All I kept thinking while sitting at Chappell's was what determination the collector must have to assemble such a remarkable display of memorabilia.
The food was hot and tasty, the beers cold and the people easy going. Our server was doing double-duty by covering the bar, but never missed a beat.
Fans of sport, good food or small business should all be happy here!

Thank Anthony H

Thank you for your great review. You touched on all the reasons I enjoy running a small, independent restaurant in Kansas City. Collecting the memorabilia was truly a labor of love and sharing with so many customers over the years has been very meaningful as well as enjoyable. Hope to see you in the restaurant again soon.

We wanted a local place while we were visiting, a friend recommended this. Great choice.

This is one of the most impressive local sports bars I've seen. All kinds of memorabilia from all sports and teams throughout. The ceiling is even covered. We sat in an almost private alcove in the front of the restaurant which was nice ambience wise.

Good variety of sandwiches and salads. Grilled cheese was super cheesy, got a thumbs up from our daughter. Wife had a burger, I had a chicken wrap, both were excellent. Curly French fries were great dipped in the salsa/sauce brought out with the wrap.

Service was excellent. Very friendly, and quick if you're on a schedule to get back to work. Would recommend if you are in the neighborhood. It is located a short drive from downtown KC, very close to I-35.

Thank you for your great review! Coming from Chicago where there is so many great restaurants and sports bars, I feel doubly complimented. I am a small, independent restaurant and enjoy immensely offering good food and good value in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Come back soon.

Jim Chappell showed off his restaurant and bar to us personally. He has every right to be proud. He has strategically and artfully displayed thousands and thousands of intriguing pieces of sports memorabilia. You can't look anywhere and not be impressed. He was recently voted #1 Sports Bar and it is easy to see why. Old and new, all the way from an Olympic torch to a Heisman trophy. Don't miss this. Oh - the food is great too.

It is very rewarding to receive a review such as yours. I am in the business of making people happy and end up having a great time achieving just that! Receiving the many awards over the years has been an extra benefit that I have truly appreciated. Thank you so much for coming into the restaurant--be sure and drop in the next time you are in the area.

Great sports items and displays but food just average. I had pork tenderloin sandwich and it was barely average and my friend had club sandwich and it was 'ok'.
Service was just average.

Thank your for taking the time to review my restaurant. Sounds as if you were underwhelmed by the very two menu items that are the most popular at Chappell's. Please stop by again some time and let us try to make you happy.

The food at this KC restaurant was worth the trip, excellent steak and potato salad. I was with a large group and everyone else was also raving about the food. The cool thing is I have never seen more sports memorabilia in one place. The owner has a Heisman and Super Bowl trophy in his establishment, along with to many other sports items to list.
