Went to Arthur Bryants the day before the Iowa/KState football game at Arrowhead many years ago now. We stumbled across the joint as we were leaving the Negroe League Hall of Fame. The help was rude, flies were buzzing all around us, and it was hotter than hell inside the joint. But I loved it. Had the ribs, ST. Louis style. But the sauce is what stood out to me. I've never had a sauce quite as distinctive as Arthur Bryants. I'd go back for sure. I'll have to try the brisket next time. The ribs were just OK.

I know what you're saying about Jack Stack as it is very good. But there's something about Arthur Bryant's that keeps me going back. The one out at The Legends is good too. It's near our house.

This is a great blog! I found it looking for places to eat in Kansas City and Des Moines! I don't see what the big deal is about Arthur Bryant's. My husband loves the place. He grew up in Liberty. But I don't care for it. I do like Fiorella's Jack Stack, tho. Great food. But my husband wants to keep going back to Aruthur Bryant's and I don't see what is so great about it.

You obviously haven't been to LC's in Kansas City. That's the best barbecue in Kansas City, by far.
