Hometown Happy Hour – Sarah’s On The Hill

It never ceases to amaze us how many hidden gems there are scattered all around the Kansas City metro. Even in our own corner of the city there are still places we have yet to discover. Recently, we were clued in on a pizza stop located in downtown KCK. A long week of work, provided the perfect reason to embark on a hometown happy hour at Sarah's on the Hill. Located at 612 North 5th Street, Sarah's has been slinging pies to the locals since 2017. Now it was time for us to sample a bit of their fare. Roughing It Sarah's name [...]

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 [...]

Classic Pies At 1889 Pizza Napoletana

There are few dishes that can represent an entire cuisine. Pizza is one of those meals that can easily stand on its own. In KCK, there are a variety of pizza shops, but 1889 Pizza Napoletana stands out from the crowd by delivering classic pies to its customers. We've had the chance to visit previously, but with eats this good, we were happy to make a return.

Picture Perfect Pizzas At Artego Pizza

Kansas City is filled with all kinds of pizza joints. Many are owned and operated by pizza aficionados who studied in Italy or New York or maybe even Chicago. They bring their special perspective to the food they love creating and give us all a nice variety of pizzerias to select from.

Neapolitan Style Pies At Spin Pizza

For as long as they have been around, surprisingly we had never visited Spin Neapolitan Pizza restaurant. During a bout of shopping, hunger overtook us, and we stopped by their location at 14230 W. 119th Street in Olathe, Kansas. What we discovered at this locally originated pizzeria has created a couple of new fans of the place. Looking For A Quick Bite Shopping is one of our favorite leisure activities, and it doesn't matter if we are buying or just looking. It was a beautiful Fall day in Kansas City, so just being Out & About was nice. We will often just target [...]

Family Rules at Old Shawnee Pizza

You can tell a lot about a restaurant by the length of time it has been in business. Old Shawnee Pizza was established in 1969 by Joe Walker. Looking to provide a better life for his family, he borrowed the money from his father to begin the venture. Years later, seeing the need for more room, he moved to the current location at 60th & Nieman Road. They have since expanded to add a second location in Lenexa, Kansas. We have visited both sites, but prefer the original, as it is much closer to our neck of the woods. Their menu is not limited [...]
