We loved this eclectic restaurant, and even more so because they welcomed our dog on the patio. The food, though, is outstanding. Every table around us had the house-made fries, which looked delicious, so we ordered some too. Wowwwwww... good choice, but we paid for it later when we were barely able to finish our dinner. I highly recommend the... More

This place is worth the drive no matter where you are. The macaroni and cheese, the fries, burgers....everything here is divine. Plus it's in a funky, eclectic neighborhood that's fun to walk/drive around. Win-win!!

We went there a few months ago and really loved the food. We both had a different type of burger and loved it. The inside of the restaurant was unfortunately really cold and the service was a bit questionable. They wait staff spent more time chatting with each other up at the front than taking care of diners. I'll go... More

I visited Westside Local this past week for a Happy Hour with two friends. We each ordered a drink and shared several appetizers. I am not sure which of the three appetizers was my favorite: fries, pumpkin hummus, or the spinach dip. ALL amazing! The server in the bar who took care of us was efficient and friendly. I plan...

Met some girlfriends for a mid-week GNO at Westside Local. It was my first time there, but most of my friends had been before. The atmosphere was nice with plenty of wide open space. The menu offered many food choices, as well as a nice cocktail and beer listing. The food was amazing. I had the BBQ Gouda burger and... More

Love to eat Local which led us to Westside Local. I like craft beer and they had a nice selection to choose from. They also had a good wine menu. I had the macaroni and cheese with chicken. Great flavor and nice size portion. Others in my group ordered the bison tacos and Jalapeño and jam burger. Everyone was very... More

Every dish and appetizer was terrific. Fresh. Flavorful. Plentiful without being wastefully huge. Prices were very reasonable. Great atmosphere, but a little loud if you want a lot of conversation. Fun location. Don't skip it when in KC.

This is a nice smaller sized restaurant with a unique menu. The item I chose was prepared well, served hot and moderately priced. Service was good. Location is good. The noise level made it difficult to hear conversations at our table. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Honestly this review is not so much about the sandwich, per se, although it was wonderful. It isn't even that much about the tomato-fennel dipping soup, although that was delicious and managed to have at once both very fresh and smoky notes. It is really about the roast vegetable side that was so memorably tasty that I can call it... More
