New Kokopelli Mexican Restaurant Rates Your Attention!

Reviewed on 2004-10-12
My wife and I stopped in for lunch recently at a new eatery located at 5200 W. 95th Street and enjoyed a gem of a meal! The atmosphere was great also. Owners Kevin and Tammy Lyman said they had only been open a short while, but previously operated the very successful Habanero's in Lees Summit since 1996. Many of their great recipes originated from there.

Open since August 10th, they specialize in tantalizing Mexican foods. We started with a Santa Fe Dip appetizer, a delicious blend of hot pepper jack cheese & spinach with secret ingredients. This along with their salsa dip was a perfect accompaniment for their freshly made chips, which were served crisp and warm.

My wife had one of their special fajitas with tender strips of steak and chicken charbroiled with grilled onions and peppers served with cheese, guacamole, Pico de Gallo & sour cr�me on a bed of lettuce with flour tortillas. (You may also choose or add shrimp.) Marieann said it was the best she ever had.

I tried the Rio Grande, a large flour tortilla stuffed full of beans, ground beef, pork & cheese, topped with chili con queso & scallions. It was served with moist, sumptuous rice. This was an excellent mighty fine tasting, large burrito.

Our waiter was Patrick Martin who provided great service and suggested we top off our dinner with their specialty dessert, a Chocolate Chimichanga that was modestly priced and big enough for two. It included a Hershey's chocolate bar wrapped in a pastry, fried and covered with ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate. What a delight.

They are open 11 - 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 - 9 p.m. on Sundays. All of their sauces are made fresh and they use 100% cholesterol free cooking oil. There is no MSG and their guacamole is made from scratch using whole, ripe avocados. Everything you order is made fresh from scratch and the chips are made fresh throughout the day. A kids menu is available for 12 years and younger, offering Mexican and American food.

See the ad in local papers for a special offer. Go to Kokopelli's and see for yourself how great the new restaurant is. Call 913-385-0300 for directions or check their website for more information at
