KANSAS CITY STREETCAR EXPANSION SPARKS VEGAN BURGER STAND!!!
The new soy shack will take the place of an abandoned financial outlet that offered sketchy loans to the working poor.

Pirate’s Bone offers burgers, such as the “I can’t believe it’s not beef” classic burger and the black bean and carrot burger, which includes a house black bean patty, avocado spread, grilled yellow pepper, chipotle aioli and greens. Other options include “chicken” nuggz, fries and paletas for dessert.

The Midtown location also plans to stay open later, giving area patrons a healthy late-night option.
