Smitty's Carry Out - Kingman, Kansas
Following the release of our Best Burgers in Kansas list, several places were recommended to us. We have visited many of those restaurants and although some of them made it onto our list of Unique Kansas Restaurants, Smitty's Carry Out in Kingman was the first of those places to be added to the list.
Smitty's Carry Out serves great burgers. They don't ask how you want them cooked and they all come well done, but they are juicy and flavorful. The hand formed hamburger patties are 1/3 pound and the options are up to a three patty, one pound sandwich. There is no extra charge for grilled onions.
The house made onion rings are nearly as good, but the fresh cut fries needed a little more frying. They do offer several house made sauces and the Kicking Horse went well with the fries.
On our most recent visit, I finally tried the hand breaded pork tenderloin and house made potato chips. The house made chips were quite good, but I wish they had a seasoning option. They do have dips, which I hadn't thought to request, and many customers have with their chips or fries.
The pork tenderloin was fine, but nothing special. Linda had excellent onion rings and a hickory bacon cheese burger. On our way our, we saw chocolate chip cookies from Bighorn Bakery, which the young woman at the counter said were baked by her twin. We got one to split later in the day. The chocolate was my favorite, but the cookie itself was so good that I would definitely get one again.
