Burger Boy 605 N.E. 291 Highway, Lee's Summit · 816-525-4700
The stretch of highway just east of old-town Lee's Summit would be a carbon copy of every other bypass in America were it not for Burger Boy -- the rare fast-food joint that breaks the chains. There's only one Burger Boy in the entire world. And eating there isn't just a sentimental tour through mediocrity. Burger Boy's food is actually superior to the corporate power hogs' -- crispy fries and tater tots, juicy burgers and a spectrum of malt and shake flavors. The décor is clean, the service is fast, and best of all, you're handing your dough over to a neighbor.
