 4 star(s)  (02/21/2014)
“My co-worker introduced me to this restaurant and I love their food. The building does need an update, however do not let that sway from ordering the food. It is Very Good! I keep going back as I new to KC. Highly Recommend for good home-style food.”

El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant

“I have been going here since 1970. About 7 years ago they had a relapse in customer aprovals. They increased the prices and cut down on the amount of food. I quit going for about 5 years.

“This is a place our family highly recommends. Best food ever and good authenic dining. Love their Margarita's.”

Bishop's Family Dining

 5 star(s)  (01/01/2011)
“Antioch Shopping Center is no a catacomb of dead businesses. Burlington Coat Factory is all that remains. But Bishop's was a great place to eat when it was still open...maybe they will be opening another one again soon?”

Mann Chinese Buffet

 5 star(s)  (11/01/2010)
“A spot in shanghi; as I spotted the fastest asian buffet in little Kansas City on 39th Street. Suits my style of chinese buffet which offers homestyle chinese with friendly and welcomed atmosphere I marked this buffet for my lunch every weekday.”

Los Tules Mexican Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (08/27/2010)
“I've been patronizing this restaurant since 1974. It, by far, is the best Mexican food I've ever had. I've tried most Mexican restaurants in the KC area. Their yellow cheese dip appetizer is one of a kind.”

Los Tules Mexican Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (07/29/2010)
“Best Mexican food I've ever had! Excellent staff and the owners are a one of a kind. Highly reccomended.”

Arthur Bryant's Barbeque

 5 star(s)  (07/23/2010)
“Best. Barbecue. Ever. The service is a little harsh and you might feel uncomfortable if you've never been there and don't know how to order quickly (think NY deli feeling). Lines usually out the door at lunch and dinner time, but worth the wait. Pulled pork is the best in KC!!!”

Abuelo's Mexican Food Embassy

 5 star(s)  (09/29/2009)
“This is not the typical American Mexican food that most people know, but they do have the basics tacos, enchaladas, but the BEST is the STUFFED CHICKEN it's to die for and the papas are perfect!!”
