4 Great Locally Owned Restaurants in Kansas City

Kansas City boasts some of the best restaurants in the Midwest, and is nationally recognized as having some of the best barbeque in the United States. If your looking for something a little different, whether you're a tourist or a Kansas City native, then try one the many great locally owned restaurants here in Kansas City. Literally hundreds of smaller sized, family or locally owned restaurants dot the city, providing a wide range of flavors and price range for every budget.

Blanc Burgers and Bottles is a  restaurant in the Plaza area of South Kansas City. Opened in 2008, this burger joint is dressed up a bit and offers a unique burger menu. A little on the small side, you may have to wait for a table, however, the au poivre burger makes up for that wait. Blanc Burgers and Bottles is open for lunch or dinner, accepts major credit cards and does not take reservations. The menu features several different types of burgers, including a vegetarian burger and a bison burger. Local owners Jennifer Price and Ernesto Peralta welcome you!
A serious Kansas City favorite is KC Joes Barbecue. The restaurant itself is one of the more unique around town. It once was an old filling station, and while converted into the restaurant it is today, it still retains the old filling station look. Oklahoma Joes Barbecue is melt in your mouth delicious with huge portions cooked to perfection! Local owner Jeff Stehney opened the place in 1996 and has been serving lunch and dinner every day but Sunday ever since. They accept all major credit cards and do not take reservations. Try the ribs, or for lunch, the pulled pork sandwich cannot be beat. Many argue this is Kansas City's best barbecue!
Pot Pie is also a relatively new addition to the Kansas City restaurant scene. Home cooked food never tasted this good! Located in the Westport area, this is a casual neighborhood eatery that features a beef and mushroom pot pie and cobblers for dessert. Pastas, chicken dinners and more are offered every day but Monday and Sunday for lunch or dinner. Pot Pie does take reservations and all major credit cards are accepted. Local owner Sarah Williams and Chef John Williams will make you feel like your back at Mom's place!
The Peanut looks like any corner tavern, and it is, except it's practically a landmark and another Kansas City favorite. The Peanut fills every afternoon with happy hour folks from construction workers to business executives. A chaotic mix of dusty items fills every nook of this bar and restaurant, the parking is minimal, and the place is loud and crowded due to its small size, but this is all part of its charm. The Peanut is THE place to go in Kansas City for chicken wings! Serving up huge plates of spicy double wings for years, The Peanut also does a brunch and has a good sandwich menu. The chili cheese fries and a cold beer while the game is on makes for a perfect Sunday afternoon at The Peanut! Major credit cards are accepted and they do not take reservations. Local owner Melinda Kelly has got the corner tavern down to perfection!
