EJ's Urban Eatery in Kansas City's West Bottoms. The Original Meat-and-three.

 EJ’s Urban Eatery is a classic “Meat and Three” but with a modern, refined twist. The southern
culinary tradition is well-known in The South but new to many in the Kansas City area.

“All throughout the American South, old-school Meat-and-Three restaurants offer affordable,
customizable meals. Now, we are bringing that same idea to Kansas City but with a local twist."
