Must eat places in KC? Need some suggestions.

Please, please, please go to Q39. I cannot stress how incredible it is. I take my kids there...we all absolutely love it. It's a bit nicer than Gates, Joes or Bryants and soooooo worth it.

KC ~ did all the posters move?

Ok, Vietnamese - Vietnam Cafe in Columbus Park - must try! Chinese - we like Red Snapper on Ward Parkway. Also, ABC Cafe has dim sum and people seem to like it - never been personally. OP has a good farmers market as does Brookside and City Market is always good.

BBQ this Sunday in Kansas City--help please

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Q39. The food is excellent - these are BBQ competition people, they know what they're doing! It's nicer than the "classics" - and I love that about it. It's totally authentic.

Where AreYou, K.C.?

Char Bar and q39 are both excellent for BBQ - a little spendier than say Gates but it's quality. Baked in Kansas City for their Ham and Gruyere croissant - I crave these, it's bad. We tried Jax and weren't impressed - very pricey for what you get. They cooked our shrimp to DEATH. My latest thoughts.

McGonigle's Market for brisket BBQ sanwich,yay or nay??? [KC]

BBQ not far from TJ's is The Stack http://thestackbbq.net/ - you could grab a great, quick sandwich there. Costco on Linwood is 5 miles from Woodyard BBQ if that's what you're referring to. I LOVE Woodyard. You could check Sheridan's Unforked in OP for a burger.

Girls weekend in Kansas City. HELP

La Bodega for tapas also - fun, louder. Chuys (mexican) is kitchy - on the Plaza. Food is ok but the place is really fun. There's a piano bar in the Power & Light district - Howl at the Moon.

Things that Kansas City does better than NYC?!?

check out Bier Station while you're here - it's a a great craft beer spot with tons of bottles/can and an ever changing tap list updated here: http://www.drafster.com/bars/bier_sta...

their food menu is small but strong - sausages/brats made locally from Affare as well bread/pretzels made locally by Farm to Market. They have a nice charcuterie selection and they also serve wine.

Chow-ish food recs KC, MO

any of these places you will taste the smoke. and, yes, burnt ends is a KC thing for sure. i can totally throw a wrench into things and suggest Woodyard BBQ in Merriam, KS - http://woodyardbbq.com/ - i kinda love that place. great outdoor seating under trees, just a lot of character. the "experience" at LC's is tough for me too - bars on the windows and no ambience. burnt ends? to die for.

Any good sushi recommendations in KC area?

Kokoro Maki House in Waldo - also not open on Sunday. And Domo in Brookside. Give those a shot. We like Jun's too.

Chow-ish food recs KC, MO

nope, they're not. coincidence? OK Joe's is in a gas station - funky place. Jack Stack is more of a fine dining experience. I like both but for a nicer dinner would steer more towards Jack Stack. you will enjoy lidia's - chef swinney is a friend of mine. if you can do lunch bbq, i really like danny edwards.

concur with all - bb's is awesome for beer, blues and bbq. the district pour house just opened but is getting good buzz - in waldo on wornall & almost 72nd. good cocktails, good food. http://www.pitch.com/FastPitch/archiv...

another neat place - bier station also in waldo. gregory and rockhill - http://www.bierstation.com/ - highly recommend.

lidia's is always a solid pick.

Cheap eats and donuts in KC

Grinders would be convenient - Bread for Life is a great spot, too. Grinders is more of a bar scene - no alcohol at Bread for Life. Donuts - Lamar's on Main is close to where you're staying but for a total throwback experience I recommend John's Space Age Donuts at 8124 Floyd in Overland Park. New Peking Chinese is right around the corner from the Q - great chinese. Another thought for breakfast is Beignet's - http://beignetkc.com/Home_Page.html.

Cheap eats and donuts in KC

Where will you be staying? Grinders is kind of a cool place - in the midtown area. There's an east side which has great pizza, cheesesteaks and lots of character - the west side is a little bit nicer but I believe you can order food off of either menu. Donuts will also depend on the area of town you're staying in. Let me know. www.grinderspizza.com

Southern Indian: KC?

Best Chinese in KC area

you should try Red Snapper - the owners of that used to own Peking in Westport. i'd imagine if you asked for heads off shrimp, etc they'd be happy to do it. Red Snapper is 84th and Ward Parkway in a small shopping center area. it's our favorite having lived in NYC and other metro areas.

NY Style pizza in KC?

oh girl, i know how you feel. we can eat pizza every other day - used to live in NY. our favorite pizza here is Pizza 51. they have slices, enormous slices but i like to just order a whole pizza - cheese. it's pretty close. it's delish.

i forgot to mention one of my all time faves and what i consider a true gem - Cafe Sebastienne - located inside of the kemper musuem...Chef Jennifer Maloney is amazing.

Dinner in Kansas City, MO

Staying at the Rapheal, I would point you in the direction of Bluestem - arguably one of the best restaurants in KC. The Rieger, Tannin or Le Fou Frog are also great choices. I, personally, am not a fan of Aixois. Julian....I want to love but I'm just not there yet.

Oklahoma Joe's french fries ... are there better fries in/around Kansas City?

driftwood bbq truck fries may rival OK Joes.

B-R-G-R or Blanc? [Kansas City]

i also like both. i guess we tend to go to BRGR more b/c we're a family of 5 and it may be a tad cheaper. but i've alway enjoyed meals at both. i think burger to burger...blanc may have a small edge. so if you're going for the actual burger....blanc. inside out burger is amazing.
