My father and I are planning to come to Kansas City to see the 49ers/Chiefs game this year and I figured I'd ask a couple questions here.

First off we are looking for possibly the BEST BBQ joint in town, just so long it isn't too pricey. We have decided to check out Chapell's for sure since it seems to be popular and plus the museum looks awesome. What are some other places you recommend we eat at? Does any of the places sell BBQ sauce?

What should I know about tailgating or Arrowhead before hand?

What are some other sites to see around KC?

I'm really excited to come home to KC. I was born there and my family left when I was two so it's going to be an awesome experience. We'll be coming all the way from Orlando, FL. I've only seen the Chiefs at Tampa, Jacksonville and Atlanta and now finally where it matters most. I'll be seeing the home we had when we lived there and of course cap it off with a win over the '9ers.

Any info or anything anyone posts will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

We will have chiefscrowd members at the 49ers game and there will be tailgaating, so come join us.
As far as BBQ, Gates and Bryants are the most popular, although there are several others that are real good.

I agree with pbatrucker that Gates and Bryants are the best, my personal favorite is gates. The times I have been to Kansas City hasn't been for more than a day or two just to catch a game so I don't know of too many toursist attractions, I've heard that you can gamble on the river, I'm not too sure about that though which is something that I would like to check out when I go up there later this year. I enjoyed going down through the plaza, a lot of shops and things to do.

For tailgating come join us, Chiefs fans are more then welcome! The MNF game will be my first Arrowhead tailgating experience so I am looking forward to it, especially with these guys here on the forum. Enjoy your time in KC. :bananen_smilies046: :chiefs:

Who says they are the most popular?

Jack Stack is the best and for some Reason Oklahoma Joes is a favorite (not mine though).

Gates is fast food BBQ with a BBQ sauce that kills any flavor the meat had. If you have bland BBQ, through some Gates on there and it taste better. Good BBQ does not require BBQ sauce.

I have not eaten at Bryants, but I have had their sauce. That was enough for me to never go there.

We went to Gates last Oct. and it was great! We are looking to try a different one this year. Maybe make it the "thing to do" while in K.C. New BBQ place each time. I also heard something about Oklahoma Joes I think?

If you come to the Monday Night Home opener, you can try some home made BBQ... The only complaint I have ever heard of my BBQ came from myself.

I think we are going to eat at Jack Stack since we are visiting Country Club Plaza during our trip. I love BBQ so I'm sure no place would of disappointed. Thanks for all the recommendations.

Hope to see some you at the tailgate before the 49ers game.

The Plaza Jack Stack is Nice, but you need to go the Freight house down town, by Union Station. There is a certain Mistique eating there with the history and everything that went through that building.

I have to agree with you, as I wasn't impressed the times I've eaten either place. They're not 'bad' BBQ, but far from what I consider the best. I actually prefer Zarda BBQ over Gates or Bryants. I've not eaten at Jack Stack, but everyone I know who has say it's very good.

I've often found the best BBQ joints are the small less known out of the way BBQ places. Problem is...I can't remember their names, cause they are less known, and I've not eaten at any in KC in quite a while.

I also prefer a sweeter sauce if using sauce, neither of which Gates or Bryants are. I like KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce, but I mix a bit of brown sugar into it before using it when I need a BBQ sauce at home.

Don't take my word for it...just ask the NFL film crews, and they'll tell ya Arrowheads parking lot has the most delicious aroma & tailgating food of any stadium! Don't miss the opportunity to meet the best of the best Chiefs fans at Arrowhead...that would be US...Chiefs Crowd members! HA!

I already got my Chiefs red ready. I'll have my Montana and Derrick Thomas jersey for us to wear.

I'm looking forward to seeing the tailgate experience. I've heard you can still smell the bar-b-q in the air after the game starts.

You mix brown sugar into KC masterpiece. Really. It is already loaded with sugar which is why it burns so easily if you grill it.

I might have a sauce you will need to try. I am not sure I have it anymore because no one in my family eats the sweet stuff, but it was very sweet but also had a little kick to it.

OH you can smell it. When you get to the gates, roll down your window. It is a memory that sticks with you forever. You will smell the smoke some where else and wish you were at the game. The music will stick with you too. I can't listen to "Start Me Up" by the Rolling stones without getting excited.

Oh yeah! It lingers amazingly so! If you get caught in stadium traffic on I-70, have your windows rolled down, even a few miles away if the wind is blowing towards you...you'll smell it! Shoot, now my tummy is growling just thinking about it, hahaha.

No, I didn't explain thorough enough, haha...I don't add a bit of brown sugar to KC Masterpiece if using it while grilling meats. I do though when using it in my baked beans, sweet & sour sauce for meatballs, wings sweet BBQ sauce...foods like that when using a BBQ sauce.

I'm the same way! With 'Black Betty' too! If they play 'Bawitdaba' at Arrowhead, which they sometimes do...Warning!...back away if standing close to me when Bawitdaba is played...you might get hair whipped if my hair is down, especially if I've had a couple beers, lol.

Okay the Masterpiece makes since now. To be honest, the only think I think Masterpiece is good for is for the items you described. Meatballs, Little Doggies and Baked Beans. It isn't bad on grilled Chicken but that is it.

Black Betty never did it for me. I was kind of upset when they started using it. Ozzie Ozborns Crazy Train was used before Black Betty. That sticks in my mind.

Well, the one that REALLY gets me pumped up is the 'Warchant'...even though it's not an upbeat tempo, it gives me goosebumps! hahaha
