Characters Bar & Grill was established in 1970. Chef Brian Whitner brings his Kansas City roots and creates his signature style of culinary American Barbecue. Pulled pork sliders and baby back ribs come with a choice of baked beans, Brian's mac n' cheese, fries or onion rings. Its cuisine is created in seasonality by shopping locally. An in-house garden is in the works, as well as a greenhouse to grow specialized herbs and ingedients. Though the eatery is undergoing rennovations in the early months of 2011 it is open for business from 6:30am till 11pm daily. Breakfast is served till 11am.
