GREAT history, but you didn't mention the location they had in Lee's Summit, MO, in the '50s. It was sold in 1956 or so and became Johnny Ray's Drive-In. It was the hang-out for all the high school kids back then.

Thanks for such an informative history!

I'm wondering if you can provide some sources for your information? I'm in the process of writing a paper and sources would be very helpful for credible. Thanks very much.

I HAVE MADE FREQUENT VISITER TO WINSTEADS ON BARRY RD. I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE PLACE IS ALWAYS CLEAN AND THE FOOD IS GOOD. THE HELP IS GOOD AS WELL.

HOWEVER, THE PARKING LOT IS FULL OF CHUCKHOLES. NUMEROUS CALLS RE: THIS ARE NEVER RETURNED. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM.

Winstead's IS and has been a Singular Pinnacle of "Burger Heaven" in Kansas City for my entire 64.5 years of life.
There have been others that, in there own niche, were Superior Points to reckon on your compass of "Burger Life"...
NU-WAY had the crumbly-burger cornered... (Sorry Maid-Rite... You Just Didn't have the same quality as NU-WAY...There was none better.
Then there was the MUG's UP ZIP-Burger that was "semi-crumbly" with a special sauce that slightly held the contents inside the Steamed Bun together. Plus, you just couldn't beat the frosty (inch-thick glass MUG) that the root beer was served in... It almost stuck to your little fingers, it was so cold---and tasted so good.
These were the days ((just before)) the mega-chains came in with 15ยข "almost-a-burger" that swept away some of the riff-raff from the GOOD PLACES.

Can anyone tell me where the Winsteads was in North Kansas City, Mo. I've been told that it did not look like the classic Winsteads restaurants. It was there probably in the 1960s. Trying to settle a minor disagreement. Thanks.
