DINING OUT ON CHRISTMAS IN THE 4-STATES

Updated:

Forget those long hours cooking and cleaning in the kitchen. On Christmas Day, some chose to eat out for their holiday meal.

"[We] decided to drive around and check the restaurants that were open. Kyoto was and it's one of the places me and my wife love eating so we came to eat," said Luke Wawero, a local diner.

Wawero and his wife were among many at Kyoto Restaurant where the buffet was full and the stove piping hot. But despite the food, it seemed the real reason people were dining out was convenience.

"It's a little easier than doing a whole holiday meal for just four people," said Cristina MIller, a local diner.

"They can relax with their families and such. So they just come out and eat and don't have to worry about washing dishes and what not and just thinking about how much food to prepare," added Kyoto employee Sandy Li.

And what the day may have lacked in dishwashing, it made up for in tradition.

"We do this every year," said Jack Spade, a local diner. "This is my wife's birthday, it's tradition. And then we go to a show every Christmas afternoon."

For these diners, Kyoto brought a hot meal, plenty of seconds and festive attire.

"They're all very festive. All in their best clothes and such," said Liz.

    On most days you can find Modot emergency response operator Roy Cota on the highways surrounding Joplin, clearing accidents and assisting motorists and local first responders. But that job would be impossible without assistance from the Transportation Management Center of the Ozarks, commonly referred to as the "TMC."
