Around the Town Thursday: Christy’s Tasty Queen

After having traveled to Hutchinson, Kansas to see some great sights, we’re back in Kansas City for this edition of Around the Town Thursday.

Today we’re stopping in at Christy’s Tasty Queen, a great little hole-in-the-wall restaurant located in Kansas City, Kansas.

Christy’s Tasty Queen in Kansas City, Kansas

I grew up in the Turner District so Christy’s was a staple for myself and other Turnerites.  They have the BEST tenderloins in the area.  But the tenderloins isn’t the only great food at Christy’s.  I love their burgers and their hot fudge sundae shakes.  D1 is a fan of their tenderloin (of course), which is the size of a small plate but well worth the price!

Christy’s has been around since 1983.  It’s not a sit down restaurant, though it does have one or two picnic tables you can sit outside and eat at.  Many reviews on Yelp and Foursquare have referred to it as a hidden gem and throwback restaurant.  I would agree with both statements.

Don’t wait until you’re in the area to stop at this excellent restaurant!  It’s worth making a special trip to try the tenderloin and a shake.
