The Grain Bin Restaurant

Reviewed By Shalley1 - Kansas City

Arrived 20 minutes before closing and the place was packed. Housed in an old building on Main Street. Down home food, huge portions, very moderate prices. Breakfast served until closing, no credit cards. What warmed my heart was the presence of a space for food donations going to the local pantry. Do you like chicken fried steak? You'll be happy, then.

What a great hang out for high schoolers and college age. Enjoyed Julianna Zobrist in concert here. Didn't have a drink, but I hear the Stairway to Heaven is the drink to have. They bring in christian bands as well as operate a radio station. Wish Kansas City was closer!

If you don't get there by 7 a.m. You will be disappointed.. Cinnamon rolls don't seem to have enough filling. Very doughy and dry. Apple fritters are great if you are an early riser and can get there before the limited supply runs out.

El Pueblito

This place is on the north side of town - plenty of room for a big group - multiple rooms within the place. Food is good and priced right - pork enchilada's and chicken taco's would be my recommendations.

They defiantly serve the best burgers in town! You will not walk out feeling hungry! Large portions. They also have a breakfast menu. They are reasonably priced, not dollar menu. Every dime you spend is worth it. Hubs and I usually split fries. They do take to go orders.

Decided to give this kind of barbecue a try and I'm glad I did. Good taste! Friendly staff who worked with me and asked what I like and if it was my first time trying Billy Sims BBQ. They helped me choose and told me to please come back. I probably will before I leave town.

It was just average Mexican food and actually we had hoped to go to El Pueblito but it wasn't open that night. My advice is to give this restauarnt a pass in favor of the other. No margaritas available here either! Huh, won't be back

Mel's Southside Tavern

Reviewed By luvcarrib - Kernersville, North Carolina

Just had a group of 30, reserved in advance, last night there. Waitresses skipped around taking orders. She didn't understand zin or chardonnay, so brought a wine list to point to. Orders were delivered haphazard by yelling who had the burger. After two hours and other orders finished, we inquired and was told, umm, give them 5 minutes. I cancelled our order. Since they didn't have our ticket, and they refused to comp two glasses of wine, we had to go through the wine list again. I think the staff was not trained, new or overwhelmed

PlayMakers

Reviewed By ALS2009 - Dallas, Texas

They recently remodeled and even got a new menu. I was hopeful, but after trying it, I am not going back. The wings were dry. There was plenty of sauce on the outside, the meat on the wings was so dry and tough. The Grand Slam nachos were horrible. I got the "beef" but I swear it was soft dog food and the "cheese" sauce was cheese soup. Disgusting. The service was not good. Fairly friendly, but not with it at all. SLOW. Don't waste your money at this place. Go to Daltons or Horizons.
