The Daily Meal just released a list of America’s 35 Best Ribs

— and Kansas City pretty much dominated the Top 10.

Four local barbecue joints are among the food website’s top 10 picks for best ribs:

Jack Stack, Gates, Arthur Bryant’s and Oklahoma Joe’s


Jack Stack’s “sweet and smoky” ribs, which require “a little tug to get off the bone” according to The Daily Meal, took the No. 8 spot.

Gates came in at No. 4 for ribs “so good that you should consider eating them sauceless.”

Arthur Bryant’s won second place with ribs doused in “famous orange-red sauce made with double-strength pickling vinegar,” and Oklahoma Joe’s took the No. 1 spot with “postcard picture-perfect” ribs that The Daily Meal claims are “the best you’ll ever have.”
