“Iconic and storied KC establishment”
It’s cash-only at the Westport Flea Market, a labyrinthine place on the western end of Westport. The Flea Market has a storied history: Infamous serial killer Bob Berdella had a booth in the flea market part of the building. The place nearly closed a few years ago, until Joe Zwillenberg stepped in to buy it, rescuing it from developers who wanted to demolish the building and build a Hooters. Hooters? The neighbors revolted. The Flea Market survived. And you’re likely to share the place with a local politicos and other celebs. I saw former mayor Richard Berkley grabbing a burger with some of his compatriots. Mayor Mark Funkhouser had his election victory party at the Flea Market. Drinks are delivered by a waitress; burgers are ordered at the bar counter. You pay each tab separately. Food is picked up at a pass-through window by one of the cooks. The guy who grills my patty fancies himself a comedian, singing, yodeling and making goofy rhythms with customer’s names.
I was looking at a poster in Oklahoma Joe's listing a "bracket" for best casual food in KC. Westport Flea Market was on the list for best burger. I booked our hotel while standing in line at OK Joe's and low and behold it was right next to the Westport Flea Market. The Hotel is 816 Hotel. It's great as well. We stopped by to have a few beers. They have a great selection as well as games. Seems to be pretty kid friendly.
