Arthur Bryant's Barbeque Restaurant Review

: Pit-masters pile wood-smoked meats onto slices of white bread painted with sauce at Arthur Bryant's Barbeque. They do up three sauces here, including the original, which has a dusky texture. They also cover all the bases when it comes to traditional sides: creamy coleslaw made from finely shredded cabbage, meaty beans and fresh-cut, peel-on french fries. Wash it all down with a red cream soda or a Boulevard Pale Ale served in a frozen mug that turns the beer into an adult slushy. Also located at the Kansas Speedway, 913-788-7500; and Ameristar Casino, 816-414-7474.
