I was in Kansas City not too long ago and although I didn’t get to explore as much as I would’ve liked, they have some of the best dive bars. I love what’s cooking in KC!

The Hibachi restaurants are phenomenal. I’ve never seen anything like them elsewhere. You’ll be entertained all meal. The entertainment doesn’t detract from the food either – it’s excellent. My wife and I liked the Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse on Wyandotte the best.
