KC - Arthur Bryant's

Hi all. I recently visited KC and St. Louis and had the chance to eat at the much talked about Arthur Bryant's. After reading about the bbq restauranht place on the Chow boards and on national tv programs, I was psyched to have some of their bbq. I have to say that I walked away underwhelmed. Anyone else feel that way? I had a pulled pork sandwich and baked beans and sampled some short ribs. I found the ribs a touch dry and was not taken away with the pulled pork sandwich. The baked beans, however, were tasty. When I walked around town, many people felt that I should have tried Gates instead. I did buy some Gates sweet and Mild BBQ sauce and some Arthur Bryant's rib and meat rub, as well as a bbq sauce called Zarda Q. Is there a clear #1 bbq place in the city? Anyone have any thoughts?
