Crappy location doesn't help. Between French Market and Metcalf South being nice piles of nothing right now, the area just doesn't draw. And the shopping center where the restaurant was also appears half empty.
There's still a Famous Dave's (with a 4.3/5 star rating on Google) at the Legends. Besides that, there's five Dickey's in KC, all on the Missouri side oddly.
