Whatever happened to Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City?

Bill Wilson | Mar 30, 2006 01:36 PM

I grew up in KC in the 60's & 70's, and Arthur Bryant's BBQ at 18th and Brooklyn was some of the best in the country!! I've taken several friends there on cross country trips... those who just could not believe the stories of the size of portions and quality of the BBQ. When I was transferred to Salt Lake City last year, we drove through KC. My heart sank when I saw the old building at 18th & Brooklyn boarded up. I looked in a local phonebook and didn't see any phone numbers for the restaurant. Does anyone know what happened? Did the family sell out or relocate? I'll be going back through KC this fall so if you know, please let me know before October.
