KC-Favorite dive restaraunts
Looking for new "Dive" restaurants in KC Metro. What are your favorites? Will drive for good food. Thanks, D
Not sure how you are defining "dive". Just cheap and good, or does it have to have a certain character?
Some of the places listed above are great -- some of my favorite food -- but I don't know that I'd call them "dives" in my vernacular.
Swagger -- love them but it is a nice place with a fantastic beer and wine list
Vietnam cafe -- again, love the food but I don't see it as a "dive". it has a standard restaurant decor and atmosphere to me.
Grinders, BBs, Peanut -- totally agree with these
Papu's -- new to me, but I guess that's the shwarma place that steveb mentioned
If that's what a dive restaurant is, then I'll add a few:
Giovanni's Italian in Gladstone
Towfiq African in KCMO
Mesob Pikliz Ethiopian and Haitian in KCMO
El Pulgarcito Salvadoran in Merriam
Birrieria Michoacan in KCKS
Groove Station in KCMO
RJ's Bob-B-Que in Mission
Woodyard BBQ in KCKS
El Camino Real in KCKS
Is the City Diner still around in the City Market area? Great breakfasts.
Out in Olathe there is Mom's and Old 56 Family Restaurant. Both are excellent dives.
