Oklahoma Joes is the worst barbecue I have ever had. Smokehouse, Gates and
Aurthur Bryants are by far better. I would not recommend oklahoma joes to anyone.

It's not only the best in Kansas City, Oklahoma Joe's is the best barbecue I've eaten in the country.

I don't understand the hate for Oklahoma Joe's. It was way better than my last meal at Arthur Bryant's. Hayward's is better than Bryant's as well Jack Stack as mentiomed by momrr. Gates & Son's is way overpriced for the amount of food.

there is a place at the edge of Warrensburg that is the best I've ever had. why would you trust a place called 'oklahoma' when you are in kc missouri? i'm sure they made the best they could for the pres. hope he enjoyed it. don't be surprised if he chooses not to eat if he comes to kc again.

They all have there on unique taste and price i perfer Gates and LC's if im in the mood i might go to smokestak for the great beans. This is what he should have done went to gates for the ribs then ran over to smokestak for the beans then ran over to lc's for the burnt ends and then jackstak for the sauce that's one hell of a combination don't you think. oh i left out arthur bryant if he could stomach the sauce and the no wearing greasy face employees lol....

In my opinion (which we're all entitled to)Hayward's is the best followed by Arthur Bryants then Oklahoma Joe's

PJ Chang has better bbq than bryants and gates. Ate there in the '80s...crappy. Ate there in the '90's...still crappy and the sauce was worse. Ate there recently, still crap...how those morons stay in business...must be a lot of crappy bbqers in KC.

Whew, stay home and save your money...or go to masterpiece

For one Masterpiece (Masterpuke is what I call them) is not Kansas City BBQ. It's corporate BBQ. Both my wfe & I got sick the last tome we ate at the one on the Plaza close to 10 yrs ago. It was a running joke there as well because I wanted ham and they don't always have ham. What kind of BBQ place is that?

Oklahoma Joe's has the best pulled pork and fries. Jack's Stack has the best baked beans and smoked salmon sandwich. Hayward's used to be good, but it has really gone down hill.

Suffice it to say, many people have differing opinions. Oklahoma Joe's is consistent, their meats are top-knotch (not greasey or fatty), and their sauce is one of the best I've had anywhere. From their brisket to their sausage, pulled pork, ribs, chicken...it's ALL good!

Zarda's is too hot, and their offerings ain't great. Love Bryant's, but gotta be in the mood for it and the quality isn't always there -for the price you pay!

Jack Stack does have some of the best brisket I've ever eaten, but their sausage is fatty, ribs are okay, chicken not so hot, and their sauce is so-so.

Gates is pricey and the quality isn't always there -for the price! Smokestack makes some of the best, most lethal beans I've ever eaten, but again, their quality is so-so compared to OklaJoe's. Never been to Masterpiece & probably will never go. Winslow's? No way, low-quality for what you pay.

I encourage those of you who dis'd OklaJoe's here to go back. Overall, they win my vote everytime!
