As far as BBQ this will be argued all day and night but I am a big fan of Rosedale BBQ by Suthwest Blvd. I think its gets left out to much...good stuff...

All you need to know about KC BBQ is here:
http://www.georgeblowfish.com/BBQ.html
Steaks? Did you say steaks???
Golden Ox next to Kemper Arena;
or
Hereford House
20th? (I think) and Main, just North of Crown Center
Majestic Steak House (an old speak easy from the 20's, very cool)
Just north of Bartle Hall about two or three blocks on Main;
Savoy Grill, again just North of Bartle Hall on 9th St: This was one of Harry Truman's favorite restaurants...been there forever.
On bucks: Savoy, really expensive;
Majestic, pretty expensive,
Golden Ox and Hereford House, both fairly reasonable.
You really can't go wrong with any of these places. Bon Appetit...dude.

There are several great BBQ joints in KC, I guess it all depends on preference and where you are within the city. In the Northland, I prefer Snokehouse BBQ, it's very good and very reasonable. South f the river Oklahoma Joe's and Smokestack are my favs.

For steak, the Hereford House is pretty good and the Plaza III rocks. If I were you I would head to the plaza-there's several great restaurants with lots of variety.http://www.dineoutinkc.com/plaza3/

GB, great page...I had no idea you put that together. Very impressive.

Good call on getting Rosedale's name out there. I think it is very good and very underappreciated around the KC area.

Also for great home-cookin' I would highly recommend Stroud's-they have the best chicken I have ever tasted. Another home-cookin' place is the corner cafe. Good stuff!!

Just on the weekends- during the week it's pretty easy to get a table. The weekends are a nightmare unless you go before 6:00.

Are you still selling truck parts?

Are you still selling truck parts? Yeah... been there for just over 3 years now. GM, Volvo, Freightliner, Cat, Cummins.. etc etc... If you need a deal on parts for that Grand Am let me know... I'll get you parts at the employee price.

(We deal in all GM products... light duty too)

The original Garrozzos is located at 7th St. and Brooklyn Ave. If you choose to eat there, eat very little that day before you go. You will be absolutely stuffed! Garrozzos has opened up other restaurants around town, so there may be one near where you'll be staying. Don't have the other addy's, tho.

Another Italian place that gets good reviews is Cascones in the Northland. It's at 35th and North Oak. Not a bad place either. Personally, I'd go with Garrozos, but you really can't go wrong.

I'm from Upstate NY where the Italian is incredible.
Coming to KC and eating Italian is like going to Amsterdam and skipping the hash bars and Red Light District.
Pass on the Italian in KC and take the advice of BCF..check out Strouds.
Strouds food is like good sex...gets you all sleepy and you need a cigarette afterwards.
I'm definitely a huge fan of the Majestic too. The environment is awesome.

Food is just about as good and the wait isn't as bad.

Since you live in California you should visit one of your local steakhouses. Cali has several in the top ten:

Im not from KC, but I do get down there quite a bit. Forget anything but BBQ. Gates, JackStacks and Arthur Bryants are all way too good to pass up for food you can get anywhere. Make sure to get some beans for me at JackStacks! HAHA.

I left KC about thirteen years ago and believe me, there's a HUGE difference between California beef and KC beef. The Cal beef is very dry, unflavorful and needs a massive amount of marination and spices to even be edible. The beef from the KC stockyards is absolutely incredible and practically melts in your mouth. If you want a great steak, check out some of the local KC steakhouses (though I'd avoid the national chains like Capitol Grille or Ruth's Chris). I'm just not a chain restaurant guy.

And despite what Brando says (nothing personal, hombre), Garozzo's is an excellent choice for Italian food. Again, most of the Italian food in California is Northern Italian, but NY & most KC Italian (minus the chains like Buca Di Peppo and others) are authentic Sicilian, though that may have changed in the years since I left.

Have fun. Bon Appetito!

heh. this thread was from a couple years ago... just rbought it back up to find the name of the steakhouse i went to. And...yes I agree the steak in Cali is nothing like the steak in KC. My favorite steak when I was in town, believe it or not, was one my dad's buddy cooked up. It was fffffabulous!!

Just curious but do the better steak places serve midwestern beef there in CA? Seems like the good steak places I have been to outside of the midwest, including Texas, tend to serve midwest beef.
