Thankfully, there&rsquo;s a place right here in Kansas that makes serving my favorite dessert, well, as easy as pie.&nbsp;MarCon Pies&nbsp;in Washington bakes 500-plus fruit, nut, crunch, cream, cheesecake and specialty pies every day, yet each tastes just like grandma used to make.&nbsp;&quot; Thu, 09 Aug 2012 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/9/Washington-s-MarCon-Pies-Recipe-for-Success/2527/ All Aboard for Fun Eating at Fritz’s Railroad Restaurant http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/28/All-Aboard-for-Fun-Eating-at-Fritz-s-Railroad-Restaurant/16/ The little kid in me jumped up and down when I learned there was a restaurant using a miniature train to deliver orders. It sounded like just the ticket for an entertaining dining adventure, so I scheduled a stop at Fritz’s Railroad Restaurant in Kansas City.The menu suggested I “choo-choose” Fritz’s favorite, a hamburger topped with hash browns, grilled onions and melted cheese called the Gen Dare. Since I grew up on meat and potatoes, the texture and flavor of this combination in a sandwich sounded intriguing. I phoned in my order from my orange booth and watched in awe as the miniature engine chugged down the overhead track from the kitchen to my stop, where the food was released and lowered to the table by a hydraulic lift.
