“KC is known for BBQ and this is the closest good bbq joint. This is also located in Zona Rosa, a shopping complex north of us on I-29 at Barry Road. Order the crispy meat or burnt ends and try their beans and cheesy corn. ”

“Bonnie is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the birthplace of this "premium chicken" chain, so she's got a soft spot for it. New to KC as of summer 2016, the Westport location stays open late to accommodate the nightlife crowd. Cane's entire menu is chicken fingers, fries, Texas toast, and coleslaw, with an addictive dipping sauce. Don't forget the lemonade, and don't check the calorie counts.”

“Shake Shack sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. The cart was quite the success, with Shack fans lined up daily for three summers. 100% all-natural Angus beef, vegetarian fed, humanely raised and source verified. No hormones or antibiotics – EVER. We pride ourselves on sourcing incredible ingredients from like-minded artisanal producers.”

“The Peanut is a KC favorite for wings, and it's our favorite! Don't make the newbie mistake of ordering a dozen... my husband and I suggest 6. Be prepared, the wings will take about 40 minutes, it's a really popular place. Go hungry, but order some cheese fries to tide you over. You won't regret it!”
