Dagwood's Cafe - Kansas City, Kansas
Dagwood's Cafe in Kansas City, Kansas started business as a Dagwood's Eat Shop in 1938. Known for decades as Ruby's Dagwood's Cafe, the current incarnation began when Greg Hubler purchased the Cafe from Ruby in 2010. The restaurant is open only for breakfast and lunch, but is open seven days a week.
The front, main dining room at Dagwood's is on the side away from the parking lot. Most people enter through the side door where there is a smaller dining room and counter.
Dagwood's is best known for its huge, inexpensive breakfasts, but of the items I have tried so far, the hand breaded pork tenderloin has been my favorite. Many people rave about the sausage gravy, and the biscuits and gravy are one of their best breakfast items..
The onion rings are quite good and appear to be fresh made.
The BLT with a half pound of applewood smoked bacon is a good choice. They make it with the typical amount of toast, lettuce and tomato so the 8 slices of bacon standout, while not making an enormous sandwich overall.
Our most recent visit was in January 2015. The prices had typically gone up about 50 cents in the year between visits, but everything seemed otherwise unchanged.
