For fun, if you had one week to live, and could eat a meal each day at a KC Restaurant, what would you choose?

I'll start:

Mon: The cheese enchiladas with green chile sauce at El Camio Real
Tue: A double cheese burger with fries at 5 Guys
Wed: The philly cheesesteak pizza at Grinders
Thurs: Chicken Normandy at Tatsu
Fri: BBQ Beef sand. and Fries at Bryant's
Sat: Kona crusted Filet with Shallot Butter sauce and Truffle/Parmesan fries at Capital Grille
Sun: Pan fried chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and sticky buns at Strouds.

  1. I'd add Oklahoma Joe's gas station location for BBQ on your list..

    1. Id have to squeeze in a triple BLT and wings at The Peanut.
      With a week to live I might not be hungry. Probably just be drinking a lot of Double Wide IPA.

      1. Mon: Gates BBQ - brisket, ribs, cole slaw and fries with a bucket of spicy sauce
        Tues: Bryant's BBQ - brisket and fries
        Wed: Oklahoma Joe's - brisket, burnt ends, fries, slaw, sauce
        Thur: Johnny C's pizza - thin crust pepperoni!!!
        Fri: Gates BBQ: same
        Sat: Oklahoma Joe's
        Sun: Gates & Oklahoma Joe's (2 Ques at the same time! Kind of reminds me of the "Office Space" question about what would you do if you had a million dollars?" If it was my last meal, I think I'd have 2 Ques at the same time!)

        1. Okay, while we're fantasizing, I'm going to assume someone else is paying and there will be no health or wellness ramifications on my choices. So,

          M: big order braised short ribs at Julian
          T: several courses including luscious duck and those incredible ricotta fritters at Bluestem
          W: pizza bianca and a mustard vinaigrette dressed green salad at Pizza Bella
          Th: rabbit at Justus Drugstore
          F: a big steak and a bottle of malbec at Piropos
          S: modan yaki at One Bite
          S: bbq w/ fries at Bryant's

          Oh, and I'd have breakfast at Room 39 every morning, and never get tired of the menu. Honest to God, best breakfast in KC, and the coffee, mmm, the coffee...
