    We ate at Gates BBQ near the stadiums once. Wow, I cannot say how amazing the food was. The area was not the best but it was not horrible either. Oh and did I mention how great it was?

    This topic begins and ends with Oklahoma Joes. I can't speak for the second location but the original one that's located in the gas station is the best in KC by far.

    My Favorites:

    Fries and Sandwich: Oklahoma Joes
    Ribs and Beans: Jack Stack

    Also noteworthy: Wabash in excelsior springs great ribs, Mcgonigle Market has little stand that sales sandwiches that are pretty tasty.

    I've been out of KC for three years but damn just thinking about bbq makes my mouth water.

    Re: Kansas City BBQ Question

    Jack Stack doesn't count. I love it, but it is too fancy for BBQ and you are going to spend a little more than your roadside BBQ's


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Kansas City BBQ Question

    Here is my opinion

    Oklahoma Joes: Best all around and my favorite. Good meat and great sauce
    Jack's Stack: Best meat but I am not a fan of their sauce.
    Gates: Pretty good food. I would rate them #2 and the service is interesting.

    It really depends on what you want to eat. Arthur Bryants has good sandwiches, but the ribs I had were not very good. Oklahoma Joes on Mission is great, but it seems a little impure that the best sandwich I had there was the one that had to be dressed up with the onion ring (Z-man). Gates spicy sauce is the best, IMO, and I really liked the ribs I had there.

    Arthur Bryants, but don't go late at night. All sorts of sketch.

    Ollie likes to send his best meat to the worst neighborhoods, because those jokers in Kansas can't tell good BBQ from bad.

    Gates is good if you don't mind being yelled at.
