Need food for your next meeting or event in Kansas City, Missouri? Here are the top COVID-smart boxed lunches and individually wrapped options in Kansas City, delivered!
1. Crushed Red
At Crushed Red, they believe food that’s served quickly should be great food, and great food should be good for our planet. It took 114 years of collective experience and quite a few impressive credentials to create this planet-friendly experience that transcends the fast casual category of restaurants. In fact, the team behind Crushed Red had to invent a phrase to describe their new concept, “Artisan Fast.”
Their top COVID-smart menu item is the Crushed Red Combination Boxed Lunch, which includes a choice of two entrees and a dessert. Options, including soup, salads and flatbreads, are delicious and diverse, ranging from the Cowpoke Smoke Salad (with sirloin steak, Gorgonzola cheese and goddess dressing) to the On Greek Fleek Folded Flat (with Chipotle hummus, red pepper, fresh mozzarella, spinach and balsamic vinaigrette).
2. On The Border
The three friends behind the restaurant On The Border wanted to create a place where they could share Border-style food with the world. Which turns out is a great thing for the world since Border-style means mesquite-grilled meat, fresh ingredients, hand-pressed tortillas, and sauces made in small batches.
Their most popular boxed lunch is the Fajita Chicken Burrito Box, which includes a flour tortilla with mesquite grilled chicken, cilantro-lime rice, black beans, pico de gallo and cheese, as well as chips and salsa. But there are dozens of other individually packaged options for whatever authentic Mexican dish the office is craving.
3. Strip’s Chicken Strips & Pork Burgers
Love to support local? Look no further than Strip’s, a family-owned, non-franchised restaurant that specializes in wholesome and fresh food made from scratch. Although known for their chicken (it’s in the name, afterall), their menu includes a wide array of tasty options, including pork tenderloin sandwiches, smoked pulled pork, fresh salads, and hot baby donuts.
Unsurprisingly, their top COVID-smart lunch pick is their Crispy Chicken Strip Box Lunch, which include crispy chicken strips, your choice of side and sauce, a donut and a drink. As Courtney from Overland Park commented, “Everyone loved the food and the sauce. The donuts were a hit.”
4. Costa Vida
Costa Vida’s catering menu features the same hand-crafted, Mexican-inspired goodness you get at each of their restaurant locations. And they make it easy to serve their signature meals at your next meeting with COVID-safe practices and individually packaged items.
Their most popular individually packaged menu item is the Grilled Chicken Baja Bowl, featuring cheddar cheese, black beans, cilantro-lime rice, and your choice of sauce. As happy customer Heather from Overland Park commented, “The team LOVED lunch, thank you for individual packages!”
5. Cultivare Greens and Grains
At Cultivare, their approach to food is to create an elevated menu for all to enjoy, with an emphasis on flavor, textures and dietary inclusivity. As they like to say, eating healthy doesn’t mean losing flavor or craveability.
Their most popular boxed lunch items are their Salad & Grain Bowls, which includes a choice of up to two salad or grain bowls and dressings. There is no shortage of creative and delectable choices, including a Mexican Caesar Salad, an Everything Bagel Salad and a Miso-Mushroom Bowl.
