We stopped by for dinner. They never disappoint. When you are in KC, BBQ is a must. Arthur Bryant is in the top tier. The original location is the best of their locations.

The best time to go is game day either the Royals and Chiefs. You will get more meat on your sandwiches. It's sloppy and good at the same time. I would always get ham and beef combo, you'll get enough bread for two more sandwiches....More

Grab your orange plastic tray and try to decide what to have? You will wonder how you can get a bite out of your sandwich. The beans are great as are the french fries. If there are 2 of you only order 1 french fries.;

There's no designated RV parking however the parking lot should accomodate the size of your coach. However, access and exiting very well could be a challenge.
