  Gates BarBQ
by basstbn

Barbecue is king in Kansas City, and Ollie Gates is one of the reasons why!! There is no better barbecue in town. Consistently good food, clean and comfortable restaurants and decent prices keep the crowds coming. "Hi, may I help you?" is shouted out to you as soon as you get in line. (I sometimes wonder how they keep all the orders straight - but don't think I've ever received the wrong thing.)

Favorite Dish: I like the burnt ends, but the ribs are quite popular, as well. Gates has several excellent sauces, all available for sale at local grocery stores, souvenir shops, etc.

Address: Several in the city; this one at Linwood and Main.
