Hi there! The first time I drove past this little pop diner I laughed. Never giving a thought of trying it out. Well it was Kevin who took me there one Saturday for lunch.
It was on a day we were working on the house and Kevin said he’d take me out for lunch. It was 10:45 am when we left the house- thinking we were going to KC for our lunch. It’s about a 6 minute drive to Tonganoxie. He whipped into the parking lot for Grandpa’s Burger Box. I laughed and laughed (anyone who knows my belly laugh insert it here now….). Kevin said he wanted to get our order in now before it gets busy. This place is small. Outside of the cashier and cook, we were the only ones there.
You have seen the wooden storage sheds people have in their backyards right? Well Grandpa’s Burger Box is two of these placed side by side. Painted and renovated for making hamburgers and fries!
Okay when you walk through that door, this is the lobby area. Again small. But lots of fun things to see while you wait for your food. Just around the corner from the door is the window where you place your order. The cashier takes your order and rings it up. Then it is cooked to order while you wait. There is a bench to sit on, but I was busy looking at the walls.
For such a tiny place, the pins show a large number of people who have sought out a delicious burger!
Keep in mind we got there at 10:45 am. Once we placed our order within 15 minutes, there were several people who came to pick up there call in order and there was a line beginning to form by 11 am. It’s a hoppin little place!
When our order was ready and we took it back home. There are several picnic tables outside that are clean to sit and eat. As I said it’s about a 6 minute drive back to the house. Once there I took my burger and fries and laid them on a plate. Steam was rolling up from the french fries they were that hot. Just the way I like them!
If you are ever near KC, I highly recommend that you drive a mere 30 miles (from Legends) west for the best burger this side of the Kaw!
