    KC BBQ Tour Recommendations

    I'm sure that many Cyclone fans are familiar with the KC biggies (Arthur Bryants, Gates) for BBQ, but I'd be interested to hear some of your favorite but less established purveyors of barbecue down in the Kansas City area.

    Re: KC BBQ Tour Recommendations

    Don't forget Oklahoma Joes, another great well-known local option. I also hit up K&M from time to time, but located in Spring Hill it would be quite the trek for those of you staying downtown or near the sports complex.

    For those of you really wanting to get your BBQ on, the American Royal BBQ competition is going on that weekend around Kemper Arena. You could head over there after the game on Saturday for some BBQ, live music, and some fireworks to finish off a great day of Cyclone football.

    Re: KC BBQ Tour Recommendations

    LC's BBQ is pretty good...its not a fancy place by any stretch of the imagination though.

    others: Hayward's BBQ, Wyandot BBQ, and Winslow BBQ ...

    Re: KC BBQ Tour Recommendations

    It kind of matter what you are looking for. In my opinion Oklahoma Joes is the best for sandwiches and fries. If you are looking for beans its Jack Stack all the way. Jack Stack also has pretty good Baby Back Ribs. I would really recommend Wabash (Wabash BBQ Restaurant, Catering and Blues Garden, Excelsior Springs Missouri.). It’s outside of KC but somewhat on the way back to Iowa. They have the best ribs and sweet potato fries in the KC area.

    I have also heard good things about K&M but I never made it down there.

    Re: KC BBQ Tour Recommendations

    Although not what I would call "less established", you gotta make a stop by Fiorella's Jack Stack if you haven't. I've been to at least a couple in KC, one of them in the Plaza (the Country Club Plaza, usually just referred to as "the Plaza").

    Oklahoma Joe's is also good.. can't go wrong with either. And the fun thing about the OK Joe's I went was it was in a gas station.


    Edit: Bah, Smitty beat me to it about Jack Stack.

    Re: KC BBQ Tour Recommendations

    Once I got thinking about it the other place I forgot about is McGonigle’s. Its actually just really nice local meat market but from Wed to Sat they have a guy that makes bbq. It some of the better bbq in KC that people dont know about.

    My opinions come from the fact that I lived in KC for three years and hate bbq just about ever Friday. We tried about every restaurant that we could get to in 20 min. Man I miss good bbq. Its just not the same in Colorado.

    Jack Stack for me. I might be in the minority but I think Arthur Bryant's is greasy and over rated and I've had it a couple times.

    Nope I agree. The only thing any good at Bryants is the Burnt Ends and you have to go the original restaurant.

    Re: KC BBQ Tour Recommendations

    Take a break from the BBQ and head over to Stroud's and get the pan fried chicken with the cinnamon rolls for dessert.

    You will not be disappointed.

    Gates BBQ is the saltiest thing I've ever eaten. I couldn't finish what I'd ordered because I was starting to get sick. Worst thing I've ever eaten and I spent a year in Iraq! Sad really because I'm a fan of savory food but I don't enjoy taking bites from a salt lick.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I agree with Stroud's definitely worth the time to eat there.

    This is a strong recommendation.

    LC's is awesome and it's a stone's throw from Arrowhead. I had one of their four inch high "combo" sandwiches when I was down there for a Chiefs game earlier this year. So hefty it squashed the bottom piece of white bread in to a piece of BBQ soaked tissue paper.

    I can get chicken at grandma's house. It's a stipulation of this trip that we avoid all fish and poultry.

    Stoud's chicken is better than any of our Grandmas.
