Ty's Diner in Wichita, Kansas isn't a diner, but a 60+ year old hamburger joint. The kind of burger joint where people often wait in line much of the few hours Ty's is open each day. But the wait is rarely more than 15 minutes.

Ty's was opened in the early 1950s by Kenny Tyson. Richard A. Diamond purchased Ty's in 1999, but Richard was careful not to change the things that had made Ty's Diner a success. In 2012, long time employees, Dave and Kristen Hale purchased Ty's and continue to operate the restaurant today.

The menu is simple: hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken strips, chicken fried steak, pork tenderloin and a half dozen other sandwiches.  The hamburgers are hand formed from ground beef that is delivered each morning and the French fries are cut fresh each day.

The burgers can be ordered with extra toppings such as jalapenos, ham bacon, grilled onions. Ty's Diner has Chili in the winter. It is a slightly watery, sweet chili with beans.

Ty's hamburgers and French fries are very good. The fries come in a family size full basket for $4.89 a generous half basket for $3.19 or a quarter basket for $2.59. The pork tenderloin and onion rings are above average.

There is plenty of atmosphere. Actually there was too much atmosphere. After my first visit, I could smell the place in our clothes and hair for most of the rest of the day.
