BBQ Shack

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

To say The BBQ Shack is amazing would be an understatement. This Paola eatery is a top place for me. I have never been disappointed. The food is out of this world. There is nothing they don't do right. Meat is so flavorful and moist. I love their ribs, brisket, sausage. I usually can't decide on what to get because I want a little bit of everything.

Cafe On The Route

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

The Parmesean potatoes were not as good as the Fried Potato Salad. The Sweet potatoes were creamy and well plated. It was a little party in your mouth with each bite. If you think you have a Twice baked before - try it here. It was airy and fluffy and full of flavor.

Woodyard BBQ

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

Get the pulled pork and the brisket here. Those are the best things you can do with yourself if you're within a miles reach of this place.

RJ's Bob-Be-Que

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

Went here with a guy who grew up in Mission, and it's his go-to place. I'd read about it, but never been. When I first moved to KC, I made a point to sample as many BBQ places as I could, both big names and neighborhood holes in the wall. But I never made it to RJ's.

Johnny's BBQ

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

We got there around 11am on a Sat before any crowds. Walked in and wasn't sure if we were to sit down or what. The girls at the counter pleasantly said to order here @ the counter and then they would bring our food out...3 of us got the burnt ends sandwiches, french fries and fried pickles.

tv show: Cupcake Wars

I have been emailing back and forth with a coworker about the very serious topic of cupcakes :) We were discussing places we've tried and she is convinced that Smallcakes is heaven on Earth. This cupcakery has been on my list of places to visit for many months. I have heard mixed reviews, but once she told me that she couldn't remember how many cupcakes she ate because everything was a (happy) blur after the first bite I knew I needed to get more serious about putting a check mark next to Smallcakes on my list. Lucky for me she surprised me and sent her husband on a mission to get me my very own $3 piece of heaven.

Papa Bob's Bar-B-Que

tv show: Man v. Food

Stopped in for dinner. It's as mom and pop as one can expect. The service was helpful and friendly. At our table we had ribs, turkey, pulled pork, and sausage. All were pleased with the meats. The sweet potato fries were crispy and delicious and the BBQ sauce was great.

This is honestly my favorite bbq place in the country. You can never go wrong with a Z-Man and fries, but I always try and fit in a few pork ribs as well. A can't miss. My last visit wasn't as good as the others unfortunately, but I still put this at the top for now.

tv show: Meat & Potatoes

The first review is of the old location that is now a Walgreen's - the current location is just a 100 yards or so east of there. The restaurant is nestled between a laundrymat and and a t-shirt shop so it's easy to miss.

tv show: The Best Thing I Ever Ate

I saw Stroud's featured on several Food Network shows and the chicken looked like the classic Southern Fried my mother used to make. It's not Mom's chicken, but it's pretty good. All the food was served piping hot and there's plenty of it! The chicken is obviously fried at a very hi temp, because it's crispy without being greasy.

Oklahoma Joe's

tv show: No Reservations

I have only eaten the Z-man at OK Joe's. That's all I will ever eat here because it is amazing!!! Crunchy onion rings on a bbq sandwich... BRILLIANT! The fries are also really good. Their seasoned salt which comes on the fries is very tasty. They also have diet Mt. Dew out of the fountain in Leawood, which almost warrants 5 stars on its own.
