Re: “The Boobie Trap Bar

It's a dive, no doubt about it but the beer is super cold the people are friendly and Brian Chambers (the owner) is a huge supporter of local music. One of my favorite places to go catch a show. Well worth the drive!

Re: “The Jerusalem Café

It is not often a restaurant does more than provide good food and good service. Considering myself a bit of a foodie, I dine often, and expect the utmost service and quality; however, one local spot went so above and beyond at a recent dining experience I felt compelled to share.

Having just completed an art class, two friends and I were looking for a good meal a bit off the beaten path. Something we didn’t have everyday and was a good local spot. We decided on Jerusalem Cafe, for some great food. We had all been here several times before and enjoyed it immensely. The hummus, baba ganoush, and dolmas we ordered as an appetizer were simply delectable. Warm pita bread accompanied the sample appetizer platter. Conversation came to a halt as moans and groans of pure delight echoed from our table. The quiet dimly lit restaurant was surely bothered by the sounds of joy coming from our table.

Then came the main course. We had each ordered some sort of pita sandwich, two of us the gyro, and one shawarmah chicken. Again, our conversation stopped and the cacophony of happy eating continued.

Then the noises from our table turned, and turned quickly. My friend yelled in a panic to call 911, as his wife shook uncontrollably, her eyes seemingly rolling back. Screams came from across the restaurant, other patrons starred as we quickly tried to figure out what was going on. The convulsions lasted for what seemed like hours, but really only minutes.

Within a few more minutes the fire fighters and EMTs arrived, completely disrupting this quiet, dimly lit establishment. Service halted while everyone starred to see if she was alright. “A seizure”, the paramedic said, “we need to take her to the hospital.“ Time continued to move slowly, and all focus stayed on my friend. Our server and the manager both quickly jumping to do whatever we needed. The EMTs loaded her up and off to the hospital we went.

Once the chaos had calmed and the doctors assured us she would be okay, we breathed. And then it dawned on me. We had walked out on our tab, something none of us had ever done before. The next day I went back, looking to thank our server and the manager as well as pay our debt. I met the most gracious manager. He immediately recognized me and said “is she okay.” I replied yes, and that I needed to pay our tab. He refused. He said, “Just make sure she is okay, this one is on us.”

Too often we go through life and are disappointed by the compassion people share. For us, that Wednesday evening we experienced great compassion that will not be forgotten. The food, always fantastic, the ambiance exactly what we wanted, but more than that a place we truly feel treats its customers as neighbors, not clients.

Thank you Jeresualem Cafe. We look forward to our next, hopefully less eventful, visit.

Re: “Little Richard’s Family Restaurant

My family and I have been eating at Little Richards for over 5 yrs. I have never found any hair "Kinky" or otherwise in my food. To the above rater- Get a LIFE! The food is and always been Great. The Owner and staff make everyone feel like family. I always tease the waitresses asking for "Bourbon" for my drink order.
The restaurant was recently re-decorated by a run away car. It took a while to get reopened after that one.

Re: “Longboards

Every time I pull that toothpick and peel back that foil, I get tingliness in my man bits. Mainly because the bulk of the girls there are hot (see previous rating), but also because the food there is an explosion of heaven in my mouth, and sometimes all over my face. CKB, beoyotch!

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: “Tortilla Flats

Our favorite Tex-Mex food. At least in our estimation they don't try for 'authentic' Mexican, but the serve a VERY tasty variety along with excellent drinks. We've been going for several years. Darned shame they lost the Riverside location (close to us); but they're worth the trip.

Re: “Tortilla Flats

Well they can't get a real reviewer to cover them so I thought I had better share one of the best kept secrets in the Northland. Tortilla Flats is great. They have the best deep fried tacos and simply the best Fish Taco plate I have ever had. They have expanded their menu and have great mexican pizzas. My vegetarian friend loves the veggie quesadilla too. My husband eats the Hectorito EVERY week. It's seasoned grilled chicken & steak with pico de gallo & beans wrapped in a tortilla. Truthfully, I have never had anything I didn't like here. We love it!!

Re: “Vee's Sweets and Treats

I am a regular customer of Vee's and I am never disappointed. It does not matter if I am getting a sandwich, chicken noodle soup or a slice of cake!!!
When my daughter is sick, the only thing she wants is Vee's soup. Once you try anything, you will be back.
