The barbecue joint, which also has locations in Leawood and Olathe, is the only Kansas City-area restaurant on the list, which was determined by online reviews.
Almost half of the restaurants on Yelp’s list are based in California. Three are in St. Louis: Bogart’s Smokehouse (No. 19), Blues City Deli (No. 29) and Pappy’s Smokehouse (No. 98).
According toYelp’s blog
, Oklahoma Joe’s and the other 99 restaurants are “the ultimate, try-before-you-die, food-coma-inducing, so-good-it-makes-you-want-to-slap-your-momma places.”
Apparently “Bachelor” star Juan Pablo Galavis agrees —he ate there with girlfriend and Kearney native Nikki Ferrell
on the show this week.
“Ah man,” he said on the show, “I’d get fat eating that barbecue every day.”
