Arthur Bryant's: One Chance, What to Eat?
Gonna be in KC for a short time, and I'm going to Arthur Bryant's, partially for the food, partially for the history, but I'm set on that place. Having said that, if this is my one and only time there, what should I have? Ribs? Pulled pork? Burnt end sandwich?
I know I'll get fifty opinions (or I hope so, anyway), but I'd love to hear all of them.
Yeah, I think if you get ribs, pulled pork, an a burnt end sandwich that would be a good start.
But if I could only get one item, it would be as steveb describes below, brisket sandwich, sauce on the side. I would add on a half slab of ribs or a 1/2 lb burnt ends. Burnt ends are fairly unique to KC BBQ. BBQ makes a delightful late night snack.
The burnt ends are my favorite by far. Don't bother with the sliced pork, and the pulled pork isn't as good as the ends. I agree that you should get a sandwich though. The fries are great. Here are 2 pics from my last trip there. First one is burnt ends and sliced pork, second is pulled pork and burnt ends.
There are a couple other AB's pics in that set if you want to see what the place looks like.
