Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

They need to work on their sauce. It's not good. I usually eat at Hickory Log BBQ

Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

I don't have time for all this waiting in long ass lines for bbq nonsense. OK Joes? Too long a wait. This place? Sounds like a hassle. I'd love some good ribs though.

Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

Slaps is the real deal no lie. For those in crackerland suburbia, plan a stop by when you are in the area at the right time. Don't commute in from your cul-de-sac and then cry on the internets when you didn't win your prize.

It's a new business. I believe they are trying to expand their output, also I have heard they are a bit slower on Mondays.

It's worth it. The meat is perfect. The sauce is super sweet, so be conservative with it until you have had a taste.

Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

Oh well, guess you gotta get in line with the other early birds! My favorite place right now -and their burnt ends are to die for, but really, all their offerings are of stellar quality- is Next Year's Winner, up there near Briar Cliff. Trust me, the trek is worth it, and I've eaten at every barbecue joint that's worth a mention in the KC area. I like KC-style barbecue, and NYW gets an "outstanding!" in my book.

The smoked pork loin sandwich is delicious. They seem to have taken sandwiches in general to a new level.

Re: “How do you say 'Beard winner Michael Smith' in Spanish? Cocobolos

C'mon Charles :-(

Love Michael Smith. But paying for chips and salsa is a deal-killer at a Mexican resturant/cantina.

Re: “Ten great burgers under $10, no Winstead's and no Town Topic

Retro Bowl ( formerly McBowl ) in Liberty has been serving up great burgers FOR YEARS ! Either the 300 Burger ( double cheeseburger ) or the 800 Burger ( triple cheeseburger ) will fill your craving for a great burger. Their condiment bar let's you dress your burger any way you choose and at lunch time the line is out the door.

You must have received special treatment because that is the complete opposite experience we had with the food and service was subpar. Reviews on Yelp are mixed and not good ratings as compared to other M.S. establishments.

I'd rather drive to Manhattan and get the Evil Desert Chicken. I'm sure this is good in it's own right, but when I hear Coco Bolos I have too many delicious memories that pop up in my head.

Re: “Stopping for food - good food - along the Quindaro

Although, as some have mentioned, the store is a little on the small side, and does take something away from the overall atmosphere. But, it's great food if you like BBQ. It is easy to get to, clean, always friendly, and the staff will assist you in anyway they can for large orders & carry outs!

I have eaten there twice, and done the carry out thing several times for family & work parties. Most everyone loves Ricky's Pit BBQ

While you're there, you've got to try their baked beans! I have been to the BIG places, but this tiny operation produces some great food! Try it...

Re: “Nick and Jake's on Main: a location with a curse, a menu with potential, servers with an itch

I worked for Nick &Jake's for 6 years as a manager at their Overland Park location. I will state that Kevin, Doug, Bill and Larry are fine restaurant men, fine owners, fine Dads and fine Kansas City business owners. If there are issues at the new restaurant on Main then those issues will be studied and corrected. Why? Because they are in their stores every day. When I finally get my own bar/restaurant, I hope that I can reach the high bar that these gentlemen have set. You guys are the best! Tom Wynne

Lamb meatball sandwich = amazing.

I also loved the unexpected barley salad as a side. Get that if you haven't tried it. It'll blow your mind.

And the beer selection is awesome too.

It's a great place. One of the best lunch values around. The cider selection is really good, too.

Re: “Alex Pope's Preservation Market is reason enough to frequent Bridger's Bottle Shop

The beet salad (with pulled pork) is one of the best things I've ever tasted. And the size of the portion is enough for 2 meals for me, making it a great deal. I love this place.

Re: “Nick and Jake's on Main: a location with a curse, a menu with potential, servers with an itch

My message is one of strong and unequivocal support for Charles. The shoot-the-reviewer comments baffle me. Charles has demonstrated with decades of good and principled work that the only agendas he brings to the table are precisely the tastes and preferences that are essential to reviews.
It's a subjective undertaking and Charles' consistency and clarity alone rank him among the elite. His knowledge and experience are bonuses, as is the clarity of his writing and --regardless of whether you agree his opinions -- his judgment.
(No, I'm not a relative, a close personal friend, or a flack. Just an occasional fan of Charles' work through 30 years of being in and out of Kansas City.)
