After a summer of sweets, spice and smoke, local diners can now start packing on the winter weight early, courtesy of some new restaurants. This week in print, Fat City tells you what’s new, what’s gone and what’s coming.

Kansas Citians craving a lunch-hour bite of Mexican food from Barbosa’s don’t have to wait any longer. The well-known Mexican restaurant (with two locations in St. Joseph) has opened a new family franchise, Barbosa’s Express, at 1124 Oak. The St. Jo institution is known for its tacos, made with flour tortillas instead of the traditional yellow corn. Barbosa’s Express is open 10:30 a.m.—3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Wing Busters, next door at 1128 Oak, also serves lunch but opens at 7 a.m. for breakfast. First meals at this new wing shop mean egg sandwiches, breakfast burritos and omelets. Lunch features chicken and fish sliders, picnic sides (potato salad, okra, red beans and rice) and wings with more than 30 sauces. It’s open 7 a.m.—4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
