Lots of teeny tiny burgers make Salina a Cozy place.I blame it on my 5-year-old daughter. She wouldn’t go to bed last night, so I took away her morning cartoon privileges, so I let her listen to the Taylor Swift Pandora station this morning instead, so I apparently MISSED a whole segment on B-98 that was about my story in this morning’s Go! section.
Brett and Tracy’s producer, Kathy, was kind enough to let me know what I missed, which apparently was a loooong addendum to my list of restaurants in towns around Wichita that are worth driving for.
Keep in mind that I’m planning a Part II to the story, since I couldn’t fit everything in the paper today. But B-98 listeners came up with a few I probably won’t be able to fit into the second list either, so I’ll share some of them here.
Cozy Inn, 108 N. Seventh, Salina: The only reason I’m not including Salina’s famous tiny burger hut is because it’s already very well known, sorta like Carriage Crossing in Yoder and Luciano’s in Mulvane.
Never miss a local story.
Bogey's, 1417 S. Ninth St., Salina: Tasty burgers and shakes.
Nieves Mexican Restaurant, 119 E. Nineth, Winfield: Though several people suggested this place, I’m not including it only because I have another tasty Winfield nominee to feature.
Lumber Yard Steak House, 311 N. Main St., Zenda: Is it bad that I’ve never heard of this restaurant or of Zenda? Must change that.
Puffy's Steak House, 215 Main St., Topeka: Topeka has good restaurants?!?!?!?!?!?!
Guy and Mae's Tavern, 119 Williams St., Williamsburg: Home of world-famous ribs and sandwiches
Two Doors Down, 307 Baird St., Cuba: Burgers and other cafe food worth driving for.
Enrique's, 2213 Waverly St., Ponca City, Okla.: Great Mexican food south of the border. The Kansas border.
Thanks, B-98 listeners. Part II will be published on Aug. 13.
