Oklahoma Joes is in the national spotlight. Yep, again.
By Sarah Gish
This morning USA Today published a list of Americas Tastiest Ribs. At the top: KCKs own gas station/barbecue joint.
The ribs roundup, which was originally published in The Daily Meal in May, calls the barbecue at Oklahoma Joes simply the best.
Boasting a deeply burnished shade of red thanks to a rub heavy with paprika, cumin, brown sugar, and chili powder, these ribs also happen to be picture-postcard-perfect to look at, and you'll most likely find yourself snapping a photo of them before you even take that first bite.
As for the taste: Moist, juicy, smoky, tender all those adjectives you thought you knew the definition of will only conjure one image in your mind from here on out: Oklahoma Joe's pork ribs. They're the best you'll ever have.
Oklahoma Joes is also leading in our readers poll, with 409 out of 873 votes as of noon today. Jack Stack is in second place, followed by Gates and Arthur Bryants. Dont see your favorite smokehouse on the list? Vote or comment here.
