Get the same items at a different location. This was my 5th location and I was not impressed. Just don't expect a KC flavor or local atmosphere to be involved in the presentation. Same menu and decent staff.

The fish tacos were bland and tasteless. My chicken flatbread was limp and had way too many hot peppers on it. The peppers overpowered the other flavors of the flatbread. Looked like a millennial drinking spot. Was not impressed, will not go back.More

Have been to this location several times. The location and atmosphere is great. They even have a rooftop section (rarity around the northland). The staff is lacking. More than once have our tabs been switched, amount of drinks incorrect, and so forth. So just pay...More
