Last night, we went to Tarantinos. Okay, so we go there at least once a week. It's an addiction sort of. We also want to support them and make sure that they stick around, this is after all our favorite place to eat in Kansas City. You can't beat the price, the quality or the service. There aren't too many places where you go to eat and are made to feel like you are part of the family, not even your own homes sometimes. When you walk into Tarantino's you are greeted warmly by Joe and Trish, the owners, who seem to live there. Trish knows we want a cold Peroni and comes and sits at the table while she takes the order. Joe asks if the food was good and we always say, "of coarse, it's the best". I am very partial to the calzones, but have been branching out to other items. They make a mean Chicken Parmigiana sandwich, that gets your taste buds watering just thinking of it. Dan is sold on the meatball sandwich and the sausage sandwich. I love their thin crust pizza, one of my favorite ways to top it is with tomatoes, garlic and pepperchinnes. The crust is so good and they don't over sauce the pizza, like most chains do. And the calzones, well they are just pure heaven! They are located at 601 McGee Street, 1 block east of Grand. You can call for pickup orders too, just dial 816-421-0043 or use the same number to fax them an order.
