Best Burger in town – I think this is the best place in town for burgers although the other night I went out of a limb and ordered the Reuben. It was unbelievable. The meat was tender and the bread was grilled to perfection. We happened to be there on a Wednesday which was trivia night. That was fun and people really get into it. Great night -- good food -- cold beer -- doesn't get much better than that.
The burger car rocks!!! – I have been going to the flea for 27 years, they just unvailed a burgr car, this place is awesome. The best meat nad great service, great prices, Tuesdays, two for 1 and sundays after 8pm everything is half off!
Ignore the sour grapes reviewers - still the best burger joint! – Are you people serious? this place has always been our favorite place for juicy burgers and COLD beer. If it's confusing to you to order at the counter and pick it up at the window, maybe you SHOULD be eating at Sonic instead.
The bartenders and waitresses are friendly, witty and fast and the portions are HUGE. We've eaten there for nearly 20 years and when friends or family come in town it's the first place we go. If you want a tiny little dried up burger with a thick french bread bun and brie cheese, go to Paris. this place serves stick-to-your-ribs food. If you come in there more than once they remember you and take good care of you. Its a neighborhood kinda place.
To the person who says they're trying to squeeze more $ out of you, well, what business isn't? I dont mind paying a little extra for little extras. and they have a great happy hour and the chicken fried steak on Wed nite is to die for.
This is still the best burger in KC and the atmosphere is what it's always been. We love it and recommend it.
Just avoid – A place you have to be instructed on how it works -all seems geared to get a little more money out of you- while serving you greasy low-quality food. May be good for kids (if you don't mind your kids eating junk) because the place is such junk its like who cares about anything- plus you have to leave them at the table when you go order food. I lost an extra $6.00 because they didn't take credit cards and I used there ATM. Then if you are good natured you still have to leave a tip for the waitress because she brought you some water and asked you if everything was alright. Unclear language on the menu made it so I ordered an extra side and had to get my money back after I realized it. Paid $4.00 for six cheap small greasy onion rings and we could only eat 4 altogether so they were a buck a piece. I Have went here about twice a year for years but will never go again. I could have paid half as much and got twice as much of similar quality at Sonic across the street. I'm not some cheapskate but try to keep it cheap sometimes and like to feel like I got my money's worth- Hard to do here. Pluses include shuffle board and pool table, pinball machines. Go there for that and maybe drinks only.
Not the same place!!! – I stopped by there last week and wanted to order a burger to go. When I found out they were going to charge me an additional .50 ($8.49) for the burger and .25 (.75) for cheese I was a bit upset. I mean really. I had never heard of being charged extra for a to go order. And, nowhere does it say that on the menu. When I got my burger it looked decent but had that large frozen patty look to it. And the cheese was this tiny little square. It wasn't really very tastey either. Do yourself a favor and go someplace else. Maybe it should have become an Ooters a few years back because this place has gone downhill in a big way.
Best Hamburger, BS – I don't know what the big fuss is about Westport Flea Market hamburgers. I am a Hamburger Freak! I could eat Hamburgers 7 days a week! Believe me, I KNOW what makes a good hamburger! Every burger I've had at WFM has taken a VERY long time to get to the table (30-40 minutes). The BUN falls apart before the 3rd or 4th bite. The meat is stale, like its been frozen too long. The price is very HIGH for a burger, about $10. The best part of the meal is the french fries. In my opinion, the long wait, the poor quality product & the fact that the WFM is more of a BAR, than a Restaurant - I'd rather eat at Wendy's or Hardee's. Maybe if your DRUNK the WFM Hamburger tastes better & is a better deal?! I have NEVER had even an ok Hamburger there & I'd fight the option of going there again, If I have to I'll order some other sandwich. As far as the Best Hamburger awards go, the reviewers must have been DRUNK, or have NO CLUE what a good hamburger IS! There are KC Icons: Gates & Sons BBQ, Arthur Bryants BBQ, Strouds, Fun House Pizza, Tailgating at Arrowhead, Etc. - I'd be EMBARRASED to take anyone to WFM. I'd say it came from St. Louis. I've cooked MUCH better hamburgers at home on a grill.
Excellent Burgers! – This place is a KC classic! The burgers are awesome and the atmosphere is just plain funky! Stop at the ATM before coming in because they only accept cash and your drinks are paid for thru the waitress. Well worth the stop!
The OK Burger – The burger was good but not the best. I shear size surely entices you but...it was rather plain. the bun was tasteless. however the juicy patty made up for it. but i give it 2 thumbs up.
True Westport eatery – The Flea Market is casual dining at it's best! The service is friendly, atmostphere interesting, and food is OUTSTANDING! Like so many local favorites, The Flea Market caters to Westport's off-beat bohemians as well as the Johnson County crowd. Don't be surprised to see a blue mohawk or more than a few piercings next to the khakis and polos. This is a family-friendly establishment, but there is an age restriction at night (Maybe 9 or 10pm). After all, it does have a full bar with an excellent selection of speciality beers and it is in Westport, KC's place to be for fun!
Best Burger Ever!!!! – I have just moved to KC and was told if i wanted a great burger, try the Westport Flea Market.
I came in last sat and the place was packed, kids playing pinball, couples drinking beers, and just alot of people having a great time. I tried the Flea burger and realized why it has soooo many awards!
Best Burger i have ever had, lived in New York, LA and Denver, this was #1 with a bullet. By the way great staff, very friendly and told me about the Trivia nights on Wed and thurday and live bands on Sunday, Kudos to the guy who saved this institution.
