Baker Township Reviews

3 reviews
Its alright for a college town. You basically have all you need. The good thing is that there is a lot of local business owners so its not lots of corporate owned boxes. My favorite place to go is a Mexican restaurant called in its English name Golden horse. Best Mexican in town! It's near the police station. And If you want something more near the college and really cheap mall deli is a Pittsburgh favorite. It's in the Pittsburgh mall. I warn you there is a del rio mexican resturant right across from the mall deli. DO NOT GO THERE! I use to work there their food is some of the most expensive in town, and its some of the worst food.
Review Baker Township
Pittsburg Kansas has lots to offer for people who are coming to get a education at Pittsburg State University. The community of the city is supporting with local events such as charities and supports one another.
The town itself has some things such as some houses that need updated in some areas of living, but there are some really nice areas to live.
