KC's Best – This is good bbq. Sure after reading some of the other revues about bad and rude service, it's simply not true. If you're not prepared for the "hi, how can I help you being shouted over the counter" sure it could maybe be misinterpreted for rude, but its always served up with a smile. The ribs are meaty and so GOOD. The sauces are the kicker, sweet, spicy, or mix them together.

Simply put, KC's best

Local thing? – Having heard about the famous Gates mystique for many years, it was one of the first places I stopped when I went to KC. I found it to be more of a BBQ McDonald's with a lot of shouting. The food was good but left me wondering where the magic was. Thinking it was the one I was at (by the Sports complex) I tried a couple of others. I must say they are consistent. However, I'm not complaining because I have to say I cleaned my plate every time.

Noisy and Rude! – Gates Bar-b-q at 3205 Main St. in Kansas City is concient to hospital hill and tourist centers down town K. C. I have been there several times with groups from a local employer. After the second visit, I started voting for some other choice to eat at. Gates is noisy, the help is very rude, and the facility is passibly clean.

Chin Wiping good – As a visitor to Kansas City, I was encouraged to partake of the Gates Bar-B-Q. I was most impressed with the very speedy service and the EXCELLENT food. The atmosphere was relaxed so I had a very enjoyable time.
