Every time I go to Kansas City, I must eat barbecue because it is one of the things they are known for. After research, I found out that the number one barbecue restaurant was Oklahoma Joe’s. Therefore, I decided to go and try it myself. The restaurant is small and it is attached to a gas station. Firstly, parking was completely full and it was so hard to find a spot. Secondly, the line was out the door and I literally stood in line for 45 minutes. Let me just tell you that the food was good but it was not worth standing in line for 45 minutes. The barbecue sauce was decent; I personally didn’t think it was special. The ribs, the smoked turkey, and the red beans and rice were delicious. The burnt end sandwich on the other hand, was not even good. It was literally just chopped beef and not the actual burnt end. I must say that we were highly disappointed. The french fries tasted pretty good but not for a barbecue side. They were literally like Cajun fries and we did not think it was a good combination.
We also went to Worlds of Fun which is an amusement park. The park was open until midnight and it was literally like an entire haunted house. The entire amusement park had smoke machines to make it seem like fog. Their staff was dressed in Halloween customs and they had spider webs and skulls everywhere. The way the park was set up made the entire experience Halloween creepy and thrilling. On top of that, their roller coasters are super fun. The lines were very short and we were able to ride all the roller coasters twice.
