Kansas City is most famous for its steak and barbecue, along with the typical array of Southern cuisine. During the heyday of the Kansas City Stockyards, the city was known for its Kansas City steaks or Kansas City strip steaks.

In the mid-1880s, more wine was produced by volume in Missouri than in any other state. Before Prohibition, Missouri was the second-largest wine-producing state in the nation. In 2009 there were 92 wineries operating in the state of Missouri and 134 as of July 2018. Currently Missouri is in the “top ten states” with the most wineries, and “top 5 states” for the best wineries only behind California, Washington, Oregon, Virginia, and New York (depending on the source).
