The Westside Local
Grate spot! Excellent foodGrate spot! Excellent food and service. Outside dining are was wonderful, on a perfect night.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely LunchI took my mom to lunch at The Westside Local for her 81st birthday, so it was a special occasion. We had a charming and handsome waiter, Paul, who was attentive to our needs without excess hovering.
Mom and I ordered fresh-squeezed limeades on this hot summer day, the best we've had. We started with the parmesan fries, which were WONDERFUL. We chose 2 sandwiches to share, the grilled cheese with tomato soup as a dip, and the chicken sandwich on a pretzel bun with barbeque sauce. M-m-m-m!! Our sides were deviled eggs, and vegetable soup. Everything was delicious and unique!
We agreed we would come back soon for another delightful lunch as soon as possible. We would order limeades again, those yummy fries, and the scrumptious grilled cheese!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, friendly staffWestside Local has a moderately sized but varied menu with something for everyone. Meat-lovers, vegans, vegetarians alike will be pleased with the options. I believe they also offer some gluten-free dishes. Four of us shared a terrific cheese plate and sampled each other's entrees. Everything was fresh and satisfying without being heavy. The fish tacos were a standout, with great texture, flavor and a hint of heat. We stuck to wine and craft beer but the cocktail list looked really interesting. Westside Local is a great fit for a cool neighborhood. The hand-crafted tables, exposed brick walls and local art, as well as locally sourced organic foods show off a fun, sophisticated side of Cow Town. We will definitely go back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA convenient place to dineA convenient place to dine before event at Kauffman Center. My companion had never been there before. She said her fish tacos were good. I ordered a pasta with peas and snow peas. The sauce was a little heavy, for what I thought would be a light dish, but the taste was wonderful. Tasted a Spanish white wine (thanks to restaurants that allow a "taste") and didn't like it at all, so chose a California Sonoma Valley white. I enjoy the fact that menu changes with season. It was the first time I'd been there when there was live music.....and somewhat difficult to talk. I did NOT think the musician needed amplification.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fabulousWe are never disappointed at Westside Local. When one in our party asked about specials the server politely reminded us that everything is special because the menu is created afresh daily. My only problem with Westside Local, the offerings are so enticing I want to order them all.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AM7 of us gals went into Westside7 of us gals went into Westside Local to catch up over lunch and drinks.

The food was excellent, the server was friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend pairing the snap pea pasta with the Boulevard Shandy, the flavor combination was amazing!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an enjoyable meal.We had an enjoyable meal. The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful - we took all of his suggestions and were glad we did. Everything we ordered was good including the Lay, Lady, Lillet cocktail, which reminded us a white sangria, but with more of a kick and the Spring Pea Pasta, which had pleasing but mild tarragon flavor. The wine list had some decent wines and the by the glass offerings were satisfactory for those who want only a glass or may want different wines throughout dinner. We'll definitely go back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my favoriteThis is one of my favorite places in a long time.

Highly recommend!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMRocked it out for a business lunchHad out of town corporate folks in for the day, instead of the usual KC BBQ fare I tried Westside Local, everyone came away raving about the food and the fun atmosphere, and most of all how cool to go outside the box to some where more original.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday DinnerOne of my daughter's favorite places to eat, I had never been. I definitely will go again! The deviled eggs were like no others I have ever eaten, and I loved my Apple Chicken Sammy w/smoked Gouda cheese. The pretzel bun was outstanding. The beer list was extensive, and we appreciated the pairings that were on the menu. The food was definitely plentiful, and our order was on the table in a very short amount of time. A very good choice for my daughter's birthday!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favoriteThis was my third visit to Westside Local and it was just as good as the first two times. The service is pleasant and efficient. I had the mac and cheese with bacon and shallots. Very yummy. I wish I had to thought to ask about portion size because it was very generous. Because my friend and I were headed out for the evening, we couldn't take home our leftovers and it made me very sad to waste. Plus I was too full for dessert. Most definitely will go here again and highly recommend to anyone.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and socially responsibleAte at The Westside Local for the first time and was very impressed.

The beer list shocked me, probably the best beer list outside of a bar. Prices were incredible as well.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit toThis was my second visit to Westside Local but definitely not my last. The food is very good: fresh ingredients and unusual combinations. The service is attentive and friendly. Even though we were stuffed from dinner, we couldn't resist bread pudding for dessert. They bake it when you order so it arrives at the table hot from the oven! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBest burgersEasily one of my favorites. I need to branch out and try something new on the menu but their burgers are to die for.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined at this resturantWe dined at this resturant to celebrate my wife's birthday with our three sons and her mother.

Food is very fresh - a warning to picky eaters - the menu is not extensive (which makes it all the better for us - the chef can concentrate on a few great dishes). The choices are varied - and sandwiches are available anytime. Nice selection of cocktails and wines - all reasonably priced. Service attentive and pleasant. We have put this place on our "must return" list.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place to go before angreat place to go before an event at the Kauffman center...food and service were excellent.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Westside Local is wonderful.The Westside Local is wonderful.
