Unveiling the 32 Restaurants for Wichita’s Most Liked Burger II Tournament


Five years ago, we hosted the first Wichita’s Most Liked Burger tournament. During that run, we included multiple Wichita area restaurants including Big Larry’s Burgers, Timbuktu Bar & Grill as well as Louis Rose Hill Cafe who won it all.

Since the original burger bracket, so many restaurants have closed, including Bomber Burger, Jack’s Coffee Shop, Mr. Bud’s Brothers, Walt’s Klassic, among others.

It’s time to run it back with some changes and newer restaurants.

For Wichita’s Most Liked Burger II, we’ve implemented the following changes to the 32 places who will be participating.

  • We are keeping this to locally owned establishments
  • Restaurants that can only be found in Wichita
    • If a location is outside the Wichita city limits, they were excluded. The only way to get one of these 32 burger places is by coming to Wichita.
  • Burgers have to be on the menu year round
  • Once again because I know it’ll be mentioned a thousand times, the focus is strictly to Wichita

This is the latest edition of our Most Liked Series which has covered tacos, BBQ, pizza, and donuts.

A tournament bracket featuring a whopping 32 restaurants strictly for Wichita. As I mentioned earlier, this does not include any establishments that can be found in Derby, Lawrence, Valley Center, Haysville, etc.

The point of this whole bracket is three-fold:

  • Introduce you all to the number of options many of you may have never heard of.
  • Use this platform of Wichita By E.B. to help give some exposure to places that rarely get love elsewhere.
  • Have a little fun in the name of burger.

REMEMBER, the results of this post don’t necessarily mean they are the best burger, but more of which place has the most online support, thus Most Liked. Like all votes, it’s really just a popularity contest, but one I hope you can all have fun with. This all comes down to social media support on Facebook, where the voting will be held. In the end, I hope you can find some new burger options you may have never heard of or tried! And just like the previous bracket, I will not be voting in any bracket. This will be left strictly to the general audience.

I do have ONE REQUEST. When you vote, ask yourself if you’re voting for what you truly feel is the BEST BURGER, or if you’re just voting to support said place based on other reasons. It’s up to you what criteria you consider for the best burger; this isn’t rocket science. Just have some fun. Obviously, there is no way to regulate it, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

Starting Tuesday night, you will find a poll featuring matchups on the Wichita By E.B. Facebook page to vote for your favorite.

So with that said, here’s the unveiling of the bracket.
