Visited FIrst Watch today and just had to have the Traditional Breakfast for lunch. I really like the scrambled eggs, bacon, seasoned potatoes, and artisan toast. ITs really tasty. We also had the Veggie burger. Service is great even when they’re busy. Use the No Wait app to reserve your place in line.

Christopher Elbow Artisanal Chocolates

Reviewed By redtentgal - eldon, mo

The art, I mean chocolate, is almost too lovely to eat...but you should savor it anyway. Painstaking care and creativity go into each and every morsel. The flavor combinations and unique appearance are delightful....great gift potential here! Anything coffee/espresso is divine. My hubby favors the liquor flavorings and my daughters love the bananas foster and the strawberry balsamic. Enjoy!

Donut King

Reviewed By epirotiki - kansas city

Donut King is in a little strip mall off of a very busy intersection on Armour Rd. There is ample parking otu front. The only draw back is getting back on Armour going again going east. Likely someone will have to let you in. Cerner employees command the near east land. But the variety and quality of the donuts and the friendliness of the staff make this a must stop. I always try a new flavor - cream cheese iced red velvet was my last choice. German chocolate was my previous choice.There is a bit of seating inside and outside. Most donuts run about a dollar.

Chappell's Restaurant & Sports Museum

Reviewed By KearneyCat - Kearney, MO.

We don’t live near Chappells, but we enjoy the food, service, and the sports decor when we can get there. Today my wife liked the Steak soup and half sandwich and my fish and chip were quite good as well. Now the but.....Chappell’s always runs Groupons deals. That is what causes us to drive 20 miles to have a good lunch. But their guest internet doesn’t ever work so you get to stand outside in the cold so your coupon will come up. Please fix the internet for the customers that buy your Groupons. Our bill after Groupon was $5.22. I gave the server a $10 and she brought me $4.00. I guess she thought the $.78 was hers for the keeping. I hate it when servers are dishonest. It was not a mistake it’s petty theft. Servers do this too often thinking older people won’t notice. I did leave a tip but deducted the $.78.

Reviewed By julieandabbe - Saginaw, Michigan

Met with friends. Very casual, order at a window, good variety, including local brews. I had the smoked chicken adding ‘Kansalino’ sauce from table that was good. Cheesy corn good choice for side. A friend had brisket and burnt ends and she said it was good. We didn’t have any but it was mentioned their smoke Turkey is good too.

SLAP's BBQ

Slap's BBQ (Squeal Like a Pig) opened in June of 2014 and started with just a few hundred pounds of meat. After running out within a few hours, we knew Slap's was going to be a major success. As the weeks went on, we added more and more meat to the daily production finally reaching our capacity and comfort level a couple months after opening. We sell out every day because we are committed cooking fresh and putting the best BBQ on the plate we can. Slap's BBQ is one of very few restaurants in the City that is actively competing on the KCBS circuit throughout the year. On average we compete in 25-35 contests each season. We do this to stay sharp, relevant, and because we love it. Try our famous ribs and burnt ends that always run out within our first hour, or our imported Texas sausage to get a mouthful of amazing flavor. Although we try to serve as many customers as possible, we're only open until we run out daily so be sure to get here early! For finger lickin' goodness, we'll see you at Slap's!

The burnt ends melted in my mouth. They have a culinary concoction called Baked Potato Casserole that is not to be missed. I want to go back right now just to have that again. The feel of the restaurant was urban rustic. We sat at a community table with a couple and their baby. I wanted to love the cheesy corn and I will likely try it again but I do not know if it can survive in the shadow of that baked potato casserole.

They made our 20th wedding anniversary very special with a nice card. The appetizers were yummy. Highly recommend this spicy and sweet bacon strips appetizers. The steaks were very scrumptious.

Tay's Burger Shack

Reviewed By Eggbert10 - Chattanooga, Tennessee

We read reviews before trying this location. Some of them indicated that this location was kind of “a shack”. The building is not much to look at but the inside was clean and friendly staff. We all had the double burger combo meal. The patties are fairly thin. They reminded me of a Steak and Shake burger. They were very good burgers. I don’t have the receipt with me, but for three double burger meals (fries and a drink) was close to $40.

Cafe Gratitude

Reviewed By 230ml - Tempe, Arizona

Had the pleasure today of hitting up a really cool vegan restaurant called Cafe Gratitude. Located in the regentrified section of downtown Kansas City. Nestled among old brick buildings that have been reborn as luxury lofts,it would be very east to drive or walk right by the cafe. Although you can see can sense the up scale new life of a once less lively section of downtown, the area is not pretentious at all.
Upon entry the whole vibe is like being outdoors in a park. I sat at the bar (they serve beer and wine) to pick up my Togo order. I was greeted by Luke, at the bar. Among many things, what impressed most about him was the way he spoke to me about the place..with pride and ownership. This for me, said a lot about the management and also Luke's humane temperament. It was refreshing.
I ordered Magical, Luminous, Warm Hearted and Eternally Youthful. Yes, this is how the food items are listed on the menu. Eternally Youthful was my vanilla milkshake, Warm Hearted is a polenta entree, Luminous is salad with sweet potatoes, quinoa, nuts, avocado among lots of other goodies. And Magical is a homemade veggie burger. Although I hadn't planned to, I ate everything in one sitting. Couldn't stop myself. Great textually and delicious. This will definitely be a place I'll revisit when I return here.
At the bottom of my receipt I noticed a question - What are you grateful for?
Cafe Gratitude offers food for body and mind. Pretty nice!

Chicken N Pickle

Chicken N Pickle is a chef-driven, casual eatery & bar with pickleball courts, shaded beer gardens and backyard games. The idea was first conceived in the Grand Cayman Islands over cold beer and jerk chicken. This love of wood-fired rotisserie coupled with a Northlander's fondness of pickleball resulted in a new, two acre food & entertainment venue. Chicken N Pickle, complete with a rotating clutch of Food Trucks, delivers an all-inclusive experience with a locally rooted vibe perfect for those with a fondness for sports and a love of the outdoors. Good Food. Good Friends. Great Fun.

Reviewed By mpiorier - Kansas City, Missouri

This is one of the few venues that you can count on for a good time no matter what your group looks like. The food is above average at a good price. The atmosphere, especially in warmer weather, has no comparison. Most importantly, it is the perfect place to have fun with family, friends, coworkers or impress that special someone!
