Getting Unforked

Not too long ago, Sheridan’s (You know the custard people) launched Unforked. You may notice we rarely feature any restaurants that belong to a chain. Oh sometimes we may include one, if it stands out in some particular way. After quite a few people starting suggesting we visit Unforked, we finally decided it was time to test the waters. There are two locations, one at Crown Center, and the one we visited in Overland Park at 7337 W. 119th Street. […]

Long Standing Tradition at Dagwood’s Cafe

The Rosedale section of KCK is filled with small to medium sized businesses, in and around the “Boulevard”. This area was founded early in the city’s life, and has had it’s ups and downs over the years. Flooding has always been a fear of the residents and business owners in this low lying land.

Turner Tradition at Christy’s Tasty Queen

We all know of a roadside diner that serves up a specialty, which is an experience all on its own. Some places are known for their chili or sliders, while others focus on a specific side dish.

It is also home to a tenderloin sandwich that has a following of its own and made [...]

Cross the Tracks to Fritz’s Railroad Restaurant

On my drive home, I was stopped by a train. As I watched the cars roll by, I thought of all of the businesses that have sprouted up, because of the railroads. As my mind wandered, I remembered an article I wrote about Fritz's Railroad Restaurant on my old restaurant blog. This place holds some special memories for me, since I used to visit this restaurant with my father, when he was alive. While we weren't required to cross the tracks to get there, the train connection will always remain. Life Lessons There are many cases in life that the original stands out [...]
