Many purists consider L.C.s the best place to eat authentic Kansas City-style barbecue: succulent slow-smoked ribs, meaty rib tips and hefty beef sandwiches on soft white bread. The L.C.s pit crew also pulls homemade sausage, chicken wings, turkey and shrimp out of this tiny restaurants aromatic pit. The side dishes are almost as famous as the meats the hearty, molasses-rich baked beans, mixed with so many pieces of tender beef, could make a satisfying meal on its own. Onion rings are fat and crunchy, and L.C.s fabled French fries live up to their reputation nearly as thick as a small tree branch, one crispy L.C.s fry is equal to a small sack of the greasy fast-food variety. L.C.s is tiny, with fewer than a dozen tables, and everything made here is served in disposable containers with paper towels and plastic flatware. But what the interior lacks in glamour, it more than makes up in the quality and consistency of its signature dishes.
