31/31 Update!

31 posts for 31 days is going swimmingly, except for days like today where the kiddo had a brutal night of sleep, my wife had to work late, and I would love to talk to you about a bunch of things, but honestly I feel just like plopping down on the couch and knocking out a few races of Mariokart on the Wii before bed.

I would like to add a quick addendum to the restaurant review from yesterday – I talked up Adam’s Rib, but there’s place I like on Overland Park almost as much that’s right off 83rd and Metcalf, next to Mr. Gyros. Tienda Casa Paloma is a tiny Mexican joint in a nondescript strip mall that is easy to overlook, but the food more than makes up for it. Laid-back, inviting atmosphere with an open dining area (I hate feeling like I’m crammed cheek-to-jowl like a tin of sardines like in other Mexican restaurants, and yes, Salty Iguana, I’m looking at you.) Reasonable prices, too, plus they offer huevos rancheros all day, which is wonderful if you’re a breakfast-all-day kind of person like myself.

I offer it my full recommendation with a caveat – I haven’t gone to it recently, and rumor has it that the quality has fallen off a bit, but it’s certainly worth your while to stop in and check it out.


  1. Can you put up directions to this place? I’m not from your area, and I plan and going out to try Adams Rib, but I won’t know anything but how to follow the map to that place.

  2. Tienda Casas Paloma has indeed dropped off in quality. Still fine, just not great.

  3. Hi Gregg,

    Lenny’s is a great place for subs. Its located on 87th St same strip mall as Westlake. The Chicken Salad sandwich is so good. If you like Italian, Grozzo’s on College Blvd. near Corporate Woods, has the best Chicken Spedini…its to die for!
