I'd been hearing about Tao Tao for some time on some of the Kansas City Food groups on Facebook. They are known for their "Springfield" style Cashew Chicken. As big fans of that dish, my wife and I decided to make the drive across town...More

Tucked away in KCK surrounded by Spanish-language businesses is this little Chinese place. Not the easiest place to find if you don't know it's there. But it's worth seeking out if you're a Springfield MO alumnus, as this is the place that most perfectly nails...More

I've gotten lunch to go from Tao Tao's a number of times. Their lunch prices are very low and the portions are huge. The quality of the food is better than average and is cooked upon your order, so it is fresh. It's a family-owned...More

Agreed. Food here is pretty good and very cheap prices. You also get plenty of food from this tiny lady--I meant lots of food that is worth your money. Fresh made chinese and you actually see them cook it. However, it is not the best...More
