Located near Kansas City, Missouri's sports stadiums, L.C.'s is a no frills dive that operates inside a one-time gas station, with disposable tableware and limited tables. Customers order and pay at the counter, while getting a look at and whiff of the legendary smoker. Often crowded, LC's is a place where you should decide on your order quickly, after arriving. This is classic barbecue, from enormous sauce-doused burnt end sandwiches served on white bread to tender brisket with complex smoky flavor and crisp yet chewy burnt ends. Crisp-tender fries come in huge portions and there's cold, cheap beer in the refrigerator. Zesty sauce delivers sweetness and spice that isn't overly hot. Spicy fried green beans and baked beans are customer favorites too. Service can be uneven but devoted customers say the food is still worth a trip.

- Barbecue: "Don't let the price tags at L.C.'s BBQ Restaurant stop you. $13 buys a sandwich meal which delivers so much meat that it might be enough to feed several people – or hold over for lunch the next day."
- Best for Barbecue Because: This is a great place to get tailgating or takeout food; just allow plenty of time to retrieve your order.
