Roadtrip time: Boudreux Burger Barn

A friend recently alerted me to a new burger restaurant in the area, though you’ll have to gas up to get there.

Boudreux Burger Barn opened earlier this month in Peck, a tiny town about six miles south of Haysville. It’s owned by Dominic Bongiorni, a former oil refinery worker who “got tired of working in the heat” so decided to open a burger restaurant.

Bongiorni named the restaurant after his longtime nickname, Boudreux, a common Cajun last name that he says means “farmer, and a man who works alone.”

He’s serving mom-and-pop style burgers plus hand-cut fries, chicken fried steaks, chicken strips and more. Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. The official address is 1499 N. Meridian in Peck, 316-524-2763.
