In a poll conducted by a KC polling firm, Fiorella’s Jack Stack edged out Joe’s Kansas City for KC-area residents’ favorite barbecue joint. Gates came in third, Arthur Bryant’s fourth, and LC’s finished sixth. Interestingly, when broken out by gender, Joe’s just nips Jack Stack among men. Those polled also named beef brisket, by a hair over pork ribs, as their favorite barbecued meat and baked beans as the decisive side of choice. We like ’em all but we’ll take burnt ends at LC’s.
