Kansas City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Missouri. Which means the close proximity to Branson makes this a great secondary travel stop. One thing that Kansas City is well known for is its barbecue. The barbecue coming out of this city is some of the best in the country. The flavor of Kansas City barbecue is unlike anything else that you will encounter.
The distinct flavor and bustling nightlife make eating barbecue in Kansas City unlike anywhere else that you'll experience. The great selection of restaurants is only magnified by the great stuff to do. These are a few of the barbecue spots I visited when we decided to visit Kansas City after we visited Branson. The food was delicious, and I'd highly recommend visiting Kansas City any time.
Arthur Bryant's Barbeque
1727 Brooklyn Ave, Kansas City, MO 64127
Arthur Bryant's is one of the most celebrated barbecue spots in Kansas City. There is no doubt that you've probably seen this place on TV a time or two. The menu is so diverse, with so many options that you won't know where to begin. I wanted to try something different from my norm here, so I decided to have the burnt beef tips. The flavor was amazing, and the sauce here is spot on with wonderful flavor.
There is such a vast selection of side dishes to choose from that you won't ever get bored. Whether you want a classic dish like baked beans or something more casual like baked Macaroni and Cheese. You can't go wrong with the selection here, and the atmosphere at Arthur Bryant's barbecue is also one of the friendliest in the area. There is so much flavor here that you will wonder how you ever ate anywhere else.
B.B.'s Lawnside BBQ
1205 E 85th St, Kansas City, MO 64131
The second place we decided to try was B.B.'s Lawnside BBQ. It got fairly good feedback, and now I can see why. The place is not fancy by any means, but that isn't the point when you are going to a barbecue place. You want something that tastes delicious, and that is what you will find here. The pulled pork here was delicious, and the side dish of potatoes was cooked to perfection. There was something about the sauce that caught my attention immediately, and I was impressed.
You won't find better cooking for the price, and if you fancy barbecue, then this is the place for you. There are also many other options on the menu, including chicken, beef and more. Don't even get me started on how delicious the ribs are on here. The baby back ribs are some of the best that I have experienced. B.B.'s Lawnside BBQ is perhaps the best barbecue I have had in a while, and if you are in Kansas City, you've got to give this place a try.
