Joe's Kansas City BBQ - Just excellent

bighound | Nov 23, 201902:52 PM    

Joe's Kansas City Barbeque is in a gas station with the garage remodeled into a cafeteria style eating establishment. heard the stories and read the reviews but was dubious when there wasn't the smell of smoke in the air on arrival but as they say don't judge a book by its cover. The BBQ was outstanding. Pork spareribs were delightful with a deep rosy smoke ring that provided excellent flavor without any sauce required. Beef brisket interestingly was served different than Texas - it was lean and thinly sliced but moist, nice rub providing great flavor. The sauce complimented the meat but was totally unnecessary. House made coleslaw had a bit of a bite to it but was a nice accompaniment to the meal. The mac and cheese, the newest addition to the side dish offerings, creamy, rich and cheesy but not gummy. As a bonus they had warm apple crisp which tasted just like what grandma used to make. A+. so good we came a second time before leaving town. lunch this time for the Zman brisket sandwich with smoked provolone cheese and an onion ring on a Kaiser bun. Very good. side of pork sausage had good snap on the casing and peppery flavor. Good combination with the smoky sweet BBQ sauce. Huge portion of fries flavored with meat rub. Another A.
