Dempsey's Burger Pub
Really good burgers except our waitress was way too busy flirting with a bunch of guys at another table. I think she took our order and never returned after that. It was kind of disappointing but I will definitely be returning because the food was great.
Best burgers in Lawrence!!!!! The burger is always juicy and cooked to perfection. The truffle fries as well as the (salty) sweet potato are amazing and the sauces, GREAT! I always forget the name of the pink spicy sauce but that is my fav. The staff is always so nice and helpful because Morgan sets the bar so high. I was meeting a special lady friend who only chomps on veggies there one night and asked an employee what would be good. They had a special of collard greens with raisins and nuts with a great sauce and he recommended it. Well, he was the head chef and was kind enough to bring out a plate of them (free of charge, thanks again) for her to try and it was very good. They have killer beer specials (all pints $3 on Wed/Sat) and the selection is great (a $3 Tank7). I have watched many-a-games there and the atmosphere there is always energetic! Thank you and keep up the great work!!!!
The burger wars in Lawrence are on, but Dempsey's stands out as the true winner!!! Burgers, fries, salads, ambience, pricing, drink selection......every aspect blows away the competition! They have a weekly special that changes every Friday representing some of the best burgers in town, but the Egg Burger is still a favorite mainstay. My only complaint is the counter service. I wish it were full-service, but for all the other positives I can overlook this. If the owner reads this, I would love a chicken offering added to the regular full-time menu. Your place rocks!!
Went to Dempsey's for lunch Tuesday, first time I'd been there after hearing good reviews. I definitely have to add mine, great burger, had the house fries and they were great! Basket lunch deal makes it a much better lunch than McD's, for about the same price, I will definitely be back!
Okay, I've completed the downtown burger circuit challenge. Dempsey's wins on all fronts: menu concept, ease of ordering, execution of burger (because when I say mid rare, I mean mid rare, damn it!), pricing (I know you're walking a line there, and as a big-ish family, we appreciate you tilting the scale our way), and sauces, sauces, sauces! Next time I may just go ahead and purchase a gallon of sweet chili aioli to use as bubble bath...I wanna smell like that! Well done, fellas! You've now earned the illustrious title of "what we mean when we say we're going out for a burger."
The chef at Dempsey's is very talented and I would like to applaud his sustainable cooking concept. The local farmers produce and beef are all fantastic. The Egg Burger is my favorite and all the sauces and hand cut fries are amazing. Keep up the good work and keep the best burger's in Lawrence coming.
