The Rub or Oklahoma Joe’s?

Kansas City is known for their unique style of BBQ, which means Kansas City has an abundant amount of BBQ joints, but which ones are really worth eating at? The controversy question of which joint to eat at has brought up the question of which is better. Both The Rub and Oklahoma Joe’s are local restaurants with a similar style of sandwiches and platters. Lets take a look at the differences between the two.

The Rub, which is located at 10512 S. Ridgeview Rd. Olathe, KS 66061, has an amazing variety of side dishes to choose from. Along with great side dishes, The Rub offers sandwiches of different kinds of meat including pulled pork, chicken, sausage, ham, and turkey. Something that The Rub offers that is rare for a BBQ joint is pork tacos, not unheard of, just rare. Along with the rare pork tacos, The Rub also has a children’s menu, which is really good for attracting families with children.

Oklahoma Joe’s, which is located at two different sites, the original being at 3002 W 47th Ave Kansas City, KS, and the other at 11950 S Strang Line Rd Olathe, KS, has an good variety of meals to choose from. Oklahoma Joe’s offers sandwiches in pulled pork, turkey, ham, and beef brisket. The best part about Oklahoma Joe’s is that you can combine two meats onto one sandwich. Even though Oklahoma Joe’s doesn’t offer pork tacos, and doesn’t have a kid’s menu, they offer chicken gumbo. Along with buying sandwiches from there, you can also buy meat by the pound.
