Kansas City: The Peanut on Main

One of the spots I hit up in Kansas City, MO (aka KCMO), was The Peanut. The best one to go to is the one on Main Street which is generally known as “The Peanut on Main.” It’s a dive bar. Wait, let me take that back, it’s a bar that has character.

Pretty much everyone orders the classic Buffalo wings– you just have to decide how many you want. The bartender was fairly resistant to the idea we wanted a full dozen, especially after he heard I wanted a sandwich and chili cheese fries to boot. Hey now, we have a time to sit a spell so just give us the wings. All of them.

These wings are massive– they are both the wing and drumette so it actually feels like 2 dozen wings. My friend said she had breakfast in the morning. I made it through 3 wings before I gave up.

The chili cheese fries weren’t quite what I was expecting. This was more like ground up hamburger with chopped up tomatoes and some melted shredded cheese which is just fine with me. But I wouldn’t call it chili cheese fries. It needed some spice to call it chili.

The shredded cheese makes an appearance again in the BLT. I don’t actually eat that much bacon but can’t resist a good BLT. This one had a heavy slathering of mayo, a mere whisper of lettuce and the slightest impression there’s a tomato. It’s all about the bacon which was fried perfectly crispy. A+++.

I imagine that the next time I swing by KCMO, this will be a stop whether I want to or not (oh, I do).
