It seems odd, but its authentic. Her family is Mexican, its the oldest Mex restaurant in OP.

All this talk about it, I'm going tonight and drinking some Margaritas.

what does everyone get a okie joes? I'm a brisket fan, but their meat is really dry to me and the buns fall apart The best thing there is the fries. For me it would be Jack Stack for cheap food and Plaza III for "fine" dining

How many times have you been there? When I went two times ago, the bun tasted old and as you said, it just fell apart. I live in Sedalia so I don't go there as much as I would like to but every other time, the food has been great. I typically get a pulled pork sandwich or the Z-Man. Their pulled pork is amazing.

For Italian, I like Cascone's in the northland. For my tastes, it's much better than Garrozzo's in Lee's Summit. If you prefer white sauce, you would love Garrozzo's though. I prefer red sauce but their white sauce is pretty damn good. I haven't been to their downtown location.

I'm hungry.

For me it would be Arthur Bryant's but that is coming from an expat and its something I miss. Otherwise most could be replaced with things here in Atlanta. Although, Pepperjax would be a second place option.

Meh, you gotta get over who is cooking it in a restaurant anymore. Hell, probably half of the top 10 italian restaurants are staffed by mexicans. Its all about the recipe.

OK:
skies
jackstack

Pretty good:
Taste
OK Joes - gas station is better
Ra
J. Alexanders
McCormick and Schmicks

Great:
Bluestem is great, mainly for atmosphere/drinks/dessert. never had any of the main meals
Starkers - pricey but definitely worth it
Nara
Sullivans - "sluts" as duttbart would say - not the best impression with the gf on valentines day though O_o

I'll pass:
M&S is waaaaaaaay over priced for 'ok' food.



Have yet to try Kyoto (will be in the next few weeks), Julian (few blocks away), and possible Kobe

I go out to eat with my girlfriend every 4th and we like trying new places. I've never had a bad experience so it's hard for me to judge.
The 'great' places would be my choices as they are all great food/atmostphere and different types of food.

But srsly.. there should be a stick for restaurants/locations/phone numbers.. shouldnt be too hard to tally how many people like em..
