    Re: KC BBQ

    LC's BBQ is also a great place, I used to mix it up and go there.

    If you go during lunch, try to get there around 1045 to beat the crowd. Oh, and they are closed on Sunday.
    Their potato salad is inedible and the smoked turkey tasted like something from the grocery store deli counter. Ribs were decent. I have only tried it once so I have never tried the brisket. I was down at the KC BBQ store a couple of months ago and thought about trying Ok Joes again but decided to pass.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Just my opinion, but you haven't lived until you've had the "burnt ends on bun" at Gates. It's like little charred chunks of heaven.

    Re: KC BBQ

    One of our favorites when we head to KC is a place called Wabash BBQ in Excelsior Springs, MO. Its located in an old train station. Slightly off the beaten track, but well worth the stop. We usually stop there for lunch on the way into town. Prices are also very reasonable.

    Oklahoma Joes is great. I had a sandwich called the Z-Man I think and it was amazing. I also hear the burnt ends are really good. Just be prepared for a line

    Re: KC BBQ

    I lived in KC 6 or so years ok so I dont really know whats left. Joes of course is awesome. Bryants and Gates are an experience but not really good bbq. BBs which someone mentioned is good. There is a dude the that smokes outside of McGonigles Market that was pretty top notch. There is also a little place in kc called R & J BBQ. Its different more of a vinegar based sauce but it was one of my favorites. Also worth a try is Wabash BBQ in Excelsior Springs, MO. Its a good stop on the trip back to iowa or on the way since its off 35. Good luck there is a ton of good bbq in KC. Damn I miss good bbq.

    Sporting games are a blast. Sit in the Members section aka the cauldron if you can, it is a lot more fun.

    While Gates in general is not one of my favorites, the burnt ends on bun is my go to order there. Good stuff.

    Good time, great atmosphere. Parking is free, but if you don't have a pass be sure to allow a little walking time. The last game I was at I ended up parking near the minor league baseball stadium and it was about a 15 minute walk to the park from there.
