^Yeah, because KC BBQ varies so wildly most may not like a good chunk of it - I don't care for places that are mostly fatty meats or salty sauces, others seek it out. That's what makes KC a BBQ capital. Plenty of varieties to choose from, or not.

Sure on your larger point about KCs style. But calling that style inherently “urban” is a bit of a Rhetorical Kansas City shuffle, when Grids point is he doesn’t like Joes because it’s in Kansas and it got real famous. I’m like Joes, not cause it’s in Kansas
Has nothing to do with it being in Kansas. If it were on the Country Club Plaza (it's basically in the plaza area), I would say the same thing. KC Masterpiece was on the plaza I never recommended that place to anybody.

Again, Joe's is fine. I don't think it's the best in KC, but it's good enough. it's just not what I think of when I think KC BBQ. I'm just the opposite of you. If I were taking out of towners out for KC bbq, Joe's wouldn't be where I would take them.

I didn't say it was on the plaza. It's literally a 4-5 minute drive from the plaza though. Relative to the KC area, Joe's is very close the the plaza area.

I guess I'm old school KC and Joe's doesn't really do anything for me. Other people like it and that's fine.

BBQ and food in general is very subjective and can be debated to no end. Depends on your likes/dislikes. I think Joes's KC is probably the best tasting BBQ in KC and their french fries/baked beans are probably the best in the city. Arthur Bryants has great burnt ends, but their fries are probably the worse I've ever had. Q39 just doesn't appeal to me for some reason. I think it's their sauce, I just prefer Joes or Gates type of sauce, Q39 uses a more molasses type sauce. Their meat is fantastic, but I also think it's overpriced.

I’m sorry, you’re misinforned. Jack Stack has the best beans in town. It’s really the only reason to go there. I could swim in them.

Was told today that the normal Zman would be coming but for now you could swap the chicken for brisket to get a traditional z if you wanted.

Also carryout is not available yet.

Good to know about the brisket swap! Our work team is doing lunch there on Good Friday!
