I don't recall anything about BB's fries, so I've probably gotten different sides.

I like Wasbash's ribs up in excelsior springs, but I also think the ribs Hyvee do sometimes outside is pretty tasty too

+1 for Wabash. Their fried mushrooms are great, too.

I am a bit amazed that Gates doesn't even have a mention up to this point. Interesting.

I mentioned it.

I mentioned it as a "skip it," granted. But I mentioned it.

Yes, Winslow's is terrible. I stand corrected that you can't go wrong anywhere. Going to Winslow's is definitely going wrong. I actually forgot it even existed.

I think everyone has their favorite place.

My wife loves Joe's, but I prefer Gate's. All of them seem to have good items and bad items.

Here are my thoughts:

Arthur Bryant's: The brisket is the juiciest in town. Food can be a hit or miss depending on day and time.

Gate's: I've always gotten the burnt end on a bun sandwich. I loved the chopped style of the meat. Their food can also be inconsistent. Sometimes the meat is great, but other times I feel like I get nothing but fat and gristle.

Joe's: Their sandwiches are excellent, as are the fries. Very consistent food quality, but it doesn't really feel like an authentic KC BBQ place to me.

LCs: I've been here several times and love the burnt ends. The chunks of meat are huge. The only problem is the inconsistency. My 1st time eating there wasn't great. My meat was room temperature.

Big T's: These are my 2nd favorite burnt ends in town. Food is mostly consistent. Handmade, fresh fries.

Jack Stack: Food is good, but is way overpriced. I'm not sure about anyone else, but I don't want my BBQ restaurant feeling like a nice steak restaurant. Just go to Joe's for the same quality of food, but much cheaper and a more BBQ feeling atmosphere.

Burnt ends: I like true burnt ends, not the chunks of meat. I like the little burnt shreds of meat that were the original burnt ends. From what I understand, they were truly the leftovers so limited in amount. But people liked them so much so to meet demand, restaurants started "making" burnt ends from chunks of meat. I don't even order burnt ends anymore because I'm always disappointed that it's chunks of meat, not crispy shreds.


Zarda used to have crispy burnt ends; in fact, I think that's where I fell in love with them. Last time I got them there, though, they were chunks. I think the last place I had the kind of burnt ends I like was quite a few years ago at Corky's in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
