Canyon Café has a lot going for it. It's located in KC's Plaza, a hot spot for hipsters, families, and tourists. They've got some cool southwestern theming, including torches at the exterior entrance and dimmed lighting inside. The food is fantastic and a pleasant variation on Tex-Mex standards. Unfortunately, service has ranged from "eh" to "and we're paying THEM here?" I don't want to knock all servers, as I'm sure there are some good ones out there. However, we waited forever for a table when the place was completely empty. Something just doesn't add up here... (and it's not like there weren't servers; I had to interrupt one having a gossip session with the bartender in order to get seated). Enjoy at your own risk.
