I did until Runza dropped polish sausage!

Surely you're joking. I've eaten there twice, and it was lousy both times.

Unique food that they say is very healthy for you.

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

Topple 4 years ago

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.

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.


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

I dunno. Pita Pit is quite bad, and La Parilla was probably the worst restaurant experience of my life...tasted like dog food rolled in kitty litter.

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

Grandaddy's BBQ makes me feel high

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

My favorite restaurant is the oldest place in town, and also the cleanest: El Matador. No place else quite like it.

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

They all closed down due to owner burnout.

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

Bob Forer 4 years ago

Agreed. I ate there around six years ago and I will never go back.

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...

I think you are starting to sound like a jinks.

Didn't he go panning for gold after he closed up shop?

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

  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.

The dumpster behind any Arch Club.

When it comes to dumpsters, nothing tops the Refuse Corral behind Bucky's!

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

Agreed. They would have had the same effect by asking "Do you have a preference about stuff in general?"

Mark and the crew there are amazing! Incredibly good food, large portions and a low price. What more can you ask for?

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.
