BBQ Joint
“This was on Anthony Bourdain’s 13 places to eat before you die! This location is about 30 minutes away. This Restaurant started in this gas station and now they have two other locations in Olathe and Leawood Kansas. The Z Man BBQ sandwich is a local favorite plus the French fries are the BEST! ”

“Amazing BBQ with one of the best beer garden's in Westport. BBQ trays (pick 2 or 3 meats), jalapeno cheesy-corn bake, crispy jo-jo potatoes are some of our favorite items. Grab some BBQ / beer and head out to their patio if the weather is nice. Sunday fried chicken is also popular (available noon until it is sold out). ”
