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.

Aurthur Bryant's is not up to par
by TeriDavisNewman on Fri Oct 31, 2014 6:48 am
 
I had BBQ from AB last month when I was in Kansas City and it did not meet my standards. The place was not as clean as I’m used to and the chain link fence and guard in the parking lot at high noon did not give me a good feeling about this place after dark. The ribs were not good, no smoke flavor whatsoever--I believe I could have made them better in my oven at home. On top of the sub-par food, the service was inattentive and the work staff was not very friendly. I’m surprised by their favorable reputation and I don’t believe it will last much longer.
