Town Topic: Four Decades of Delicious on Broadway

 
Town Topic Hamburgers - Kasim Hardaway

There is a debate in every city that centers around where to get the best burgers, or the best pie, or the best shakes.

Kansas City is no different, and this is not the lede to a top-5 list either. This is just a friendly reminder that there is one place in KC that has been serving all of those items for more than 80 years.

Town-Topic Hamburgers has been serving classic diner food in the Crossroads District since 1937. Home to a full menu of breakfast favorites, hearty chili and famous shakes — day or night.

The all-time Town Topic classic — the Single Cheeseburger.

End your meal with a slice of pie! The chocolate pie may be my fave.

However, the reason an empty seat is hard to find at Town Topic is due to their hamburgers. Town Topic is truly a KC landmark, and if you are making a list of places to, try this must be on it. There are three locations across the metro, but only the original location at 2021 Broadway is open 24/7. The other two typically close after the lunch rush.

If you have been, what is your favorite order? I go pork tenderloin with hashbrowns (and the occasional slice of pie), but am always curious to know if there is a better order out there.
