Four Amazing Local Restaurants

Primas Mexican Grill has three locations in Missouri, two in Springfield, one in Ozark.

Primas Mexican Grill and Kitchen- Whether you have no spice tolerance, or a massive one, you can surely find something you’ll like at Primas Mexican Grill and Kitchen. I have been craving their Primas Quesadilla since the moment I finished it, not to mention all of the desserts they serve, which made me regret wearing jeans here! Primas even offers some gluten-free options which is always a plus.

Van Gogh’s Eeterie- Van Gogh’s Eeterie was Springfield’s first Duch-inspired restaurant, and it makes me wish there were more! They have a wide variety of pancakes, savory, sweet, you name it, they (probably) have it. The coffee they have is amazing too, and overall I love how warm it feels. This restaurant is just a very comfortable place with top notch food! 

Bambino’s- Bambino’s Cafe serves the most amazing Tortellini Gorgonzola that I’ve ever had, but everything on their menu is to die for, especially their Garlic Cheese Bread. This is a great place to come if you love Italian food.

Wayo Japan- Wayo Japan is the best place to go if you’re looking for a cozy sushi bar. They have delicious food, a great atmosphere, and all of the servers are amazing. My family and friends love it here, and the owners are super sweet.
