Unpretentious barbecue restaurant / Carne asada sin pretensiones

Nothing like an old-fashion bbq joint for democratic, honest-food enjoyment. There is a lot of satisfaction to be had in unpretentious restaurants.


Honest barbecue place

Arthur Bryant’s bbq, Kansas City, Missouri, USA (2006). En Roma, como hacen los romanos. Y en Kansas City, Missouri? En Kansas City se impone una visita a un tugurio de carne asada. Por ejemplo, Arthur Bryant’s,  un restaurante para ir con hambre y sin muchos miramientos, ideal para un almuerzo antes de ver un juego de beisbol de los Reales.  La comida honesta, sin aspavientos ni pretensiones, otorga una experiencia democrática. Aquí comparten mesas los que compran en gradas o en primera fila, los que vienen en BMW’s o los que llegan en Ford.  Se come con gusto, rápido y sabroso; la sobremesa es corta o inexistente, recogemos nuestros platos y nos retiramos para dar espacio a los próximos comensales. Las poses relajadas de los tres mosqueteros arriba fueron capturadas en foto por la Sra. Lisbeth Coiman *


In Rome, do like the Romans do. How about in Kansas City, Missouri? In Kansas City… well, a visit to a BBQ joint is a must!  You gotta be hungry when going to Arthur Bryant’s , an ideal stop before any of the Royal’s games. Here the food is honest, unpretentious, without a fuss, and it is a truly democratic experience. Tables are shared by those who buy tickets for the bleachers and those who have front row seats, those who come driving BMW’s and those who drove Fords. You eat voraciously, quickly and deliciously; table talk is short or almost nonexistent.  We collect the dishes, tidy up and leave room for the next group of guests. The relaxed pose of the three musketeers above, was captured in picture by Ms. Lisbeth Coiman *
