From the Venue:
On September 8th, 2011, we expanded to a second location in Topeka – the Capitol 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, Foosball Table, a pinball machine and digital bar gaming. The Pong Bar is also available for private rental.
The Burger Stand is across the way from Washburn University and you’ll find a combination of locals and students here. They’ve got excellent food and plenty to keep you entertained.
I’ve never been disappointed here. I’ll frequently get one of their seasonal specials but, barring that, the Black and Blue is a favorite. They’re one of the few places in Kansas where you can get the vegan Impossible Burger and they’ve got an excellent beer selection. If you’re a fry person, their selection is impressive. Regular fries, duck fat fries, truffle fries, poutine, sweet potato fries, etc. Don’t miss the selection of house-made dipping sauces. I always go for the chipotle-cocoa ketchup.
