I have been reading some of the posts regarding BBQ and it sounds as if LC's is the best to try - we were in Kansas City about three years ago and tried Arthur Bryants. It was ok, but I wasn't that impressed. We also ate at Stroud's - great food and really nice personnel. At this point, we made a reservation at The American Restaurant - is it good or a tourist attraction? I would welcome any recommendations or thoughts - I don't mind driving outside Kansas City to other locations. Thanking you in advance.
