Kansas City-area restaurants you’ll never eat at again, part 1

This week, Chuck Eats KC has access to a culinary time machine. We can travel back in time to visit restaurants in the Kansas City area. Our travels today will mostly reflect my memories and favorites, but I have badgered a few friends for names of restaurants they fondly remember. Feel free to add your memories of these places or others in the comments below. There will be further visits by our time machine to Kansas City restaurants of yesteryear.

Shake Shack: Fast Casual Gourmet Burgers and Fries and Shakes

Shake Shack is kind of like the Trader Joe’s of the current generation of fast casual burger chains. You’ve heard lots of praise from friends who are part of their fan base. The restaurant is a chain, but it doesn’t oversaturate your city with locations. You must go out of your way to patronize their restaurants.
