Victorian Elegance At Grand Central Hotel

Our visit to Eureka Springs began with a stay in the treetops, but we saved our last night for a different experience. The opportunity to stay at the Grand Central Hotel was not to be passed up. Located in the downtown Historic District, it offered a chance to be within walking distance of tons of shops and restaurants. The hotel is the oldest in Eureka Springs, and is bathed in Victorian charm.Continue reading

Homestyle Dining At Pegah’s Family Restaurant

We have visited Pegah’s Family Restaurant in the past, but it was only for breakfast. While these have been good, we never seemed to have our camera on hand when we visited. It was high time we rectified this oversight, and decided to make a lunch stop during a day of exploring. They have four locations, but for this meal we stopped at the one at 11005 Johnson Drive in Mission, Kansas. They also have locations in Lenexa, Merriam, and out west at Johnson Drive & K-7 Highway. You can find exact addresses at their website, in the link above.Continue reading

Caz’s Chowhouse Delivers Down Home Eats

When we are in the planning phase of a trip, I like to leave a little room in the schedule for unexpected destinations. It never fails that many of the locals will point out some of their top spots, and when one gets mentioned multiple times, we try to squeeze in a visit. In Tulsa, we spoke with people in the Brady Arts District about a casual meal, and Caz’s Chowhouse was mentioned on numerous occasions. It was decided to stop in for a relaxed lunch break, after our visit to the Woody Guthrie Center. (You can read more about the Center here>)Continue reading

Nibbles Eatery Delivers Big Flavor In A Small Space

Our survey of readers had brought to light a small breakfast spot in the heart of downtown Eureka Springs. We had walked past Nibbles Eatery during our shopping excursion, and decided it would make a great stop for our last morning in town. Had we known what we were about to experience, we would have eaten here every morning. This is one of those books that you cannot judge by the cover.Continue reading

Hereford House Happy Hour

Like most couples, we have our list of favorites. While we love trying new places, at times we tend to gravitate back to our tried and true picks. When it comes to a nice Happy Hour, one of our tops is found at the Hereford House at 17244 Midland Drive, in Shawnee. An added bonus is that one of our favorite bartenders, Natalya, works at this location. Recently, we stopped by for a Friday evening early dinner to enjoy a little relaxed atmosphere.Continue reading

Tacos Don Francisco – Hole In The Wall Dining In Tulsa

We always make an itinerary for our research trips, since it helps keep us on track. While many of the attractions are the base for our visit, we try to be a little more fluid with our restaurant plans. While I will certainly select a few “must try” locations, some of the others are open for change, as new information comes to light. This was certainly the case for our unplanned visit to Tacos don Francisco in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Continue reading

Dining In Style On The Eureka Springs Train

A visit to Eureka Springs, Arkansas offers a chance to slow down from the hectic pace of everyday life. This quaint town in the Ozark Mountains is more geared toward leisurely pleasures, and we certainly were looking for some to sample. The Eureka Springs Train hosts a lunch ride that looked perfect for a romantic lunch date. We haven’t spent much time on trains, so the idea of dining onboard was quite intriguing.Continue reading

Dinner And All That Jazz

When we find a restaurant that adds live music to the mix, we know it will be popular. Jazz Louisiana Kitchen certainly falls into this category. What started just over 25 years ago, has grown to include six locations in four states. We dropped by their KCK location, which is found on the west end of the Legends Shopping Center. A weekend visit means that there will be a live performance taking place. They also feature periodic shows during the weeknight evenings, but you may want to check their website for show dates and times.Continue reading
