    The Buffalo wings at Toon's have an "exceptional balance of crunch and juiciness," with a pleasing depth and detectable smokiness to the meat." Some of the best in the city.

    Burgers are awesome, wings are crispy & delicious, chili is great (soups are homemade), but po' boys are spot on NOLA! Wash it down with a pint from the impressive / unpretentious taps. Get you some!

    Order the chili, made with three different types of chilies and Italian sausage. The tortilla chips on the side are fried in house, bless them. Read more

    They do several NOLA-style Crawfish Boils during the Spring, from Mardi Gras through Memorial Day. Advance tix gets you all the mud puppies you can eat!

    Really good food and drink specials. Try the catfish Po' Boy. Pretty decent Italian beef sandwich for a bar.

    Try the onion rings from our 100 Best list: They’re executed with attention to detail—thick-cut rings dipped in beer batter, fried golden and sprinkled with salt. Simple but standout.

    I love toons. Great bbq and good beer selections. Cool place to come and grab a beer if you can stomach all the cubs fans. Be sure to check for FourSquare tips. We just got free shots!

    Nice sports bar / divey atmosphere. Predictable bar food but good for groups - it's huge!

    Yes, the service is terrible. But they have a bloody mary bar on Sundays, which is awesome. And it's a KC bar, so a great place to watch Chiefs games.

    Aside from a dude sporting Uggs next to me it's a solid bar...free pineapple shot for checking in, too!

    Wings have a little kick, just a little saucy, but still tasty. Fries are pretty good...
