Where to dine

When you are staying in an area you don’t know, and you don’t know exactly what you feel like eating, it can sometimes be hard to decide where to go to eat. So if you aren’t careful you go to someplace safe and eat something ordinary and known. That either means a comfort food, or something that is sustenance but not especially satisfying.

We were in Excelsior Springs last night with just that dilemma. Here is a list of things that I looked at (Which one of these would you choose):
