Oklahoma Joe's could be the best gas station restaurant in the entire midwest! What's even better, there's a liquor store attached to the gas station, so you can meet all of your basic needs in one stop. Oklahoma Joe's has been winning awards for outstanding barbecue in Kansas City for almost a decade - and that's no mean feat! The sauce here is in the classic Kansas City style: deeply smoked, a touch of hickory, slightly sweet, with dashes of pepper and vinegar. I think their pulled pork sandwich is outstanding! Oklahoma Joe's is actually in Kansas City Kansas, but it's only a few minutes from the Plaza and Westport. If you are on the K.C. Barbecue pilgrimage, you shouldn't miss this one!
