Love this place
by Scott Mausbach
I dont know what I am going to do if I move away from Shawnee?????This is as close as it gets to competing with the SoCal style burgers in Kansas City....San Diego is the MECCA for burgers, and Bam's would fit right in with the likes of Hodad's in Ocean Beach, Rocky's in PB, etc...love this place and especially the En Fuego!

Everything was fresh and hot. The staff was super friendly. I'd eat here again to try their other options.

Great place - will go back
My friend and I and our kids went here for lunch before heading to Wonderscope. It was awesome. I ordered the Buffalo Chicken sandwich and was able to get grilled chicken instead of breaded and deep-fried. The kids' hamburger was the perfect size for a kid. My other 2 kids had the chicken nuggets. It's hard to mess them up (though we have been to places where they have been royally messed up!), and they were quite tasty. My friend had the veggie burger. She said she is picky about veggie burgers, and she thoroughly enjoyed this one. My kids decided to be obnoxious, annoying children while at here, but the staff was incredible forgiving and gracious.

Ladder 49 is a great burger. I would recommend this little resturant to anyone for a great burger.

Hits the Spot
by Sweet Goodness
You can't judge a restaurant by its exterior. Sure it looks a little "hole in the wallish" on the outside, but truly do not let this fool you. The food is really delicous and the atmosphere on the inside is not the same as the plain jane outside.The dining area is clean, the counters are clean, and when there are no customers the person at the counter is cleaning.Today,I stopped in for the first time and ordered a Ladder 49 with rings. I was thoughroughly impressed by the non-flattened juicy burger that I got. My cheese was nice and melted and the cancun sauce was perfectly spicy. My rings were hot, but not to hot to the point of not being able to eat them all in the car on my drive back to work.I like the simple menu. It has multiple types of burgers, chicken sandwiches, sides and salads. It also has a great children's menu that even a picky kid could find something with. And if it is not on the menu, just ask, they might just make it for you.I look forward to eating here more.

Get this food!

I tried it on a whim and really liked it. The menu has some tasty looking sandwiches in addition to burgers, and all the prices were about five bucks per sandwich. I tried the Ladder 49 and would recommend it to anybody that likes a spicy burger. The beef was medium-well and slightly seasoned. Don't forget to add the jap's, too.
