The Jazz on 39th is pretty cool, one of my favorite places to eat but its a (gasp) CHAIN Restruarant.

To answer fully I will need more info

1. What kind of food does said group want?

2. What kind of atmosphere(Laid back, wine bar, sports bar, fancy etc)?

3. Is dinner a prelude to getting pak'd?

Jack Stack is only overrated because it was rated the #1 barbecue restaurant on the rough ridin' planet, so, yeah, i guess it's impossible to be underrated if you're occupying the #1 spot.

JJ's is a great place for a date, their wine list is the best in KC

as it relates to the goings on outside, if you're staring out the  window then your date prob has a terrible rack.

also +1 on Westside Local, their Dark & Stormy's are great.  they used to have rabbit on the menu.  and their anchovies are like the size of a perch.  also, +1 on their deviled eggs, cosign.

Blue Grotto in Brookside is great for pizza, if you're into that.

West Side Local might be my favorite restaurant in the city. I know the person that grows the vegetables they use, which makes it that much better to me.

La bodega is pretty great (the original, not the one in Leawood)

Room 39 has a great (the best) brunch. Again, not the one in Leawood.

edited to include:

Bluestem, should go without saying.

Potpie (right next to bluestem) it is delicious, try it.

and, R bar in the west bottoms. best drinks in the city, and probably one of the best menus also.

That sucks. I have a friend that will make sure he to lets me know that he hates my places that I suggest every time we're out. I like to go to margaritas cause my family went there a lot when I was a kid. He hates it. I like PF Changs orange chicken. It's the worst thing he's ever had. I like mamas 39th st for breakfast. He thinks the service is unbearable. But he sure will tell you how great IHOP is.  :dubious:

Pierpoints has a nice little bar menu, but can be tough to get a seat sometimes on a Friday or Saturday night.

If you like German-ish food, try Grunauer.

Animal recommends the Olive Garden at 95th and Metcalf, but be sure to make your rezzie early.

Rieger Hotel is an interesting experience. Too small for a large group...could be decent date spot but can get pretty noisy. Kitchen is kinda out in the open at the back.

There's a new Peanut in downtown OP, BTW, for those who worship their wings.

The Lydia's haters are retards.    :jerk:



it's really not that good.  if you've been to a really good italian restaurant you would realize this and not fall on a sword defending it.
but go ahead and accept mediocrity, it's what midwesterns do best.

italian food butthurt huh? well that's a new one clams. i wonder if italian restaurant butthurt comes with a side of rigatoni? seems like clams would know. good job clams.

if i want italian i go to Italian Delight/Avelluto's.

if i want the best pizza in kc, i go to italian delight/avellutos and get one and then bring it home and eat it while my cat meows at me.

R Bar closed last weekend. :frown:

The guy who was the chef left a while ago anyways. He opened a butcher shop in the East Bottoms called Local Pig. It's fantastic.

i've been twice.
the first time i just got some jalapeno bacon.  it was basically incredible.
then three weeks ago i picked up two pork shoulders, two slabs of ribs, some spicy  sausage, and two campo lindo chickens.

they literally brought the pig in and will slaughter the pig right in front of you.  all in all, it's pretty kick rough ridin' ass but it's expensive.

Thank you for all the suggestions,

Thursday- Bristol, not my choice and it kinda sucked, put the wives to bed and went to Harrahs
Friday- golf at staley farms, place has turned to a shithole, dinner at Garozos, pretty good, ended up with a $600 tab after losing credit card derby,
            wives go to bed early because of warrior dash the next day, boys to Harrahs, buddy wins $2500 at blackjack in an hour and we hit the P and L
            after some drinks and finger food, everyone pretty hammered at this point we go back to Harrahs where buddy wins another $2500 in an hour.
Saturday- Drag ass to the warrior dash and watch wives slop around in the mud while drinking miller lite and knawing on smoked turkey legs.  Dinner
              at Jackstack which was honestly kind of a letdown, ordered Jacks best, it was OK but was really expecting to be blown away, stopped by
               Cashews for some drinks, then to the p&l, Oh and won credit card derby at Jackstacks and the crowd was going wild.
             
              Didn't make it to bed before 4am all weekend, a good time was had by all.

Has anyone mentioned Piropos yet?  It is pretty tastey.  The mrs and I went to Michael Smiths recently, it was pretty solid.  Has anyone been to the American since Selena (or whatever her name is) left?  Is it still fantastic?

No, but tell me how that goes.

Sausages are legit. I had the lamb cumin oregano sausage and it was the tits, lady friend had some chicken and apple which kind of sucked but i could of told her that before she ordered it.

They also have a really good siriachi aoli to dip your fries in.

Service kind of sucked but I'll give them a pass on that because they just opened.

Best bang for your sushi buck are the strip mall mom n pop places like Jun's @ 75th and State line and Haru at 135th & State line.

Nara downtown is pretty good and has a much more fun atmosphere than the above places but the food is not as good.  Same can be said about Raw (119th and Nall).

look, i'm sure that whatever fried rosemary chicken you had was just fine. i'm also pretty sure that the chicken at el pollo ray in kansas city kansas would mop the floor with it and then put it with the baby in some bath water and throw them all out. case closed on operation chicken, vedict plaintiff.

Really just everything on 39th is delicious. Po's? Uhm yeah have the standard cashew chicken. Genghis Khan? Amazeballs, put an egg in your food, and eat like 7 crab rangoon. D'bronx? Duh. Prospero's bookstore? Even their shelf dust is probably delicious.

jazz  :drool:

forget to read the thread title?  last i checked we were talking about restaurants in this thread, inspector Clouseau.  maybe someone changed the subject and i missed it.  not sure.  i do remember when we were talking about dive bars in a different thread and i stated that DB's is the best dive bar in KC although i don't think i said it was my favorite dive bar.  would be kind of  weird to have a favorite dive bar.  matter of fact, i don't go to many dive bars anymore.  doesn't change the fact about DBs though. its still the best.  maybe in norcal people eat at dive bars? so you just assumed these threads were basically the same?

It had everything you could ever ask for. Halfway seedy residential neighborhood? Check.  Lady eating at the table next to me wearing fur on her shoulders?  Check. Server named Vincent? Check. Bartender named Vinny? Check.  To top it all off a guy came in and sat at the bar just as I sat down.  He was wearing a velour track-suit and when he left Vinny said, "See you later Mr. Rizzo."

The food was good too.

Yes, its pretty good but I would say overrated based on what I had read.  There wasn't anything we had there that you would just go head over heals about.  Dont get me wrong, I want to go back and try some other things but there wasn't anything that stood out to me as a must recommend.  Kind of a too cool for school type place someone on here is going to rip me for thinking it wasnt the most amazing food this side of New Orleans.

The thing about PF's brunch is their build your own bloody mary station (if you like a BM)

As for Gram and Dun, I'll have to put that on my to do list. They were going to call the taco place "Big Papi's Tacos" but apparently David Ortiz was all  :nono: So now it'll be called "Taco Republic".

i've never been to en chamas.  fogo was my one and only shot at a brazilian steakhouse. 
i was really kind of mad after i paid +$150 for that crap. 

i mean. if you're trying to get your beef/lamb on and prefer quantity over quality, then you might like it.  but i'll never go back.  the gf liked the salad bar, i did a once over and concluded it looked like a salad bar potluck from some retirement home.  then headed back to my seat and started gorging on the overcooked meat until i felt like i had eaten as much as was possible for me.  and then felt gross. 

i met a hungarian girl who said it was her favorite restaurant in kc.  others must like it too, it's been open now for a few years.  for that much money though, you can get a better meal in kc.

of course cordish is going to eff them.  was talking to the head chef from bread & butter last week and he's convinced they'll be fine.

Port Fonda, I agree with most here. Pretty meh. Gf and I split shrimp, pork, and beef tongue tacos. Guacamole was fantastic but then again when isn't it? Tortillas were subpar.

The way to do fogo is during restaurant week. Its only $30, and it includes dessert if you can leave room for cheesecake. I found room for cheesecake

I ate at the one in Chicago and I felt the same way.  Wasn't worth it.  Wasn't a fan of the meat runner guys/flip card system either.  Something about all those dorks running around with meat all over the place put me off.  I'd rather just order a dish and be done with it.  I don't need people carting meat back and forth to my table.

I have eaten there a dozen or so times, and it's consistently good.  They just re-vamped their pizza (I don't really order it that much) and it's amazing....maybe the best that I have had in KC.

Hi fellow downtown runner/resident/friend.

Love it for the beer selection....food I've had is a mixed bag.  Nothing bad so far, but a lot of meh.  Haven't tried anything from the butcher to take home....my condo isn't conducive to grilling at home.  The steak I did have there was pretty good.

i enjoyed Anton's the one time i went. i had the fish tacos, they were fine. along with several beers. great tap selection obviously. go downstairs and you can see all where they grow their herbs and green stuff and all that, along with a fish farm that they use for some (if not all) of their fish entrees (including my tacos).

Antons steak and fish tacos have been great. Lots of steak options. I think they just changed chefs again.

Wine by the carafe was a good deal and not crap wine.

colby garrelts finally won his james beard award last night.
good for him and good luck at his new joint Rye out south in Mission Farms.  That space has seemed to turnover pretty fast even with the great patio it has.  I love that they Little Apple red on tap even if it doesn't do it for the snobbiest of beer snobs.

Going here tonight? Suggestions? I was thinking fried chicken but they also have Trout  :lick:
deviled eggs, butcher board, smoked brisket burnt ends (i haven't had their bbq).  the chicken was good, but it was "just" fried chicken and imo lacked seasoning.  i prefer more cayenne than most places want to give me.
Can confirm on the fried chicken, it was a good thing they had the house made hot sauce on the table to make it interesting.

My wife had a pulled pork sandwich that was pretty damn good.

Kids are well behaved and have come through with shining colors in the past.  So ritzy places are in play here.

Anything goes.

Kind of depends where you are staying.  Most of my personal experience is everything north of the plaza.

I would think you would want to get some good BBQ since it's kind of the KC thing to do so any of the standard spots.  Gates, Bryants, or OK Joes all give a good experience and good food.  Not sure what part of the city you are in but Strouds is a good family place with great food.  Kids and you will love the cinn rolls.

I always enjoy pretty much anything on SW Blvd for mexican food, Beer Kitchen in Westport is very good and the kids would enjoy it.  If you want to get exotic Extra Virgin is very good and has some wild things on the menu like duck tongue tacos etc.  Depending on weather Haus down in Martini corner has a sweet patio, some interesting beers, and lots of different brat options that you could all enjoy.

Everyone loves pizza so maybe Grinders and they have cool junk to look at.  Favorite wing spot is The Peanut, get BLT's for those that cant handle the heat.  Wings are huge so only get 6 even if you are hungry.

Crown Center has some fun places to eat depending on kid ages....younger like under 10 (I guess, not blessed with children) Fritz's and Crayola Cafe are fun for kids.  Streetcar named desire is a weird place that actually had good burgers when I ate there years ago.  Gates if you want quick BBQ or Jack Stack if you want nice is probably where I'd hit on Sunday if not those other places.

ate at Juns last month.  I've had better sushi at 2 places in Topeka.

who knew Topeka was such a sushi hub????  :dunno:

that's not an endorsement of Topeka (especially since the best sushi place closed) but an indictment of how much Jun's sucked.

i've heard the food at fritz's sucks, but do kids care?  they have trains.
true, the goddamn ingrates hardly eat anything.   I will say the  OG Fritz's in kck is the best of a bad bunch and not nearly as crowded on any given Saturday

FYI, this thread is about making fun of ChiCat's farmageddon hotel out in the hood of the plaza that was far away from all the pak'ing.

chi pak'd with us at JJ's though, was that farmageddon?  i wanted him to pick up the hot black chick but chi wasn't down.

Back on the topic of Kona's locale, I'd say it's on the western side by a smidge.  At least I think of it as more western than eastern.

You know what I always forget about being on the East Side?  Grand Street Cafe.  That's a great place.  I wish they would move to the real plaza.
This place is great. Tried it for the first time and would go back.

Thanks for all the input fellas it is appreciated.  We will be staying at the race track.   Saturday is Worlds of Fun for a good portion of the day, might try one of the West Port suggestions on our way back.  Crown Center on Sunday so will probs hit one of the suggestions in that area.  Monday we will be visiting family in Topeka on our way back home.   :surprised: I like sushi!

Crown Center has some fun places to eat depending on kid ages....younger like under 10 (I guess, not blessed with children) Fritz's and Crayola Cafe are fun for kids.  Streetcar named desire is a weird place that actually had good burgers when I ate there years ago.  Gates if you want quick BBQ or Jack Stack if you want nice is probably where I'd hit on Sunday if not those other places.
as someone with kids,  I can say with full confidence the food at  Fritz's sucks and Crayola is only marginally better but they do serve beer.

Notice I never said good food in reference to those two.

Now that I've been to Fonda a few times, I think it's one of those places that's good, but just not worth waiting an hour to eat there. Although, if you're not hungry, you can always put your name in and go grab a couple of beers at Harry's or somewhere.

It was obvious that everybody in there wore Baldwin, but at least he admits it's their uniform. Either they pay their employees pretty well, or when you work someplace like that your main employment concern is looking cool instead of making money.

All-Star Pizza and Pub.  Anyone been?  Have had their pizza and wings(second place behind peanut in my book) a few times but last night was a burger deal.  Pretty good stuff.

Most surprising and wonderful thing was their beer menu though.  At least 30 beers on tap and several you probably wouldnt get but maybe one or two other places in town.

Roommates and I were bored one afternoon and got pak'd on old fashioneds and played skee ball in the back room, that was fun.  Also, the bartender wearing the newsie hat is EMAW, so that's another bonus of Nica's.

If you get a groupon somewhere and like the place, hop on TripAdvisor or Yelp or whatever and give them a positive review.  Groupons are hell on a business because they make basically no money off them and people who buy them are usually cheap asses that leave shitty reviews.  Most businesses are figuring this out finally.

We thought it would be too.  When we got there I think we were one of maybe three couples under 50 in the entire restaurant.   The waiter said that most of their business comes from regulars who live in Deer Creek. 

There was a jazz band in the back room that we stuck around to listen to for a while.  It was pretty cool but we eventually left to meet up with some friends over at Nick and Jakes.  I would recommend going there for the food but not for the atmosphere.

Did Snow & Co. Last night for a pre dinner cocktail and finished it with dinner at Anton's.  Goodnstuff at both places.  Can't help but feel like you are getting ripped at Snow with 7.50 cocktail slushees coming out of a machine.  But I guess that's not bad for a premium cocktail. We tried the flight of 5 different ones and they were all very good. Rockafeller  :drool:

Had the steak burger at Anton's. Very good simple burger for the most part. Beer selection is impressive and the bar area is pretty darn cool.  Would go back for food or to just try beer.

not sure i ever told you guys about the time i went to brgr and got the fish and chips but here goes.  well, i went there in mid-Feb and ordered the fish and chips.  well, the order comes out and i'm looking at what should be fries/chips.  guess what?  the truth is, they were actual chips, like potato chips.  not fries called chips. the waiter offered to get me fries but i rebuked his offer b/c i didn't want to sit there and eat my fish and then later eat my chips fries, who does that?  i was pissed, haven't been back since.

funny sidenote- as i was walking to the car to leave, it was prob about 60 degrees out and i said to the lady i was there with that oh boy, only 2 more weeks of february so that basically means only 2 more weeks of winter.  then this march came and boy was i wrong about that one, snow and cold city.  oh well, c'est la vie i guess.  american troops in afghanistan fighting for america and i'm worried about snowmegeddon and windchill factors.  doesn't make sense sometimes.  go america, patriot fighters!

tilapia wouldn't be near the hit if it was called boarfish or brown dobber or something. so take this as a lesson to all you fish namers out there. you want to get people to buy and eat your fish? name it tilapia or crescent bay fish or geneviva or something like that. brown dobber? gross would not eat.

Just enjoyed some Jack Stack wings and BBQ beans.  :drool: As always the beans were good, but we are here to talk about those wings.  They come out in a little ceramic bowl thing and there are about 10 wings?  All nice and smokey looking with a few charred areas.  They have a cajun rub on them and we not sauced at all.  Different than a buffalo wing for sure, but very good.  I would put them as my #1 nontraditional wing for sure.  Well above any of those wild flavors at BWW.  Thank you Clams   :thumbs:

they use a dry rub and then dip them in butter.  maybe i hype them up more than i should but i've been eating an order a week for the past couple months.  i  consider all wings in the same category regardless of whether or not they use buffalo sauce to derive their heat or some dry rub or assgravy or whatever.  glad you liked them.

I guess there's nothing wrong with a little 'faux-Mex' every once in awhile. But, if you want authentic Mexican food, at least make sure the people cooking it and/or serving it speak Spanish. ¿Entiendes, Méndez?

Bonus: If there's a little grandma in the back rolling (flour) or patting (corn) out tortillas, you're golden.

Pissclams and others, tell me more about this pollo place in KCK. It's been over 7 years since I moved away and would like to try it out next time I roll through my hometown.

Enjoyed brunch at Pig and Finch in Park Place on Sunday morning (I had the Corned Beef Hash, Mrs. WNK had the Sunny Side Up Egg on Brioche).  Afterwards we walked about 50 feet to Marv's Delicatessen and ordered a brisket and corned beef melt (#14 Over and Under and Mrs. WNK had the classic Reuben) to-go for dinner that night.  And of course we had to share a small cup of Paciguo gelato on the way home.       :blush:

Wow, what a weekend it was in KC.  Got plenty of the city's best eats.

For those that recommended Jose Peppers: THANK YOU!  My taste buds exploded with the authentic south of the border flavor.  I had the Monterey Chicken Burrito and I can say, with no reservations, that it is the best meal in KC.  Hands down.  Not the best Mexican dish.  Not the best "non-bbq" dish.  The best meal.  Period.  End of story.  Comprenden??

Also ate at this little pizza bistro called "Pizza Street."  It was tucked away in some vacant shopping center in OP (off ~75th and quivera).  It was buffet style and pretty cheap.  The pizza was very unique - buffalo chicken, mac and cheese, baked potato, etc.  It was perfect for a little lunch spot.  The slices are really small so you can eat about 25 and sample all the different kinds completely guilt free. Not in the same universe as Jose Peppers, but I absolutely recommend it.

Rieger is perfect for a "quiet table with some privacy."  I mean, it's no dimly lit with high-backed booth seating.  But, IMO it's one of the better "date spots" in the downtown area.  Make sure to call in advance and make a reservation for the speak easy downstairs.  atmosphere is cool an drinks are incredible.  incredibly expensive too, but worth it IMO.

Well, YMMV, I guess. When I've been there, it's been loud and everyone has been pretty close to their neighbors, but it's also been full, so maybe it's quieter and more private on off-nights. It would be fine for a date...my point was just that it wouldn't be my first choice for a date if I wanted to have a more serious/intimate conversation. Here's a photo (http://www.theriegerkc.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/IMG_1277-e1323134316177.jpg) so you can decide if it's what you're looking for.

Manifesto (http://www.theriegerkc.com/manifesto/), on the other hand, *is* quiet and private, by design. I think you can also call Manifesto on the text line Phil listed, so you can ask about their current reservation policy. Cocktails are each about $10, but they're hand-crafted and strong and delicious.

Split the Super Sampler App with the gf.  Everything was really good, except the onion rings were overcooked.  The entrees were more expensive than I expected from a place called "sizzles" but I will try them next time and see if they are worth it.  Decent beer selection.

Ate at the Opera House Saturday morning. It was pretty awesome. Apparently they have the best burger in city market. Also, they're breakfast sandwich and potatoe sides were the bomb. Pretty hipsterish. seemed like MC's dream spot.

I don't care about how they source they food from "Local growers" I just care that it was DAM good. Forgot the name of what I ordered but it was 2 huge fancy schmancy biscuits/gravy and a fried egg piled on a large chunk of sausage.

They also serve their coffee in French presses...Like you order a large coffee and they bring you a full French press  :love: :love:

When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie.  That's amore.  And i'd like to have some more'e.  More Pizza street that is.  So many different types of pizza to choose from -- it was like a whole cavalcade of pizza flavors!

It had all the basics: your cheese, pepperoni, sausage, etc.  But they also had all these authentic italian spins on the classics: Jalapeno pep, BufChick, and Alfredo Pizza (just like my nina used to prepare!)! 

Not to mention, piles and piles of pasta. 

Did I mention the best part yet?  It's a buffet.

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool.  That's amore.  That's Pizza Street.  That's my KC Restaurant lock of the year.

went to 'za st with bubbles one time before farmageddon and they kicked him out for stealing the ice cream he thought came with his buffet.

could have been the natty light he brought in his hoodie that did it, though. don't really remember.

Left over anything from a meal eaten at a restaurant is sad and gross.  If you didn't finish it, it's garbage probably. 

"Oh hey could I get some kind of box or whatever to put this little bit of food I have left on my plate in and take it with me to my house so I can reheat it and it'll be gross and not enough nom nom nom?"  Like is it just a snack then?  It's not a meal.  I don't know.  I don't care for it, though I do realize it is wasteful I suppose.  Something about it has always put me off.  No thanks I say even as a young gun.

I like left over chinese food

If it's takeout to begin with then I don't have an aversion generally.  It's eating at the place and then bringing the leavings home.  Somehow sad and gross.  Now that I think about it though I only eat Chinese food in the first go.  Reheating that is generally pretty nasty.  I don't over order so it's not too wasteful if at all.

left over MCB's?  couple q's:

1. They're not really very big.  How come you didn't finish it?  Too much 'naca and thin chips while you were waiting?  Hope you didn't fill up on that cornmeal dessert they give you.  Those are grizossss.  But my sister is bonkers for them.

2.  The MCB is a little thick.  How did you heat it up?  Did you slice the leftover in half?  Otherwise i feel like the MCB 'naca would get hotter than the sun and the grilled chicken would be an iceberg.

3.  Did you put their beans and rice in the doggy bag?  I think their beans and rice sucks.

I am a notorious CCQ/Salsa devourer when going to Mexican restaurants.  I usually eat a meal's worth and end up taking half of the entree home.

Unfortunately, I am not the foodie a lot of you guys are and can't answer the second question to your satisfaction (most likely).  I just nuke it and let it cool down until I can eat it again.

I love the cornmeal thing.  I've realized over time that I'm in the minority on that.  My wife always gives me hers.

 :shakesfist:

Started with the Roasted Beet Risotto (beef tongue, creme fraiche, watercress) - Probably the best thing I had that night.
Mrs. WNK ordered Rare Hare Barn Rabbit Cacciatore (bacon, braised kale, local polenta, olive bread) There were a few hidden bites of bones in the mix that the wife couldn't handle.  We switched meals.
I ordered Crispy Beef Cheeks (creamed hominy, grilled escarole, horseradish-Dijon aioli)  it was pretty good, but overcooked. 

One guest at our table had Cauliflower-Parmesan Sformato (grated Marcona almond, lemon brown butter, crispy potatoes, capers, swiss chard) which was probably the best Entree at the table.

It was good, but not good enough to go back and throw down a Benjamin anytime soon.  I'll eventually give it another chance.

I wish it did better business, the owner is super nice, the menu is unique and there aren't many Japanese restaurants in KC that aren't just bland sushi restaurants for white people. It's hard to compete though when 90% of the Westport crowd goes there specifically for Beer Kitchen and McCoys

Yeah, she's pretty awesome. I want it to succeed just because of her. The ramen is pretty legit. Maybe not NY ramen, but good. Hard for me to pass on the Yaki though. We've only been twice to the Westport location and both times there were fewer people than when she was out south in a smaller building.

yeah i should have looked at it more, we had just a pre-determined three course thing.. chips/guac, chicken and salmon tacos, chicken tortilla soup, desserts.

i did glance at it though, it looks similar, just more condensed, fewer items. probably less geared toward foodies. ie the beef tongue tacos aren't on there which i really like at PF.

was pretty disgusted with myself, why on earth would anyone choose to pay 3 bucks for an inferior product when bonito is cranking out the most delicious taco's in the world for just a buck. i mean just move this to the shame yourself thread, tia.

I went to Drunken Worm tonight, and enjoyed. It's a cute little Taco Lucha-esque place in the 39th street neighborhood. It's owned by some EMAWs who also own (owned?) Johns Big Deck (R.I.P). I had a pulled pork taco and it was great. Very cheap food too. Also, they were giving out free tequila shots as samples every 30 minutes, which was great.

Must see attractions. Go to jack stack if you want something nicer, but ok joes is the best you know it. If they don't mind being crowded, Grinders is a must stop. Best philly and wings in the area. Also, if you need something upscale one night and a nice steak, Antons is right downtown for you.

listen if you are from out of town and you get to try OK Joes, Gates, Arthur Bryant's, or Jack Stack, you can truthfully say you've had some of the best in KC.

Only been to new location a couple times. Nothing horrible... Nothing stands out from what I remember.

It's good.  Would go back if 1) I worked closer, and 2) it was sofa king busy.

this is a good time to ask about this.

going to be stopping in KC for a few hours on the way to a family event. wanting to possibly try a new bbq place if it's worth it. have had LC's, ok joes, arthur bryants, gates, jack stack and one other place I can't remember the name of. Any suggestos?

q39, rosedale, rj's..
Ms. Wacky's other side of the family run the rosedale joint and i've never even tried it. We should have a KC PAK where I cater in Zarda and Rosedale for a katz game.

Meh, Gates sucks. If I'm paying someone for a product or sevice I don't like getting screamed at.

Also, last time I visited the Linwood/Main location they attempted to run my buddy's CC for $150 on a $15 ticket. When I caught what I thought was an honest mistake just before they ran the card, I got the worst look I've ever rec'd. I sort of laughed it off and said "man, that'd be one expensive beef on bun!" and she responded with "honey, we ain't laughin' withchu." The other girl working the counter then said "bitch, why did you just run [the card]???"

Needless to say, I'm not going back to that mediocre, overrated place again. crap people.

Nope, I'd definitely include slave owners in the racist category. However, I do not consider myself a racist for being upset about Gates employees attempting to scam my friend out of money and then being absolute bitches to me when I ASSUMED it was an honest mistake.

I introduced them to half a dozen retailers in the region. It turned into a full-time role that I started while still in school.

When you're accused of being a racist there are a few options 1) Think to yourself, "Damn straight, I hate minorities!" and then proceed to tell everyone about it. 2) Think to yourself, "Damn straight, I hate minorities...BUT I don't want to be labeled a racist so I'm gonna try and justify what I said." 3) You've been wrongly accused in your mind, so you start rationalizing your comments and usually doubling down on the stupid thing you originally said, even though you didn't INTEND anything you said to be racist. 4) You feel like you've been misinterpreted, but you realize that race is a very sensitive issue and impacts people in a real way, so you review your comments and see if there is a better way to present your views/maybe they actually have a point and you should reevaluate some of your preconceived notions of race. Number four is a good mindset in life that will be beneficial for you and the people you come into contact with. The rest of those scenarios produce varying degrees of shitty results that stunt your growth as a human being and negatively impact the people you come into contact with.

I'll be taking a short sabbatical (not like Landon Donovan). For the record, though, I'm aware of more people on gE that personally hate me than people that are active on gE that like me. Even the couple that might like me have closer connections to those people that hate me. I just love the cats and people that love the cats. I'll be better.

For now, my self-inflicted penance for these transgressions will be getting lunch at the Linwood and Main Gates today. I'll provide a reflection of sorts. Hopefully I'll be blown away just as I was the by first visit visit back to Bryant's after they were briefly shut down last year after failing a random health inspection.

I shouldn't talk bad about that place for business reasons, but it's very underwhelming. It's also overpriced for what you get. I think they priced their tank 7 at like $8-9. I mean, what a jk.

Don't recall any insane prices,  but if their tank 7 really is $8 that's insane.  Food was ok,  had the bbq French dip Sammy.

Pro tip:  This is not a sponsorship, this is Ale House getting people from the kickball league to come drink beer that isn't on sale on a slow night.

i get either the french dip, the flying chicken platter, the hickory burger, the salmon, or the filet.  always get the red beans and rice soup on monday's and the baked potato soup (used to be on sunday's, now moved to thursdays for some strange reason).

I ate at my two favorite places this weekend. Beer Kitchen and Margaritas. I've kinda gave up on all the other restaurants here in KC cause I don't think they can satisfy me the way that those two do.

A good French Dip is one of my five favorite meals, and Houston's is (maybe) the best I've ever had.

I will say, that I did go to the Cheesecake Factory this weekend, struggled to find something I wanted, and then went to the French Dip.  Was pleasantly surprised.

so downtown pizza co operates out of a gay bar. i had no idea. ordered carryout late friday night and was expecting your typical late night pizza place, but no, it's just a bar with a bunch of fit dudes and great music, no sign of pizza anywhere. i had to ask a bar tender (dressed in leather pants and no shirt :D) if i was in the right place.. pizza was good! AND i got a free shot from some of the very nice patrons that were at the bar.

I don't remember specifically where the BBQ stuff is in this thread, but it's safe to say it is there because it's in just about every KC related thread.  Mocat was the one that brought up the humblebragginess in this thread. I think there is a lot of "hey check out this hip place I go to" in this thread, so I agreed. :dunno:

Studio? I got banned for life from that place according to the surprisingly aggressive bouncer considering the bar theme.
