A wide selection of tasty, interesting, hearty vegetarian food that can't be beat. The menu names and service can be a little gimmicky, bordering on silly, but the food is wonderful and that's what counts.

Great BBQ, beer and burnt ends. Easy access for parking. Stopped for dinner before leaving town. Q39 was recommended to us by a KC resident as the best place to eat in town.
