Re: “Firefly Lounge

That's not the right phone number. (816) 298-6477

Re: “The Cook Shack Cafe

Food is consistently average. I go here when I want a basic breakfast joint with no frills. I have only had breakfast here. I think they do a lunch. Coffee is hot, food comes out quick, service is average. I always get biscuits and gravy wherever I go plus eggs and hash browns. The B&GS are OK, they are your standard you would expect at a Mom and Pop place. Definitely worth trying. I go once a month.

Re: “R.G.'s Lounge

New to Independence as of June of 2013, it became my "corner bar". The Pitch article summed the place up pretty accurately. Only now, a few weeks ago, "Bar Rescue" has been there. They eliminated the band stage and dance floor. Dancing is gone.
On the stage, BR placed couches and in your face TV's. Supposedly some type of viewing pod where you and your friends can sit together watching any sporting event of your choice, or play video games together. 'Gonna draw in a younger crowd'. ~Sure it is.
Additionally, there is a fee to use those pods, supposedly more at a "minimum".
BR did upgrade the the 3 pool tables, but otherwise cheap shoddy work seems to be their m.o.. When they broke camp, the Bar Rescue crew left a dumpster or more of trash strewn all across the back parking lot. "Pigs" comes to mind.
They also removed the chairs and tables replacing them with taller stools and high tables. BR did considered the homeless though; they could now come in, buy an inexpensive beer, go sit in one of the stuffed armchairs BR lined the walls with, and then take a nap! Of course, only if they're "younger". *L*
Bar Rescue "claims" the new "BarCode", formerly RG's, will be booming after the the RG's rescue show airs on December 22nd. TWT.
Meanwhile, the once full parking lot on Thursdays and weekends is all but empty. Looking, but is still the "corner bar".
Once 4 stars but now only 2 stars, I gave it three stars because of the nice staff.

Re: “Balanca's -- CLOSED

This was my place for a few years until late 2009 when I decided to retreat from the bars and work on career progression, becoming a home-owner, and advancing in other areas of my life. I remember chasing a purse thief, dancing my ass off Thursday nights, meeting band members, a few regulars, the owner Lori (which was freaking hilarious), and going downstairs-- my favorite part of the bar. My best memories were downstairs and the worst ones were upstairs. *lol* I also saw a lot of things that were crazy (in a bad way) and was even a part of a few of those moments, but I am not surprised it is closed. There seemed to be a lot of police activity there and that kept me away when I wanted to visit almost a year later in 2010. I was driving around between 9th and Main and 39th and Stateline, showing a friend of mine my old haunts and so many places were closed. We drove by the former Balanca's and saw the name had changed... so I came here to confirm it was indeed closed. I plan to check out the new place in December. Woot!

Re: “Thirsty Ernie's -- CLOSED

On normal circumstances I love coming to Thirsty Ernie's. Last weekend.... not good at all. They have 3 servers that are AMAZING....when they are working they keep that bar going. I noticed only one was there ..Chantel which was not herself. She was rude and short with everyone. Not sure if she was upset about something but not her norm. The other two I L-O-V-E...... and make sure I find them when I first walk in to be seated... mel and Evette. Both were not working this past weekend....???????? For the sake of Ernie's only good help left I hope for your own good that these 2 still work for you. Place is a disappointment without them and the quality of service and personality of Chantel and the other 2 who were WORTHLESS and all three are too heavy to be wearing what they do. Proven by only 6 people in your bar Saturday. Friday maybe 12. We usually come in a larger group and our group LOVES evette ,mellisa and chantel The 3 are a true power house and they ROCK. Keep doing what your doing girls.... Your the reason we continue to come in WEEKLY. your customers do notice these things.. Hope you as management understnad that one. God knows these girls keep your bar open. I hope this weekend isnt like last. I hope my girls are there!!! WE MISSED YOU!!!!! we left and went to F & J's..... Sorry Ernie just wasn't worth being there.

Re: “Sabor Centro Americano

I love the food here, but the service is not so good. Is like they do not care if you come back or not. they do not treat you bad but is not attentive. the last 2 visits the order was not right, the first one was to go and the food was not as I ordered. and this last one they took so long for bring our food (and was not really busy) and never brought all the drinks (and the owner was there chatting with clients/friends). I went to tell the only waitress that the drinks were not complete, never got it. And when I paid she was mad because I asked separate tickets and even made a face to me. Really I like the food, do not like the service. It is sad that the owner is there and is not helping her to give a better service.

Re: “The Roxy

Love and hate this bar. the beer selection has improved, as have the beer prices - so that's a plus. The bartenders are typically good, waitresses are not. The bar is often loaded with too many drunk locals, and bartenders don't cut off very drunk people in time, they just keep serving. I've seen several fights break out here. Locals are bascially idiots. Lowbrow druggie clientele on some nights. Bathrooms were rebuilt a year or two back, which helped. Weekdays are your best bet for drink bargains, because the place is packed on weekends. It's a true dive bar with live music on weekends, karaoke during the week.

Re: “Denim and Diamonds

Crowded, lots of line dances and people of the older generation. Expensive drinks and cruddy bathrooms. But other than that, a lot of fun! Great for kicking back and letting loose. Good food and pool. Clean.

Re: “Hamburger Mary's

I would be happy to give them 4 stars, as their food is good, but be prepared for the slow and spotty service. I have eaten there 10 - 15 times (they are very conveniently located for me at lunchtime) since they opened, but I don't go more often because it takes so long. Also, there are not many lowfat options - lots of deliciously unhealthy ones though!

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: “Aftershock

As a rough-neck roadhouse, the bar is what it is, but to be credible as a live-music venue, they need to fix the sound system. Every time we've been there, the sound system sucks. There is a nearly constant, loud buzz (imagine florescent light hooked up to an amp), annoying no matter what your musical preference. Sound guy couldn't get vocals to come through to save his soul from Donny Osmond.

Re: “Grinders West

Far and above the best cheesesteaks in the city. While the menu is extensive, it is overpriced. The portions are moderately sized and don't let you leave feeling full. The service is fine when the restaurant isn't crowded, but when it is busy the service is terrible - they are inattentive, do not let you know ahead of time when certain items will take longer to prepare (read: cheesesteaks when they have many orders), and bring you cold soup. Overall a fun place to eat, as long as you order the right things and come at the right time.
