LC’s is unmatched in smoke and seasoning. While there are bars on the window, we like to think they’re there to protect the best-seasoned ribs in Kansas City. The smell of meat hits you the moment you walk into this roadside joint—it’s all coming from the hickory smoker that’s right behind the counter, and there’s a sign reminding you not to lean on the counter while ogling the beautiful smoker. 

You’ll get a styrofoam plate filled with their tender burnt ends and crispy fries, and you should pile on their famous sauce and mop it all up with slices of Wonder Bread. Their homemade pork sausage couldn’t be more different from the processed franks elsewhere—you can really taste the smoke and the spices and see the finely ground chunks of meat in the casing. These are hands-down the best sausages in town.
