Burger fans rejoice! The Colorado-based restaurant, Larkburger, is coming to the Plaza. The chain opened a location in Overland Park, Kansas last fall, but the Plaza will be its first location in Missouri. To enjoy the convenience of fast food, but not the preservatives and additives, Larkburger is a new hotspot for foodies.

With most menu items falling under the $7 mark, it won’t hurt the wallet either. Larkburger has options for dine-in, carryout and ordering online. However, they don’t skimp on quality.  With vegetarian and gluten-free options and no nut products used in the facility, it has something for everyone. Opening in Dec., it will be located at 48th and Main across from the Kansas City Public Library.

Their hand-cut shoelace fries are perfectly cooked, crispy without being burnt.  The truffle fries, sprinkled with parmesan, are a must try. At only $2.95, truffle fries  All of their fries are cooked in canola-oil, which is great for those with peanut allergies.

Another favorite is the $4.95 turkey burger, with perfectly sliced onions, chopped lettuce and tomato, and just the right amount of their tangy house sauce.

Larkburger also has a commitment to the environment, unlike many other chains that use styrofoam cups and other harmful packaging. Instead of a large trash bin, they have a recycling rack for bottles and cans, and a larger bag for compost. Their containers, utensils, and packaging is biodegradable so it all can be composted. Further, Larkburger also uses 100 percent wind energy to power their restaurants and other facilities. In addition, the canola oil used in their stores gets recycled back to power the cars they use for transportation.

Other chains should follow the example and become more environmentally aware. Feeling good about fast food is a reality, thanks to Larkburger.

The environment of the current location is reminiscent of the Kansas favorite Planet Sub. With modern tables, booths and even outdoor seating, there’s a spot for everyone. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and helpful regarding food allergen information. Even during lunch hour the building stayed fairly quiet, making it the perfect spot for a lunch date with friends. Surrounded by the shops at Corbin Park, it is at a great location and easily located.

Whether it’s the food, location, value or dedication to the environment that attracts customers to Larkburger, foodies won’t be disappointed.  Their wide variety of menu options has something for even the pickiest eaters. With the promise of no preservatives and biodegradable packaging, feeling good about what’s going in and being put out is possible. So, the next time a juicy burger sounds like the best thing in the world, look no farther than Larkburger. Don’t forget the truffle fries!
