Oklahoma Joes - A Brief Review

I had to stop by the KC BBQ store today in Olathe, KS and fortunately it's attached to one of my favorite BBQ joints here in Kansas City-Oklahoma Joes. I don't think I have ever eaten anything bad there. It is always consistently good.

I arrived today at 11:30am and to my surprise walked right up to the register (this is a rarity at lunch) to place my order. I moved to my right and received my order in about 3 minutes. It was nice not having to wait. They really have their process down.
I ordered the sliced brisket sandwich and a side of Cole slaw. The brisket was thinly sliced and had a nice but not overpowering smoke flavor to it. I normally don't order Cole slaw here because they're french fries are the best in town! For whatever reason, I went with the slaw today. It was good but I wished I had ordered the spicy version instead. I prefer that over the regular slaw. My total cost was $9.61 for the sandwich, slaw and drink.

The regular Cowtown sauce and the hotter, Night of the Living Cow, sauce were on the table. I've always been a fan of their regular sauce. It's sweet but has that peppery kick to it. It compliments all of their meats and is great to dip your fries into! I also used some of the Hot Sauce and enjoyed it as well. Its spice hits the front of your tongue first and then goes to your throat but it's minimal.

All in all, I enjoyed my meal today. That is why Oklahoma Joes is always one of my can't miss choices for BBQ in Kansas City.
