“Fantastic family run burger joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

Stopped by Unk's because the kids wanted cheeseburgers. We'd never been and try to support local when we can. We were so glad we did! Fabulous family run place. Super friendly staff and the food is fantastic. Definitely going to be our new go-to burger joint.

“Fantastic family owned burger joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

I stopped by to grab a quick bite not knowing anything about Unk's. I was immediately impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the restaurant. The burger and onion rings were amazing. Will be our go-to burger stop from now on.

“Can't believe no one has reviewed Unk's Burgers on TripAdvisor yet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Forget the other burger joints in Lee's Summit.

Unk's is family owned and operated. When you walk in, you instantly feel like you are a part of the family. Don't ever expect to walk into Unk's and be treated like a number. These guys remember your name and what you usually eat.

The burgers are amazing, Jesse's (Unk) own recipe. Don't expect a "gourmet" burger here - the menu is simple and the food is incredible.

Signature sandwich: The Bodacious Bean Burger. Made to order (your choice of veggies and condiments) with "Auntie's Baked Beans" on top. Get a side of rings or sweet potato fries to top it off.

Even if the food were just "meh", the personality of the owner and his family make it worth the trip.
