Kansas City Snack Switcheroo: Guy's Deli Replaces Joe's Pizza In Westport

Saturday news for middle-aged people who still hang out in a party district designed for much younger folks . . .

A local company from the outskirts of town decides to take its chances in this rough & tumble entertainment district . . .

We're eager to see what they come up with but there are two other places to get a sandwich in Westport and corporate chain Pickleman's has a bigger space with fare that has been tested across the nation. 

However, it looks like the deli will still serve pizza . . . Here's their announcement

Guy’s Deli!  We will be moving into the old “Joe’s Buy the Slice”  located in the back of @kellyswestportinn and will affectionately be called “GUY'S Deli at Kelly’s.”

We’ll be serving a fresh new menu of delicious deli sandwiches, but better yet, we will continue serving pizza made from Joe’s original recipes by the same staff you’ve known and loved for years.
So come and grab a slice or a sammie.  

And don’t forget the Guy’s ™

Opening December 2021
