In 1937 Claude Sparks opened a little white diner at 2442 1/2 Broadway in downtown Kansas City and began selling hamburgers for 5 cents each. 75 years later Town Topic Hamburgers has established itself as an iconic piece of Kansas City history. Come in and experience the great food and atmosphere that is the same today as it was back then at this authentic American diner. Our location that is Open 24 hours-7 days a week is in Downtown Kansas City in the Crossroads Arts District at 20th & Broadway. You can also visit our other two locations for breakfast and lunch at 1900 Baltimore, downtown and 6018 Johnson Dr in Mission Ks.

Products And Services

Well, it’s 75 years later, and Town Topic is still selling hamburgers by the bagful. We still cook ‘em the same way with grilled onions and a steamed bun. In fact, the downtown diners haven’t changed a whole lot since the early days. Stop in sometime and take your place at the historic counter. Have an old-fashioned hamburger & hand-dipped malt, steamy homemade chili, fresh breakfast, a piece of pie & coffee or an ice cold Coca-Cola all prepared right in front of you. There are many regular customers who have frequented the establishments for years, and they all have great stories to tell about this wonderful city we call home – just ask them. At Town Topic Hamburgers you can step back in time, if only for a little while.
