A new place for Sunday fried chicken dinner (Update)

Update: The fried chicken dinner that was the featured in this week's "Where Am I Eating?" post garnered some very good comments, but none of them actually pinpointed the actual restaurant: Backfire BBQ in the Legends Entertainment Complex in Kansas City, Kansas. Chicken is only available on Sundays, but that's also the day the venue offers fried chicken and homemade waffles.



Original story: For some Kansas City diners, it just isn't Sunday unless there's a big fried chicken dinner involved -- a tradition that may date back to the glory years of the legendary old Wishbone Restaurant and its long-razed contemporaries (among them the Green Parrot, Mrs. Peters Chicken Dinners and the Victor Hugo Restaurant). Only Stroud's remains from that era.

But a new restaurant in the metro is serving fried chicken -- on Sundays only -- that one fanatic I know just crows about: crunchy fried bird served with mashers, very good gravy, Texas toast, and Grandma-style green beans for $10.95.

What restaurant serves this dinner?
