403 Club in KCK and Pizza West/Knub's Pub in Shawnee are the spots to hit.
I really like Gates sauce as well as Bryant's and Joe's, but there's nothing at Gates that's the best IMO. I think Joe's has the best pulled pork and fries, Jack Stack has the best beans, Bryant's for the brisket, and maybe McGonigle's for ribs. Because of that I don't find myself going to Gates often.
