The Original Arthur Bryant's Barbecue KCMO

This is a picture of me waiting in line for some Arthur Bryant's barbecue in Kansas City Missouri. This photo tells you a few things: I am not in Texas in my kitchen baking. I am one of those crazies who will wait in line for over an hour for good food. I am significantly shorter than the general population.

What this photo doesn't tell you: The line curved all the way around the building. It was 42 degrees outside. The people seated inside were taunting us with their barbecue sauce covered smiles through the window. It was 12:02 PM.

It was 12:34 when we finally made it to the entrance.

12:49...I finally see some meat!!!

See that wonderful gentleman right there? He's slicing up the beef for my sandwich. I may have teared up a little at that sight.

1:13 PM. Mr. Incredible and I are seated and digging in. He had the burnt end sandwich and baked beans. I scarfed down a beef brisket sandwich with sour pickles and a side of fries.

It was so worth the wait. The Original Arthur Bryants 1725 Brooklyn Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri.


  1. I love this place! Oh my goodness it's soooo delicious :D I need to find a recipe for sauce like theirs!

  2. I am planning to come Kansas City in next month. Then I'll definitely visit this place.
