Best BBQ ribs I have ever had! The Restaurant is in a gas station, but there is a dinning area. And be prepared to wait in a line that goes out the door. Boulevard micro brewing company isn't so micro brew. Over 100,000 barrels a year ad growing. Went for a tour, which start at 12:30. And are about every hour till night. After you get to try the beer. I tried the IPA, wheat, hoppy wheat, lager, bull lager, amber, pale ale, tank 7, and something else, but it was hard to remember after. Good beers and a lot of fun in a group! Oklahoma Joe's BBQ! This place is a legend. Started in a gas station...and still in a gas station. Although they have new locations, this is the original. The line was about 75-100 people long, if that tells you anything. And the entire place was packed. I tried the ribs and a bite of the pork sandwich, both were amazing. Extremely well smoked. The fries have some seasoning that pretty sure is made of drugs. If you want KC BBQ, go here! Mouthwatering, hands down the greatest barbecue on Earth. #Delicious A must see in Kansas City, perfect for a rainy day like this. View of downtown Kansas City with Union Station in the forefront. The city in the spring is astoundingly beautiful. This was one of the best museams I've ever been to, tons of exhibits and lots at learn... Plus a Great View of the City A quiet little garden perfect for a warm afternoon. Tiny nautical exhibit. The entire case is less than 12 inches by 12 inches National World War I Museum, something you would expect to see in D.C. Yard games. #travel #KansasCity #Art #shuttlecocks #coolplaces Amazing cocktails and eye catching chandeliers in Kansas City. #Patterns coffee spot. Historic Site of the Battle of Westport, during the Civil War, also a paranormal hot spot. Kansas City boasts some excellent brews....beer and coffee!! The Roasterie is java headquarters for this town. Check out their free facility tour! #WeekendGetaway Spectacular setting on the hillside in Kansas City, Kansas. The WWI
Memorial is a wonderful display of tasteful art deco that includes a museum, a tower to climb, and two large doves on both sides of the tower. A Museum from the 1 WW. You also Can go up to the Tower. Kansas City Great free art museum and sculpture garden with rotating exhibits, cafe and gift shop on site. Free parking lot across the street. Come on half price Wednesdays to see this WWI museum, nationally recognized as one of the best. See the film, exhibits, then come to the roof to the Memorial with great views of Kansas City. #StunningStructures #Green Love coming here. The Thinker - Rodin Kansas City!! #lifeatexpedia Best ribs I ever tasted! Go to Oklahoma joes. Another favorite for brunch. I haven't had a bad meal here. Plenty of choices and reasonably priced. Relaxed vibe. Kansas City Trip - 2015 My favorite bar (and brunch spot) in Westport! Cozy atmosphere with great cocktails and a french-inspired menu. Also, the best bloody Mary's in town! After visiting this renowned museum, take the elevator and 40 steps up to the top of the memorial for this view of Kansas City below. While in town, come to this #1 rated BBQ joint in Kansas City that lives up to its rating. Just don't be put off by the location being in an old filling station and by the long lines.
