Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que Restaurant Review

: Smoke up a whole lot of barbecue, dish out some fine Southern fare and you’ve got Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que, a beloved joint housed in a former gas station. Ribs are rubbed then smoked until the meat falls off the bone with just a gentle tug. Although the Carolina-style pulled pork topped with spicy coleslaw and heaped on a bun isn’t traditional KC barbecue, it does make for a filling sandwich. Brisket is served sans sauce on a bun; diners can add as much or as little of the spicy, fruity sauce as they want. Beans are thick and loaded with bits of meat, while french fries come well-seasoned. Wash it all down with a Boulevard Wheat, the local brewery’s top-selling beer. Also located in Olathe, 913-782-6858; and Leawood, 913-338-5151.
