Kansas City is famous for its barbecue, and this restaurant is one of the reasons why. Arthur Bryant's has been serving up slabs of slow cooked pork and beef since the 1930's. The small building is nothing fancy and resides in a somewhat disreputable part of town, but diners do not necessarily come for the ambiance. Nevertheless, Mr. Bryant has a couple of other locations around town. Casual dining is an understatement here, where guests line up, sometimes waiting up to 30 minutes just to order at the counter. Be sure to order a plate of greasy, delicious fries, and be prepared for huge portions.
There is almost nothing better than a great burger and a nicely crafted beer. Here at the Green Room, guests will definitely find both. The burger and fries menu has some interesting variations, try the Fiddler Fries made with jalapeno, bacon, cheese and a fried egg alongside the 'Dubbel Dubliner', a beef behemoth served on a pumpernickel bun. In addition to the delicious burger combos, the beer is equally phenomenal with at least six different rotating beers on tap throughout the week.
Hi Dive Lounge is another restaurant in the Westport area that continues to impress those on both sides of the Missouri-Kansas border. The kitchen churns out fresh salads, pasta and sandwiches during lunch service and for dinner guests can find pork chops, vegetable kabobs and a wonderful Penne Bolognese. During the week, the bar hosts a few beer drinking trivia nights, so be prepared with your pop-culture knowledge if you find yourself here!
Vegans in Kansas City couldn't have been happier when the city got its first all-vegan bakery and coffeehouse in 2011. The menu at Mud Pie Vegan Bakery and Coffeehouse is certifiably gluten-free and a hundred percent vegan. The place offers a wide variety of cookies, cupcakes, tarts, muffins, and scones, to name a few. Apart from this, they also serve brilliant coffees and teas that give you a fantastic start of the day.
This pub grub spot is located right on the state line between Kansas and Missouri on Westport Avenue. Inside, the American comfort food menu brings in diners from both states and the affordable prices keep them coming back. Twin City has specials throughout the week, some include All-You-Can-Eat shrimp on weekends and a 10oz. K.C. strip for under 10USD on Tuesdays! Check website for complete menu and other information.
This restaurant is the Kansas City edition based on the original one in Providence, R.I. The original still stands, yet now the conglomerate Darden Restaurants owns it along with many others across the U.S. Here they serve an array of classic steakhouse dishes accompanied with all the sides and of course, seafood. To begin, try the Steak Tartare with the Truffled Egg or the Lobster and Crab Cakes, followed by the North Atlantic Twin Lobster or Kona Crusted Dry Aged Sirloin with Caramelized Shallot Butter as your entree. For dessert, the divine Chocolate Hazelnut Cake and Creme Brulée are classics that never disappoint.
