    Gates all day. Great sauce, fantastic meals, and a unique environment.

    Thanks for the heads up! We can supposedly be admitted an hour and a half before kick with our tickets, so hopefully parking won't be too crazy

    Oklahoma Joe's is better than everyone else, in the world.

    Re: KC BBQ

    IMO, 1.) Oklahoma Joe's 2.) Jack Stack 3.) Gates

    I never thought the words "Hi, may I help you?" could be so intimidating.

    Gates, Arthur Bryant's, Oklahoma Joe's, and Jack Stack are the big four. People like each for varying reasons, so I say try them all (and then some)!

    Tomato based vs brown sugar based...


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    I have only been to OK Joe's and Jack Stack (multiple times each) but I thought Jack Stack was the better of the two. That said, they are both fantastic.

    Have eaten BBQ all over this great country and the absolutely best thing I have had has been the burnt ends on a bun, nirvana. Having said that sometimes it is less than nirvana.

    Re: KC BBQ

    Have been to Jack Stack and Oklahoma Joe's. I would have to say I was disappointed with Jack Stack and OJ's was good but we were in line for two hours. We were only sitting for about 15-20 minutes once we got out meal. They have their service down to a science because there is always someplace to sit by the time you get through the line. I would recommend getting Oklahoma Joes's "To Go" if that's an option. Otherwise wait until about 9:30 pm to go.

    Re: KC BBQ

    I second Jack Stack and their cheesy corn bake. My wife got their rib-eye which was voted best steak in town. I've never seen my wife eat steak with 57 sauce until then.

    BTW, just down the road from Kelly's is a burger joint called Flea Market. Best burger we ever ate.

    Re: KC BBQ

    Oklahoma Joe's and Jack Stack, for sure. Woodyard is underrated and really good. Plowboy's is newish but also excellent competition-style barbecue. Q39 is kinda fancy but the meats were excellent. Smokey's on the Boulevard makes a barbecued egg roll that is an experience.

    Jack Stack if you want a cloth napkin or Bryant's if you want the old school hood experience. Sliced pork at Bryant's or anything at JS.
