AMIE JUST | @Amie_Just

ou voted for your favorites, and the results are


in. The University Daily
Kansans Top of the Hill
is back.
Everyone who knows me knows Im addicted to the Bill Self pasta at 23rd Street
Brewery, Maddys Mud ice cream from
Sylas & Maddys and the Classic burger
from Dempseys. In my spare time, Im in
Anschutz or Allen Fieldhouse.
We all have our favorite places, foods,
beverages, stores, etc., and Top of the Hill
showcases our collective favorites.
This years voting was conducted online
on the Kansans website over several
weeks in order to ensure fairness among
the voting.
Were college students. We love food,
cheap food, expensive food, whatever
food we can get our hands on. Some of
us love coffee. Some of us like slushies.
Others prefer alcohol. Plenty of us have a
sweet tooth. We like shopping, especially
on Massachusetts Street. We love our
campus.
The results reflect what you, the readers
of the Kansan, value as your favorite.
Theres a reason why The Burger Stand
and Sylas & Maddys took home two
awards each.
Throughout this section, youll find
the top three winners in 27 categories,
ranging from the best food dish to the
best specialty store. Various winners
have blurbs stating why they won and
interesting facts about them.
If you havent been to any of the places
that won Top of the Hill Awards, check
them out. You might find a new favorite.

BEST LOCAL BAR: Sandbar

Sandbar
Why it won:
With its combination of tropical drinks and
throwback music (with current hits mixed in), the
Sandbar is the only bar of its kind in Lawrence. It
offers a selection of drinks you cant get anywhere
else, including its most famous, the Shark Attack,
which is described as a limeade with a twist. Each
tropical drink comes with a Mardi Gras necklace
and a carnival toy.

BEST DISH: Truffle fries at The Burger Stand


Why it won:
Tossed in truffle butter and parmesan cheese, The Burger Stands truffle fries are a
Lawrence staple. They come served with a smorgasbord of dipping sauces if eating them
plain isnt your fancy. If youre worried about the fries not pairing well with your burger
or hot dog, rest easy. The truffle fries complement all of The Burger Stands entrees.

WE HAVE LAWRENCE COVERED

BEST BURGER: The Burger Stand


Why it won:
Offering seven types of burgers, ranging from the Classic to the Barnyard Bash, The
Burger Stand has a savory burger for everyone. The Burger Stand offers Kobe beef upgrades, as well, for those who like a leaner meat. Unlike fast-food joints, each burger is
cooked to order and served with fresh greens.

BEST ON-CAMPUS FOOD: Chick-fil-A


Why it won:
Chick-fil-A takes this category as the Universitys one-stop shop for down-home Southern cooking. Located in The Underground at Wescoe Hall, Chick-fil-A offers a simple,
straightforward menu of Southern-style fried chicken strips, sandwiches, nuggets and
more fried goodness.

TOP RATED MANAGEMENT COMPANY

with 9 locations around town

Interesting facts:
S. Truett Cathy, a devout Southern Baptist, founded Chick-fil-A in Atlanta, Ga., in 1946.
Chick-fil-A locations are not open Sundays, which is just fine with us since we dont
have class Sundays.
Chick-fil-A was the first fast-food restaurant to adopt a trans-fat free cooking model.
Rumor has it that a full Chick-fil-A location will open in Lawrence in the near future.

BEST BREAKFAST: The Roost


Why it won:
The Roost is a haven for brunch lovers. If youre in the mood for something savory and
comforting, the biscuits and gravy taste like theyre straight from grandmas kitchen.
Something a little more on the adventurous side is the Smoked Salmon Benny you
wont be let down with its perfect combination of salty smoked salmon and sweet hollandaise sauce. The Rooster is one of its most popular dishes, offering diners the choice of
French toast, pancakes or potato pancakes, two eggs and either bacon or sausage. Open
from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, with lunch starting at 11 a.m., The Roost is guaranteed to have
something you can devour. And for those of you who like to accompany your meal with a
drink, there are cocktails, bloody marys and wine also available.

BEST DESSERT + BEST FOOD SPECIAL: Sylas & Maddys

Sylas & Maddys


Why it won:
Sylas & Maddys offers dozens of unique flavors
and combinations, like Maddys Mud and Rock
Chocolate Jayhawk. Unlike chains, Sylas & Maddys
makes its ice cream and waffle cones fresh daily,
so once its out, its out for the day. The shop offers
more than just ice cream cones. At Sylas & Maddys,
there are sundaes, shakes and malts, as well. And
you can take home pints and quarts of your favorite
flavors. The BOGO special on Tuesdays gives college
students the chance to take a friend to splurge while
saving on their favorite treats.

BEST SPECIALTY STORE: Mass Street Soda

Mass Street Soda


Why it won:
Take a step back in time to when sodas came in
glass bottles instead of aluminum cans and plastic
bottles. Thats what youll find when you walk into
Mass Street Soda, though there are few canned
beverages. More than 1,300 types of beverages, from
orange creme sodas to Surge, are lined wall-to-wall.
If a customer comes in and buys one soda every day,
it will take them three or four years to try each one.

BEST LIBRARY: Anschutz

Anschutz
Why it won:
Anschutzs prime location on campus, extended
hours and number of places to study are a few of
the reasons why students choose it over the other
libraries on campus. There are plenty of group study
areas, as well as quiet study areas, throughout the
four floors. The Pulse has a location on the third
floor as well, and sells hot and cold beverages and
snacks for those students studying for the long haul.
