Celebrating the Coolest Local Stuff

Local Businesses



Barbosa’s Castillo is a family-owned and operated restaurant that has been serving St. Joseph and the surrounding areas since 1960. We’re known for our homemade flour chips, red pork chili, and tacos that are made fresh on a daily basis. We’ve been awarded the best Mexican restaurant in the area.

First Ward House

“The oldest saloon west of the Mississippi” Established 1878 in Saint Joseph, MO. Food, Beverage and Entertainment

Fredrick Inn

We strive to continually give our customers the best food for the best price with the most efficient, friendly service. As a locally owned business, we need your patronage and support; you know us–we know you. Visit us often–The “INN” place to eat! And we all here at Fredrick Inn THANK YOU!

Ground Round

The first Ground Round® was built in 1969, and provided a “neighborhood pub” experience where everyone, including couples and families, felt comfortable.
The restaurant had a limited menu with only 12 items featuring primarily burgers in a basket, snack food and pitchers of beer. The atmosphere was casual, relaxed and permissive.

Today, the Ground Round® menu offers a combination of variety, flavor profile and portion size that is unequaled in any other casual dining concept.

We continue to create a dining experience and level of service that surpasses customer expectations and provides a true value for our guests.

We are the place for families, friends and sports fans.

Hi Ho

Nestled right in the middle (or what we think is the middle) of St. Joseph, Missouri the Hi Ho is the place in St Joe to catch up on what’s been happening. The Hi Ho, which was built in the 1st decade of the 1900s (we think), serves a wide variety of eat, drink and great times. If you’re hungry then check out our menu or if you’re working on your calendar we have listed an upcoming schedule of events at the Hi Ho.
