favorite Spangles, based in Wichita and now found in cities across Kansas.
Lawrence remained the favorite foodie city in Kansas, with the most restaurants on the list with ten, followed closely by Kansas City with seven and Wichita with five.

In terms of cuisine, American food was the undisputed favorite served up by 16 of 20 top vote-getters. Among American food, burgers are the featured menu item at 7 of the top 16 favorites.
