Shopping Break at Fuddrucker’s

The Legends Shopping Center, in Kansas City, Kansas, is laid out similar to many of the newer outdoor style malls.

Most of the retail shops are connected by walkways, in a somewhat central corridor.  This allows patrons to find accessible parking for dining without the need to pass by a multitude of shops.  Continue reading

Writer’s Choice at Big Q Bar-B-Q

Many foods can evoke strong opinions from those who are partial to them, and in Kansas City, none of these more than barbecue. Our choice for at home dining is Big Q Bar-B-Q located at 2117 S 34th St in Kansas City, KS. Now many cities and states lay claim to be the “BBQ Capitol of the World”, and this post is not going to try to sway anyone’s opinion. Just as there are many regions involved, so are there a multitude of restaurants in each of these cities. In Kansas City alone there are dozens of places serving up their own versions on a daily basis. So it’s easy to find something for your taste buds right here in the metro, and many people have determined their overall favorite, while others bounce between a few for variety.

Big Flavor at Big Bam’s Burgers

Most of us have memories of that special restaurant where they prepare a dish unlike anybody else. Maybe it was the best fish & chips at Arthur Treachers or the onion rings at Paul Bunyan Burgers. No matter what the memory, most of us have one or more special places locked away. Such is the memory I have associated with the burgers and onion rings at Big Bam’s Burgers. I suppose so many of these memories are tied to food, because it is a necessity for our survival. It helps for it be delicious, as well. Located at 5930 Nieman Road in Shawnee, this quiet little burger joint is knocking it out of the park every day. Their burger patties are made fresh daily with 3 ingredients; ground chuck, salt, and pepper. While many claim this, Bam’s actually does it, and the flavor comes through.Continue reading
