AB is a greasy filthy pit that is long past its prime. Jack's Stack and Oklahoma joe's are far better, both in taste and surroundings.

If it was a list of 101 restaurants to avoid I would agree unless you're a fan of fat greasy cheap cuts of meat. As the previous critics mentioned KC has many other BBQ joints to pick from and as far as I'm concerned they're all better than Arthur Bryant's.

Arthur Bryants is a far better BBQ joint than can be found in many locations in the US, but for KC, PLEASE! Smokehouse BBQ consistently outshines AB's both in atmospere and quality of food. I have gone to AB's many times and it seems as if every time I go they get worse and worse.
While I appreciate the senitment that a BBQ joint could make it this high on a list of "best restaurants" I think the list would be much better served with the best BBQ in KC.... SMOKEHOUSE BBQ.

Calvin Trillin called it the best restaurant in the world. My sister calls it the grossest (a greasy thumbprint in her sandwich 30 years ago left its mark). My humble opinion is it's great BBQ but they shouldn't have opened new locations. Stick to the original location downtown, 17th and Brooklyn. And try Jack Stack and Oklahoma Joe's -- the natives consistently rate them higher.

Should be #1
