Lawrence’s The Burger Stand at the Casbah has made a national list of the nation’s top places for burgers.
Zagat Survey’s new list of “The Best Burgers in 25 Cities” had these customer comments for the Burger Stand — “outstanding” gourmet burgers and the “best” sides — “you can’t beat the truffle or duck-fat fries.” The atmosphere is “bustling” and “feels vital without being obnoxious.”
The Burger Stand started as an Irish pub in early 2009 and later relocated to the Casbah at 803 Massachusetts. In mid-2011 it opened a Topeka location near Washburn University.
