d'bronx Kansas City--short report

I was on the corner of 39th and Bell today, and I spotted D'bronx. This particular street has a ton of great eats that I have yet to try (Bell Street Mama, Fric and Frac, Blue Koi, Circe, Addias Abba, ect) but I was determined to eat at D'bronx. You order at a counter and have a lot of different sandwich/sub choices, as well as pizza, pasta, salads and soups. I ordered the toasted steak sub with mushrooms,and swiss. You get a number and wait for it to be called. It was Sunday afternoon and it was crowded--noisy, but not overly so. Getting a table is a feat by itself. My dining companions each ordered a rueben (pastrami, kraut, swiss and thousand island on rye). Sandwiches averaged $5-7 apiece and this was without chips or drinks. but each comes with a dill pickle spear. A slice of pizza was $4.75 a piece or 2.75 for a cheese slice. A 30 inch pizza was $50.00 (!). The pizza looked good, but still, it was a little steep in price. My steak sub arrived in about 10 minutes. It was delicious--hot, and the cheese was nicely melted and the buttered bread was crusty, slightly burnt on the edges. I loved it. The steak slices were thicker and there was a nice balance of all ingredients. The beef had a slightly peppery bite. My companions reubens looked good,and everyone said it tasted good, but the rye bread looked like texas toast, buttered with bits of rye mixed into the bread. I had never seen white rye before. Overall, I give this place a thumbs up, however it is a little expensive. I wouldnt call their sandwiches huge, but it was good.
