Re: “Adrian's Cafe

Excellent made to order deli-type sandwiches. My only complaint is that they close WAY too early if you're wanting a quick sandwich for dinner.

Re: “Jerry's Bait Shop -- CLOSED

Just a bar. We went there for something different but it was nothing special. Started out with soup and it was really good . The motel advertisment said voted #1 pizza in KC. So we ordered the all meat large. BIG MISTAKE! Wow we each couldn't even finish 1 piece. It came to the table smelling like garlic. Which can be ok but after taking a bite the taste had way to much pepper and it also was only half cooked. We paid the bill but shouldnt have and left. Went to steak and shake instead. Wasted evening.

Re: “54th Street Grill and Bar

When they first opened this 54th ST. location on NE Barry Rd. near Liberty, it was one of only a few restaurants in that area. Now it's very built up with many choices. Many have come and several have gone in the past 10 years. The 54th St. seems to attract the shoppers from the near by strip malls and Wal-Mart. In the early years, this 54th ST. was at least OK, nothing special, but decent enough and closer to Kearney where we live than most other restaurants. But we stopped going there after a waiter, botched our large group order. Example: "Oh you wanted the salad before your meal?" Complaining only got us a gift certificate for $10. off the next visit. No thanks. On an earlier trip, our waiter asked us to give him his tip before we were done, because he was ending his shift. Amazing! To be fair, the Liberty area is service worker challenged. and good help is hard to find and harder to keep given the low wages and poor management in many of these corporate chain boxes. The food at 54th St. is similar to other family American fare style boxes like Appplebee's, etc. We usually opt for The Corner Cafe which is a few feet away from the 54th St. location.

Re: “54th Street Grill and Bar

This place by far is the worst i've been too in years. My steak was nuked, i asked for medium and i got a well done hockey puck, my bbq chicken breast was a flimsy little piece of flash frozen chicken like the tenderbird brand with cheap ole kraft bbq sauce on it, and the worst part it was cold when i finally got my order. The ranch dressing for salads is awful as well. The servers sound like they are reading from a card and always ask if you want dessert every time they come to the table in hopes they can sell you something else. The place is over priced for the amounts you get also. I'll never go back.

Re: “Cafe Augusta

First the food was horrible, I order the Jerk Steak , very dry I left most of it on the plate. Then the service was horrible , we waited for everything too long the waiter kept apologizing for the horrible service. At the end of the meal their POS system went down several times. My wife had to leave so we would not be late picking up our child from practice. Then they had the nerve to charge me a automatic tip of 20%. And last but not least they charged me several times because their POS system was broken and when I called them about it , they made it my responsiblity said I will have to go to my bank to get this corrected. So please don't go there Don't waste your time or money.

Re: “O'Malley's 1842 Irish Pub

It's a wonderful, authentic Irish pub close to KC. Great atmosphere, music and beer. I visit every time I'm back in KC.

Re: “The Peanut

The Peanut is the BEST restaurant in Kansas City!!! Cheap prices, great food, fun atmosphere. I would never order a tuna sandwich here, first mistake lady. BLTs and hot wings is where its at and of course a pitcher of Bud light :-) Drooling thinking about all the memories of that restaurant.

Re: “DiCarlo's Mustard Seed Mexican-Americana Restaurant & Bar

If you are just dying to try the worst shit that Mexico produces and have no desire to taste an authentic recipe from Mexico... then by all means, try out this dump on 40 highway. It's not even near the Westside where all of the Mexican community lives. It's an abomination to Mexican food and should be considered armed and dangerous with food poisoning. DO NOT ever go near a shit hole slum like this place unless you have a death wish.

Re: “Cracker Barrel

Breakfast is always good. Two favorites are blacken grilled fish served with bread and butter pickles. Meatloaf is about the best next to Grandma's. Homemade melt in your mouth croutons.

Re: “Old Shawnee Pizza

Best pizza around. The the 1 star reviewer. Did you not look at the menu? Pricing is right there. Nobody to blame but yourself. Sure, its a few extra bucks compared to a lot of the shitty places around, but i'm happy to pay for the quality.

Re: “The Cashew

Owners are worthless pieces of shit who screw every employee that has ever worked there. Management also fucks every new girl that works there. Yes, every SINGLE manager. I hope some of your wives read this. The owner Shane is a raging tool who runs one of the shadiest bars ever. Hey, at least he gets laid regularly. Also, some girls claim that he has given them herpes. Think about working here ladies. Also, notice on craigslist that they are ALWAYS hiring. That should not be a good sign. Turnover is the sign that maybe it's not the employees ALL the time? It is the management to claim at this dump. Also, Shane's dad Mort is a total thief as well. Fuck you cashew.

Re: “d'Bronx

They still have the best pizza and sandwiches, but the redecorating is BORING. It used to be my favorite restaurant because it had charisma and was out of the ordinary.
I can understand them needing to clean it up a bit, but boring decor in Midtown? NOT smart.

Re: “The Cashew

Unfortuantly we has a similar experieince days before! To those interested in having an event or a wedding reception at 2000 Grand (The Cashew) please think twice! My Husband and I loved the Cashew. We loved the space, the view, the food was awesome, and they were flexible dealing with us all the way up to the wedding. It seemed to be the perfect spot to have an all inclusive downtown reception with an urban feel that had competing prices to other similar spaces. The problems we had occurred more after the wedding and with management. During the event it was HOT! They say the air conditioner was working which if this was true it was completely inadequate. With all the people in the space and all the windows it was burning up! All my guest on one side of the room were sweating and several of our older family members ended up having to leave early due to the heat. They did try to correct the situation by putting out large industrial fans that helped the heat but completely took away from the décor I had been working on for months prior. The second issue we dealt with was the freight elevator, which was the only access to the space except for three flights of stairs. At some point during the night the freight elevator broke which we were assured would work to help w people with disabilities which included my father, who paid for the event! Instead of trying to compensate for the elevator being broken they chose to ignore it and we were to figure out an exit strategy on our own. Not only were family members that needed assistance not able to leave the reception safely all the decorations we had brought for the reception also had to be carried down the stairs. They didn’t help with this until they were inconvenienced because people were going through the bar area with supplies. Management failed to provide alternative plans or help with either situation. These things could have been smoothed over easily because in the end we had a good time, but once mentioned to management a week after we were met with defense. The event coordinator was very apologetic and recognized the wrongs that occurred, but according to her, the owner and manager saw it very differently! Instead of offering some kind of concessions they put it all back on us and made some extreme and untrue accusations! This place is by no means cheap and we expected it to be perfect and when it wasn’t there was no real apology made. Only after meeting with them and much deliberation did they begrudgingly offer a gift card to the place. At this point it was too late; if they had offered this immediately we would have felt differently. The tactics they used to defend not offering any compensation were completely unprofessional and insulting. Please be aware of their poor customer service and lack of attention to customer satisfaction (more so with the owner and management) before booking this space!

Re: “The Brooksider

There is a group of us ladies that went to Rockhurst years a go that have mostly all just recently moved back to the area. Our hangout was Mikes on Troost and then Hoopers, until we found the downstairs at the Brooksider. The bartender was Nathan, or Nate Dogg. He made the place, he knew everyone's name was always happy to see you and was a master at creating a party atmosphere. He left for awhile for another bar and the place tanked hard. He came back and the party was back and he even turned the basement into a dance club that felt like a keg party. We miss him and would like to know if anyone knows if he is bartending around town or if the Brooksider could bring him back even if it is just for a reunion weekend.

Re: “Dos de Oros

I have tried a lot of Mexican restaurants and this one is without a doubt the best! The owener is the cook and his wife serves. The food is authentic and a great value. Everything on the menu is so good it is hard to choose but I think my personal favorite is the steak alambres followed closely by the chicken and spinach enchalidas. They serve real beans instead of the paste you get at most Mexican places. Go for the fried cheesecake if nothing else, you'll be glad you did. Great food, great prices and friendly people, what more could you ask for!

Re: “The Peanut

By far our worst Kansas City restaurant experience. Period. I ordered the Tuna salad sandwich on "toasted wheat." Simply put, the sandwich was soggy when it arrived, and they just slapped on cold shredded cheese. I would have been fine to just say "I didn't care for their version of the tuna salad," until the waitress first took offense that I said I didn't care for it. Then she brought the check, and demanded that I still pay for the sandwich, which I did not eat. I was dumbfounded, as this was the first restaurant EVER that I've been too that was requiring me to pay for an item we neither enjoyed nor ate. I would have ordered something in place, but was not given a chance. Unfortunately, this was a terribly bad experience for my wife and I to have on her lunch break.
