Western Kansas Saloon & Grill
Western Kansas Saloon & Grill is located in a restored hardware store featuring antiques, the original freight elevator, a pressed-tin ceiling, and the original skylight. The most unusual feature is the triangle-shaped hole in the floor where early day clerks dropped coins onto the card table in the basement to notify high-stakes gamblers that the law had just arrived.
The famous WaKeeney Christmas Tree was also designed and built in the basement of the Keraus Hardware Store.
Today six large original paintings adorn the walls. A local artist painted them and they feature local scenes, such as a buffalo herd, pioneers at their cabin, Indians in their village, a windmill, a rancher and his cattle, and a special bar scene with four local men.
The menu features delicious steaks, seafood, and pasta. For dessert choose from handmade, mouth-watering selections.
