    Food was awesome! Service was good! 50-50 was hot & the onion rings melted in my mouth. Topped it off with a banana split. It was worth stumbling in there after I couldn't find my meeting last night!!

    Everyone has to try Winstead's while in KC. Go ahead and get a double because the steak burgers are thin. Don't forget the grilled onions! 50/50 fries & rings and a butterscotch malt = happiness.

    I had the crispy chicken sandwich with an order of the fifty-fifty fries and rings (a single tater-tot was thrown in as well). All of which were perfectly crisp. Great, quality food!

    Winstead’s has been a Kansas City staple since 1940. Perfecting the steakburger for generations, Winstead’s serves up flattened patties with crisp crusts of ground steak.

    A true KC icon. Asking for MK (mustard ketchup pre-mixed) sauce with your 50/50 (half fries; half rings). First timers have the one and only Skyscraper shake.

    If you are just looking for a snack, go through the drive through and order the kids cheeseburger and fries with a cherry limeade. Hits the spot every time.

    Don't get the chili cheese dog. I'm sure u can make a better one at home. Maybe then it will actually be hot when u eat it and u can use melted cheese instead of shredded. 😒 BOOOOOOO

    Best diner food in all of the United States! Nothing compares. Go for the grilled cheese on wheat if you're not feeling a burger!

    The onion rings are fantastic. Add hot fudge to your shake or malt, it's worth the 39 cents.

    Make sure to specify that you'd like fresh food , otherwise they will try to give you food from under a heat lamp
