On a business trip flying into Kansas City, I had a little time to kill and decided to see what the burger choices were there. First up, Winstead’s Drive-In, a Kansas City institution since 1940. A classic American hamburger joint.
A simple menu: burgers, sandwiches, sides, fountain drinks and desserts. I got there late in the afternoon and the crowd was diverse. A table full of a high school kids. A business meeting between a man and a woman. A couple sharing a GIANT strawberry shake. Two young women, waiting for their dates. Two older women, catching up.
The burger was very good. But what really set the place apart was the drink.
This single glass bridged the line between drinks and dessert. I could have drank seven – I held to one. Absolutely amazing.
