Non-Legends Dining in Kansas City, KS

I've been living in KCK for a month, and am eager to find some places to eat that are not in The Legends. Any suggestions?

I'm just looking for great places, style and ethnicity of food doesn't matter. Thanks!

  1. There are quite a few good ethnic places in KCK. For Mexican I like El Camino Real on 7th street, (there is also one in the Argentine District), they have really authentic Mexican and tacos al pastor sliced from a rotating spit in the window and handmade tortillas. Laura's Mexican restaurant on Central is also very good for authentic mexican, they have a huge menu and the English in either place is not so good but they are friendly to non-spanish speakers.

    There is also a Columbian Restaurant (Rincon Colombiano) near downtown and a small Venezuelan place on Central I believe, I have yet to try either but hear good things about them.
    Good luck!

      I've been to the Venezuelan place you mention and cannot remember the name of it! The food was tasty and well made, not greasy or heavy like arepas can be if they're overhandled. I'd recommend it.

    2. El Taconazo on Kanssas Ave at about 5th.
      Laura's just east of 18th St Expressway on Central
      Go Chicken Go on 7th.

      1. This one's in the Plaza area on the MO side.
