Kansas City is known for great food, and we’re lucky to live in a city with so many restaurant options original to the area. Next time you’re looking for a new spot to eat, try one of these! We’re including a few of our favorite menu items to get you started, too!
Carmen’s Café: You can’t go wrong with the lobster or chicken spiedini. Walk around Brookside before or after your meal to complete an evening out!
Garozzo’s Ristorante: With multiple locations, this KC favorite is easily accessible! The chicken spiedini is a must!
Jack Stack: A Kansas City tradition since 1957. We love the ambiance at the Martin City location and suggest the burnt ends.
KC Grill ‘N Kabob: Enjoy your favorite chargrilled kabob at this Lenexa restaurant. Try the chicken and beef combo kabobs!
La Bodega: From the ambiance to the sangria and tapas, La Bodega is fun for a date night or dinner with friends. Be sure to have the roasted mushrooms and the beef tenderloin with Spanish blue cheese!
Lidia’s: Located just north of historic Union Station, this gem offers a warm, farmhouse feel. Order the pasta trio or pork shoulder.
Smokin’ Joe’s BBQ: Located in Olathe at 519 E. Santa Fe offers a rustic atmosphere and down-home service. Get the ribs!
