Gates Bar-B-Q, Kansas City, MO
Don’t be turned off by the fast-food trappings in this chain; the pits here are for real, and the stellar burnt ends and ribs,
especially when spiked with spoonfuls of cumin-laced, almost marinara-like sauce, make it a must for anyone touring to the
heart of K.C. ‘cue.
