One of the oldest finger foods, ribs are beloved not only for their smoky flavor but also for their ability to transform bones into wearable xylophone keepsakes. Pick a full slab clean with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare at 810 Zone restaurants in Leawood, Kansas City, and North Kansas City.
810 Zone weds Angus beef burgers, savory barbecue bites, and a slew of delectable comestibles celebrating the unconventional union in a prosports atmosphere under the solemn witness of monster-sized TVs. The pregame menu includes the towering plate of nachos ($9.99) and The Rock Chalk burger, a half-pound Angus beef patty crowned in a tiara of hot sauce and crumbled blue cheese ($9.99). Like all six-person family bands, each of the six cheeses in the macaroni and cheese ($8.99) bring a distinct flavor and style to the dish, and, when topped with bacon and garlic bread crumbs, belt out a perfectly harmonized melody. A slice of apple-smoked brisket intertwines with the hickory-smoked baby back ribs, creating a sauce-slathered offspring known as the BBQ platter ($19.99), fit for any lonely carnivore or youngling looking to conquer a protein rite of passage.
Jealous eyes find their own feast at the Plaza location, which houses two 25-foot HD big-screen TVs, as well as a game room with 30-inch high-tech video games, Pop-A-Shot, and shuffleboard. Enjoy summer breezes on Leawood's outdoor patio complete with fire pit or stop in the Harrah's Casino location, a sportstastic TV palace prime for recovering from poker-card paper cuts and slot-machine carpal tunnel.
Born of a union between Sports Radio 810 WHB and the restaurateurs at KC Hopps, Ltd., 810 Zone marries sports spectatorship with scrumptious sandwiches, burgers, and Kansas City barbecue. Gamblers can down a grilled salmon club at the Harrah's casino location or enjoy pizza at the Lee's Summit Zone, before a trip to the tables or before trying to pass off burgers as poker chips.
