KCFoodGuys.com loves the growing food corridor on West 39th street between KU Med and Westport. Each 39th street restaurant option is diverse and features BBQ, Sushi, American Classic, Chinese, Vegan, Cajun, New American, GastroPub and more. The 39th street region includes dinning royalty like Q39, Jazz, and Bluestem.
