Gates is my KC favorite then Arthur Bryant's. I am not a big fan of Jack Stack's meats. I think they are usually a little over-done which makes the meat dry and tough, at least the times I have been there that is what I have got. But their side dishes are absolutely fantastic. If only they would offer up some better quality of smoked meats I would probably rank them 1st but Gates has consistently always been good every time I have gone.
One of my favorites was mcgonigal's Its really a supermarket but they used to have a guy named Willy who made BBQ at lease Wed - Fri. It was awesome ****. Of course I havent lived in KC since 2008 so I have no idea if its still there.
I am not a huge fan of Gates and I wouldn't go to any Bryants but the original and even then only get the Burnt Ends. If I were only to bbq once in KC I wouldnt go to either but they are both worth going to just because they are history. Also I like R and J BBQ (https://plus.google.com/114420548430...ut?gl=us&hl=en) but its more of southern place with vinegar based sauce. And LCs is good but in bad neighborhood as mentioned.
Man I miss KC BBq so many good BBq places. Also good Indian (Korma Sutra) and Mediterranean (Jerusalem Bakery).
This topic comes up at least twice a year and the answer is always the same. Oklahoma Joes by a mile over anything else although they aren't open on Sundays. Always just call ahead and get some to go because the line to eat inside the gas station (seriously, its in a gas station) is too long.
While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
Gates and Arthur Bryants are also both very good. But nothing compares to Oklahoma Joe's. They just opened a new location in Overland Park as well. But the best is the original location (its in a gas station). Anthony Bourdain named Oklahoma Joe's one of the ten places to eat before you die. Pretty cool since all the other locations are fancy restaurants in NYC, LA, Paris, Rome, etc.
Oh....lemme guess...did he say it in an elitist, overly snarky, and self-important way? Going out on a limb, I know.
