  • Never made it further west or north than Anchorage but from the footage I've seen, Nome and Barrow would be great spots for jump starting a good case of hypothermia. :D

    That's why I figure they are cool.   (sounds of airplanes flying overhead....)

  • Man I wish I could go! It's been a while since I've been there. Have you been up the coast to Whistler\Blackcomb?
    was in Whistler 4/19 - 4/21.  Good time, very laid back.

    Congrats.  You are indeed in the coolest city in the U.S., with all due respect to those other fun places folks have suggested.
  • #9207 by NWA Hog11 on 17 May 2012
  • And will be in need of some good BBQ. Any suggestions? I'm not looking so much for ribs as I am pulled pork. Love me some BBQ nachos!

    I've also heard of this underground italian family-style place. Cant remember the name of it, anyone know what I'm talking about? Is it any good?

  • The Woodyard is my favorite.

  • I lived there for over 4 years and tried them all.

    My favorite is Jack Stack.  They have locations at the Plaza, off Metcalf in Overland Park, and in Martin City, MO.

    My second favorite is Oklahoma Joes.

    That is the other one I couldn't think of.  I've not had it yet but a friend spoke very highly of it the last time he was there.

    I have been to all of them also, and there are a ton of places.  I would have to agree if you are going to pick one your best bet is Jack Stack.

    And Yes Gas station BBQ ain't bad.. ;)
  • #9212 by go hogues on 17 May 2012
  • I had a friend who lived there for a while and we went to these two places. I STRONGLY recommend both. Not barbecue but incredible meals.

  • I love Jack Stack. Haven't been to Oklahoma Joe's but everyone says it's great. Can't go wrong with Gates.

    Just make sure you get the beans when you go to Jack Stack. They are unreal.

    And if your going to KC, their/our claim to fame is brisket and ribs. I'd get some ribs and burnt ends if I were you.

    Mmmm beans... I'll have to hop on that. And brisket sounds fantastic right about now. Is it lunch time yet?

    The pork and beef burnt ends at Jack Stack are the best BBQ I've ever eaten.

    Absolute best in the world, they are almost a meal by themselves..

    Do they have meat in them, or are they just beans? It should be a sin to not have meat in your beans if you own a BBQ restaurant

    Correct.  Lunchtime might be the best time to go down there.  Man, they pile that stuff on though!

    HA- exactly great place for lunch, I used to go a few times a month for 20+ years... one thing for sure it's not a fancy place. :)
  • #9225 by cosmodrum on 17 May 2012

    No reason not to go there if that's what you want, but I don't like their sauce. Some people would bathe in it, though. To each their own.
  • #9226 by cosmodrum on 17 May 2012

    Yep, and they cook the beans under the briskets, catching drippings.

    Giggity.

    I actually think Oklahoma Joe's has the best sauce in KC, but the quality of meat and the atmosphere at Jack Stack are second to none.

    You know, for me, the atmosphere at Jack Stack is a let down. It's uh...too clean. I like my BBQ places to greasy and old.

    No biggie though, the food is incredible.

    Have you tried the one in Martin City?  It is the original location and my personal favorite.  It's in an old building that has seen add-on after add-on.  Lot's of character.

    I lived 2 miles north of that one..  been there 100's of times...always busy.
  • #9234 by JaketheSnake on 17 May 2012
  • The ORIGINAL Arthur Bryants.  I did not care for the Arthur Bryants out by the outdoor mall on 435. 

    Buca de Bepos italian place?  Not too bad.

    Blanc and Bottles?  Get the blue cheese stuffed burger and Onion Rings.

    Yes it is.  We lived in Olathe, but preferred that location to any of the others.

    It's the only one I've ever been to. I mean, it's not like KC Masterpiece, but it's not LC's or Arthur Bryant's, either. I guess it's in the middle.

    I moved back to NWA in January, but it was closed when I left.  I'm not sure if it was temporary or permanent though.
  • #9241 by cosmodrum on 17 May 2012

    I have no idea. It was like the Applebee's of BBQ.
  • #9242 by kc_hawg on 17 May 2012
  • Dude - if you want a chain-like BBQ experience, by all means go with Jack Stack or Gates.  The food is fine, and the restaurants are clean.

    But if you want an experience with the best BBQ in KC by a long way, you have to go with Bryant's.  Seriously, it isn't even close.  I moved to KC 15 yrs ago.  I have tried them all. 

    Bryant's is #1 (slab of ribs or beef and a half with fries)
    Oklahoma Joe's #2 (jumbo pulled pork or Z-Man)
    Gates - #3 (meat plate, double beef no ham)

    Forgot about LC's!  I ate so many LC's burnt ends tailgating before a Chiefs game that I had to slow down my beverage intake during the game!  Good stuff in a parking lot for sure.

    I agree, I like Doc Davis's BBQ sauce but the restuarant is terrible and I think calling it the Applebee's of BBQ is very accurate. Once was enough it was like going to McDonalds if you like fish..

    I hear the Z-man is great.

    I like the meat at AB's, just don't like the sauce. And chain shmain, Jack Stack is awesome. I like Gates a lot, but not my favorite. They make a good brisket sammich.

    To each his own.

    I don't like Gates at all, and AB's would probably be 3 or 4 on my list.

    LC's is good also...  it's probably #3 for me after Jack Stack aka Smokestack and Bryants..

    Ok Joes is good too...

    They re-opened the original Smokestack under the name "The Stack."  It's still pretty good, but not as good as I remember it being.
