A Welcome Addition – Deep Roots Restaurant

Life is a series of small victories. Not all will be our own, but fortunately, those of others can often be shared. Being life-long Kansas City, Kansas residents have come with a certain level of ups and downs. After years of economic struggle, our city has seen a revitalization over the past decade. With this resurgence comes new small businesses. Now that shoppers have destinations to visit, the next progression is an opportunity for local restaurants to sprout. One of the newest in the southern edge of Wyandotte County is Deep Roots Restaurant and Bar, at 4601 Shawnee Drive. We find this to [...]

Handhelds And Pizza Pies – D’Bronx Authentic Deli

We have been visiting D'Bronx Authentic Deli for years. Our introduction to this New York-style eatery came in the 1990s, which was not too long after they appeared on the landscape. Their 3904 Bell Street location has always been our go-to spot for handhelds and pizza pies. In fact, one celebration included an attempt to conquer their Party Pizza. Even a group of ravenous teenagers failed to overcome this mountain of dough and toppings. With so many happy memories associated with our visits, we decided that it was past time for us to feature them in an article. Boxes & Bags of Food [...]

Spicing Up Carryout – Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken

The current reality has certainly added a few interesting twists to our dinner routine. Transitioning to carryout meals has forced us to think about the driving distance after we get our meal. Fortunately, we have a ton of options in close proximity, so our meals stay closer to serving temperature. Even the ones that are farther out can still be considered if we use good preparation. One that we have not frequented, in the past, is Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken. We dropped by their Kansas City, Kansas location to see how they are spicing up carryout. Call In & Carry Out Our [...]

Dressing Up Brunch – Summit Grill

How many of you are ready to get back to some sort of normal life? Crystal and I love to visit new restaurant destinations, but this "curbside only" situation is putting a damper on our exploration. Fortunately, we have a good backlog of places we had already visited, so we can keep supplying some new ideas for you to sample after we get out of lock-down. Our daughter lives in the Northland, which has allowed us a new frontier to explore. On a recent visit, we discovered the newest location of Summit Grill had been opened at 501 NE 70th Street. Visiting at [...]

Kansas City has restaurants that cover any cuisine you could imagine. Sampling new eateries are one of our guilty pleasures.

Since Kansas City, Kansas is our corner of the metro, we are always eager to hear about a new dining option coming to town.

Reflecting On Brunch – Urban Table

There is something to be said for loitering. I don't mean the type that will get you ticketed, but the leisurely activity of drawing out an experience. One of our favorite loitering opportunities comes when we go out for brunch. It just seems like the best time to spend extra moments savoring the time away from other responsibilities. Recently, we were reflecting on brunch at Urban Table, which is located at 8232 Mission Road. With plenty of freshly brewed coffee to carry us through our conversations, we soaked in those minutes that fall between breakfast and lunch. A Busy Brunch Let's face it. [...]

Skipping The Chains – Strang Hall

What happens when you gather six chefs all under one roof? You end up with an upscale food court, like the one at Strang Hall, in downtown Overland Park.

This collection of restaurants allows the locals a chance of skipping the chains and trying something unique. Located in the Edison District, it brings new dining options to the mixed-use development just west of Metcalf Avenue.

Why Winter Is Brunch Season – Room 39

We have to believe that we are not much different than most of our readers. Like others, we enjoy a good meal, and trying new restaurants is usually a fun experience. During the winter, we find ourselves having brunch more often. A good example was a stop in Room 39, located at 1719 W. 39th Street. This farm-to-table eatery has been serving Kansas City diners for about 15 years. They offer an upscale dining experience, but their breakfast through lunch meals is a bit more laid back. As we sat there enjoying the moment, it made us contemplate why winter is brunch season. [...]

How many of you like to immerse yourselves in the local history? What if you have the chance to do that while enjoying a tasty meal or beverage?

We want to thank Main Street Parkville and Riverpark Pub for their hospitality. Rest assured all opinions are [...]

Honing In On EJ’s Urban Eatery

We first discovered EJ's Urban Eatery at an event we attended at Kaw Point Park in KCK. They were serving up some of their Baked Macaroni & Cheese along with their Breakfast Ribs. We were smitten with the Mississippi White BBQ Sauce that they used for the ribs. We discovered that this creamy white sauce is common to the region where the owner was raised. It has a mayonnaise base that includes a tangy and slightly spicy side provided by the vinegar, horseradish, and mustard components. After sampling this delicious treat, we knew we needed to locate their brick and mortar location. We snagged one [...]
