The best food comes from my own kitchen because I know what is in it. If I want a piece of cake and make from scratch, I know what is in it. I also know it was cooked. Better than going to eat and then finding out they hung the meat outside to thaw. Also I know that I am not eating cat or dog. I grew up on a farm, and no food has ever matched the quality of food my grandmother cooked (may she rest in piece) even my mother who is a trained dietian.

Pachamamas, everywhere else service is spotty, Free state is a runner up.

MOJO's when I lived there. Too bad it is closed. Johnny's is awesome and so is Pyamid Pizza.

Raney's cafe or woolworth's, they made the best burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches!

  1. Free State: best beer, avocado chimichurri is delightful
  2. Saigon Cafe: best pho
  3. Wheatfields: best sandwiches
  4. Thai Siam: best pad thai
  5. Mirth: best pancakes

So many to choose from (715, Mad Greek, Miltons, Ingredient, Papa Kenos all rate), but these are my top 5.

My favorite restaurants are not in Lawrence; however, my favorite Lawrence restaurants are 715 and Free State.

You are thinking of The Red Lyon. I never like being abused and pay for it. or even for free. That guy was a hit w/KU students but I thought he was a Jerk. MHRIP

Don's Steak House. Oops, that's closed. Paradise Cafe. Oh yeah, that's gone, too. Harry's Bear? Long gone. Joe's? Gone. Sigh...

They all closed down due to owner burnout.

Can't believe so many like Mad Greek; that place is so mediocre.

El Potro. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out.

Amble on north across the bridge & mosey over to El Matador. Take your time, do it slow & proper & savor every bite.

None of my favorites are in Lawrence. Restaurants in Lawrence are rather dull.

Alladan has a better gyro sandwich than the Mad Greek. It is larger and costs less. But nothing at all wrong with the Mad Greek.

Chipolte on 6th has to in the running for at least fast food.

Rudys also has to be mentioned.

Worst

Tortilias Jaliscos hands down. (Takes a bunch to beat out Burrito King for this honor.)

Mad Greek is up there. I'm a fan of Johnny's across the bridge.

Silas and Madys for ice cream.

I actually used to be a fan of El Mezcal on 23rd until the health department report saying the top two worst health code offenders in Lawrence were both El Mezcal. Haven't eaten there since, and never will again.

I Love Set'em Up Jacks. But I would be happy to go to Mad Greek anytime.
