One of my favorite Waldo restaurants is Summit Grill. In the Before Times, I would often take clients there for lunch, or meet friends for happy hour. They have an extensive menu, prepare their own salad dressings on site (very important to me!) and have the best French Dip sandwich I’ve tasted in KC. The food is always fresh and the service is good. Hubby and I went there recently for an early dinner.
Anyway, I was excited to hear the same owners opened up South of Summit Taqueria and Tequila right next door, in the former Summit Grill events space. I visited this new taco spot in early March, all ready to post a blog about it–then BAM, the Shutdown. Posting it now!
South of Summit is a smaller space than Summit Grill, with an open and casual vibe. The servers wear tee shirts that state Viva Waldo! printed on the back–gotta love the Waldo pride! After examining the menu, there are a couple of things to point out: all tacos are priced under $4, and sides are just $2-$4. The taco shells are made fresh in house, and can include a crispy melted cheese, grilled on the flat top. There are larger main dish items as well, including an enchilada and burrito. I appreciate the smaller portions–so you can have just one taco and a side–as well as a larger, full meal. If you are a tequila lover– South of Summit has a huge selection ! Happy hour happens every day from 3-6, featuring $4 house margaritas, $3 beers and a several half price appetizers plus discounted tacos. Dine in service is back; there is also a shaded outdoor patio. And you can order online for pick up.
South of Summit is open seven days a week, at 516 W 75th St, just west of 75th and Wornall.
