If you want that old time burger with the scent-memory of “the smell” it’s at Lankfords! It’s a converted garage with warped floors hole-in-the-wall. Lines move but bring cash! Enter and sit anywhere. A fav of mine when I want a burger.

This place may be a dive, but don't let the looks fool you - the food is very good and the service very personable and friendly. I had the Lonestar Tostadas while my wife enjoyed the special Chicken Hash Browns. The tostadas were incredibly flavorful...More

Dad used to go to Lankford Grocery as a boy. I am able to enjoy it as a diner. Highly recommend burgers 🍔 however, daily lunch specials on specific days serving enchiladas or chicken fried steak or pork chops. *Parking is crazy - but worth...More
