There was a big White Castle-inspired hamburger stand boom across America in the early 1920s, and Salina, Kan.' Cozy Inn is one of the last ones standing. Started as a six-seat counter in 1922, it gained local popularity for serving 1-ounce burgers griddled with chopped onions that came to be known as sliders, and to this day the grillmen are still doing it the old-fashioned way, in the same tiny room, with fluffy white buns made especially for them. A few things to know before going: you’ll want yours "all the way," with ketchup, mustard, a pickle, and onions. Don’t ask for it without onions; don’t ask for it with cheese; don’t ask for fries (just grab a bag of chips). Ask for a sack and you’ll get six; expect to leave smelling like onions. -Dan Myers


  • Best burgers in North Central KS! Classic. Featured in Diners, Dives, and Drive-Ins.
  • As a Salina native, I can vouch that this is the most redeemable aspect of Salina. Always order one more than you think you'll eat. Best sliders in the country.
  • One of 8 wonders of ks
  • Try the Sliders -
  • Best hamburger in Kansas! Not even close
  • Onions are not optional.
  • What else can I say, except these are the best burgers ever. Been coming here since my college days in the 80s and I stop by any time Im close. Just the onion smell from blocks away is heaven.
  • The burger. What else?
  • Love, love, love!!! Grandpa used to get mad if we went to the Cozy without bringing him some. No getting away with it--he could smell it on us. Haha!
  • The burgers
  • Buy 'em by the dozen.
  • Order the burgers just as they are! Fabulous flavor and easy take out!
  • Burger sliders are wonderful. I suggest you order the doubles, 2 small patties and grilled onions on a single bun. Less bum more good meat.
  • The Cozy Burger
  • Best burger joint in Kansas, famous for their sliders. It was nice sitting in the tiny kitchen area at the bar but if you do, be prepared for your clothes to smell like onions for awhile. Great place
  • It's all good. And the atmosphere is awesome. The customer service amazing.
  • Great mini burgers and service!
