Peculiar MO (Low 25 Sunny and Warmer High 52)

As we wind down our 7 month stay in the Kansas City area (yes we still plan on leaving tomorrow yeah!), we thought we would let you know of a couple of new places to eat that we found that are very good. Ever since the Main Street Inn in Grandview MO has closed we have been on a fairly unsuccessful hunt for good tenderloin sandwiches, that is until now. Diamond Rays in Harrisonville and Lucille's Diner in Peculiar are both very good.

Diamond Ray's is located in the Mill-Walk Mall in Harrisonville about 7 miles south of Peculiar on Interstate 49. Not only do they have great tenderloins but just about everything we have had there is really good. Open for lunch or supper we highly recommend this place. They have a Friday night special; sirloin steak, shrimp or chicken, potato, green beans, salad, garlic toast for $13.99 that is very good. The Thursday night chicken livers are also very good.

Lucille's Diner in Peculiar is another place we highly recommend for items beyond the great tenderloin. In fact we are going to have lunch there today taking advantage of the buy one get one free tenderloin special. The sandwiches are so big that we split them so the other tenderloin is the dinner with mashed potatoes and green beans and garlic toast that we will have for supper when we get to Waukee IA just west of Des Moines tomorrow. If you like biscuits and gravy go to Lucille's and give them a try, some of the best we have ever had. Everything we have had there has been good.

It is hard to believe we might actually be leaving tomorrow after so long. We "may" have waited long enough for winter to be over, but just barely. There were flurries in the area and some accumulation of snow just a few miles from here and it was 25 degrees overnight. But it should warm up quickly to the mid 50s today and mid 60s tomorrow so we should have good travel weather and no forecast of freezing temps in the immediate future. Hopefully it will also be good blogging weather too.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. I'm glad you're warming the area up for me before I get there. ;)

    Wish I enjoyed eating out more than I do, or had someone to do it with. I enjoy reading about your food recommendations.

  2. Safe travels you two! Glad you will be back on the road.

  3. I just started reading your blog since it showed up on facebook what a hoot. We will have to find the 2 restaraunts and check them out
