Ribs 'n Stuff BBQ

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant

Quote:
Kansas City BBQ is some of the finest to be found anywhere. This is a small BBQ place in a strip mall. You place your order at the counter and then they bring it to your table when it is ready. Soda drinks are all you want to drink and the machine is where you can help yourself. BBQ sandwiches run around $5.00 each and BBQ Plates run $7.50 for a one meat plate (Ham, Beef, Pork or Turkey) & up depending on the meat you want on the plate. A single meat plate is the cheapest, and Ribs are the most expensive. Plates include choice of 2 between Curli Fries, French Fries, Cole Slaw or Baked Beans and Dill Pickle with the meat. Plates also include 2 half pieces of Texas Toast....Read More

DaVinci's Pasta Shop & Deli

Restaurant | "DaVinci's Pasta Shop & Deli"

Quote:
This is one of our favorite places to eat when we go out. It is not fancy but the food is good, the service is excellent and while not a fast food place, the food is prepared promptly. Our favorites are their Spaghetti w/Meat Sauce and their Mostacelli. The Mostacelli comes with Mozzarella cheese lightly melted on top. Their sauce is slightly sweet and we love it. They also serve Pizza and Italian type deli sandwiches plus house salads and a few other entrees. Weeknights they have a dinner special priced at to be $5.50 with tax each night and it is the same for the night from week to week. Monday nights is always all you can eat Spaghetti w/Meat Sauce with Garlic Bread an...Read More

American Heartland Theatre

Attraction | "American Heartland Theatre @ Crown Center"

Quote:
This theatre is a show only theatre but when you buy a ticket to it, the ticket contains a discount stub getting you 15% off at several of the restaurants in the Crown Center area. Six shows a year are produced and performed by professional actors and actresses. A normal season has 3 drama/comedy shows and 3 musical/musical review shows. There is a full service bar in the lobby of the theatre and they do permit you to take your drinks into the theatre with you. The theatre is relatively small. The seats are tiered and plush upholstered. The center, left center and right center seating areas are excellent. The far left and far right seating areas, as you get farther away f...Read More

The Kansas City Zoo is home to over a 1000 animals, most in free roaming displays that benefits the animals more than the visitor. This does not mean you can't see the animals, because you definitely can see them. You just have to walk farther in order to do so. The Kansas City Zoo is undergoing a major change as starting with the beginning of 2002, the daily management and operation of the zoo is handled by The Friends of the Zoo Organization rather than the city. Already improvements in treating the public are showing up. The Kansas City Zoo is home to a number of African Elephants. At last count I think there were 6 females as well as 2 bulls. They are working on the Species Su...Read More

New Theatre Restaurant

Attraction

The New Theatre Restaurant is a Dinner Theatre. Doors open at 6:00 P.M. with Salad and biscuits with honey butter served at your table. At 6:30 P.M., the doors to their buffet dinner open and you can help yourself to all you want to eat. The Chefs are creative and some of the dishes are interesting and different, but even the most selective eater can normally find plenty to eat. Deserts and all drinks are extra and in my opinion, not cheap. Desert orders are taken by the wait staff prior to the start of the evenings production and then served at your table during the first (and usually only) intermission. The Theatre produces 5 different shows a year, has around 18,000 sea...Read More

Last year, 2001, was the year of the Cows in Kansas City. This year is the year of the Teddy Bears. 4 feet tall sitting and 6 feet tall standing, made out of Fiberglass and decorated by local artists, the bears are displayed in various locations throughout Kansas City, Missouri. Start at Crown Center, Union Station and Liberty Memorial and then head for the Country Club Plaza. This will permit you to see the largest number of the bears in the shortest period of time. A lot of the bears can be seen from your car if driving but to truly appreciate the artistry you need to park and walk. Take a camera, then you can do what we did last year with the cows and take lots of pictures for memories a...Read More
