Our Story

The Burger Stand got its start in an Irish pub kitchen in 2009. since relocating to the Casbah at 803 Massachusetts in historic Downtown Lawrence and expanding to Topeka in 2011, The Burger Stand has a large menu of gourmet burgers, hawt doggz, a large vegetarian menu and so many sides (fries galore!) and a free sauce bar. Our bar menus specialize in classic, American cocktails as well as carefully curated craft beers on tap and over 100 bottles. Each location offers larger private rooms available for reservations.

The Burger Stand at College Hill

On September 8th, 2011, we expanded to a second location in Topeka - the Capital City of Kansas! Located near Washburn University at 1601 SW Lane St., The Burger Stand at College Hill features the same gourmet burgers and beers that Lawrence has come to love! The Topeka location features outdoor patio seating, seating for over 150, and two fully stocked bars - one of which is in the back dining area referred to as "The Pong Bar". The Pong Bar offers Ping Pong Tables, Pool Tables, and more. The Pong Bar is also available for private rental.
