Diners, Drive-ins and Dives is in Kansas tonight

Diners, Drive-ins and Dives is in Kansas tonight: RJ's Bob-Be-Que, Johnny's Hickory House Bar-B-Q and Woodyard Bar-B-Que in Johnson County and Smokin' Guns BBQ in Kansas City, Missouri

I have dined at all four of them. RJ's is my favorite.

I give Woodyard points for being a dive, but their meat is too smokey for my taste. Hours later, my mouth still has an unpleasant flavor, as if I had been chewing on charcoal.

I have reviews of two of the restaurants http://www.kansastravel.org/rjsbbqshack.htm www.kansastravel.org/olathe/johnnysbbq.htm (Olathe location, not the original which is visited tonight)

He was in Topeka last year and filmed at Bobo's Drive-in (10th and MacVicar) if you're ever wanting to try it. I think it was on the show about 8-10 weekd after they were here filming, and I wasn't home that night so never did see it.

I've been to Bobo's and have a page about it.

I like finding places before his team does:-)

We did a watch party Monday night with food from two of the restaurants on the show.

I had no idea he was going to be in the KC area...glad the producers saw some potential here in the midwest to do 2 filmings in the area :)

The show has had other Kansas places. The ones that I know are Cafe on the Route in Baxter Springs and BBQ Shack in Paola.

I have never seen either episode, but always know when the Route 66 episode runs because the visits to my review of that place spike.

He was at Brint's Diner here in Wichita a few years ago. Three or four maybe?
