Kansas City is known across the country for their BBQ, there’s no doubt about that. In fact, you can even book your ticket on a tour that will take you by bus to the most delicious BBQ spots around. Pretty cool, right? While all of that is great, there is more to Kansas City cuisine besides burnt ends and slabs of ribs.
