Often times, I’ll get recommendations that I have to make a small drive outside of town to try a restaurant. I gave in after a pouring of support came in through emails and messages for Boudreux Burger Barn. Located in Peck, KS, its about six miles south of Haysville and felt much closer of a drive once we arrived.

If it’s any restaurant that had a hometown feel, it was Boudreux Burger Barn. Everybody there seemed to know each other; regulars would all sit together. About 10 minutes after we arrived, the place started to fill up quick for dinner.
The mom-and pop shop had items like burgers, hand-cut fries, chicken strips, chicken fried steak, homemade ice cream and more. We ended up ordering a cheeseburger with tots and a double hamburger with fries. For safe measure, we ordered two cups of their homemade ice cream. They were just a dollar a piece so I felt like we were losing money not ordering them.
It did not take long at all for our orders to arrived. I quickly started on the fries…..they were phenomenal! I loved the texture of them, they were crisp with a slight bit of sogginess to them that made it perfect for grabbing handfuls at a time to stuff my face. The salt levels were spot on and did not need any ketchup at all.
For the main feature, we both noticed they weren’t your humongous juicy burger patty if that’s what you’re looking for. The burgers were very reminiscent of Freddy’s steakburgers in terms of flavor and how well done they were. The patties had similar texture, flavor and appearance with Boudreux’ being slightly thicker.
Our thoughts? We weren’t overly amazed by them as some readers were. For the portion size compared to the cost, it was a great value. Were they good? Yes. It’s just that the burgers didn’t leave any memorable mark on our taste buds. Freddy’s has a massive fanbase and if you really enjoy Freddy’s, Boudreux Burger Barn isn’t too far off base from what they offer in terms of a burger.
We grabbed our homemade ice creams to end our meal. The options were vanilla or vanilla with any type of syrup over the top like chocolate as seen below. It reminded me of the homemade ice cream found at the Kansas State Fair. That I would easily get again.
For the service, it was what you’d expect from a small town restaurant. Everything came with a smile. The people were all very nice and tables were cleaned off quickly. As mentioned earlier, the prices are very affordable. $6.50 for a cheeseburger, drink and fries is a steal compared to most places these days.
And since burgers are so subjective, I’ll leave it up for you to decide whether you like it or not. People’s preference in burgers are immensely different so give this one a shot and see what you think.
Here’s their menu:
