I've not been to Kansas City as many times as I would like, but each time I'm there I make it my business to sample some of the extraordinary barbecue available in that fine town. I've read about Oklahoma Joe's repeatedly over the years but had never been able to manage a visit. I finally corrected that problem last week. I can tell you that I will do my best never to miss an opportunity to return.
Quite simply, this is the best barbecue I've ever eaten. I had the ribs and the brisket with a side order of beans. Each item surpassed all expectations. To top that off (literally and figuratively), the barbecue sauce is one of the finest examples I've ever tasted.
Don't let the line extending out the door keep you from having this outstanding dining experience. It's worth the wait.
