If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you probably have noticed a summer theme- BBQ. BBQ has got to be one of the best reasons to live in Kansas City. After drooling over some local joints Justin and I viewed on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives last weekend, we decided this summer to take a personal culinary tour of our city. The first stop, Johnny's BBQ.
Conveniently located off Johnson Drive in Mission, Kansas, Johnny's has some unique flavors which make it stand out from some of the other places in which we've dined. With perfect smoke rings on each rib, hints of cinnamon throughout the sweet succulent sauce, and it's own unique BBQ bottle decor, it is no wonder Guy Fieri had to stop on his visit to Kansas City.
We ordered the Friday night special- 1/2 smoked chicken, 1/2 slab of ribs, fries, pickles, and a choice of a side of slaw, beans, or potato salad. Since moving to Kansas City, Justin and I have fallen in love with the cabbagey cole slaw concoction and the combination of BBQ. So we got some slaw. Unfortunately, once the plates hit the table, we became so consumed with our meal we forgot to take pictures! In good humour, you can enjoy the leftovers or settle for just licking the plates:)
