Pack light because this road trip will fill you up.

Kingfisher is preparing a “Great Plains/Midwest” menu for its annual “Summer Road Trip” from Thursday, July 18 – Thursday, August 1.

The summer promotion, in its 26th season, is a lot of fun because it features a wide variety of appetizers, entrees, desserts, cocktails, and regional beverages — changing it out every few weeks throughout the season.

Take a look at Kingfisher’s Great Plains/Midwest menu — which features classics from the heartland of America —and consider which feast you’re going to try first. Also, be sure to make your reservations.

If you’re not in the mood for anything on the special menus, the regular Kingfisher dinner menu you’ve grown to love will also be available.
