David,
Come along and enjoy.  Buddy is a little scary.  ChiTownDiner can outeat all of us.  The Canadians.........well, they're Canadian, what can I say.  ChiBears15 likes salad.  The rest of us are normal. 




 
Lisa, how dare you poke fun at my Roadfood shortcomings! 
 
I promise.  No salads whatsoever on this trip.  Promise.


Don't listen to her. If you want a salad you go ahead and order a salad.

I was gonna say...


Not to worry about any Roadfood rule defying salad consumption; they're practically unheard of in KC.  In fact, it's tough to find any kind of vegetable there unless it comes in the form of Baked Beans or French Fries with your Barbecue sampler plate.  Even at Chinese restaurants; order Beef with Broccoli and you'll need to peek under several pieces of cow before you find any of the green stuff.
 
Okay, I guess there will be Southern Style Green Beans (simmered with chunks of pork to within an inch of their life) at Stroud's, but you can only eat them if they're smothered in pudding thick gravy made with real chicken fat.
 
Start working out now.  It's going to be a loooong weekend.

So when did Kansas City become part of the South? It's as Midwestern as you can get. Besides I love the Salad's at Stroud's you get real homemade blue cheese dressing

If I am not mistaken Kansas is south of the Mason-Dixon Line. That makes it a Southern state, even though they were a Union state in the War of Northern Aggression.

That was back in the day. Kansas and especially KC which actually has half of it in Missouri is more culturally midwestern, even the accents are very typical midwestern (the folks there sound like newscasters)
Incidentally Maryland too would therefore be considered a southern state but culturally Baltimore is about as southern as Philadelphia which is 90 miles to the North. Everyone in Baltimore says "youze guyz" and you better watch out because just like in Philly or like in NYC (a half a century ago) or even here in Rhode Island in the present, if you hang out with the wrong crowd you may end of "sleeping wit the fishes"

There's no doubt Kansas City and the two states it resides in are part of the Midwest.  However that doesn't change the fact that the style and preparation of Stroud's Green Beans are firmly planted in the South.
 
EDIT: Perhaps a less geographically specific descriptor would be "Soul Food Green Beans".  OTOH, since most American Soul Food can be traced to below the Mason Dixon Line, I guess they'd still be considered "Southern Style" via northern migration.

Ever been to the Ozarks? 
 
Also western KS (in the mountain time zone) definitely has more of a "Western" than midwestern feel.

wj,
I was just agreeing with your recent statements that "Kansas and especially KC which actually has half of it in Missouri is more culturally midwestern," and, "It's as Midwestern as you can get."
 
So which is it; "as Midwestern as you can get" or more "Western"?  Are we going to define Missouri based on the Ozarks (yes, I've been), in which case it is more of a Southern state?  Or should we just agree that geographically both MO & KS are part of the Midwest, but are more culturally diverse depending on where in the state you happen to be standing?
 
BTW, yes, I've had the salad at Stroud's, and the Blue Cheese Dressing is quite tasty.  But given a choice (and they always do), I'll order the Chicken Soup with house made noodles every time.

Just busting on you   I know we were specifically referring to Kansas City (but what about St Louis?  You know, the destination I'm predicting for 2018's crawl  Is that the midwest ?  )  I've never had the chicken soup, I know buffetbuster really enjoys it, but honestly with all of that really good stuff they serve, I need a little "roughage"

I would definitely put St. Louis in the "Midwest" category, both geographically and culturally.  OTOH, based on KC's history with the cattle industry, and the ongoing annual fanaticism for The American Royal Rodeo and BBQ Cook-off, they'd be more of a "Western" town, culturally speaking.
 
You should really try the soup sometime; it's top notch.  Besides, if you're gonna buzz through a plate of Fried Chicken, buttery Mashed Potatoes, and a big bowl of Country Gravy, I don't think a little plate of chopped up Iceberg Lettuce (especially when it's lathered in Blue Cheese Dressing) will balance off your nutritional concerns.
