Kansas City's Greatest Hits

I've been back in NYC for 24 hours but my palate is still in KC. I didn't have one bad meal in KC, and there were so many individual highlights, I thought I'd indicate the best of the many dishes. Of course, I'm limited to the places I tried -- I didn't get to many of the places I wanted to hit (e.g., Jess & Jim's, Hayward's, Snead's, Saigon 39, Murray's Ice Cream):

Best Beef BBQ: Arthur Bryant's
Best Pork BBQ Sandwich: L.C.'s
Best Lamb Ribs: Fiorella's Jack Stack
Best French Fries: Hannah's Bistro (worth a trip just
for these)
Best Onion Rings: L.C's
Best Doughnuts: LaMars (and favorite variety I
never tried before: sour cream)
Best Pancakes: Maxine's Fine Foods
Best Home/Cottage Fries: Maxine's Fine Foods
Best Fried Chicken: Stroud's
Most Orange French Dressing on Iceburg Lettuce: (tie)
Stroud's and Maxine's Fine Foods
Best Mussels: Grill on Broadway
Best Cole Slaw: Fiorella's Jack Stack
Best Fast Food Hamburger: Winstead's
Best Waiter: (tie) Latrice at Maxine's Fine Food; Hope
at Grill on Broadway.
