    I love finding new spots to sit and sip a cup of Joe. However this is a favorite of mine. If you enjoy the hustle and bustle of the train going by and lots of chatter from the locals as you sip on your beverage of choice you have found your spot. I love that this coffee spot has many tables yet a few booths to nestle in while you work on your most recent project or catch up with a friend. The staff is always friendly and you will be greeted by smiles as locals hold the door open. If you are looking for a new spot to try out I would add Whistle Stop Coffee Shop to your list.

    My beverage of choice is: the Spiced Chia w/ Almond Milk. My pastry of choice is:
    Banana Chocolate Chip Loaf.

    Smoked burger, tomatoes, onion, bacon, cheese, over easy egg, all between doughnuts. Oh did I say bacon! This burger is unreal! Easily one of the best I've ever had! This one is only available until the end of January as it's their Burger of the Month. So don't miss out!

    Are you ready to try some BBQ!!! Snead's BBQ is right at 58bHwy and Holmes Rd, right on the edge of Belton and Kansas City.

    I'm trying their burnt end sandwich with regular BBQ sauce. Looks amazing and the staff inside was friendly too. Very good sandwich. Sauce was good, the burnt ends pretty much fell apart in my mouth, and the bun was fresh.

    If you find yourself in South KC, I definitely recommend trying Snead's BBQ!!

    It's pizza time. I only tried one place this week based on your recommendations...Tim's Pizza on 40 Hwy in Independence.

    I have my helpers with me tonight... Maddyn and Caden. They are trying the cheese pizza and I'm going with pepperoni. We all gave it a thumbs up. Good crust and sauce and a ton of cheese!! Make sure you give Tim's Pizza a try!

    Thank you to everyone who hooked me up with suggestions for the best taco in Kansas City! There are too many to try, so I am definitely keeping that list so I can try more soon!

    I was only going to try Dixon's Famous Chili today because it was mentioned the most but I decided to try one more.

    Dixon's was good. Crunchy shell, a ton of cheese, and the meat had good flavor on it. I hear they have an all-you-can-eat taco option but I just went for a single taco today...LOL.

    My boy Michael Wilson knows his restaurants though and told me that I had to try Teocali's at 25th and Holmes, so I went there after Dixon's. The shrimp taco was amazing! I'd give it a solid 9 out of 10.

    It's kind of hard to compare a regular beef taco in a hard shell to a shrimp taco in a soft shell though. So I would recommend you give both of these places a try.... VERY GOOD! If you go with the all-you-can-eat option at Dixon's, let me know how many you throw down. ??

    Last Friday, on my Facebook page, I asked who had the best donuts in Kansas City!? I had a ton of recommendations! We decided that we had to decide for ourselves after hearing all of your great recommendations.

    We picked three and compared basic glazed donuts from each one. We were going to throw in DoughBoys in Raytown but apparently they are closed on Monday's.

    So here we compare QuikTrip in Lee's Summit, Jack's Donuts in Independence, and Lamar's Donuts in Lee's Summit.

    Watch to see what we think of each one! But spoiler alert... we both agreed that Lamar's was the winner (at least for today).

    As I talk with my friends and neighbors, no one has mentioned that their new property taxes were being reduced. In fact all I hear from the media, until now, has only showed the residents who's tax rates have been drastically increased. Read the attached if you would like a new perspective on tax rates for 2019. Hint, not everyone has been adversely impacted by the new Jackson County tax rates.

    A foodie by heart and photographer by design. Yes, those are two of my hobbies and I love it when I can showcase both of the them in one post. For many years I have had the opportunity to dine with friends and family at an amazing local family restaurant called Summit Hickory Pit BBQ.

    This is a true nod to Kansas City BBQ located right in the great community of Lee's Summit. From the moment you Google them online, you can see by the pictures that this place has amazing BBQ. The style of the restaurant matches the website, presenting a true rustic, modern farmhouse feel. Midwest hospitality greets you the moment you walk in the door.

    The staff is very knowledgeable and has no problem helping you select a favorite item. On this particular visit, I was happy to start with a spinach salad with cranberries, candied pecans, and feta cheese tossed in a honey balsamic dressing. Then on to the main course with a Smoked Reuben. Honestly this is the best Reuben I have ever eaten! Of course, I had dessert and was not disappointed. The homemade bread pudding is made daily and topped with a creamy almond butter sauce.

    Being a Kansas City girl I have eaten a lot of BBQ and this is by far the best Kansas City has to offer. When you can give a place a true five star rating you know that you have hit the goldmine in a eatery. Hurry, friends...don't walk, run! This is a must to add to your list.

    Hi everyone, this is Des. As you know, I consider myself being one of the neighborhood residential experts when it comes to our Lee’s Summit community. At least that’s what I tell myself, “if you can’t laugh at yourself then it just isn’t fun” as laughter is a big part of this business.

    Today, I had the pleasure of interviewing one of Lee’s Summit’s hometown staples; UNC’S Burgers located at 240 NW Oldham Parkway. He only goes by the name of Unc when he greets you the minute you walk into his establishment. UNC’S was established 8 years ago and has since become one of the city’s favorite places to dine with up to 27 UNC’s burger types to choose from.

    Now don’t get it twisted, the grade A quality of his meats always remains the same; the ratio of leanness to fat along with his toppings gives UNC’s burgers the quality and culinary delight customers crave. If you work out, he’s got a burger for that, if you’re into paleo dieting, he’s got a burger for that or if just crave a big tasty burger, UNC’s wont’ let you down. I asked UNC, with all the fast food joints around the area, what makes his place standout from the pack. His response was; the quality of his food and services. I personally can vouch for both as my wife and I ate there one Friday night and enjoyed every morsel.

    From a customer service standpoint, how many owners of a business personally come down, sit and talk to you while your food is being prepared? Unc chatted with us about his family, how he started the business and more. Today, I witnessed firsthand when one of his customers came in, UNC grabbed a menu then greeted and seated his customer. He began striking up a conversation with that customer. I thought to myself, this is what really sets UNC’s apart from other eateries in the area.

    The icing on the cake is that UNC’s BURGERS has been voted on several occasions as having the best burgers in the area. It is worth the drive as I have had friends drive to UNC’s from Overland Park, KS! So come on through, UNC would enjoy the honor and pleasure of serving you up!
