Inside-Security Sit-Down Restaurant at MCI-Kansas City

If it helps make a decision about a Kansas City (MCI) connection on Southwest......there's now a sit-down table-service restaurant inside security for the Southwest gate area. It's upstairs, with elevator access across from gate 41.

It's called the "Pork and Pickle" --- menu has the usual burgers ($11), big cobb salads ($7-15), sandwiches, brats and an emphasis on BBQ ribs, chicken and brisket . Unexpected are mussels from PEI ($16), and a list of a dozen distinctive beers.

Serves breakfast all day.

Run by HMS/Host, although I dreamed of a branch of Arthur Byrant's BBQ.

(fyi--posted in the SW forum, rather than in Midwest-KC since access is only from SW gates at MCI)

Good news for connecting pax, as those gate areas can get very crowded at times. Nice to have a place to escape if you have an hour to kill...

Nice to know. I fly in and out of MCI several times a year. It is good to know that I can go ahead and clear security and still have a sit down place to have a bite. (Not to mention the occasional 3-hour connection.)
