Great Sandwiches here.  This was my first vinegar based BBQ,  great BBQ for some, good BBQ for others, but still an acquired taste.

LC’s BBQ 5800 Blue Pkwy Kansas City, MO 64121 US Review
My trip had great ribs and burnt ends, but a party member had fried mushrooms that were uncooked and frozen so stick with the BBQ.

My first Memphis style rib joint.  Amazing, but surprised to see the rub sprinkled over the sauce. Great first stop in Memphis style BBQ and then adventure into more interesting local restaurants and BBQ pits all throughout the city.
