We're going to be in KC for two nights on our way to Des Moines. We will be staying at the Great Wolf Lodge near Cabela's on the way north side of town, but we don't mind a drive into the city for some good food. We're from Dallas, so we are familiar with the concept of driving an hour and still being in town!
I'd really like to eat some BBQ. In Texas, asking for 'cue recommendations is sometimes akin to starting a religious war, but I'd love to know what your favorite BBQ places are and why. I'm particularly interested in Arthur Bryant's or Jack Stack, but I have no idea about other places.
Also, what do I order? (Love burnt ends!)
