One night in Overland Park, KS

Rocky Road | Apr 7, 201209:05 PM     7

I will be here for a couple of days business and will be one my own for one night. Never been to KS, so I have two questions:

1) What should I eat that I cannot get in San Diego? I'm assuming this is BBQ, and is the unique food of the area but not sure. I have been to TX and had BBQ there, but I really don't know the difference between TX and KC BBQ, if any.

2) I have found the following BBQ places near my hotel: Brobecks, Gates & Sons, Jack Stack, Haywards. If BBQ is truly what I should seek out, which one is best?

I found a pretty good BBQ thread and some of these are mentioned as good spots, but what is best for the KC BBQ experience, if there is such a thing?

I have also found a KC food blog that I am checking into. Thanks!

PS, I have a car.
