Best Dinner Under $5 

Harold's Drive Inn

Harold's is one of the city's last 1950s-style "drive-ins," where customers pull into a parking lot, go inside and order at the counter, then take their food someplace else to eat. The little white building with the red trim has been a fixture in downtown Kansas City since 1958, although Harold McBain sold the place two years ago to Nancy Smith, who hasn't changed a thing. In addition to burgers, tenderloins, chili dogs and hot dogs, Harold's serves seven kinds of "box dinners." The crispy hot Italian steak sandwich, smothered in tomato sauce and thickly laden with pickles, onion and provolone on a yeasty roll, goes for $4.80 (with cole slaw, potato chips and a medium drink). A two-piece fried chicken dinner with slaw and french fries, however, will set you back $5.14. Harold's has milkshakes, too, because there's nothing more refreshing with a deluxe ham-and-cheese than a frosty pineapple malted.
