KC's Classiest Barbecue
Kansas City is most famous for its barbecue: Bring up the topic, and locals will declare loyalties and dig in. If you’re downtown, the best barbecue experience is Fiorella’s Jack Stack in the Freight House District across the tracks from Union Station. Famous for its burnt ends, hickory pit beans, and the best cheesy corn bake you’ll ever taste, you can keep it on the lighter side while experiencing Kansas City barbecue. Order the smoked turkey sandwich (or try the grilled chicken and fish items at the bottom of the menu), then sub out the fries for the vegetable kabob (ask for it without pit butter). Delicious without damaging your waistline.
