For me there's nothing better than perfectly smoked brisket. Wait, the Z-Man is smothered in cheese and topped with onion rings? I take that back, it does get better. This sandwich is everything you could want between two slices of bread and more.
Frank Luciano - The Sultan of Sandwich

In a city filled with legendary BBQ, Joe’s Kansas City has not only stood out on a local level, but on a national platform as well. Winning numerous BBQ contests in their early years, Joe’s was named “Nation’s Best BBQ” by USA Today in 2015. Their original Kansas City location, which is connected to a gas station convenience store, has become a destination for BBQ lovers, so much so that the Travel Channel called Joe’s the Top Roadside eatery in the country. While their brisket, burnt ends and ribs garner plenty of attention, the true standout at this meat Mecca is the iconic Z-Man Sandwich—slow-smoked beef brisket, smoked provolone cheese, topped with two crispy onion rings and slathered in BBQ sauce, on a toasted Kaiser roll. What more can you ask for?
