Like fairies, hamburgers are difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Capture them in a different way with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of steakburgers, shakes, and more at Winstead’s. This Groupon is valid at any of the nine Winstead’s locations in the Kansas City area.
For 70 years, Winstead’s has garnered a myriad of accolades and praise for its scrumptious hamburgers and other drive-in eats. Poke through the menu to find the joint’s signature Double Winstead steakburger, grilled with U.S. Choice Steak and topped with all the sloppy-tasty fixings––mustard, ketchup, pickle, and onion ($3.35). The Fifty-Fifty puts hot and crisp french fries and crunchy onion rings side by side in the most delicious peace pact since ketchup and mustard ended their hot-dog feud ($2.19). Scarf a chili cheese dog ($2.79) or grilled-cheese sandwich ($2.05), and then focus on Winstead’s old-fashioned desserts. Creamy milk shakes and malts ($2.45–$4.55) immerse taste buds in flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, banana, and butterscotch, and Winstead’s beloved skyscraper shake ($7.25) packs enough iced delight to quench the thirsts of four people or one André the Giant. Other desserts include a root-beer float ($2.45) and apple-dumpling à la mode ($4.60).
Winstead's has been featured in the Kansas City Lunch Spots blog. Yelpers give the Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard Location a four-star average, and 84% of more than 120 Urbanspooners like the original Country Club Plaza location.
- It just isn't a trip to Kansas City without a stop to Winstead's for a steak burger with everything, the 50/50 (onion rings and fries, ya idiot), a limeade and, if you're brave, the skyscraper shake. - Quinn A., Yelp
- Winstead's is amazing. One of my very favorite places to eat lunch with my husband. The morning after our wedding, we woke up at the Raphael on the Plaza and couldn't wait to share our first meal as a married couple. Out of the many fine places to choose from on the Plaza, we both looked at each other and said, "I'd really rather have Winstead's!" – K., Urbanspoon
