Normally the best falafel I’ve ever had. This time, it was dry and hard, but I’m going to say it was an off day. Everything else is reliably fantastic. More

Discover Lawrence

The Midwestern charm of Lawrence is evident in every street and building of this college town. As a place anchored in a time gone by, the local food is as homey and traditional. You can enjoy homestyle cooking at the local diners or a cold beer in the local dive bars. During the college hoops season, local University of Kansas fans populate the diners. While American fare is popular, the city is no stranger to international cuisine. You can find a variety of foods from all over the world. It's a great place to experience the beauty of slow cooking in the Midwest while keeping an eye on the future.
