May is National Hamburger Month, and we can think of no better way to celebrate than by paying a visit to your local burger joint. And if you happen to live in the Wichita area, you have plenty of options.
Our real estate agents are always excited to highlight local businesses. With that in mind, if you're looking for the best burger in Wichita, look no further than these five amazing restaurants.
- Dempsey's Burger Pub - 3700 E. Douglas Ave. #78, Wichita, KS 67208
Serving expertly crafted, upscale burgers in an Irish pub setting, Dempsey's Burger Pub brings a chef's flair to the humble hamburger. Their black Angus burgers are grilled any way you want them and then dressed up with toppings ranging from mushrooms and Swiss to bacon and applewood BBQ sauce. They also offer vegan Portobello mushroom burgers and vegetarian Beyond Beef burgers. With two locations in Wichita and one in Lawrence, Dempsey's can always be counted on for a great burger near these Wichita homes for sale.
- TJ's Burger House - 1003 W. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS 67213
If you're not in the mood for an elevated, next-level gourmet burger, you have other options. Namely, you have TJ's Burger House, which makes a strong case for why you don't need to mess with a classic. This place serves up patty melts, onion rings, and other old standbys in an unfussy, diner-like space with booth seating. And while they do offer some tasty burger variations—the Spicy Jack burger is especially tempting—biting into TJ's classic hamburger with lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, mustard, pickles, and onions is about as good as it gets
- Fizz Burgers & Bottles - 7718 E. 37th St. N, Wichita, KS 67226
The folks at Fizz Burgers & Bottles are well aware there's a burger joint on practically every corner in Wichita. But this family-owned establishment stands apart from the crowd by making everything on their menu fresh from scratch, right down to the house-made pickles that top your burger (even the cucumbers used to make those pickles are grown right here in Kansas). It's also worth highlighting the "bottles" side of Fizz Burgers & Bottles, which includes a stunning variety of craft beer and soda.
- Ty's Diner - 928 W. 2nd St. N, Wichita, KS 67203
Not many places can claim to have been making some of Wichita's best burgers for 60-plus years, but Ty's Diner can. Originally established in the 1950s, this classic diner feels stuck in time, in the best possible way. The dining area is centered around a classic lunch counter, with the open kitchen in full view of the customers. The menu includes a handful of staples like tuna melts, chicken sandwiches, and BLTs, but it's clear that this place is all about the burgers. Try the Ultimate Burger, which comes loaded with grilled onions, mushrooms, jalapenos, and bacon.
- Broadway Burgers & BBQ - 1659 S. Broadway, Wichita, KS 67211
You might as well call it "carnivore heaven." At Broadway Burgers & BBQ, there's not much chance you'll walk out the door hungry. Fresh barbecue and burgers are smoked and grilled here every day, and if you can't decide which you prefer, don't worry. Thanks to clever creations like the Brisket Burger (a half-pound cheeseburger patty topped with BBQ brisket), you don't have to choose. This place also has some of the best sides in town, including perfect golden brown French fries and sweet, savory baked beans.
