Hi,

A buddy of mine at work is going down to KC in a few weeks and would like to find some GOOD and reasonably priced BBQ rants. Any help?

Thanks

How much time does he have?

if he wants the "classics"...

Gates BBQ
Arthur Bryant's - 18th & brooklyn only
Oklahoma Joes - 47th & Mission, although haven't noticed much difference in product from the Olathe location
Fiorella's Jack Stack - Martin City

also check out LC's, Haywards, the Dot, Rosedale BBQ. i have yet to try Smoking Guns but i'm loving their "hot" rub alot lately.

Not sure how long he's gonna be there, but that's a good start to a list to give him. What do you mean by "the classics"? just wondering....different people, different meanings Confused

Thanks

I'd have to vote for Oklahoma Joe's in Mission. LC's has great food but I won't be going back any time soon.

Thunderburp as mentioned your friend should try the classic places but also definitely tryout the smaller joints. I recently tried Danny Edwards on 29th n SW Blvd n it was pretty good. The ribs had good flavor and the sandwich my brother ordered had turkey falling out all over because it was stacked so high. I thought the sauce was just ok but that won't stop me from going back to try their sandwiches which are reasonably priced. Its actually just a half mile north of rosedale BBQ on the Missouri side. LCs was shut down recently by the HD for a short time but has sinced re-opened. I have never tried it. And JCT I tried smokin guns once and wasn't that impressed. I do like their rub though.

I love the Arthur Bryants, it is in the ghetto and they have a security guard at the door, but the food is amazing. Some of the better BBQ I have had. Whatever you do don't forget to get some burnt ends.

Johnny's in Olathe on Old 56 HWY has the best brisket in town hands down. Ok. Joe's at 119th and I-35 beside Tractor Supply is the best all around in many's opinion including mine.

My faves when I get back home with Okie Joe off 47th the first pick. Although when the son picks me up at KCI, it's Famous Daves near the airport for some cold ones and we share an American Platter together for a few hours of "catching up". Wink

hey burp,
by classic i meant the ones that have good product most days and that have the history. OK joes doesnt' have the history that gates, arthurs Bs and even fiorellas, but they are often reputed as one of the top joints in the city.

I'm with Mike on this one. Even though they were closed, they've reopened.

If I'm going through KC. LC's in on my list as well as Oklahoma Joe's.

depends on how much time he has but my list (in order) would be:

1. Aurthur Bryants (the original on Brooklyn Ave only) try the ribs and thier sauce is very different from the rest.
2. Oklahoma Joes have the Pulled pork sandwich, one of the best I had in KC
3. Gates, get the sampler platter. They have incredible Ham and some pretty decent brisket.


I always heard good things about LC's but never made it there myself.

I wasn't impressed with Jack Stack's personally. It was more of an upscale restaruant as opposed to a BBQ joint, and the burnt ends weren't that great, so I would put that one on the last to check out, depending on time.
