Lunch log: Thursday April 7 2016, The Firehouse on 20th St Bar and Grill. Dad’s pick.
After going to another North Kansas City restaurant last week, Dad was inspired to explore NKC a little bit and came across The Firehouse (also known as Christines Firehouse) on the interwebs. It’s in an unassuming building behind the CVS in NKC.
Its a cozy atmosphere inside with mostly high top seating at tables. They were busy at 11:30 when we got there and had to wait for them to (quickly) clear a table so we could sit. There were three people rounding the room and providing quick and friendly service in tandem.
They have daily specials, which Thursday was $1.00 tacos. I saw some come out and it was tempting to order the tacos but upon perusing the menu, the Pulled Pork Nachos were calling my name louder than the tacos. Dad had read about the tenderloin there and wanted to try that.
As you can see, the portion sizes were HUGE. My pulled pork nachos were delicious. I have been craving good pulled pork nachos since Josh and I went to the Ozarks last year and I had my first brush with that magic. These had lots of delicious pulled pork and cheese on crispy chips.. Yummmmmmmmmmmm.
Dad’s tenderloin also did not disappoint. It was GIGANTIC. They didn’t make it that big by pounding it super thin, either. It was seasoned well and at least 2/3 of it was left after dad was well past full. You can even order and extra bun and condiments to share with someone else.
It was certainly a meal that surprised me for such a hole in the wall place and I will certainly be going again…maybe even later today…
Scores? Dad: 4, Me: 4.5
