One lunch on Topeka

The day after our 10k walk in Lincoln, we’ll do another in Topeka, so we’re looking for a good place for lunch there.



I’d head to Lawrence, 20 miles east.

Any place in particular in Lawrence?

Well, we’re back. We were only on the road for three nights, and only in KC about 36 hours. Here are the results.
Porky Butts in Omaha was good KC-style meats, especially the wagyu brisket, and the burnt ends (under the tongs) were good, despite the sweet glaze…

and the fries with the pork sandwich were excellent

A pork sandwich from a Topeka food truck was okay

In Kansas City, we had a good KC-style dinner at Jack Stack, which is a pretty upscale setting, but not really expensive.


Had I only waited. I probably would have frozen, but chili would hit the spot

Porubsky’s was a Roadfood staple, a place Jane and Michael discovered many moons ago.
Also famous for their incendiary horseradish pickles.

The horseradish pickles sound interesting, and the idea of eating them with chili is attractive. I usually eat sour pickles (ot half sour) with chili, and I’m a big horseradish fan. pounded an assertive pickle to stand up to chili.
