    Kansas City BBQ

    I will be heading down to KC in a couple of weeks and would like some suggestions on a few good BBQ places. I have ate at Jack Stacks before and was not impresses with the quality of food for what I had to pay. Anyone know of any good locally owned places?

    Jack Stack is all about what you get.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Oklahoma Joe's
    Arther Bryant
    Gates

    Can't go wrong with any of these. Very affordable as well.

    I love Jack Stack, I just don't get the appeal for Bryant's.

    Re: Kansas City BBQ

    Gates has hands down the best BBQ. I would rate them.

    Gates
    Arthur Bryants
    Famous Daves
    KC Masterpiece
    Jack Stack


    Gates is affordable and plentiful. It is a counter place so don't expect to sit down and order. They do have beer if you feel (Like Me) that BBQ is best complimented with it.

    Re: Kansas City BBQ

    I see the usual suspects have been rattled off.

    Try LC's. It's in a scary place. It has bars on the windows.

    They've got the best burnt ends I've had.

    Re: Kansas City BBQ

    Across the menu, Oklahoma Joe's for the win.

    At Gates it is the burnt end on a bun. That is great, but never been a fan of much of the rest of the menu. Both places are counter service, nothing fancy.

    Personally I like Jack Stack, but if it isn't your thing, plenty of other options. I found Arthur Bryants okay, but with the other options in town I wouldn't seek it out.

    Is there a KC Masterpiece even open anymore? The only one I knew about was off I435 and Metcalf in Overland Park, and that shut down about a year ago.

    Re: Kansas City BBQ

    I concur with the Oklahoma Joe's crowd - that is some awesome BBQ!!!!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    That is my ranking exactly. All 3 are great though.

    Re: Kansas City BBQ

    This should cover the locations of Arthur Bryants, Oklahoma Joes, Gates and even LC's... I haven't had the chance to get to Gates or LC's yet, but I would put Oklahoma Joes above Arthur Bryant's based upon my experience thus far.
