Oklahoma Joe's

3002 W. 47th Ave., Kansas City, KS - (913) 722-3366
We loved the Smokie Joe sandwich, which is a combination of beef and pork cosseted in excellent sauce that is slightly sweet with a pepper tingle that made my taste buds want to dance to the blues music that is always playing on the sound system. The pork itself is fantastic – the gal behind the counter insisted I try some NOT bound in sauce. It is sweet, tender, juicy, and radiant with smoke flavor.

A close view of the jumbo Smokie Joe sandwich, a combination of beef and pork. While the plain pulled pork is great sauceless, in this sandwich meat and sauce are inextricable.

French fries are crisp-edged with a rich potato flavor. They are served in abundance.

Excellent sliced brisket sandwich, topped with smoked provolone and onion rings (!) and served on a roll.

As is custom in barbecue places hereabouts, tables are outfitted with rolls of paper towels because a single napkin, or even a few, would not be up to the challenge of such messy eating.

Fuel up, stock up, and eat up at this all-purpose corner store. At the pumps, the smell of hickory wood vastly overpowers gasoline fumes.
