the 12 hours to KC to visit dad for Thanksgiving was made better, obviously by all the food that i got to eat. first stop was in memphis, for what else? bbq! this place was visited by guy fieri on DDD, and also named one of the top 10 places you have to eat. yums~ their sandwich had this amazing coleslaw on it, and they had the big fat french fries, my favorite kind! and of course the potato salad, but you all know about my love affair with potatoes, so i’ll leave it at that.
up next is oklahoma joe’s in KC. i mean, look at those onion rings. i dare you to find a better one, oh, cuz you can’t. it’s like a heart attack in a bag, but who cares. i had just the normal pork sandwich, which is what they’re known the most for, even though KC is supposed to be all about the beef bbq. i digress. the other sandwich is called “hog heaven,”which is pork and sausage all on the same sandwich. they also have this sandwich called the “z-man,” and it’s brisket, with provolone topped with two onion rings. nom nom.
the last place is called Flying Saucer, and it’s more of a bar than anything else, with lots of beer! it’s down in the power and light district, and don’t know how it got missed the first trip to the district. by this time, i was semi tipsy…..
hence the tater tot photo shoot…but in all fairness, these things are probably the best thing i have ever put in my mouth. they are cheese and pepper tater tots with habanero sour cream dip. rocket tots rule.
try all of them. but really try the tater tots. i can’t stop dreaming about them.
