This past week I wanted to keep it simple and go somewhere close. My BFF had sent me a picture from her lunch at NKC Dog from the week before and I decided I need to try it too.
NKC Dog is a tiny little place in North Kansas City at the end of Armour road in the old Bill Allen dealership building. There are a few tables inside, picnic tables outside and the grilling station in the breezeway between the door and the parking lot. You order at the counter then they get to work on your hotdog and will bring it to you when its ready. They have coolers with cans and plastic bottles of drinks and a rack of chips that are self serve, should you chose to purchase them.
Dad ordered a classic Chicago Dog with chips and a drink. He seemed to enjoy it, but pulled off the peppers.
I opted for the (I forget the name of it) dog with candied bacon and grilled onions. Mine was good. The bacon added a cool twist but the onions could have been a little more cooked.
Also, the chips I got were very yummy. I highly recommend them. I need to figure out where to buy these just to have.
Over all it was a decent meal, although mostly just a glorified hot dog. Honestly its what I was expecting when I went into it. I would go back if I wanted another “fancy” hot dog.

A couple of weeks ago when we were down in NKC we had spotted a (new to us) bakery, Aunt Mary’s. We decided that after NKC Dog we needed to check it out since it was just down the street.
It is a small place with cakes in the window, some tables for dining and a case of cookies. We were a little disappointed at the lack of selection of baked items that weren’t cookies. There were none that we saw. They did have a deli menu but we were there for the sweets! In the end we both decided on cookies. White chocolate macadamia nut for me and iced sugar cookie for Dad. The cookies were a decent size and tasted good.
