Kansas City lost a broadcasting legend this weekend when Walt Bodine passed away at the age of 92. It was always a good day when Walt graced Town Topic with his
presence. He was always so friendly and had wonderful stories to tell. Walt
loved Kansas City, and Kansas City loved him in return. Condolences to his
March Madness has begun! Take a break from the NCAA madness by stepping back in time at Town Topic Hamburgers. Have a seat at one of the historic counters at 20th
& Broadway or 19th & Baltimore in Kansas City. Here’s a picture on
opening day in 1937 at the very first TT at 24th & Broadway. That’s founder
Claude Sparks behind the counter.
Folks, it’s gonna be a busy week here in KC! Whether you’re downtown at the Big 12 Tournament, NAIA, St. Patty’s Day Parade or Pub Crawl, be sure to stop in at Town Topic for a made-to-order burger or Truckstop Omelet. We’ve got two locations right next to each other, so there’s no excuse! 19th and Baltimore or our 24-hour location at 20th and Broadway. See ya there!

The good old days – when you could get a Town Topic Hamburger for 10 cents! Here’s owner Claude Sparks at the 2021 Broadway location in Kansas City, Missouri in 1945. The restaurant is still there today!
Warm up with a bowl of piping hot chili at Town Topic!
