Arthur Bryant's - World Famous
When Arthur Bryant died in December of 1982, all of Kansas City mourned. The unofficial "King of Ribs" often proudly referred to his restaurant at 18th and Brooklyn as 'the grease house', but whatever you call it, Bryant's was and is the best of the best when it comes to Kansas City barbeque. Bryant created a sauce that since the early 1930's has been the favorite of presidents, movie stars, athletes and hundreds of thousands of common folk. After his death, the business was sold to two local K.C. businessmen who since 1983 have focused on one thing only - preserving the Arthur Bryant tradition and taste. Today, at four locations, including the Birmingham Rd. restaurant at Kansas City International Airport, the King of Ribs still reigns supreme!
