Good friend of mine , Navy Vet, and all around great guy opened up a small cafe in KCK on 14th and Minnesota named "Johnny Jukes." Please allow me to shamelessly promote my buddies place. Johnny`s serves the best burgers in town, home cut fries (cut right in-front of you) and get this...KOOL AID! lol.

Johnny`s has a lunch, breakfast, and dinner menu . His specialty item is his hand patted half pound burger, served with home cut fries, but he also makes a damn good home made chicken sausage, chicken and waffles, and other tasty items! If you happen to find yourself near Johnny's It`s worth a stop.

Big Boy Burger is AMAZING - I lived off Truman and Blue Ridge in Cimarron/Stone Arch apts for about 6 months until I realized every was cooking meth or crack...

Wasn't there very long, but I totally ate the fuck out of some Big Boy steakburgers.

Another good burger in town most people don't know about is Hi-Boy - there's one across from the stadium, by Sports Nutz....just figured I'd throw that one out there in case no one had heard about it.

There's three Hi-Boys in Independence. 40 and Blue Ridge, MO Hwy 291 and Gudgell, and US 24 and River.

There's also another great burger joint on US 40 about a half mile east of the Blue Ridge Wal Mart called Big Boy Burger. Been there since early 1960's. They also have big tasty burgers and onion rings that won't break your teeth.

Wasn't Big Boy Burger some kind of regional chain (or, more likely, franchise operation) back in the 1960's? For example, I remember a couple of "Kips Big Boy" restaurants back then in Wichita. Not sure if it's the same thing or not, but it seemed like the name "Big Boy" was a pretty popular destination back in the day.

I grew up on Hi-Boy. I live close to the one on 24 Highway and River. There's an old school location just North of Arrowhead on Blue Ridge, just north of 40 Highway.

I used to love their burgers, but as I got older, they got a little too greasy and didn't sit well in my stomach. Still love their Italian Steak sandwiches. Also, their onion rings used to be my favorite, but over the years I cracked not one, but two molars on their onion rings, so I quit eating them too.

Their Chocolate Shake is unbelievable.

Next time you go to Arrowhead, go in there for food for your tailgate. They open early on Sunday game days.

I'm a pretty classic burger kinda guy. I don't like those burgers with a bunch of stuff mixed into the patty - eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, etc. That's meatloaf. A burger should be meat, salt, and pepper.

But this recipe from James Beard is intriguing.

Blog post: http://www.tastingtable.com/entry_detail/national/17351/How_to_Make_Burgers_Like_James_Beard.htm

If anybody remembers Wylie's (I think they had two or three locations in the 80s and 90s), the owners have a BBQ joint and they offer "The Wylie." You get the burger and a side for $6.99 and it's a really good burger.

Have never had a better burger than one with just salt pepper and a slice of cheese. Why anyone needs more I have no idea.

If you have never had the cheese burger from Pigwich, go now.

Can confirm this is the real deal.

Wylie's was awesome!

What a horrible site though – it's impossible to tell where this restaurant is.

It just closed. It's being replaced by a restaurant called Pegah's? They serve food that looks like this. I think this is their third location. Ugh!

I'd go Beer Kitchen and get the Smokestack or the Bravo.

Had the Smokestack over the weekend there......AMAZING!!! And the truffle/Parmesan fries. FANTASTIC!

Yeah, that burger is a beast. I might get it like once a year as part of something celebratory.

Not on Beer Kitchen's level, but Twin City Tavern puts out an above average bar burger. All they food is above average to really good actually.

Twin City Tavern was a place I used as a sponsor bar for a co-ed flag football league I used to run years ago. We played on Monday nights and they would keep the kitchen open late as usually would bring in 30-40 people. Great place!

They are great people. The kind of place where a shot of Jameson comes in a lowball glass. The kind of place that legitimately thought they were going to have close their doors when KC passed the smoking ban. I had forgotten how late that kitchen stayed open, they could go in the KC late night eats thread.
