I am in KC for a meeting downtown. I have time after to get some Q.

Any recommendations for places to try? I've been the Jack Stacks and Arthur Bryant's in the past, so looking for a different option

Thanks

From downtown you aren't too far from Slaps BBQ. I was impressed with their food when I went.

I hear a lot of good comments on Q39, but my family didn't think it was worth it for the cost/serving size/crowd/dealing with hipsters.

I stopped at Joes KC bbq a year ago while making a bonzai run from Minneapolis to Dallas. That place was all the rage last year. It is a repurposed gas station (I guess that's cool) and the wait at the door was 1.5 hrs. OR you could call the order in and pick it up. Obviously we did that.

If I'm being honest is was just decent. Nothing special or out of the ordinary. I was especially excited to try true KC burnt ends. They were good but again nothing memorable.

Possibly some of the issue is what different regions consider good bbq. In my mind if the BBQ is good enough it doesn't need sauce. Up in KC they are big saucers. The meat was good and the sauce was good. None of it was WOW awesome or ever make me want to wait in line to eat more.

Apologies if this is your local favorite.

Slaps is good, but check out Plowboys BBQ. Brethren owned!

Arthur Bryant's on Brooklyn Ave is decent... the atmosphere is pretty cool... A lot of history!

Edit: Doh! Just saw the rest of your post that youve done AB's... Oh well

I'm going to give Plowboys a try. It's right near my hotel and I'd love to give a fellow brethren some business.

Not sure of Todd will be there, but if he is, tell him that I say hello!

I went to q39 last week and had the best restaurant brisket I’ve ever eaten.

If Plowboys' restaurant is as good as their Chicken Rub...forget about it!
