I will be traveling to KC and plan to do a small bbq tour of the city. I am looking for some advice/recommendations on who has the best bbq aside from what appear to be the most "famous establishments". By those I mean Gates, Arthur Bryant's, LC's, Oklahoma Joe's & Jack Stack. I intend to visit all of these as well as BB's Lawnside. BB's because I will be there on a sunday when the have live music and it seems like it would be a cool place to hang out on a sunday night after a royals game.
I have come up with the following list of restaurants but can't seem to find very much good current information on them.
-Danny Edwards: more positive information than some of the others.
-Earl Quicks: read some good things about them.
-Boyd's n Son: can't find anything recent on them.
-Rosedale: very little on them as well.
-Haywards: is it worth the drive?
These are just some of the places that I found when doing some research. If anyone has any other recommendations I would love to hear them. I do have a car so I can get around easily but I am not really looking to go to far outside of kc.
Thank you all in advance for your replies. I look forward to reading your replies, they are greatly appreciated.
