Antonio's serves up hot, fresh pizza during lunch hours. They also have salads and sandwiches. A lot of people love their "signature" salad dressing, but I'm not a fan (it's very thick and I don't even want to know the calorie count!). The pizza is a thick, doughy variety which I actually prefer. Their pizza selection dwindles as the afternoon moves on, so get their during the lunch rush if you want the biggest variety. If the slices have been sitting there for awhile, they'll often give them to you at a discount (after 2:00, I think). This location is located within City Center Square, on the south side of the food court.
This is one of the newer Panera Bread locations in the city. It's located in the Crown Center area. It's actually across the street from Crown Center itself (on the east side of Grand), just north of the Ice Terrace. As with all Panera locations, this one serves up fresh sandwiches, soups and baked goods quickly and efficiently. I love the cafe salad!! It is easily accessible from Crown Center, the nearby hotels and the various businesses in the area. It's a great lunch alternative (breakfast and dinner too!) with a convenient location.
Grandma's Deli is located in a storefront in downtown KCMO and is easily accessible to nearby businesses. The specialize in office catering and do a great job of it. My nearby office has used them for last minute lunch catering and they've always done a great job. The food is tasty and fresh and the staff is professional. Sometimes they don't have delivery available if you have a last minute order and need it during the lunch rush, so you need to go pick it up. That was never a problem for us because we were just a few blocks away. I definitely recommend Grandma's if you need lunch at the office!
It's pretty rare to have a pleasant experience at a car dealership, but we certainly did! We had been shopping for a new car at other dealerships and having no luck finding the options we wanted with a decent price. We found one at O'Neill on their website, called to make sure it was there and said we would be there after work. We showed up at 5 pm and had completed our test drive and purchased our car for an awesome price (very fair--we did our research) before dinner. We will definitely shop at O'Neill again if we are to buy another new car in their brands. Highly recommended!!
I have taken my Toyota to Jay Wolfe of Tiffany Springs for service a few times. The service staff is always kind and helpful. They have a decent, clean waiting area and provide coffee and doughnuts for customers. However, they were unable to diagnose my problem. A different garage figured it out for me. They were very pleasant to deal with though! I would go there again.
KC Cares is an excellent volunteer organization. They are basically a "clearinghouse" for volunteers. They post and arrange volunteer events with local organizations. Volunteers with KC Cares must attend an orientation session and then can sign up for whatever events fit their interests and schedule. Opportunities include Harvesters, the Plaza Art Fair, various walks and runs and much, much more! I love KC Cares!
I've been taking my son to Priority Care Pediatrics since he was born. We've seen all three doctors and been pleased with each one. They are all different. Dr. Beardman talks fast, is direct and to the point and is very enthusiatic about her care. Dr. Grimes likes to play with the kids and is much more flexible and indirect with his answers to questions. Dr. Guertin is very kind and approachable. They are all great doctors and I'll continue to trust them with my child.
We hired Shane Kampe and Custom Quality Painting to paint our house last year. Shane was honest and reliable. When we had miscommunications, he went above and beyond to make things right. He worked hard to finish the job during good weather and I was pleased with the outcome. I would certainly use Custom Quality Painting again.
I used Andy's Pipe Dream when I recently discovered a leak. I was impressed with their professionalism. It is obvious that Andy takes his business very seriously and has great pride in his work. They came out the next business day and fix the problem within hours. I would definitely call Andy's Pipe Dream again if I had plumbing problems.
Reece & Nichols (of the merged JC Nichols and JD Reece real estate companies) is by far the best company is KC to work with. They have a ton of offices and agents and the best website out there for real estate searches in Kansas City. Their Barry Rd. office is in the Barry Trails shopping center (the one with Ivy's) on the corner of N Oak and Barry. It has ample parking and a pleasant staff. I would definitely use them again!
