    Always hard to choose since everything is great! Best BLT in town. Also try the egg salad, chicken salad, and meatloaf sandwiches. Butternut squash anything and don't forget a chocolate chip cookie!

    Guy Fieri's most recent visit to KC brought him to this soup ‘n sandwich joint in Columbus Park. Here, he watched the husband-wife team put twists on authentic lunch and brunch favorites.

    "Opt for a half-order ($4)" of biscuits and gravy and "dredge your Gillis Breakfast Sandwich ($7) in the rich gravy studded with pork sausage" from a local butcher. Formica tables. Read more

    I you get the Happy Gillis breakfast sandwich, ask for some gravy and dip it in. 10x better than either on their own, and that says a lot since it's all good food.

    Was in town for the weekend and wanted something off the beaten path. This place is amazing. Biscuits and Gravy were so good, I went back the next day for seconds.

    Outstanding biscuits and gravy, probably the best I've had. Bacon and eggs also quite good. Also the coffee. Just go here and eat. Now.

    Menu is ever-changing so visit often and see what the weekly specials are. Never a disappointment! All of their food comes from local vendors, and always fresh.

    Get a half-order of biscuits and gravy and dredge your fluffy scrambled egg sandwich with the peppery gravy.

    Make sure you order your food before you take a table...you might hear a passive aggressive rant from one of their staff if you break that rule. Maybe the guy is having a bad day.

    Had the chicken torta and was disappointed as it was mostly dark meat chicken and had some fat and skin in the mix. Disappointed since everyone else loves this place.

    Must have for breakfast a Keller-esque BLT. It's the best BLT on earth. Really you can go wrong with anything on the menu. It's also a great place just to hang out!

    A little pricey for a sandwich, but it's pretty good. Nothing worth going every week for the price. Panera is a better value.
