Why is Kansas City so great?
3. Barbecue. It's the one thing Kansas City does better than anywhere else in the country. There are more barbecue joints here than you can shake a stick at, and no matter what kind you like, you'll find it here. My personal favorite, is a Z-man sandwich from Oklahoma Joe's. (Yes, I do realize the irony there.) It's located in a gas station and, on any given day, the line will snake through the building, out into the parking lot. The line always seems to go fast, and the food is SOOO worth the wait. (photo by Matt McCabe.) They have several other locations, but I'd go
If you need something more upscale, Jack Stack is my second choice.
So while you're here for the KC Irish Fest, you can grab some great Boulevard beer, and some great BBQ.
