The three sisters who own Las Tres Hermanas were born in Michoacan, Mexico. So you'll have to take their word for it when they say their burritos, tacos, and quesadillas are cooked the same way they're cooked in their hometown. In addition to these Mexican favorites, they serve up American eats such BLTs and jalapeno burgers with mozzarella cheese and sauteed onions. You can catch one of their meals for breakfast, lunch, lunch #2, or dinner.

In order to permeate T8STE Tizzzzz’s congenial atmosphere with a perfume of sweetness and smoke, cooks slowly tenderize meats over hickory and oak before dousing them in housemade sauce. The eatery's soul food is among the best local eats, according to the Journal Gazette in 2011, and for a profile in the same publication, critic Ryan DuVall heaped praise on the restaurant’s burnt brisket ends, which spend 20 hours in a smoker.

The menu has a distinct Kansas City character, which is a result of owner Curtis Gregory's upbringing in KC. Rib tips and wings serve as alternatives to sandwiches overflowing with pulled pork or shaved brisket, and each plate can fill in with “fixins” of dirty rice or tender collard greens, or with thick slices of coconut pound cake.
