    The service is friendly.The restaurant is tiny and eclectic. Best late night food anywhere in KC. There is nothing bad about this place; I have no complaints.

    There's not much to it, but it packs a quite the endearing punch. Open 24/7 in Crossroads, and offerings can differ daily. Try it Sat at 3am, Tues for lunch, Thurs for dinner or any time you want!

    Best late-night food in KC hands down. And cheap. Eat something with chorizo gravy. And the bacon. God, the bacon.

    Very laid back, casual dinning experience. They may not have a menu but we told them what we wanted and they made it for us! Quite tasty with a very charming atmosphere!

    Two words: chorizo gravy. Also, the dirty rice is filled with huge chunks of chicken and andouille. And a little bowl is only $3.

    For the show's “World of Flavors” episode, Guy Fieri sampled several items inspired by the chef’s worldly travels—including dirty rice, Thai-spiced chicken and fresh fish wrapped in banana leaves.

    Good luck finding it, but it has the best coffee in the city and some of the best food. Menu changes every day and depends on what's on hand. Eclectic clientele and it's open late.
