Perfect thin crust bar-pizza and juicy burgers (which are half price on Mondays). Large, ever-changing beer selection. Sit at the bar for a fun, neighborhood dive experience.

Helen's is a fun place to stop and grab a beer or cocktail before heading home from work. Service is ok and many are regulars and feel like you are in the cheers bar!

Stopped in because we were staying at the Econo Lodge behind here, was surprised at the beer selection, much better than I expected from experience in similar places. Inside was much bigger than I expected too. Plenty of tv's with the game on.

This was our second visit and both times the food was far above average. These are not frozen burgers and wings from a box... these are hand made and unique. The atmosphere is defiantly Dive Bar but Helens does not pretend to be anything but. The bartender Shannon was super friendly and helpful. I honestly wanted to hug the chef... More

Haven't been in there in many, many years. Under new ownership now. Friends threw me a surprise retirement party there last night. There were quite a few of us, and the bartender was on it. Nobody was empty for long. Most everyone ate. 2 for 1 burger night. Said burgers great, and fries to die for. I had pizza and... More

Okay for a bar. Nothing Special. Serving Beer and Cocktails. Crowd is typical of Beer Drinkers. Mix of young and old. Next door to McDonalds and a filling station. Three blocks from North Kansas City Hospital

Was a good selection of beers, the pizza was absolutely awesome, and the choices of games was decent as well. The inside could be a little cleaner, but I guess the name says it all, just a dive. All in all, great experience and will go back if I'm ever in the area.

Within walking distance to the Econo Lodge. Lots of beers to choose and tasty thin crust pizza, which had unusual toppings. A great change of pace from the BBQ meal. TV's so you can be up to date on all the news and sports.
