Americans love burgers, so many restaurants feel compelled to put a burger on their menu, Thrillist said.
But at times even an $18 chef-driven creation just won't do.
It had this to say about Town Topic: "Yes, the prices on the burgers have increased slightly since Claude Sparks began slinging them for a nickel in 1937. But the taste hasn't. Or, it TASTES like it probably hasn't — we weren't there in 1937. But, the bottom line is you can still get one of the finest renditions of a diner burger in America, 24/7 in downtown Kansas City, for less than four bucks, and we hope that never changes.
Nearly a year ago, Thrillist named Town Topic to its list of eight 'most legendary' Kansas City burgers. Town Topic has two locations, in the Crossroads and one in Mission.
