We'll be in KC for 2-3 days and want to try as much variety (in style, atmosphere, location, etc) as our stomach's will allow. I definately want to try Woodyard for lunch, since lunch is all they do. Also want to try Jack Stack (original location) and Oklahoma Joe's. Is the Filing Station worth a trip to Lees Summit (wherever that is)? And what about LC's, Arthur Bryant's, Gates, and Smokin Guns?
Winstead's also allures (not bbq, of course).
Any can't miss places in KC - upscale or downscale, any cuisine or scene whatsoever is fine (really).
