I ordered the Combo plate of "Burnt ends" and "pulled pork" with a side of baked beans. Arthur Bryant's is famous for excellent BBQ and my meal showed that is still the case.

I'd heard from people who should know that the two best barbecue places in Kansas City are Jack Stack's (and except for the baked beans, I'd heartily agree) and Arthur Bryant's. So when I discovered Arthur Bryant's was right down the street from the laundromat...More

Well worth a trip after hearing about Arthur Bryant's for so many years. Don't be scared off by the long line; it moves pretty quickly. We had burnt ends and pulled pork, great Cole slaw and baked beans. Everything was delicious!! Beer is available. Friendly...More
