1. KC Joe's Slab of Ribs and Fries

This dry rub of ribs is a Kansas city classic with some BBQ sauce. The fries are also a must-try.

2. Peanut's Wings

I don't think there's any other place that I'm willing to wait a minimum of 20 minutes for wings, but be patient, because trust me, it's well worth the wait! These wings are not too spicy, large, such that eating half a dozen is actually a feat, and the manner it is prepared is amazing.

3.Rico's Taco Lupe Tacos

This small little shop is definitely a little gem of KC. Their tacos are street style with an assortment of choices for meat such as chorizo, chicken, and steak that is so flavorful it will make your mouth watering for more.
