The beloved burger joint recently moved from downtown Overland Park to Johnson Drive in downtown Mission, taking over the former Town Topic. Snack Shack owners Matt Tolle and his wife Rayna Andrew brought not only their own memorabilia, but their own well-seasoned flat top.
Sipping a caramel shake and smashing one of their diner-style burgers while the jukebox plays “River of Dreams” or “Midnight Train to Georgia,” you’d think Snack Shack has already been there for a generation. The move was three short miles, but Tolle says he’s heard from a number of loyal OP customers who’d never been to Mission.
The burgers and the “Sweet Corn Nuggets” (think: deep-fried corn pudding) are a little different because they have to be—supply chain issues have forced them to find new suppliers, which Tolle responded to by tapping Hertzog Beef ranch south of the city for meat.
