Real Food For Real People at Wolfe-es Restaurant

The residents of Armourdale are hard working people who value their money, but enjoy spending time with their neighbors. This is apparent when you visit Wolfe-es Restaurant located at 842 Osage Avenue. The Armourdale area of Kansas City, Kansas is one of the older sections of the city. What began around 1880 was a base for many of the meat packing companies that called Kansas City home. The area has been subjected to near total devastation from floods in 1903, and again in 1951. Through all of this, many families have continued to call this area home.

This hometown landmark has served up great food, at a good value for years. They don’t get a lot of press releases or notoriety, but their food is well known around the metro. People flock here in the morning for a hot cup of coffee and a warm breakfast. The food is dished out in large helpings, so the customers don’t leave for work hungry. The menu at Wolfe-es is filled with your average diner staples, and the preparation is consistent. You seat yourself at one of the tables or at the counter, and the wait staff takes care of everything else. Conversations take place around and across the restaurant, and you quickly see that this is a local hangout. When the dust has settled, you realize you just had one of the best breakfasts ever, and for an unbelievable low price.

Of course Wolfe-es isn’t just for breakfast. Customers pop in to grab a quick lunch to go, as they head back to their jobs in one of the nearby businesses. The counter fills with regulars swapping stories of the recent past or discussing plans for days to come. Burgers seem to pass through the kitchen non-stop, as the hungry patrons chow down. Soon afternoon gives way to evening, and the dinner crowd stops in. Here again the same relaxed atmosphere can be found. It seems that everybody knows everybody, and they welcome you into the family. The food keeps flying out of the kitchen until late evening, when it’s time to call it a day. Don’t worry, it will all begin again in the morning.

About the Author:

We are Jeff and Crystal, a Baby Boomer couple who love exploring this big blue marble we all call home. After spending the first portion of our lives together raising a family, the empty-nest syndrome finally caught up with us. This has given us the opportunity to spend more time traveling, and seeking out new destinations. We developed this travel blog with the goal of showing how we “Visit Like A Local”. Our itineraries are designed to get us off the interstates, and into the heart of the places we visit. We believe this will allow our readers to choose a cultural experience, and eventually head home with a real flavor of the places they visit. We hope you are enjoying our website and will consider sharing it with your friends. Please come back often, as we post new articles three times per week.
