Joplin Restaurants

  • Love Italian

    Great food, reasonable prices, wonderful people pretty much describes this Italian restaurant. All the entrees are in the $9-13.00 range, which I consider to be very fair, given the excellent quality and authenticity of what Carino’s serves.While I have never been overly thrilled with the prospect of chain-store dining, the magic at Carino’s comes...

  • Possibly the BEST steak on RT 66 ??

    A great place to eat. Located on the old city alignment of Route 66, it looks a little run down (like the rest of the neighborhood) but safe. But inside, a totally different experience. Period decor of an upscale, fine resturant. outstanding service and great steaks (typical for this part of the country). Overlooked by most of the RT66 books (a...

  • Very urbane place!

    I was pleasantly surprised by the urbane, sophisticated atmosphere of this restaurant. Here on a business trip, I was accompanied by several co-workers. Those of us who ordered steaks were well-pleased, and everything seemed to be fresh and well-prepared. The one drawback perhaps were the cooked carrots; they seemed to have sugar added, like the...

Joplin Warnings and Dangers

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Joplin is beautiful and for the most part safe... But considering the town's history, there is something you should know... Joplin has its roots in lead mining. There's lead everywhere... SO FOR GOSH SAKES DON'T DRINK THE TAP WATER!

Joplin Tourist Traps

    In the neighboring city, Webb City, there are these giant hands sticking out of a mountain. It is a monument to peace through the power of prayer. If big hands are your thing, go see it. If you're driving past, don't freak out too bad and lose control of your car... They're just hands!

  • Ozark Spook Lights

    About 12 miles SW of Joplin is an area known for the spook lights. They are unexplained orbs of light that shoot around the countryside...or they are reflections of headlights, depending on who you talk to. Even though I have planned many times to go sit on a godofrsaken empty country road to see them in person, I have always seemed to find...

    History abound! If you are a fan of classic architecture, then you have got to see Joplin's historic district! It is like a drive through museum... Majestic Victorian spires, Impressive colonials... Wow! The historic district is immediately north and west of downtown, take 7th west, then any of the first seven streets past main street north...

    Favorite thing: Watch for the Hornet Spook Light. There's a small community SW of Joplin where you can see a ghost! No BS!

    Fondest memory: Joplin is a dream come true for me. I've searched almost every state in the west before coming east... And here I am! I haven't traveled much since coming here, except for business... To put down what I think of the biggest little town in Missouri would require more bandwidth than the servers could handle!
