KANSAS CITY, Mo. – It could be another delightful moment.
Kansas City Chiefs fans have big appetites, craving another taste of the AFC championship. This Sunday they will battle the Cincinnati Bengals for a trip to Super Bowl LVI.
Subway restaurants also offer Chiefs themed items on their menusknowing that hungry visitors from all over the world will be calling on our subway this week.
Harvey’s at Union Station is one of many local restaurants that get in the mood. The Big Red Burger is named in honor of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. It’s a juicy triple-deck burger with smoked cheddar, barbecue sauce, and an onion ring, served on a house-made bright red bun.
“It’s a way to show that Kansas City has a huge heart. Kansas City has a huge appetite and Kansas City will be headed to the Super Bowl,” said Charles Peach, general manager of Harvey.
Some Chiefs themed offerings are not typical. The warmth that surrounds Longboards Bring It Mahomes wrap is strong and unique. Longboard’s Overland Park location wraps beef brisket, hot pepper, jalapeño peppers, Hot Cheetos, and a special three-alarm ketchup all in one in-demand item. Longboard general manager Blake Barnhard said this item is unique, just like Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II.
“It’s electric. He’s electric as the most valuable player,” Barnhard said. “We want to capture attention. It’s something people will say: oh, do you have it this week? And that’s something you can’t find anywhere else.
And nothing is more Kansas City than barbecue. The Creed Humphrey Special at Fiorella’s Jack Stack is in high demandwhich features a large serving of ribs, burnt ends, wings and sides, along with a commemorative glass of Boulevard Brewing while supplies last.
“Look at the glass. He’s a big guy who loves barbecue, man,” said Tyler Wigger, general manager of Jack Stack in Overland Park.
The foodies we spoke to agreed that this is an incredible opportunity to showcase Kansas City’s proud culinary scene. Win or lose on game day, the game plan is to send customers home with full bellies.
