    Kansas City Eats

    Well I broke down and bought my wife tickets to see Bon Jovi in Kansas City (it's a secret so if you know her, keep it quiet). We'll stay at the Marriott downtown, and the concert's at the Sprint Center. Any recommendations for places to eat down in that area.

    The Power and Light District is right across the street from the Sprint Center. It has several nice bars and restaurants. Check it out here...

    If you really want to impress her and spend some coin, take her to the Savoy Grill. You won't be disappointed.

    Re: Kansas City Eats

    Fiorella's Jack Stack in the freight district (across from Union Station, right next to downtown)...it's a very nice BBQ place and they have great prime rib...I've never had anything there I didn't like.

    There are quite a few places to eat in the P&L, I personally like Gordon Biersch and the Bristol (seafood)...

    I'm telling you though, Jack Stack is the place to go...I've taken numerous out of towners there and they all loved it...and get the Crown Prime Ribs...they're 3 huge ribs that look like dinosaur bones...awesome...

    If she doesn't mind eating at a Gas Station, try Oklahoma Joe's. I have to go to this place every time I'm in KC.
    3002 W 47th Ave Kansas City, KS 66103
    It's 10 min south of downtown (approx) but its worth every second.

    My brother in law absolutely RAVES about this place - haven't tried it yet.

    Re: Kansas City Eats

    When it comes to BBQ I'm more of a Jack Stack/Gates guy over Arthur Bryants.

    Here;s a vote for Jack Stack. Crown Prime is OUTSTANDING.

    I have eaten at the one in Olathe, it is great, and I hear the original is even better.

    Also, if you have the chance, Arthur Bryants is fantastic. Go for lunch to the original.

    Re: Kansas City Eats

    Jack Stack for sure, not as greasy as Arthur Bryants.

    There is a huge Irish bar in the P&L that has live music sometimes.

    Go to Gordon Biersch for a few brews before you head back to the hotel.

    I had the rib sampler at Jack Stack about a month ago. Lamb, Beef and Pork ribs - amazing.

    Re: Kansas City Eats

    Anyone know of any good places to go that also have food for vegitarians? My brother & his wife are visiting there later this year and have been vegs for about 6 years - so unless these BBQ restaurants can BBQ some Boca Burgers, they might have some troubles.
