    KC and Arthur Bryant BBQ

    I am in Kansas City for work this week. Last night I went to the t-ball match up between the Tigers and Royals. But tonight I decided to go Arthur Bryant's and man was it amazing. It is definitely the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever had. Anyone else been there before? I am tempted to go back and eat another bbq item.

    Are there any other good places to eat for supper in KC?

    Re: KC and Arthur Bryant BBQ

    My absolute favorite BBQ place. Some friends and I have driven down to KC just to eat there. Did you go to the one in the new casino or did you get to visit the original? I have been to both and it is just simply amazing BBQ. The meat is incredible, the sauces are second to none and you get a very generous portion for a reasonable price. I need to plan a trip to KC.

    Re: KC and Arthur Bryant BBQ

    I think there is a Gates bbq that is supposed to be very good also.

    Gates Bar B.Q. - Locations

    I have never eaten at either place, but I plan to. Almost ashamed to admit that. My KC adventures always are pretty much restricted to Kelly's, Harpo's, and the Embassy Suites happy hour. I think I went to like 2 tourney games ever.

    Depends on what you like. You can never go wrong with Bryants' but for more BBQ there's always Oklahoma Joe's (which is in a gas station but still absolutely amazing) and Gates'. There are plenty of nicer places on the Plaza.

    If you want to look through hundreds of choices the Pitch has a bunch of reviews:

    Thai Place in Westport.
    McCoy's for comfort food.
    Chef Burger for burgers.

    Re: KC and Arthur Bryant BBQ

    that is tradition at Gates. apparently that part went right over your head. yes they are mean, that is the experience.

    d'bronx for pizza is good too. i eat there at least once a week for lunch as there is one right across from my office.

    Re: KC and Arthur Bryant BBQ

    Dinger, it didn't go over my head. I get that. It doesn't make me like the place any more. Plus, the food is bad. Okie Joe's is much better. So is Lil' Jakes on Southwest Blvd.

    Re: KC and Arthur Bryant BBQ

    I ate at Arthur Bryant's last year at their Legends location. Legends is kind of like Jordan Creek in West Des Moines. I thought it was hilarious that they tried making a hole-in-the-wall motif in this super new mega development.

    I also ate at a Gate's last year. I remember customer service wasn't their strong point. It was like they expected me to know exactly what I want the first time I ordered. IIRC, they didn't have utensils for take-out, which was a little weird.

    The food at both places was great, and that's the important thing.

    Re: KC and Arthur Bryant BBQ

    Can you tell a difference in the way the BBQ tastes at each of these joints? Does one have a smokier flavor? Sweeter? What sets them apart from each other?
